Highly Disturbing ‘IT’ Deleted Scene Had Pennywise Eating a Baby?!

Back in September, Bill Skarsgård appeared on Variety’s “Playback” podcast and teased a deleted scene from IT that he described as being “really, really disturbing.”

There was a scene we shot that was a flashback from the 1600s, before Pennywise [was Pennywise],” the actor told the podcast. “The scene turned out really, really disturbing. And I’m not the clown. I look more like myself. It’s very disturbing, and sort of a backstory for what IT is, or where Pennywise came from.”

What exactly happens in that scene? Well, actor Timothy Simons revealed on Throwing Shade that he auditioned for the role of Pennywise, leading host Bryan Safi to read from the script on a recent episode of the podcast; particularly, the Pennywise flashback scene. We did some digging and found that scrapped scene in its entirety on Reddit.

Skarsgård wasn’t kidding. It is indeed quite disturbing…

“1637: INT. WELLHOUSE – NIGHT ABIGAIL, 19. Rushes in and SLAMS the door. As if trying to keep Satan himself out. She clutches her BABY to her breast. Kneels by DYING EMBERS in the hearth. She blows on ‘em but a flame never catches. Her Baby starts to fuss… ABIGAIL: Hush now, shhhh… it’ll be — She stops.

Realizes that the SMALL CANDLE CHANDELIER slowly spins above her. As if some unnatural force has caused its light to rotate around the room, like tiny primitive searchlights. She hears something slithering in the gray shadows by the Well. Occasionally we catch glimpses of a BLACK SILHOUETTE. Shifting its shape. As if trying to decide on a form.

ABIGAIL (CONT’D): Please, Devil… leave us be… Shape shifts again. A beam of light passes, revealing PENNYWISE, naked, lithe, flesh pale and translucent, a half- formed imitation of a human, opens his maw full of large razor sharp teeth, dripping with saliva. As the Tin Can spins clockwise, Pennywise moves counter around the room. Each time the light hits his face — It’s different. A Man. A Woman. A Beast. A Monster.

PENNYWISE: You mistake me woman. No mere devil, I am the Eater of Worlds. His voice is guttural, unnatural. ABIGAIL: But my child, not my child… He is innocent…

PENNYWISE: So you say. The Baby SCREAMS. Pennywise smiles. PENNYWISE (CONT’D): Beautiful fear… ABIGAIL: I pray Thee, take me. Abigail shuffles back. PENNYWISE: I will. And then, him. And thy husband and the rest of thy children, and all the savages who brought you here. And when you all rot in the earth, I will pick thy bones dry until no meat is left to pick. And then I will seek out thy bones and consume thy souls until nothing is left but the weeds! (beat) Or you will occupy yourself otherwise and not interfere. I will take her and you will live, and those of thy other children — in whom I take no interest. And you will thank ME fever and frost did not damn you to the soil. Abigail looks down at her baby again.

She’s shaking, doesn’t want to let go. Behind her, the Door OPENS. A Little Boy, 6, asks — BOY: Mama? ABIGAIL: NO! OUT! NOW! Frightened by his mother, the Boy runs. Abigail turns back to Pennywise. Wherever he may be now in the room. The light somehow seems to spin faster now. She kisses her baby and sets it down. It BAWLS. ABIGAIL: I’m sorry, I’m so sorry…

She turns away from the baby. Faces those dying embers. We keep on her face as they seem to begin GLOWING BRIGHTER AS — OVER HER SHOULDER — OUT OF FOCUS — Pennywise crawls over to the Baby and starts to feast. SHARP CRY FROM THE BABY CUT OFF as we hear a CRUNCH. Abigail continues to look into the BRIGHT ORANGE GLOW of not the flickering fire… …but the DEADLIGHTS. Her expression changing. Fear. Denial. Grief. Acceptance. And then nothing. Just a glazed look. AS IF NOTHING HORRIFIC IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING BEHIND HER.”

At this time, we have no way of knowing how much of *that* was actually shot, but Skarsgård’s recent comments suggest that at least some part of it was filmed.

Thanks to Arrow in the Head for the scoop.

    I hope this was filmed.

  • Brian McNatt

    They better put as much of this in the home video release as physically possible.

    • They might be saving it for Chapter Two, which will explore Pennywise’s backstory.

      • Jennifer

        The Reddit link has people in the comments claiming it will definitely be in the sequel, but I see little to no proof. I would like to know for sure though before watching this new adaptation.

  • Sounds like a typical Thursday.

  • Sky Commander

    Okay that should have been in the movie it sounds scary and disturbing as hell.

  • jurgmandr

    Damn, that would have made the 1st part even creepier. I would have loved to have seen that.

  • DukeStKing

    Now we’re talking! Now that, sounds disturbing.

  • Jennifer

    What in Christ’s name is wrong with people. Sick, disgusting filth. And this is the fourth time I’ve heard of a movie showing such a despicable thing. Modern culture is becoming more and more putrid.

    • What are doing on a horror website?

      • Jennifer

        I watch and read horror all the time that has nothing to do with cannibalizing babies. Even the movie The Woman and its prequel, about a cannibal tribe, never showed babies being butchered. Someone linked this to me, and losers on the Reddit link here are saying this could have made the movie “truly scary”. That’s how low people are getting, they want nastier and nastier stuff, so apparently the blood and torture of adults isn’t enough anymore.

        • Chip Draper

          Jennifer Fuck Dude, take it down a notch you are going to hurt yourself with all that pearl clutching…

          • Jennifer

            Zid, I don’t usually love seeing people PRETEND to eat babies and rape children either. Is that normal, for people who hate the idea of it in real life to enjoy seeing it depicted? The shit-film Days of Sodom was an incredibly rare piece of garbage. Not wearing pearls, Chippey, but good to know seeing people upset over scenes of killing babies bothers you more than the actual scenes.

            Darkknight, I’m generally not very PC; in fact I tend to make fun of it, esp when those who make films with women being brutalized and people being pumped full of lead whine about it. Which is how I even know of films like The Woman and manage to enjoy shows like The Walking Dead in the first place, bc I know the need for gritty in stories and love thrillers. But most people have their limits and this often includes excess violence towards animals/children even among many horror fans. Unspeakable violence against babies is especially low.

          • Baron Von Marlon

            You have any kids?

          • Jennifer

            No, but I have a niece and a nephew.

          • Timothy KingCraze Richardson J

            And she doesn’t even have kids!! Wow…

          • Jennifer

            You’re right, I should be FINE with seeing them butchered in movies, screw my own little relatives! Unless they came from my own womb, I don’t give a shit and should have no natural care for babies at all.

          • Mike tantatelli

            Are you surprised? I’m surprised men aren’t beating down the door to take this woman out and hopefully impregnate her. She seems like the most fun, laid back chick ever!

          • Jennifer

            No dude I’ve dated has ever had an issue with me not wanting to see babies killed in films.

          • I have no issue with you having an issue, that’s fine. But if you don’t want to see it, then don’t watch it. You’ve been going on and on and on not only about how terrible the entire concept of this scene is, but how terrible anyone is who would even want to see such a thing in a film. Generally, most people, especially in fan communities for something like horror films, are perfectly content to simply opt out of things they don’t want to see, without feeling the need to make the further jump to telling everyone what terrible people they are for not sharing their opinion.

            Besides, there is no real indication from this excerpt of how the scene would have actually been filmed. You can’t tell from how it’s presented in a script how “shocking” the scene would have been.

          • Jennifer

            The only reason I’ve been “going on” about anything is bc people have either insulted me or asked me questions and I answered them. I haven’t responded to anyone’s post calling them names, but that has been done to me, repeatedly. On and on.

            “there is no real indication from this excerpt of how the scene would have actually been filmed”

            Umm, they said, “We keep on her face as they seem to begin GLOWING BRIGHTER AS — OVER HER SHOULDER — OUT OF FOCUS — Pennywise crawls over to the Baby and starts to feast. SHARP CRY FROM THE BABY CUT OFF as we hear a CRUNCH.” It’s pretty descriptive. And yet, again, people are just APPALLED that I am appalled by that.

          • Garbageface

            Maybe you didn’t resort to direct name calling but you certainly implied that people that are okay with children being murdered in movies are disgusting, sick and filthy.

          • Jennifer

            Actually I said I expect to see children die in some stories.

          • Garbageface

            Which makes your
            high and mighty garbage even more confusing

          • Jennifer

            I think I’ve explained the difference between expecting kids to die and seeing over the top, horrifyingly gruesome brutality against them pretty extensively now.

          • Garbageface

            Not very well

          • Jennifer

            A few others seem to have no problem. Of course, seems most expect to see children die in films, but not get eaten; that’s a newer occurrence with infants in horror tales.

          • That could be filled with tons of gore visible in the background, or it could be filmed completely as a tight close-up with only the sound effects. Plus that’s only how it was written–there are plenty of times when the scene is not filmed as written because the director has a different vision, or there is a concern that the scene as written goes too far, or there are suggestions for alternate visions. That is what I meant when I said there is no indication as to how the scene would have been filmed. This isn’t an excerpt from a shooting script (a script notated by the director with clear intentions for setups, camera angles, etc.). This is the script as written by a screenwriter (a script, mind you, that we know has gone through multiple iterations, some of which were outright rejected by the studio. This may have been one of those.).

            And I didn’t insult you or call you any names at all, yet you continue to “go on.” Yes, it’s a scene where a baby is eaten. In a horror movie. If we were trying to do baby-eating as comedy, I’d probably be more concerned. We’re all aware (I think) that Pennywise/IT is not a pleasant person/creature/being/whatever. I think it would be more shocking if he drew a line at eating babies. “Nope, sorry, gotta be at least four years old or older. Otherwise i get awful indigestion.” Why is the eating of a baby somehow more horrifying than the eating of a child, a teenager, or an adult? It’s a monster mutilating and killing a human being. Why is age a big issue?

        • Unnerving/scary/disturbing or challenging, and being politically correct are often mutually exclusive goals.

        • zid

          Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom came out in 1975 and that’s a hundred times more graphic than what this describes. You need to learn to tell the difference between fantasy and reality,

        • Baron Von Marlon

          Maybe some people don’t want nastier and nastier stuff but wanted stuff like that in the first place. It’s horror, I don’t see why babies and kids should be off-limits.

          • Jennifer

            I think the pattern shows movies aiming for more and more shock value a lot of the time. If most people wanted infant murder in the first place, this kind of debauchery would probably be more common in films, but it’s rare instead. Moreover, children and babies are not always off-limits in films, but most didn’t see the need to write and depict particularly horrible deaths for them.

          • Mike tantatelli

            “Shocking” is an opinion.

          • Jennifer

            Luckily, when it comes to animal and child cruelty, it’s a pretty much nationally shared one.

          • Mike tantatelli

            I agree with both if it’s real life. But if it’s only a fictional story, I’m ok with it being shown.

        • Garbageface

          Cool,so keep depictions of torture and gore only to the age ranges that Jennifer is comfy with!

          • Jennifer

            And let’s keep the opinions here only the kind that fans of excess violence are ok with.

          • Garbageface

            You’re free to your opinions. Just like I am. You come across to me like a judgmental asshole that engages in pretty much the same thing you’re judging other people for.

          • Jennifer

            Better to be a judgmental jerk than someone with no standards, and clearly I don’t “engage” in watching infant slaughter.

        • To be clear–it’s not cannibalism. Cannibalism is something eating a member of it’s own species. Pennywise isn’t human. This isn’t cannibalism anymore than a leopard or a wolf eating a child is cannibalism.

          • Jennifer

            Pennywise took the form of a person, including in this scene, and lately some sick horror films have not only shown babies dying, but being “eaten”. That’s a particularly heinous thing to show.

    • Munchie Strikes Back

      I just ate a baby. Tasted like pepperoni pizza!

      • zid

        Have you tried one with pineapple? It adds a tart sweetness I find quite pleasing.

        • Munchie Strikes Back

          I’ll give that a shot for breakfast. That’s when I’m eating another baby!

          • zid

            Baby is kind of a big meal. Marshmallows & puppies with milk is more my breakfast go-to.

      • Jennifer

        Oh wow, work at Planned Parenthood?

        • Nick Botic

          You mean the business that provides unparalleled aid in the form of birth control, STD prevention and treatment, and is an incredible advocate for women’s rights?

          • Jennifer

            Hey, they need some “fetal tissue” disposal.

          • Nick Botic

            Lol so you’re obviously one of those ridiculous delusional people that thinks PP are just abortion factories, and correct me if I’m wrong, you’re probably a Trump supporter, which, if that’s the case, then it A. explains (almost) everything, and B. means there’s no point in debating with you haha. I say “almost” because it doesn’t make sense why you’d be so sensitive. Hmm. The marvels of this world are still astonishing.

          • Garbageface

            Oh my god fuck you fuck you fuck you

      • Baron Von Marlon

        Get in my belly!!!

      • Ocelot006 .

        Dude bro. Your baby should be tasting like some quality steak tartare. You eating black babies bro?

    • Geoff Peterson

      So “A Serbian Film” is kind of off the menu then?

      No pun intended.

      Okay; maybe a little bit intended.

      • Jennifer

        HAH, don’t even go there. In fact, of all the times I’ve seen online lists of “Most Disgusting/Horrible/Unbearable Movies”, A Serbian Film has always, always been listed as the worst.

        • Geoff Peterson

          Yeah but it’s a strangely really, really well-made film with more going on than you would think.

          I have two kids too so clearly we have different levels of what we will tolerate. You can’t go judging everybody for seeing things in art that you might not.

          A Serbian film was incredibly disturbing but I also found it incredibly well done. I won’t watch it again and don’t have a desire to but I don’t regret watching it.

          I think the issue a lot of people here are having with your opinion is that it’s incredibly judgemental and a lot of horror fans usually are not.

          Don’t take this the wrong way either I’m totally not trying to give you crap just my perspective. Subjectivity and all that jazz.

          • Jennifer

            I called the scene trash after reading the horrifying description and am amazed anyone could film it. It’s amusing to me in a weird way, that people in our world now are more offended by seeing someone call such a scene horrid than the scene itself. But that seems to be the way of things now and not just in movies: support amoral behavior and careless apathy, but how DARE anybody judge it? Such a sin!

            Showing infant butchery or rape is not art. I don’t judge you for watching Serbian, but people rooting for a scene with a baby killed is a little different from watching an entire movie inspite of some of its horror. I am..not used to seeing people call eagerly for such a scene, esp in a movie already about child murder. Thank you for being polite, I have no offense at all with your comments.

          • Geoff Peterson

            I don’t think people are actually rooting for a baby to be butchered per se; they just want to be entertained or challenged by art.

            Some people enjoy this. Some people don’t.

            I do not think people are upset by the fact that the subject offends you. You are perfectly entitled for it to offend you. It is more about the fact that you seem to feel that your opinion on this matter is superior to theirs and are passing judgement based on that logic.

            I thank you for being polite as well. Clearly we dont entirely agree yet we seem to be avoiding slinging shit; a rare treat online.

            I don’t agree with how some people are jumping down on you with personal attacks. I feel like both sides of an argument need to demonstrate the understanding that someone can have a different viewpoint, and that doesn’t make them a bad person. Even when it relates to babies killed in a film.

          • Jennifer

            I think it’s a very normal, healthy, visceral reaction to say why in God’s Name would anyone make a scene about butchering a baby; I said so without personally addressing other posters. Being entertained and challenged by art generally involves people using their heads and yes, getting scared, which the film does already while already showing the deaths and suffering of crying children and parents. It is possible many wanted to see this scene to see the portrayal of Pennywise as a human and his historical past; that, I understand. I’d love to see it too, sans horrific infant death affects. Thank you for your insights,

          • Garbageface

            Jennifer is normal and healthy for liking the kind of human brutality she likes to watch!

          • Jennifer

            I don’t like to see human brutality at all.

          • Garbageface

            Do you only watch the kind of horror movies where no one is hurt?

          • Jennifer

            LOL No, but I watch movies where not many people die. And the ones that do don’t usually die in horrifically imaginative ways.

          • Baron Von Marlon

            You should try the Final Destination series =)

          • Jennifer

            Seen them. After the first, they got almost..mocking in death, which was nasty. The stories are usually good, though the 4th one was of lesser quality.

          • Geoff Peterson

            Like I aluded to before: politely agreeing to disagree is a perfectly viable outcome in this case.

          • Garbageface

            You watch horror movies a lot. Are you supporting amoral behavior by watching adults getting brutally murdered all the time? Did you watch It? Because as you correctly point out, it’s about child murder.

            Do you really believe that people okay with a baby being murdered in a movie are rooting for it to die? That just blows my mind.

          • Jennifer

            Well actually Garbageface, when I mentioned amoral behavior, I meant in the world in general. No, I have not seen the new IT, but I did see the original and they cover the awful matter both terrifyingly and without rolling around in carnage. The way something’s portrayed can make all the difference and not all thrillers have people being murdered throughout. As for people being ok with a baby dying, I expect to see this portrayed in stories. What horrified me was reading the gory details about the child’s death and seeing people say they wish they could see that. It’s possible, though, that some at least were more excited by the idea of a historical Pennywise than a dead child.

          • Mike tantatelli

            May I ask you a question? Why do you watch horror films?

          • Jennifer

            Sure. I watch them because I love excitement and suspense, and sometimes they have really powerful and deep stories. There are also often puzzles to solve and mysteries to figure out. Thanks for asking.

    • Garbageface

      Are you complaining about violence in movies on a horror site? Fuck offffffffffff

      • Jennifer

        Oh sorry, I didn’t know we were required to root for everything they churned out. Even deleted scenes!

      • Mike tantatelli

        Hahaha

    • Brian McNatt

      Yeah! Why can’t popular stories return to the good old days of wolves devouring grandmas, or wicked stepsisters getting their eyes pecked out by birds, or innocent women getting turned into hideous monsters just because they happened to get raped in a goddess’ local temple?

      • Jennifer

        All of the people you described are adults, not babies. The violent scenes you mentioned are important parts of their stories (except the bird pecking thing), while ADDING the horrific death of a baby to a horror story already complete is nothing but shock value.

        • Syrael

          adults back then only lived half as long as we do now… if yo u wanna pull that card moreso all those characters were probably teenagers by todays standards so you’re wrong

    • THE SKULL

      It’s just a movie. Grow up.

      • Jennifer

        Yeah, adults love seeing babies get butchered and eaten, and films have nothing to do with reflecting culture.

        • Mike tantatelli

          I wouldn’t say love. But there’s some people who don’t get offended by fake things. Some people don’t think that their point of view is the right one. Some people are just a little more laid back than others. Some people don’t want to withhold something from everyone because they don’t approve of it.

          • Jennifer

            So the movie makers are “withholding” the death of a baby from us? I guess some people were acting oddly deprived.

      • Mike tantatelli

        Hopefully they don’t watch Clown or A Serbian Film lol

  • BCB

    Daaaaaang! Talk about DARK!

  • zid

    I’m glad this was cut. The film was perfect as it is. This just comes off as unnecessary grimdark for the sake of being edgy.

    • Jennifer

      Well, exactly. Confuses me all the more that people rave about how THAT would make it truly scary.

  • Baron Von Marlon

    Big whoop. It happened in Feast 2.
    And in this script it seems to be happening out of sight. I get the impression we’d only see Pennywise’s back and the frightened woman. So why all the fuss?

    • Jennifer

      Because we know a woman just gave up her child, we hear the horrific effects. Plus, the baby is crying and sometimes sound effects are more distressing than actually seeing things; someone screaming repeatedly is harder for me to absorb than seeing them stabbed briefly.

      • Baron Von Marlon

        So? It’s a freakin’ horror movie for feck’s sake. Just because you personally don’t want to see it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t do things like that in movies.

        • Jennifer

          You asked why anyone would have a problem and I answered. Actually most wouldn’t want to see it, which is why horror films don’t usually have it.

          • Baron Von Marlon

            Maybe (horror) films don’t usually have it because movies are still a business so there’s always a financial aspect.

          • Jennifer

            Well that too. They want to appeal to people.

        • Mike tantatelli

          I totally agree. Kids die in real life all the time, in brutal and horrific ways. But most movies refuse to show it. It drives me crazy. I’m not some lunatic that wants to see kids getting killed. But if it happens in a movie I’m not gonna flip out and think it’s too brutal or too much and shouldn’t be shown. It’s just a movie. A story, fiction. Not real ya know.

          • Jennifer

            Yeah, they die in brutal ways all the time, so why do we need to be reminded in movies by UPPING it a little? I’m getting tired of the “it’s just a movie” line, because sounds, visuals, and ideas are not just anything, they have affects on people. That’s why so many have trigger warnings.

          • Mike tantatelli

            They CAN have effects on people. Some people. People that are easily offended or people that can’t distinguish real from fake. Not everyone that sees something graphic in a movie is traumatized by it, offended or sickened. And those that are not bothered aren’t horrible, sick, twisted people either.

          • Jennifer

            It’s not only people who can’t tell the difference between real and fake who are..affected by movies. It’s not just the power in stories, it’s the primal physical reaction we can have to sounds and images.

  • Ocelot006 .

    People abort babies left and right. Why should this be disturbing?

  • Aslinn McIntyre

    There are a lot of scenes they have actors try out that are extreme to see where actors are in mime and mimickry and how they handle a difficult scene. In the book and film there is a scene where they see Pennywise eating a child’s leg. Cannibalism feeds into a primal and baser fear we have as humans. Being consumed means you are eventually shit out. Crude, but true, it makes you less than nothing once you wend your way through the gut of the beast. seeing it confirms your fears, cements the belief you would try to fight against being a meal for the beast, and the fact this article has caused such reaction is actually affirming, positive because I think I would and we should worry if it were not.

  • I just heard this on the podcast driving home tonight. I couldn’t help but imagine how intense that scene could’ve been. Also the name “Extra Skarsgard” is hilarious.

    • Jennifer

      I’d love it if they could somehow do the scene without the baby’s horrible death, or leaving the child’s fate a mystery and just showing the mom lose her mind. It’s totally terrifying without the cannibalism bent.

      • Mike tantatelli

        Why leave out death part?

        • Jennifer

          It’s the manner of death in this scene we don’t need to see or hear.

          • Mike tantatelli

            Please don’t say “we don’t need to see it.” YOU don’t want to see it, but please don’t make the decision for everyone else about what they do or do not or should or should not see. Thank you

          • Jennifer

            I think the term “need” would be a little weird if applied in the positive here.

          • Garbageface

            You are such an unbelievable asshole

          • Jennifer

            You flip out in thin-skinned insults because someone thinks we don’t need to hear the crunching of something feeding on a baby. Again, great discussion/arguing skills, you bring so much to the table.

          • Garbageface

            Anyone who thinks they get to decide what other people watch are the worst people

          • Jennifer

            Yeah I’m sure that’s the worst thing they could do, except I don’t decide what anyone watches and never said I did, which would be an amusing claim.

    • Mike tantatelli

      I had a bunch of my comments dejected that weren’t vulgar, insulting or no profanity. I think someone got upset because I made a few comments they didn’t have an answer for. Haha

  • Dannyll Kaanan

    Damn I wanna see this scene, hope they add it next film! This IT was so watered down I was expecting more gore and disturbing scenes especially if your making a film about a clown that eats kids. Americans are such pussys when it comes to scenes like these. GOD it’s just a film get a grip people.

    • THE SKULL

      I think it was more based off the book

  • cat

    i don’t have a problem with them cutting it out, they seemed like they were trying to play the movie pretty safe having little gore to appeal to a wider audience.

  • KevinR1990

    …whew. For a second there, I thought that you were gonna say that they actually filmed the sewer orgy scene.

    • Jennifer

      ..Also disturbing, on a different level. Luckily it’s been confirmed they have no intention of doing that.

  • Patrick Curley

    Abagail and the eater of worlds… is Bray Wyatt from WWE…

  • Trav

    Well, this is interesting. I wonder if it is going to be a deleted scene for the DVD release, or included in Chapter Two.

  • Wil McMullen

    That scene really needs to be in the 2nd film! It creeped me out.

  • Mike tantatelli

    Too bad, that woulda have been cool. I hate how kids getting murdered in movies is taboo. They show pretty much anything else, but a child getting murdered is just too much. I liked “Clown”, not just because it showed kids being murdered, I thought it was a pretty good horror flick. But it didn’t hold back, i respect that.

    • Weresmurf

      IT had some pretty graphic scenes… Georgie… the girl in the cupboard, all the floating kids.

    • I think it people deliberately added kids being killed for shock value then it’d justify why it’s a taboo, but deliberately editing a movie to take out scenes (i.e. Dawn of the Dead) seems like such a huge effort just to avoid offending someone. As long as it doesn’t end up being perverse then I don’t see the problem.

      I was genuinely shocked when you actually got to see Georgie’s bloody stump arm trailing along the floor, because I was expecting it to be closer to the mini series.

      • ForestCityJoe

        Yo I felt the same way! When PW opened wide and snapped his arm I thought “OHHH MAN this is NOT the miniseries”. Really gave me a chill, the Georgie part of the book had stuck with me for over 25 years since I first picked the novel up, seeing it live on screen was crazy.

        • That and the bit with him crawling away crying, it was really chilling! They absolutely nailed it in this movie

    • Jeans Wilder

      Loved Clown

  • Jennifer

    Wow. Well obviously the film was not just for shock value, part of the proof being that they excluded the useless and horrific baby scene.

  • Jack Derwent

    On one hand I get how it foreshadows Pennywise making the offer to the Losers at the end but that at least made sense because he was probably scared and trying to bargain. This doesn’t make a whole lot of sense in comparison.

  • Jennifer

    LOL Well thank you, I appreciate you asking and discussing too 🙂

  • Incredible, that was chilling to read, would’ve loved to see it! It sounds like they adapted parts of what he says to the end scene (i.e. the weeds part) so unsure if it’s something we’d ever see

  • Bobby Jones

    i would’ve liked It a 1000 times more if I got to watch baby eating. kids suck!

  • Brad Tyler

    That sounds like an awesome scene! I hope they did film it and we’ll see it on a bluray release (but I doubt it 🙁 )

  • llcc1103

    so there was an actual scene that was scary? too bad it was cut.

  • elizabeth croninger

    Probably to close reality for Hollywood

  • Mr. Dry

    Ok, he eats a baby and that kind of shockingly dark moments have their value but I’d still prefer seeing his origin though the Chud ritual, that could deliever some trippy moments also.

    This thing killing an innocent baby or a child is very pervert and sick hellish idea!!! And as for phrase the jumpscares are shit, I will tell you what no movie, comicbook, video game, cartoon or anything else is perfect and generally internationaly masterpiece!!! Me I love Horror Movies like friday the 13th franchise because it has simple good, and entertaining story, characters, awesome crazy shit and killings and fights and the stoey and the character and the personality of Jason and his Mother is emotional, toughing, tragic, dramatic and relatable and it can happen to anyone who is a good parent that has a very innocent, good and kind child like Jason that even that is deformed or retarted is still a living being and good innocent kind kid that didh’t hurt anyone and yet horrible teenagers and people including his asshole damn father have been hurting, hating and tormenting him and his mother all the time which one day oocured to jason have been drown and his mother to fairly start getting revenge by killing his father and many fucking bratts whic was for me is satisfying even when I see Jason slaughtering these assholes and the brats who invading his territories and they never leave him or his poor dead mother alone!!! That why do not judge in a very nast or snobby hateful and trolling way everything all the time, learn to appreciate and fuck the critics!!! Make your own good and healthy respectable opinion and review about about something like a movie or abook just like I do all the time in my life!!! And a horror movie with just a story and not jumpscares and good simply and simple executed cliches,scary loud and creepy horror music is not a horror movie is a drama or a soap opera which I would rather love and watch than to watch a horror movie without a jumpscare, a simple, emotional entertaining and emotiona dramatic horror story in a horror movie!!! Learn to appreciate, ask and need more simple stuff in many more movies, books, games, cartoon most of the time just like me!!!

    • Azwethinkweiz

      Not going to lie- This was kind of hard to read but I get the gist of what you were trying to say. I’d recommend reading the novel. It’s actually very good.
