It Chapter Two

Continuity mistake: When they finally arrive at the bottom of the sewer, Eddie's bandage is on a different cheek. (01:59:00)

Factual error: There's a flashback to 1989 in an arcade and we see Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II there. The original wasn't released until 1992, and the sequel in 1993.

Suggested correction: Subtract 27 from 2019 and you get 1992. They were 12-13 in 92 so it is plausible that those games could have been in the arcade while they were still kids.

It's set in 1989, not 1992.

The "present day" scenes in this film actually take place in 2016, 27 years after the first film is set which would be 1989. The mistake is valid.


Some of the flashbacks seem to be set after the first movie.

That flashback definitely was not supposed to be after the first movie, it featured Henry Bowers.


And Pennywise would have been asleep in 1992~1993 so that whole scene after the arcade makes no sense.

Continuity mistake: After they find the club house Beverly tells Ben how handy he is. A bang of her hair is falling on her forehead. In the immediate next wide angle the forehead is clean.

Question: When Eddie takes a face full of projectile sludge from the leper, is there any significance to the song "Angel of the Morning" playing, or was it just a random attempt at a joke?

Answer: At the football game was on because the little girl went down to meet the clown named pennywise to be he's best friend and the end he didn't say three came up so fast and ate her up.

This isn't an answer to the question. And the poor grammar makes it hard to know what point you're trying to make.


Answer: I think it's more of an attempt at a silly joke, juxtaposing the insane imagery with a tender song. But I've also seen the suggestion that it was an Easter Egg/reference to the book "The Langoliers," in which the song is mentioned. (And given the "It" films have some general Stephen King Easter Eggs referencing things from his other books, that makes sense).


Question: Why does Stanley kill himself? I understand in the film it is because he considered himself too weak and wanted to give his friends the best chance. However, why didn't he just stay where he was was and not return? Pennywise can't reach that far so could not influence him. Stanley could have come up with any plan, even faking his death.

Answer: It's a bit involved, but the fact is that he was never that stable with the idea to begin with. He had forgotten all the horrors of his childhood (either due to the influence of Maturin the turtle [from the book] or Pennywise it makes little difference) and when it all started to come back to him, he panicked. And frankly, he had no way of knowing whether Pennywise could get him where he was or not. He didn't know enough to know one way or the other. But he knew that where Pennywise was concerned it would never be over simply. Pennywise would have tormented and tortured them like he did when they were kids, and when faced with that prospect he decided that ending it now, especially in his panicked state, was preferable to the idea of torture.

Question: Why does Pennywise feed on the adult at the start? I thought he only fed on children as seen in the previous movie and this movie. Or is it fear that he feeds on? I haven't read the book so maybe it's better explained in there.

Answer: Pennywise eats Adrian Mellon because he has just awoken from his sleep and is hungry. Pennywise will feed on anyone but prefers his victims to be afraid because the meal is more satisfying. It is described in the book as like "salting the meat." Likewise, Pennywise prefers children because their fear is more intense.
