One of the most anticipated films of this year, mmmm, which I say this year, a long-awaited movie, is the new film version of Stephen King’s great horror novel, It, a fascinating story about fears, friendship and evolution; After a successful miniseries in the nineties, now, many years later Warner Bros. Pictures revives this classic of literature, which also became a cult movie, today we have the opportunity to relive this creepy story with better effects and a Pennywise more frightening, or that’s what they promise us, a horror story that will blow your mind.
Now, I must say, that after all the great commotion and uproar over this tape, after everything I had read, after the first people left the movie theaters and said “brilliant, magnificent, the best horror story “, The truth is that I raised my expectations a lot, also, not for nothing the box office of this film is making history, something behind the movie That should make it the best horror film in history, the bad news is that Not so, although it is entertaining, the setting is good, I think this adaptation is missing essential things in history, yes, the special effects are notoriously better in this new version, but in the miniseries of the nineties, I think I, there are more important and fundamental elements of history.
I think this film is good, it’s entertaining and it’s for a young audience, but of that to say that it’s the best horror movie in the world, there’s a great world, and the terror that the miniseries aroused in the nineties, no longer can replicate this remake and I think my biggest complaint is that much of the art, much of the ghosts and scares that are used to scare the children of the club losers, are closely related to other horror stories, these “demons” They reminded me a lot of the art we saw in the Conjura, I think James Wan definitely marked the cinema and now we see that vision of ghosts and demons, everywhere, even in the movie Eso.
This film I think is far from the terror and suspense of the original story, and rather focuses on the genre of scares and another thing that seemed quite poor, is that the film is not focused on telling the story of friendship that generates the club of the losers and how they are dedicated to investigate the mystery of Derry, which is read in the book; again, key pieces such as the help of the Maturin turtle, Chud’s ritual, are left out of this impressive story; in other words, the key foundations of this film are left aside and the focus is more on the scares that the children receive.
And although there are only scares in this story, the tape is long; Now, if there are some elements of the book in this adaptation, but I think it was very short and it is not the big story of fear, that I had sold chapter one of Eso.
Maybe my big problem with the movie Eso, is that I expected the best horror film, when it is not like that and they have inflated it too much, if you are thinking it is a scare movie, it might seem like another movie of this genre .
The best? The best Pennywise in the world? This is already a debate that generated much controversy, but I tell you, I thought it was long, tired and had high, very high expectations that hit reality.
Synopsis of the movie Eso
What is it about? It is the story of the curse of the people of Derry, a violent and strange place, in which people have a hard time, especially children, who have mysterious and macabre disappearances.
But it all starts when Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott), a little boy who goes out to play in the rain, is eaten by the clown Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård), this makes his brother Bill (Jaeden Lieberher) begin to look for a reason to the death of his brother, but he will not be alone and during the summer, with the help of 6 other children, he will look for the answer to the tragic events of Derry, and while they investigate, he and his friends, called the losers’ club, Pennywise begins to scare them, to be able to eat them and take them to the place where they all float.
The cast of the movie That
From the movie That, some names jump, among them the one of Bill Skarsgård, who is considered a teacher for his new version of Pennywise, I think it was not bad, and this actor could really capture the evil essence of the clown That, speaking of other interesting performances are those of Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, and Sophia Lillis, these children who carried the plot on their shoulders.
My opinion of the movie Eso
I was waiting to see the best and brightest horror story, but as I was watching this story, the sad reality brought me back to the world and the movie Eso, is a story about scares, that was what disappointed me the most, to find a movie that did not break schemes, a tape that follows the same steps as other scary stories like the Sorcery, Insidious, in short, It, I end up being one more movie of the bunch, which does not stand out for nothing.
