Trivia

When the adult Beverly visits her old home, she sees three names on the buzzers. Two of the names are historical murderers, Starkweather and Burke. Starkweather refers to Charles Starkweather, a young man who killed his girlfriend's family when they attempted to prevent them from being together, then took his girlfriend on a murderous spree in the 1950's American Midwest. Burke refers to William Burke, a man who teamed with William Hare, who first rob graves to provide corpses for medical study in 1820's Scotland, then turned to murdering their lodgers to earn more money..

Goofs

In the 1990 mini-series adaptation, that in the "Cemetery" scene, Pennywise alludes to the fact that one of the graves he dug (at the far end) is already taken"-the only grave with a "gravestone;" a large white cross. We knew that Stanley Uris had just killed himself, so the grave must have "been" for Stanley Uris. However, they made it a point (and mentioned it more than once) that Stanley Uris was Jewish. Therefore, a "Christian Cross" would have been an inappropriate marker. See more »

It Comes Back

It Part 2 (1990)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This second episode starts off with The Losers Club showing up back in their old town where Pennywise (Tim Curry) is once again up to his evil tricks. As the friends get caught up on their lives, a sudden dread starts to build up as they know they're going to have to face their fears once again.

Of the two episodes I'm going to have to say that I think this one here is the stronger of the two. I would say that the first one had more creepy moments but what I loved about this second episode is the fact that we get to see these adult characters and the impact and trauma that the events from their childhood has had on their entire lives. I thought the screenplay did a wonderful job at showing how all of these people could come back together and have to once again face down their fears as well as realize what damage these fears have had on their lives.

Once again this here was perfectly directed by Tommy Lee Wallace who manages to tell the story in such a way that you can't help but get caught up in it. His script also manages to do a great job at building these characters out and of course there's a great cast to bring them to life. It's rare for any horror film to get these many great performances but there's really not a weak spot here and this helps sell not only the character development but also the horror.

I also thought this second episode ran a lot smoother than the first and it was also much faster paced. IT is certainly one of the most memorable television films ever made and this one ends with a terrific finale that really seals the deal.
