Pennywise: I'm every nightmare you've ever had. I'm your worst dream come true. I'm everything you ever were afraid of.

Trivia: Tim Curry admitted that while he enjoyed working on the film, he was ultimately disappointed by the finished product, mainly due to the ending. He felt the final creature (a massive spider) was poorly executed and a massive let-down, and lacked any sense of fear or suspense.

Question: In the scene at the rock pile when the book comes to life and Pennywise says, "I'll kill you all. I'll drive you crazy and I'll kill you all", these words don't at all match whatever words his mouth is actually forming. It's so obvious. This is an audio dub to replace whatever he's supposed to be saying in the book. Does anybody have any idea what happened here?

Answer: In the only version I know his lips movement matches what is being said. Not sure what you mean, check out the scene at youtube.

Answer: I think you're mistaking Tim Curry's distinctive way of speaking as Pennywise with him being dubbed. He curls the corners of his mouth as he talks which makes his mouth look like he's saying something else. The only other film I can remember him doing something similar in is The Shadow, he kind of talks with the same mannerisms.
