The horror genre has changed drastically over the years. There was a time when horror movie sequels were one of the worst parts of the genre. 

However, It: Chapter Two is an example of how that has changed. The movie follows the characters from the first movie, just 27 year later. The humor is, though, that they still act like kids at times, adding a few laughs here and there. 

The movie’s villain, the terrifying clown known as Pennywise, may not be commonly seen in his clown form often, but still provides the scares in other forms.

As for the rest of the horror, there is a slight downgrade. 

The movie is filled jump scares that, at times, are often cheap and used just to keep the audience on their toes. While some work well to deliver fear, other scares just feel useless and unnecessary. 

That doesn’t mean that there aren’t jump scares that are excellent, though. Although the movie is longer than it needs to be and the ending is somewhat weak, the movie is entertaining and it is worth seeing for viewers who enjoyed the first movie.
