Stephen King Bonus Ep
With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)
IT: Chapter 2
It’s time for another Stephen King Bonus ep and Margo D. is joined by Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast to talk about the Andy Muschietti film that is a follow-up to the mass success of the 2017 first chapter which is one of the most successful horror films of all time.
Chapter 2 follows the adult members of “The Losers Club” as they return to Derry, Maine to take on Pennywise the Clown one more time. How much of the original 1986 IT novel is featured in the movie? Why is it almost three hours long? Do we like the adult casting? All of this is discussed and more.
Two years ago, Margo & Deana disagreed on how they felt about the first chapter. What do they think about the sequel? You will have to listen below to find out.
Discussed in this episode:
