Watch How ‘It Chapter Two’ Revisits a Drain of Terror | Anatomy of a Scene

  • Published: 06 September 2019
  • We’re not finished with that storm drain just yet. There’s more sadness (and horror) to be found inside of it in this scene from “It Chapter Two,” the second installment of the big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s chilling novel.

    Here, the character Bill Denbrough (played as an adult by James McAvoy) has found his old bike in the town of Derry, Me., and takes it for a spin. This trip down memory lane leads him on a journey through darker memories, back to the day his younger brother, Georgie, was fatally wounded at a storm drain.

    In his narration, the director Andy Muschietti discusses the scene’s meaning, and how he opted for a visual effects assist to capture one particularly dreadful moment.

                  This scene proves that Bill still thinks about Georgia even almost 3 decades later. He still believed that he might have been able to save him if he was there with him when Georgie encountered Pennywise that day.

                                                      I have a theory that pennywise's like Jeepers creepers the creeper you know how what when Georgie was there he said he's coming I feel like when pennywise kills someone and takes them there still a part of him so when he took his form which Bill already knows and means that Georgie actually had a voice pennywise takes a fictional character something that isn't real that someone fears then he has total control over it but if he's doing something like Georgie Georgie asked to come and talk to him
