The Brook Reading Podcast

Sep 22, 2019

Episode 70 is my first film review!  My friends (and former co-hosts of Brook Reading) and I dissect each nuance of “IT:  Chapter Two” after a Stephen King themed weekend together!  

Alison from the four parts of “IT” on Brook Reading, Victoria of Pocket Change Productions and the Horror Academic, and our good friend and fellow King fanatic, Crissa, discuss minority stereotypes and how they were butchered within this storyline.  We look at the myriad of differences from the book and the movie and how the movie did not do the book justice. Other topics include creepy fetishes, bratty youngins, Blumhouse, SPOILER ALERT!, “Pinhead’s my sexy monster!”, and so on.


We fit this story into the horror genre of today versus when we grew up.  Does this fit as a horror movie today, independent from the book? Yes. Did we think that choices were made based on the generation of people that will seek this movie out?  Absolutely. Did we enjoy it?’ll have to listen and find out!   


“Monsters are real, and ghosts are real, too.  They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” - Stephen King
