How Scary & Violent Is IT Chapter Two Compared To The First?
IT Chapter Two escalates the horror with intense jump scares and a relentless sense of dread. Pennywise preys on the characters’ deepest fears, making the horror feel disturbingly real.
The film’s violence is graphic and brutal, featuring intense scenes of aggression. Its R-rating is well-deserved, given the graphic depictions of Pennywise’s attacks. For those sensitive to graphic content, some scenes in IT Chapter Two might be particularly jarring.
