No "Tim Curry" tag?

The dialogue in this scene will stick with me for the rest of my life.

Am I the only one who really hated the ending. I hate that the clown who was so evil and sinister was just reduced to a freakin' space spider.
Cena_mark
Having It just be a space spider took the evil out of him. It turned It into just a beast eating for survival. It killed off the amazing psychology created in Tim Curry's performance.

Tim Curry's great, of course, but this whole miniseries was a complete wreck.

Binro the Heretic
Well...that was how it was in the book. It is an incorporeal formless Lovecraftian horror that has to assume a physical form to feed and reproduce.

It crashed on primordial Earth in a meteorite and had to wait eons for lifeforms to evolve that were intelligent enough to frighten so It could feed on their fear. It frightened people by telepathically borrowing images from Its victims and assuming those fears' physical shapes.

The spider form was for reproduction. In the book, It produced egg sacks full of embryonic little Its.

This isn't the first I've complained about the ending only to get lectured on the book's true reasoning. I still think the space spider is dumb. Just thinking about it makes me want to give Stephen King a wedgie.

Binro the Heretic
You just have to accept the fact human nightmares will always be scarier than mommy spiders.

Cena_mark
But that's my point. The nightmare (Pennywise) was far scarier than the damned space spider. In the end of the movie they're not fighting nightmares, they're just slinging rocks at a dumb spider.

But that was kind of King's point, Cena. The things that are scary when we're kids lose a lot of their potency when we're older. That's why It ate children. They could be frightened more deeply and more easily.

Or maybe Stephen King just kinda sucks.

WELL MAYBE YOU SHOULD READ THE BOOKS THEN.

EvilHomer
Just kidding! Stephen King is one of those authors whom you can either read the books or watch the movies for, without much difference. He doesn't exactly suck, as TeenerTot contends, but he's not exactly brilliant either. King is a nice, light, fun read, and the movies tend to be pretty good, so take your pick and don't let any book hipsters or film snobs tell you you made the wrong choice.

One thing I will say about his books, however, is they tend to have a lot more child bondage and underage sex.

What EH said.

If you didn't like the movie's ending, what if I told you that in the book version the boys take turns running a graphically described train on little Beverly in order to unite in the power of friendship and banish the space spider?

It's like "Earthbound" if they all decided to have an underaged gangbang instead of Paula praying nine times.

Cena, I preferred Storm of the Century to this and all other King miniseries.
