Should I watch ‘It: Chapter One’ before watching the sequel?

Some Twitter users say you don’t need to see the first movie to understand the plot of the sequel. If you’re a horror fan, however, you should still see the first movie. Regardless, the fan reactions for It: Chapter Two confirm it is just as disturbing, eerie and creepy as the first film, if not more.

It: Chapter 2 was so good! The transitions were aesthetically pleasing and innovative. I loved the playful yet suspenseful animation. Some stuff could’ve been shortened, but overall it was a good movie,” said one Twitter user. This also might not be the end of It.

According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, “there won’t be a post-credits scene, however, since Stephen King’s story will be concluded in the film’s two-hour and fifty-minute run time. However, we might not have seen the last of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. When It director Andy Muschietti was asked if he’d ever return to direct another It sequel, he replied by saying, ‘Eventually.’”

It: Chapter Two is currently available in theaters.
