So, if he needs the kids to be scared to eat them why didn't he scare Georgie? Georgie is afraid to talk to him but he actually comforts him.
>>
Is getting your arm torn off not scary?
>>
>>87679791
george was bait
>>
>>87679791
He's scared as fuck though after pennywise bit his whole arm off.
>>
>>87679791

what a qt
>>
>>87679791
He doesn't need them to be scared, they just taste better when they are.
>>
>>87679791
Pennywise wanted a power that Georgie had, and that Bev also has later in the movie.
They are not frightened by Pennywise. It is some kind of magic that he needs to consume.
When he consumes it, he is able to create minions.
After eating Georgie he was able to create either the zombie minion or the witch minion that you see in the movie.

This magic that few children possesses puzzles Pennywise, thats why he kidnaps Bev in order to study it and understand it.
>>
>>87679791
He made Georgie uneasy by growling at him, I can guess that Georgie was pretty nervous reaching for his boat
>>
>>87679895
Alright mate I admire your creative writing but don't just pull plot out your ass

I dont remeber any of this shit from the boom

Oh, I never read tie-in novels maybe there is extra information in that, we just watched the movie and figured that was what was going on.

So, why bother doing any of this spooky shit if biting arms off is enough?
>>
How does it actually hurt after you lose a limb?
>>
>>87679867
So, why does he lose his power when they're not afraid?
>>
>>87680029
That was what he was trying to figure out with Beverly, he was going to do research with her but Ben woke her up with a Prince's kiss and they beat him up.
Hopefully in the sequel we'll find out why he loses powers when kids are not afraid.
>>
>>87680029
Cause it'd make for a shit film if he just instantly blended the whole club with the powers he is obviously capable of

He knows it's Maturin helping the kids you dumbfucks. He was never confused about why they don't fear him. He was aware of maturin's presence, but bewildered by how humans can blindly face their fears against a primordial being that is made up of Orange ghost cum.
Maturin is the Turtle of great girth. The creator of our universe and defender against the macroverse where IT is from.
>>

Jesus Christ, Stephen.
>>
>>87680230
What is mauturing and turtle of girth?
Isn't Pennywise from hell?
>>
Georgie was afraid that Bill would get mad at him if he lost the boat he just made for him.
>>
>>87679791
The real answer is that IT took over 5 years to write and Pennywise evolved into a completely different character than the one King originally envisioned in the prologue.
>>
>>87679806
Then why didn't he rip off the limbs of the other kids to scare them instead of dancing like a faggot?

Stop making excuses for this shitty writing and story.
>>
>>87680011
I, too, would appreciate an answer to this question.
>>
>>87680448
What did you eat yesterday?
>>
>>87680356

He actually gets he life out of them by succin so I'm thinking ripping their limbs off isn't good for him, he just had a sudden urge to bite georgies arm
>>
>>87680241
kek
>>
>>87680011
Because it can also have the opposite effect of just pissing someone off instead of creating fear like at the end of the movie
>>
Anyone got a loop of Pennywise dance?
>>
>>87680671
you already asked for it faggot
>>
Kids get scared easily because they believe in the supernatural and magic. Reel 'em in and go BOO.
Teens are on their way to adulthood. You need to creep them out first so they will believe. It's explained in the book.
>>
>>87680722
That makes sense. I always assumed he just tried to impose a sense of dread into them because it'd make them taste better than a quick spook.
Kind of slow cooking something in a crockpot vs on a stove
>>
>>87680959
Why assume anything, you can just read the book, or even the plot on wikipedia.
>>
>>87680011
Because King is a shit writer who doesn't think his stories through before writing them.
>>
>>87680230
Do you reckon we'll actually get to see the turtle (of enormous girth) in the second part or is that too weird for mainstream audiences?

What fears do adults have?

She's a narcissist who fancies herself superior to everyone but Gan. It thinks she can toy w/ her prey ("salting the meat"), then eat them whenever. Georgie was her first victim after waking up in the 50s (book)/80s (movie), so she wanted food asap (though in the book, It doesn't eat Georgie; Georgie bleeds out in the street). Eventually, she decides she just wants to kill the Losers.
>>
>>87681652
None that are easy to exploit (generally). It generally ignores adults b/c she has a harder time scaring them (she does what she can, though).
>>
>>87681695
Does she even know about Gan until the adult portion of the book, where she begins to suspect that there's something even more powerful than the turtle (which It assumes to be dead).
>>
>>87681652
>What fears do adults have?
Lack of sex
>>
>>87681652

High taxes
>>
>>87680029

Part of his power comes from feeding off of fear. People who don't fear him or don't believe (the adults of Derry) are generally left alone because of this

Probably not because it's a cosmic being
>>
>>87681719
Don't remember (been almost five years since I read It). I also want to say that Maturin was def dead, but again, I don't remember if that was just what It believed (of course, belief is a very powerful thing).
>>
>>87681652

Bevs adult life is pretty terrifying
>>
>>87681835
I think Bill sees the dead turtle himself.
I'm not sure how this factors into The Dark Tower, though, often King's lore is a bit too convoluted for me to follow
>>
>>87681835

Bill sees the corpse of Maturin when he's being pushed through outer space, right?
>>
>>87681810
IIRC, the director doesn't like the cosmic mythos, but Mike will be a junkie librarian, and drugs will be used to help the adults figure out how to defeat It.
>>
>>87681652
I guess some fear werewolves and ghosts. Maybe Pennywises minions will have a larger role in the sequel and they really beat him as kids so its the minions now since clowns are not scary to adults.
>>
>>87680011

Its just a movie don't be so autistic

What I'd like to know is how a beam's death wouldn't cause issues for the Tower.

>>
>>87680017
Only after your adrenaline levels go down.
>>
Correct me if I am wrong (been ages since I read the book) but Maturin was for the most part irrelevant to the Losers vs IT conflict, it was actually Gan who directly helps the kids.
>>
>>87680017
It depends on how fast you lose it.
If it gets ran over or crushed or sliced off slowly, you're dealing with each nerve ending shooting pain through you at a time, which really sucks.
But if it happens quick enough, all the nerve receptors go off at once, temporarily short circuiting the pain center in your brain and sending you into a nearly blissful state of shock where you can't feel anything for a while.
>>
Georgie wasn't really afraid of Pennywise. He was wary of speking to him because of the typical "my dad told me to not talk with strangers", but it was obvious to Pennywise that the kid was too oblivious to his antics. Pennywise can feed on anybody, it's just that the fear is like delicious gravy.
>>
>>87681652
HAVING CHILDREN
That's why none of the Losers Club have kids.
>>
The sensible answer is his killing/eating abilities depend on how much he's eaten and how strong he is at that particular moment. When he ate Georgie he must have been adequately strong enough to kill and eat without necessitating fear from the victim.

By the end of the movie he was starving and weak, and the only way to kill and eat under those circumstances was to put fear in the victim.
>>
Can someone give me the Stephen King universe rundown? All of his stories take place in a cosmology held up by twelve or so cosmic beings, and these settings all exist in the same cosmos, connected through the Dark Tower as some form of nexus?
>>
>>87682429
Its different for everyone. My best friend accidentally shot me a few years back, and it fucking sucked.
He was showing off his new gun to me, and Mr. Gun Safety forgot that it was loaded apparently, and somehow it went off and got me in the arm.
I heard the bang, and suddenly felt like someone simultaneously punched and stabbed me with a 1000 degree ice pick. I immediately fell to the floor screaming like a bitch, pissed myself, and I guess I blacked out for a couple minutes.
From that day on, it kinda ruined action movies for me. I can no longer see people just 'walking off' a fucking gunshot without calling bullshit.
>>
>>87681652
>What fears do adults have?

According to Pennywise, adults have complex fears like mortgage repayments, bills, stress and failure. They're not scared of something as simple as a werewolf or a clown. IT finds it a million times easier to prey on children because they have simple fears.
>>
>>87683264
Pretty much, yes.
A few stories are more overtly connected to The Dark Tower like It, Insomnia, Salem's Lot (retroactively), but the way The Dark Tower is written means all of King's works conceivably take place within the same universe.
>>
>>87680011
He calmed him down, had Georgie grab for the boat, bit his arm off scaring him, then finished him off.
>>
>>87679806
>>87679825

a child losing a limb like that would have a heart attack pretty much instantly due to the drop in blood pressure.
>>
>>87679895
this would be an interesting plot line desu

this whole "dude im evil but cant lure in children" thing is really dumb
>>
>>87679895
>he is able to create minions
pretty sure those aren't minions, that's just IT taking another form

So why not rewrite the prologue?

Stop calling it a she. It's a primordial being. It's sexless.

>>87683709
In the book Audra looks into the deadlights and goes into shock after learning IT is female and pregnant. Bill and Richie even massacre her young on the way to killing IT.
>>
>>87683756
Aaaannnd now I'm erect
>>
What was with the floating pile of trash at the end? When It puts Bev in a trance, were those the deadlights I've been reading about? Is any of this elaborated on in the novel?
>>
>>87679867
Not in the movie. They added that rule that you must be afraid or he just suspends you with the tri-light
>>
>>87679806
Fpbp
Is Georgie the first kill of the season? Maybe he can't do his crazy mind altering illusions until he gets some nourishment so settles for just talking and trying to lure Georgie down but gets fed up with his laughter and just bites his arm off to get the heart pumping
>>
>>87683949
He does comatose people with the dead lights and in the book they're trapped in web, not just floating mid air.

Bev doesn't get hit with them and Ben doesn't Disney her out of it, at least not in the book. Everyone that part of the movie is cheesy dumb.
>>
>>87684026
He created the illusion of circus music and scents like hotdogs and popcorn to keep Georgie around. It isn't huge but he's only tricking a 6 year old.
>>
>>87679791>he needs the kids to be scared to eat them

Is this a metaphor for Skippy Molesta?
>>
>>87681652
>becoming schizophrenic
>getting Alzheimer's
All he'd have to do is whisper some random things at night and I'm spicy taco with fear
>>
>>87680352

So like any other movie based on Stephen King's books, they are only good when they don't follow whats written in them

Stephen is the most overrated author of all time, without a doubt
>>
>>87681652
>>87683282
This. Adults don't have simple fears, but they also don't have simple beliefs. The same thing that made them vulnerable as children allowed them to defeat It. To defeat It as adults they need to revert to a childlike mentality which makes them vulnerable again.

Stop spoiling IT Chapter 2 for those of us not from the future.
>>
>>87684678
What is it chapter 2? The Pennywise sequel?
>>
>>87684319
The movie suffered because it didn't draw from the source material enough. Pennywise evolved into what it did because Stranger Things was a hit and this movie is a spinoff.

IT and the town of Derry are far more uncomfortable and terrifying than what was shown in the movie.
>>
>>87680356
Because that makes for a worse story and the logic behind the magic alien clown only matters I'd you have autism.
>>
>>87683272
Thats because you're a pussy.
>>
>>87684825
I thought the people watching the fat kid get sliced with a knife yelling for help and just ignoring him was really fucked and unsettling. Also the creepy librarian staring at Ben. Huh as I type this I guess him being the new kid and all the creepy Derry people focused on him is neat. Lastly Ben is a tank and took so much damage
