I never seemed to understand the role of these high casualties when It goes to sleep or when It returns. Seeing how It never does anything without a good reason and having an actual purpose, these just seem to be pointless massacres. It never does these personal, so no meat to eat, or fear to harvest on. It is indifferent about people's souls, so simply killing someone won't give It any benefits. I fail to see the point of all, except Mr. King wanted to make It an even more terrifying and horrible creature. And sometimes It doesn't even kill a lot of people upon withdrawing/returning, seen in Adrian Mellon's case, where he was the only victim, and It indeed was feeding upon his corpse. So what's the purpose of these bloodsheds?
