Nothing really new here is added to the horror genre, crew finds tiny life form brings it onto their spacestation and thus ensues an alien trying to kill everyone and take over the world... pretty standard and unoriginal fare. The cast do a good enough job with what they have been given but ultimately it fails... not one to rewatch again...
Was there a point to this film? Lasted 40 minutes and whereas the last one had a decent story to it, this feels like its just random scene after random scene.... boring!
Now this is how you do a horror film. Comparisons are inevitable with the 1990 TV series with Tim Curry as the evil Pennywise, but what Bill Skarsgard does is make him more maniacal and threatening, I just wanted more scenes with him but when he is on screen he is terrifying! The young actors in their roles all exceed expectations but there isn't room for character development for all of them, there are a few that get sidelined which is a shame. Another slight criticism I have is that in the series Pennywise played with the children a lot more and there wasn't much of that going on, although its hard to cram all that in into a 2 hour film. I wouldn't say that its a scary film, yes there are a few jump scares but its more unsettling and creepy plus it doesn't help I viewed most of the Pennywise clips on YouTube, so stay away from that and be surprised. Overall its a well made horror film and the sequel should definitely up the scare factor.
Well this was an odd film to say the least. The trailer did come across as something that was a brand new take on the monster movie, which for the most part works. There's not much backstory as to the why its all happening but that doesn't really matter, just take it for what it is. Its not a film to be taken seriously although it does have some dark and uncomfortable moments. Anne Hathaway is likeable as always and its good to see her try something completely different, worth repeated watchings? Not really, its a good one time viewing film but not something you will remember in a few years time.
Avoid like the plague... Worst film of the year by far. Not much more to say..
