IT 2 Director Teases That It’s Scarier Than The First Film

Last year’s IT managed to do the impossible — adapt part of a beloved Stephen King novel all while pleasing those who were unnecessarily attached to the TV movie from 1990. Between the amazing cast of kids, solid script, and unforgettable portrayal of Pennywise the Dancing Clown, there were enough solid components to have the film rake in $700 million worldwide.

So yeah, given its $35 million budget, it was undoubtedly a huge hit for fans and the studio alike. But will the upcoming sequel be able to top it? After all, that aforementioned 1990 movie was pretty much only remembered for its kid scenes, and the whole ordeal is decidedly less dramatic than when the cast is kids. But what does the director think?

Fandango writer Erik Davis had a quick chat with director Andy Muschietti, and the director reportedly said:

“It’s going to be scarier and more intense, so bring your adult diapers.”

Okay. We can get on board with that. While the first film was very strong overall, I do think it ended up being “Jump Scare: The Movie,” with Pennywise terrorizing these kids, always stopping short of killing them, one by one. With them all being adults now, I hope that these scares are more than what we saw in the first one, and are more of chilling nature.
