I only have one request and it's likely not happening anyway but still - that a certain part in the book doesn't make it into the movie BECAUSE NO FUCKING THANK YOU.

God, I can't wait for the Castle Rock show because I've always been intrigued by Derry and why the supernatural is drawn to the town (mostly because of It but the town's backstory is fascinating).

There's no way in hell that scene will ever make it in. In this day and age? No chance.

Yeah, in this day and age, people are waaayy to PC to be able to handle a child orgy. Wimps.

I hadn't heard anything about that scene being included and I'd be surprised if it was because... well, yeah. Even if it wasn't explicit, it's still pretty fucked up.

What scene? D:

(Anonymous) 2017-03-20 11:11 pm (UTC)(link)
There's a scene at the end where the kids confront It in the sewers and for some reason the girl in the group ends up fucking all the boys in a weird teenage gangbang.

Not even teenagers. Weren't they all like 10 or 12 or something?

(Anonymous) 2017-03-20 11:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah, maybe. I don't remember their exact ages.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-21 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
They're about 12, I believe.

I looked up "Stephen King that scene it" because I figured that would be a close enough search term. I found a top-five list with that scene as #1: This thread is also insightful:

Ah, yes, the magical adolescent vagina scene. I love me some Stephen King, but that was definitely a WTF, dude? read.

It was fucking awful. It was the beginning of the death spiral of my love for King's word--and prior to Shit, I'd memorized them all. That fucking book needed an editor, SK was way too in love with the sound of his own voice and THAT SCENE. Oh my God, what in the fresh hell was he thinking?!?! They want to show their love to make it out of the sewers so they run a TRAIN on Beverly???? Seriously?? It's so fucking disgusting. Not LEAST because there is the strong hint that Beverly has been sexually abused, or that her father is thinking about it (it's inconsistently handled in the book). King has some *weird* issues with women, and girls.

I don't feel like it's necessary to get into where It came from. I've never been a fan of eventually gendering it as female either.

They're remaking IT? I had no idea.

This is that one movie that scarred me for LIFE. I wasn't allowed to watch it, but a friend had loaned a VHS copy to my sister and they were watching it in the living room when me and my little brother cracked the door and peeked in. Cue me being scared of storm drains, shower drains, and showers in general for years and years to come.

Oddly enough, clowns have never bothered me.

Honestly I often think that if you want a really creepy villain it's best to not have much backstory at all. Any psychologisation or explanation tends to make it less scary.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-20 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
I think in this case, the small hints that It was an ancient evil that had been in Ferry, influencing people for decades was an effective backstory by itself. I think that was better than spelling it out.

You know what, I just want some skit or short or something about all the Ancient Evils coming to Earth on the same frickin' asteroid, and like fighting with each other about space and being really petty.

Yeah, there's some stuff in the book that doesn't need to be in the film.

(Anonymous) 2017-03-21 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
Actually, there's a lot in the book that isn't going to make it to the screen - even with two movies, there's still like 800 pages' worth of stuff that isn't going to make it since that book is so long. It's just a matter of what they want to include.

{Spoilers below}

Yeah, they really don't need the whole smoke hallucinations thing. But I could also do without the magical preteen sex to help them make it out of the sewers. And we don't need to actually see the "deadlights"; if they'd just left it at the effects of the lights in the miniseries, that would have been better (it worked so much better on the page than the screen). Also, they either need to do a much better giant ass spider or not really show it. Oh man, I don't know if they would even try, but that one kid that was part of Henry's gang, the one with the refrigerator, his whole story creeped me out so much and I both want them to include it and not.

Patrick Hockstetter. The boy who taught me the meaning of the word solipsism, who smothered his own brother because he didn't think the baby belonged in "his" world. Oh God, he was fucked up.

SK used that name for an earlier character in one of his books, a doctor in Firestarter--I always wondered if that was a real person from King's past who had pissed him off somehow. Neither Patrick comes off very well!
