It

Revealing mistake: In the library scene when Richie sees Pennywise the clown, all the balloons filled with blood are popping on people who aren't supposed to be able to see them, but one lands on a lady and you can see her jump as the balloon pops.

Video

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene were the adults go back into the sewer, and they have the feeling: "Something is coming", you can see the shadow of the cameraman, twice. One time, coming closer from a pipe, and another time, moving away. Look on the right wall/right on the floor.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the library after they found out Stan committed suicide, it shows Beverly stand up but when it cuts back to her she is sitting down and stands up.

Trivia: Tim Curry admitted that while he enjoyed working on the film, he was ultimately disappointed by the finished product, mainly due to the ending. He felt the final creature (a massive spider) was poorly executed and a massive let-down, and lacked any sense of fear or suspense.

Trivia: When the adults walk into the library, you'll see some of Bill's books on display (Bill is described as the Stephen King character), and all of Bill's books (Whether it's the name, topic, or cover picture) are based in some way on Stephen King's books. For instance - The Glowing/The Shining.

Trivia: At the library IT writes something on the type-writer, a verse which Bill tells the others his mother gave him as a kid to help with his stuttering. The verse goes "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts." In the book, young Bill used this verse to defeat IT in the Chüd ritual.

Question: What is the deal with everyone saying "beep beep" to Ritchie every time he tells a joke?

lartaker1975

Chosen answer: It's their way of telling Richie to be quiet. To get him to stop talking.

Answer: In the book it is explained that they are telling Richie to shut up.

Question: In the scene at the rock pile when the book comes to life and Pennywise says, "I'll kill you all. I'll drive you crazy and I'll kill you all", these words don't at all match whatever words his mouth is actually forming. It's so obvious. This is an audio dub to replace whatever he's supposed to be saying in the book. Does anybody have any idea what happened here?

Answer: In the only version I know his lips movement matches what is being said. Not sure what you mean, check out the scene at youtube.

Answer: I think you're mistaking Tim Curry's distinctive way of speaking as Pennywise with him being dubbed. He curls the corners of his mouth as he talks which makes his mouth look like he's saying something else. The only other film I can remember him doing something similar in is The Shadow, he kind of talks with the same mannerisms.

Question: Tim Curry is said to appear as two different characters, Pennywise and Richie's boss, but I couldn't see him as the second. Where does he appear?

Answer: I fear you may have been misinformed. He only appears as Pennywise in the film.
