Question: Are the other kids who are floating dead? We know Bev isn't and she is floating, what about the rest? Are they dead, if so why hasn't Pennywise eaten them? And if not, why kill Patrick but don't make him float too? He isn't part of the Losers club.

New this month Answer: The other kids are dead. Beverly is likely being used as bait. Pennywise is saving them to eat later. We don't get a clear look a the other kids, so Patrick may very well be among them.

Question: Why doesn't Pennywise kill any other children during his hunt for the Losers? There is that one boy whose arm we see being eaten by Pennywise when Mike is being beaten up, but is that the only death while the Losers have known about him? There must be hundreds of kids in Derry, was there really no one else for him to kill in this time?

New this month Answer: Several times during the film they mention other children who have gone missing. It is still hunting in the meantime.

Question: When Pennywise is eating Stan's face, why is it he never killed him? Stan was scared enough to be eaten and we saw Pennywise bite Georgie's arm off easily enough, so what took him so long with Stan?

Answer: Its possible It was already weakened by the others not being afraid and Stan was his only source for power.

Answer: I think the reason he didn't kill Stan straight away is because well this I my therory but I think pennywise was trying to torture the losers so maybe that why he didn't kill stan straight away.

Question: Do we know how Georgie actually dies? We see his arm get ripped off, are we to assume Pennywise dragged him down then ate him immediately or left him to bleed to death and then ate him or that he is also "floating"?

Answer: I would think that the shock of having ones arm ripped off would be more than enough to die from that injury alone. Georgie tries to crawl away so his death is not instantaneous. But bleeding to death is a very real probability. Could have been cardiac arrest.

Question: Why does this version of Pennywise look so scary as opposed to Tim Curry's version? Tim's version looks harmless enough that children would definitely go up to him but Bill's version would certainly have scared a child even today.

Answer: It's a matter of artistic choice to create a different look and mood from its predecessor. The filmmakers of the new movie made Pennywise more overtly malevolent, whereas the Tim Curry version portrayed the character as benevolent looking to hide an evil interior, and be able to more easily gain children's trust..

Answer: Artistic choice, and (directly or indirectly) being more faithful to the original novel. Pennywise's appearance in this film is almost an exact replica of the book's descriptions, with a 19th century style added to it, and some minor changes.

Question: Why does Pennywise kill Georgie and Patrick almost immediately, but then spend time tormenting the other kids instead of outright killing them?

Serious B

Chosen answer: In order to install the fear of death in someone, to put them in your grasp, you must kill those closest to you. In doing so the fear is always inside them. Pennywise will always be in their thoughts and dreams. Which will constantly torture the kids, which what he wants.
