AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It: Chapter Two proves bigger doesn't always mean scarier for horror sequels, but a fine cast and faithful approach to the source material keep this follow-up afloat.

Movie Info

Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club in a return to where it all began with "IT Chapter Two," the conclusion to the highest-grossing horror film of all time. Twenty-seven years after the Losers Club defeated Pennywise, he has returned to terrorize the town of Derry once more. Now adults, the Losers have long since gone their separate ways. However, kids are disappearing again, so Mike, the only one of the group to remain in their hometown, calls the others home. Damaged by the experiences of their past, they must each conquer their deepest fears to destroy Pennywise once and for all...putting them directly in the path of the clown that has become deadlier than ever.

Critic Reviews for It Chapter Two

All Critics (346) | Top Critics (45)

Trimming the adults' often soppy individual narratives to focus on their more interesting dynamic as a group might have mitigated some of the numbness that sets in from predictability.

Not unlike the town in which it's set, Muschietti's It only sees what it wants to.

Top Critic

The result is a film with all the unsettling power and visual elan of the kiddy-friendly Goosebumps series (Jack Black + monsters = zzzz).

September 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"It" never decides which fears to take at face value and which exist only in the subconscious, and winds up confused as a result.

September 6, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's obvious that the filmmakers failed to fully reckon with what they've put on the screen, and the results are grim.

September 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall, "It Chapter Two" is a fitting companion piece to the first film. There are flaws, to be sure, but nothing you wouldn't expect going in.

September 6, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
