The film has been described as a loss of innocence story, with fear, mortality and survivalist themes. Muschietti remarked of the film’s elements of coming of age and issues of mortality, adding that such themes are prevalent in King’s book, though in reality they occur in a more progressive way, “There’s a passage [in It] that reads, ‘Being a kid is learning how to live and being an adult is learning how to die.’ There’s a bit of a metaphor of that and it just happens in a very brutal way, of course.” He also mentioned the characterization of Pennywise’s survivalist attitude, and a passage in the novel which inspired Muschietti was when Bill wonders if Pennywise is eating children simply because that is what people are told monsters do, “It’s a tiny bit of information, but that sticks with you so much. Maybe it is real as long as children believe in it. And in a way, Pennywise’s character is motivated by survival. In order to be alive in the imagination of children, he has to keep killing. While Muschietti acknowledged It being a horror film, he felt that it is not simply that, “It’s a story of love and friendship and a lot of other beautiful emotions.”
The graphic sexual content that was in the novel and Fukunaga’s original script was not included in the film.
I had the pleasure of seeing an advanced screening of IT in Brisbane. The film is absolutely brilliant. Bill Skarsgård has taken Pennywise and made the role his own. Creepy, disturbing, humorous, IT really possess the creep factor, giving audiences a new reason to fear clowns.
The entire casting choices were sensational. All actors really held their own, creating a sense of comradery between the characters.
Like most people, I do hold the miniseries with Tim Curry close to my heart, but after seeing this adaptation, I was beyond pleasantly surprised. So much so that upon IT being released into cinemas, I’ll be back in line to see it again.
