    Thanks for the welcome. Haven't been dissuaded from reading any book. What I don't like isn't the bloody stuff, its eating inards.

    Hi BillFan! I don't think that I am alone to say that most of us here are the novel readers. Hope you do so. Movies are one thing, his books another - by far.

    As I've said, I just started IT. I enjoy a good book. While I may not be an avid Stephen King reader. I have the Harry Potter books, and will admit that the books are far superior to the movies. Out of the the movies, I say 1 and 2 are the best. They follow their books for the most part. Very few changes were made, and what was changed didn't hurt the stories overall in my opinion.

    I tend to find gore to be the least interesting part of a horror movie, but I do think any adaptation of King's work shouldn't shy away from depicting any of the gory scenes he's written that are integral to the story. That said, I don't know how much to realistically expect in chapter two based on the book (I'm sure there will be changes or new scenes, of course).

    Exactly my sentiments. I have no problem with gore that is absolutely needed for the movie. I just don't want it overdone just for the sake of it.

    Bah, gimme gore. Big heaping helpings of greasy, grimy gopher guts.

    I was really sketchy about the first part and thought I wouldn't like it. I ended up loving the movie and have seen it 3 times, which never happens. I have faith in the director that he will bring an equally entertaining follow up. Really curious as to who will play the grown up Losers.

    I was almost the exact same way. I wasn't super excited about the movie. I was worried that it was going to end up like most remakes, and be terrible. I was surprised, and got more than I was expecting. IT has become my favorite Stephen King adaption above my old favorite, Silver Bullet.

    Is this some kind of song from a King book? Sorry if this is a stupid question. I don't know most of his books.

    nope. Something all normal kids were forced to sing. Loudly at random times.
