I don't get complaining about jump scares in a trailer.
it's a trailer.
The general conceit of rhythmic editing paired with rhythmic scoring - when you're dealing with a horror movie it just makes sense that if you're going to make your commercial for the movie resemble a musical short film (which is basically the norm in movie marketing now) using a jump scare/loud noise as that punctuation is the right call.
Horror films are going to have jump scares. IT is going to have jump scares. Their presence isn't an automatic demerit. It's part of the genre.
alright im fully on board for this one. that looked great.
are we also gunna retread the conversation about the rape in the book? It happened, King regrets it and wishes he could've thought of something better, i doubt its in the new film as it wasn't even in the tv movie. time to move past it, its been discussed to death at this point.
My first exposure to IT was on a VHS tape we picked up at a gas station on a road trip. Had a VHS/TV in the van to keep us kids busy. Must have watched it 3 or 4 times before we realized their was an entire 2nd half with them as adults.
Hoping this is successful enough that we'll get the 2nd half, even though the 1st (at least in the mini series) was far better.
I read the book when I was fairly young and it definitely jarred me enough to be the first thing I remember whenever I think of the property. Jokes aside, I'm glad they went in another direction with it...no way could they pull that off in this medium.
