What did NOT make it into IT and why it may be best it didn't.

IF you read IT by Stephen King, you may recall there were some elements that could have garnered the film an NC17 or above rating.. Group sex.. masturbation while torturing animals.. and Bevvie's dad doing MORE to Bevvie than worrying about her..



Lots.
Lots of things could have upset the apple cart.

What resulted was a stellar film that, in a perfect would, would be worthy of some Oscars (we know Hollywood doesn't like to reward horror often however) .. If these few elements would have been included, perhaps the movie's successful script would never have made it to cinemas..

MOVIEPILOT has a bit more on the items that floated from the script into oblivion.  Read with caution.

Concerning the MOST controversial of all (and there are a LOT), this:


Lost in the sewers and with nowhere to turn, Beverley realizes that the only way for the group to escape is for each boy to take it in turns and put their "thing" inside of her. By losing their virginity together, the Losers' Club can then once more tap into the power of the Turtle and find their way to safety. Yes, this scene is even more insane than the Deadlights themselves, no Muschietti didn't include it in his adaptation and yes, Stephen King himself continues to defend the sequence, even now.

Whether you believe that the sewer gang-bang should have appeared in the movie or not, it's fascinating to see how Muschietti tried to remain faithful to #IT while still navigating the controversy of #StephenKing's original text. It's no wonder then that Cary Fukunaga's original script never made it into production. After all, there's only so many controversial plot points one can add to a movie before the inevitable starfish attacks and incestuous rapes take things a step too far.



The HORROR REPORT ponders if these omissions are such a bad thing. After all, the film was WILDLY successful and will most likely continue to be throughout at least the early autumn.. Ignoring some of these aspects of the book, even with Stephen King adamantly defending them, may have been the best decision ever made.. mainstream for the masses! The Loser's Club wins.

Cool blend of horror movie characters with HE-MAN action figures

Horror movie fans who once played with HE-MAN toys in their childhood may have the perfect gift ready to be purchased: Horror icons in the shape and style of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE toys..

The toy line was unveiled by FUNKO at a toy fair.. it is called the SAVAGE WORLD HORROR LINEUP.



Reaction has been mixed.. But why? ... the nostalgia of the 80s coupled with hugely instrumental horror movie characters--all born during the same time period by the way ..

Even the packaging is similar to the containers that contained the HE-MAN toys of the 80s generation.

A long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”
