| Better for Younger
For a younger audience, unjaded by so many horror and suspense flicks, this movie will probably be creepier. This version of the story is somewhat a victim of itself. So many derivatives have occurred over the years, many from King novels, including this one, that this remake suffers as somewhat less of the same. At my 55 years of age, it just never hit a fear climax. Sure, some great scenes, just not enough impact. For the younger audience, I expect it would be great. Also, perhaps by the edit- down for the screen play, the story seemed to leave a lot of plot holes uncompleted, and seemed to violate its own plane of existence. Appropriate for Netflix, or a young couple on a date.

Trivia

The refrigerator scene was filmed involving Bill Skarsgård partially contorting his body and CGI. Attached to wires, Skarsgård was filmed lying at the bottom of the refrigerator on his back to which the wires would pull him out of the refrigerator and rotate his body as he steps out. His actual body was digitally removed and replaced with a digital body. Portions of the body were digitally built in order for limbs and body parts to be maneuvered in various and intricate ways. The unfolding was hand-animated. Skarsgård's head ultimately remained intact in the shot. VFX supervisor Arnaud Brisebois states, "I actually suggested to my animation supervisor Yvon Jardel that he animate in reverse." He mentions further, "Pennywise would step back into the fridge so that he can push himself inside. It gave a better choreography to enter and fold onto itself than to try and do it the other way." Brisebois says that he knew this was going to become an iconic horror shot.
