** Ben's list of movie vampires that Pennywise's Dracula looks nothing like includes Reggie Nalder. His vampire role was in ''Salem's Lot''.

In 2009, Creator/WarnerBros (who owned Creator/{{Lorimar}} when the original TV adaption was made, but was folded into Warner Bros. TV in 1993) announced that a remake of ''It'' was being planned, with Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison tabbed to produce. However, the film spent some time in DevelopmentHell until Andrés Muschietti, director of ''Film/{{Mama}}'', was attached and production began in summer 2016, with Creator/BillSkarsgard as Pennywise the Dancing Clown to be released in 2017. See Film/It2017 for that.

** Eddie Kasprak's mother and wife are also an example, although the abuse is more emotional in their case.

** Actually no, she is still being over the top even in this case. While it can certainly be argued that regular exposure to ionising radiation is something that should be limited, there is little evidence fluoroscopes 'gave you cancer'. Only one salesperson - people using and demonstrating these machines for ''years'' - has been confirmed as developing cancer. This was a BCC (basal cell carcinoma) of the foot and could easily have happened whether he was exposed to radiation or not.

** [[spoiler: [[{{Squick}} As an eleven year old, Beverly has sex with all of her friends in the sewer]] after defeating It. This is in order to revive their sense of camaraderie and unite the group long enough to escape the sewers of Derry. This is also possibly done as a TakeThat to her father who has already expressed his belief that she is having sex with them. Obviously it was not a scene they could replicate in the movie.]]

* TheFellowshipHasEnded: [[spoiler:After defeating IT for the first time, all the seven members of the Loser's Club never meet again. Eventually, they all go in their separate ways, and completely forget about each other (except for Mike but he implies that even with desperate efforts to remember, he will forget why he's even carrying out the measures. Specifically he brings up the example that he will write his friends down but the ink itself may fade, and even if he can keeps renewing the ink, he may forget why he's doing it and why these names are even relevant).]] Downplayed in the film as [[spoiler: the forgetting isn't really mentioned and it's confirmed that Ben and Beverley end up together, which was only implied in the book]].

* {{Foreshadowing}}: IT scares Beverly in the bathroom and her dad rushes in, demanding what all the screaming was about. Beverly lies and says that she just saw a spider in the drain. [[spoiler:Which is IT's true physical manifestation. They even fight it in the sewer.]] Also, in the last section of the book, when [[spoiler: Al chases Beverly into the Barrens, trying to kill her because he's been possessed by IT]] Lars Theraminius starts crying because he sees Marsh turning into a spider. It gives him nightmares for a week.

* ProductionForeshadowing: In the story "Gray Matter" from his book ''Literature/NightShift'', King tells us about a sewer worker who went down into a pipe one day and allegedly saw "a spider as big as a good-sized dog settin' in a web full of kitties and such all wrapped up in silk thread."

* JerkassHasAPoint: [[MyBelovedSmother Mrs. Kaspbrak]] usually doesn't let Eddie do anything, because she lives in terror of him dying of illness or injury. In the case of the shoe store X-ray machine, however, she was quite correct when she screamed at Eddie that those things give you cancer.

* YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm: In addition to It assuming various guises to make children afraid and thus taste better, this is also implied; seeing Its true form can ''completely destroy someone's sanity.'' When the Losers' Club battles IT, the "true form" they see-a GiantSpider--is said to be their minds desperately trying to make sense of the horrible being, and a massive arachnid is as close as they can get.
