IT Chapter Two Is Being Turned Into An Immersive Experience In The UK And It Sounds Absolutely Terrifying
When you stop to think about it, being terrified voluntarily is an odd and slightly wicked fascination.
It's comparable to those people who enjoy visiting haunted locations and being followed around fields by individuals wearing strange costumes. What would motivate you to achieve it?
I just don't really get why some people enjoy horror in general; for me, experiencing fear is not enjoyable.
This is the exact reason why I a) won't be seeing IT: Chapter Two and b) won't be attending this immersive experience for IT: Chapter Two.
The terrifying clown known as Pennywise, a creation of Stephen King based on his novel of the same name, is coming to the UK for an immersive experience.

The free "experience" will visit London to coincide with the sequel's release date, and it will take place at The Vaults in Waterloo's subterranean labyrinth of rooms and tunnels. It really does sound as terrifying as the main antagonist.
It's perfect, however, I'm debating sending Hook author Alfie Powell instead because he dislikes stuff like this and goes to Waterloo every day to catch a train.
Follow in the footsteps of The Losers Club with IT Chapter 2: The Vaults Experience, a massive underground labyrinth of abandoned railway tunnels with over 11,000 square feet of custom sets.
The five-day event, which takes place from August 31 to September 4, will feature nine themed areas where guests can immerse themselves in the terrifying world of Pennywise the clown and the ominous fictional town of Derry (where it is set).
It will recreate iconic scenes with strobe lighting, flashing images, and headphones and give visitors a sneak peek at some clips from the upcoming film.
This seems quite cool, to be honest, if you're in the London area and a fan of IT. Free tickets for the event can be obtained online beginning on August 6 at 9 a.m.
This comes after IT: Chapter 2's director, Andy Muschietti, disclosed that the movie will be two hours and 45 minutes long, which is a relatively long runtime for a horror movie.
In interviews with various media sites, Muschietti described the creative process that resulted in the finished movie:
A movie is very different when you’re writing the script and you’re building a story compared to what the final product is. At the beginning, when you’re writing and building the beats of the story, everything that you put in there seems very essential to the story.
However, when you have the movie finally edited and it’s four hours long, you realise that some of the events and some of the beats can be easily lifted but the essence of the story remains intact.
You cannot deliver a four hour movie because people will start to feel uncomfortable - no matter what they see - but we ended up having a movie that is 2 hours and 45 minutes, and the pacing is very good.
Nobody who’s seen the movie has had any complaint.
No one who has viewed the film has had any complaints. There will always be those who desire more, as producer Barbara Muschietti revealed:
We will put out a director’s cut because this time it definitely merits it. We have some amazing scenes that didn’t make it into the movie. You have to make choices sometimes and some things cannot be in this theatrical release but are definitely worthy of people seeing them at a later date.
- Barbara Muschietti
Bravo to everyone who has the guts to see the sequel and go through the immersive experience.
