Who is Who in IT – Chapter 2

It chapter 2 poster clown
Editor’s Note: I don’t known what “IT” is, and I don’t want to. #[email protected]

IT: Chapter 2 opens this week, promising bigger scares and more blood than the first part.  (Is that even possible?)  If you’re like me, you haven’t visited these Stephen King characters since the first IT movie came out two years ago.

IMPORTANT: IT Chapter 2 is almost 3 hours long…you’re going to need to know your Peetimes. Okay, let’s get going on the who is who in case you forgot.

I’ve included photos of the before and after of the cast, shown as kids and adults.

Do you remember the child characters?  

So, here’s a refresher on who’s who in “The Losers Club” to get you caught up before Pennywise strikes again:

Bill Denbrough 

  • played by Jaeden Martell as a child
  • played by James McAvoy as an adult
Bill is Georgie’s older brother.  He is the leader of the group, bent on avenging his brother’s death.  He stutters, and has a crush on Beverly.

Beverly Marsh 

  • played by Sophia Lillis as a child
  • played by Jessica Chastain as an adult

Beverly is a tomboy.  She has a strict, abusive father and is part of a love triangle between Bill and Ben.  She has the vision of the group returning to fight Pennywise as adults.

Ben Hanscom 

  • played by Jeremy Ray Taylor as a child
  • played by Jay Ryan as an adult

Ben is the poet.  He is Beverly’s secret admirer who writes her the poem on the postcard.  Ben pieces together a lot of the town’s history.

Richie Tozier 

  • played by Finn Wolfhard as a child
  • played by Bill Hader as an adult (I so approve of this casting!)
Richie is the joker of the group, funny and foul-mouthed.  He and Bill have a huge fight after nearly getting killed at the Well House.  But they reconcile to save Beverly.

Mike Hanlon 

  • played by Chosen Jacobs as a child
  • played by Isaiah Mustafa as an adult
Mike is the loyal friend.  He is bonded with the members of The Losers Club for life.  He is also the one member who never left Derry.  (We learn this in the previews.) Mike joins the club when the others defend him from Henry and his gang.

Eddie Kaspbrak

  • played by Jack Dylan Grazer as a child
  • played by James Ransone as an adult
Eddie is the hypochondriac of the group.  He is reluctant to go into the sewers.  His arm gets broken during an encounter with Pennywise.  Eddie eventually stands up to both his controlling mother and to Pennywise.

Did you know Coulrophobia means fear of clowns? I bet they do.

Stanley Uris 

  • played by Wyatt Oleff as a child
  • played by Andy Bean as an adult
Stan is the voice of reason.  He is often the most cautious, reluctant to go in the sewers, and opting to stand guard outside the creepy house rather than go inside.

Pennywise CAN SEE YOU. OMG. F#cking clowns.

Movie Review – It (Chapter 1)

Movie Review - ItNormally RunPee Sis sees the horror films like this, but since she lives in Orlando she’s in hurricane prep mode right now — her own horror movie. So I’ve been pressed into duty.

Both the critics (90%) and users (92%) at RottenTomatoes.com gave this movie high marks. Personally, I was a little bored by the predictable nature of the story, but like I said, not my cup of tea.

I was impressed by the acting performances. Especially from Sophia Lillis (as Beverly Marsh). I think she has a long career ahead of her.

I never read the book, so I can’t say if it remains true to the source.

Sorry I can’t give you more, but as I said, critics and users alike give the movie high marks, so I guess it’s a good horror film.

Grade: A-

About The Peetimes: I would recommend using the 1st Peetime if you can. But, the 2nd Peetime is nearly as good. The 3rd Peetime is short – the climatic battle at the end of the movie begins just as the Peetime ends.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of It. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Rated (R) for violence/horror, bloody images, and for language
Genres: Drama, Horror, Thriller

Buy the movie from Amazon.com on DVD or Blu Ray
