** On top of all of this, Dean has been seeing Bill and his friends everywhere he goes. Richie yelled at him in the restaurant, Bill talked to him in the street then was following him around at the carnival and into the fun house to see him die. Dean probably thinks Bill is stalking him and his responsible for killing him.

Added DiffLines:

** Before that, we get a really suspenseful scene with Eddie walking down a filthy, dark hallway full of used medical equipment, complete with close-up shots of rusty syringes and Eddie getting tangled up in some IV bags, all while his mother is behind a curtain with only her shadow shown pleading for help. The fact that she's [[NothingIsScarier hidden from view]] the entire time gives you the interpretation that something is seriously wrong with her, like she's afflicted with some sort of disease or BodyHorror. While she turns out to be normal, albeit terrified and strapped to a chair, it still doesn't get any better from there with the above scene coming into play.

Added DiffLines:

** The whole scene with Richie in the park is just dripping with UncannyValley. The DaylightHorror aesthetic, the surroundings turning a bizarre, vivid blue tint, the distorted music playing as Pennywise sings his song, and there's also the crowd in the background. As soon as Pennywise shows up, they immediately stop what they're doing, turn towards Richie and just stare at him, still as a statue. Then when Pennywise sings his song, they all begin swaying in unison. It feels very unnatural. While Pennywise's jokes [[NightmareRetardant may damper the scariness]], it would no doubt be horrifying to anyone in Richie's shoes.


* Pennywise as a whole in this movie. As mentioned above, this is not the same Pennywise of the first film, who liked to toy around with the Losers just because he could torment them, and didn’t take them seriously. Pennywise was nearly killed last time, he’s scared of the Losers, and now the Losers are all back he’s out for blood. He wants to break them all down psychologically, torment them, corner them all into his lair, and wants to then have the pleasure of killing them. He’s been dreaming of this, by the way, for ''27 years''. And he means it.

** Good LORD, the form Mrs. Kersh takes is absolutely nightmarish. A naked, zombified, lanky, gross elderly wraith as tall as the ceiling, with long spindly limbs, an utterly inhuman face, horrifying googly eyes which are way too big and ''extra mouths on her neck'' that swiftly chases after Beverly.

* Henry is reintroduced as being shown to have spilled out of the sewers after Mike pushed him down the well. He is washed out along the corpses of Pennywise’s victims, screaming incoherently as he resurfaces. That alone is pretty much an indication that whatever he saw down there [[GoMadFromTheRevelation completely demolished his psyche.]]

** While we’re on the topic of Henry, he’s a rather tough cookie to kill. It takes a hatchet through the brain to kill him. He survived falling down a massive well, and survived a knife through the chest, stuff which would have killed most normal humans. In fact, they don’t even seem to phase him anywhere as much as they should realistically. Is this him just being really hard to kill? Or could it be that It imbued him with unnatural survivability, on top of breaking and taking over his mind, so he could kill the Losers for Pennywise? (Note: It takes a hatchet through the brain in order for him to finally go down)

** It can get worse as you think about it. [[FridgeHorror The top of It’s true form now retains the likeness of Bob Gray, the original Pennywise ever since his presumable descent into madness - and therefore, his symbiosis with It]]. It’s true form, or just the most of it that the human mind can comprehend, is a permanent mockery of the very basis of his design, and shows how far eons of nightmares have come.

** As the Losers tear out Pennywise's heart, it can be heard beating - and, as the group prepares to crush it, it beats progressively faster until it reaches a rapid speed... meaning that now, ''[[HorrifyingTheHorror It - the ancient, abstract embodiment of predation itself - is absolutely terrified of its unavoidable demise]]''.
** There’s something a bit terrifying about the way Richie savagely rips of Pennywise’s one remaining arm when he’s already going through a horrific death. While it’s definitely deserved, Richie going just berserk because of what Pennywise did to Eddie is a bit unsettling.

Pennywise is back... with a fresh dose of Nightmare Fuel to boot. The second part to a story based on arguably Stephen King's scariest novel, and a sequel to a film considered absolutely horrifying, featuring a Pennywise who survived his defeat by the losers and is now out for revenge as a result. And we know how horrible he was in the first film, when he was just toying with his prey, this time ''this thing doesn't hold back.''

* The way Pennywise dies is pretty horrific, [[KarmicDeath comeuppance aside]]. The giant clown spider slowly and plainly dissolves into a small lump of flesh, becoming almost like a shrivelled, melted baby but with multiple arms and weird tendrils for legs. He becomes completely and utterly helpless, enabling Mike to [[AndShowItToYou reach into Pennywise's chest and pull out It's heart.]] The Losers then crush it into paste as Pennywise screams in pain before finally falling silent.

** Before smashing through the glass, just as Bill tells the kid that he can save him, they hear a sliding noise from the glass in front of Bill. The camera then looks down to reveal Pennywise ''licking the glass with a very long tongue''.

*** As with everything Pennywise does, the sheer glee he takes in tormenting his victims and prolonging their suffering for as long as possible is just fucking creepy. He looks so happy and amused when he first bangs his head on the glass, letting his victims know exactly what he’s going to do; and gaining sick satisfaction from watching them suffer and anticipate the inevitable.



** Pennywise doesn’t just bite out a piece of flesh from Adrian - he bites so deep and so hard that he instantly kills Adrian by ''ripping out his heart.''

*** This wouldn’t instantly kill Adrian. Pennywise knows this. Adrian would die a slow and excruciating death from the blood loss caused by the massive cavity in his armpit. Pennywise wants Adrian to suffer for as long as possible.



** Although seeing Eddie hit Pennywise with the spear and save Richie is awesome, the sight of the spear in his deadlights, with Pennywise’s face fully lifted up and coughing up deadlight juice is pretty horrific.

Added DiffLines:

* During the final fight, Richie overcomes his fears and faces Pennywise. But during his [[TheReasonYouSuck speech]], he gets hit with Pennywise’s deadlights and just becomes catatonic almost immediately, unable to deal with the sheer horror of the deadlights, his whole body just going limp.

** Arguably, the scariest part of the scene is how unprovoked the initial attack was against Adrian. He and his partner are just minding their own business when the BrattyHalfPint walks up and spits at them. Adrian attempts to stand up for himself, but is beaten and thrown off the bridge, where he most likely would have died alone even without Pennywise's intervention. Worst of all is that [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters there's no indication It was controlling or influencing the attackers in any way]]. It can hit a little too close to home if the viewers are part of the LGBT community or are close to someone who is.

* Henry’s adult self is just as terrifying. The way he chases after the red balloon, delighted to see Pennywise, the embodiment of ''pure torment and evil''. The fact he’s really clearly been taken over by Pennywise but with just enough of him there that he’s still Henry - who is an insane, psychopathic bully already. Or how deranged and incoherent he is at pretty much all times.

They argue over what the hell the message is and means, and what order the words go in. Then they realise they haven’t got Beverly’s word. Beverly gets ‘Stanley’. The implication is clear. Then as they realise what's happened to Stanley, Pennywise taunts them with horrifying hallucinations. They immediately remember why they were so scared.
