In honor of Halloween, we are returning to our favorite space alien and supernatural creature, Pennywise the clown from IT. Today we are focusing specifically on IT Chapter 2 and the Ritual of Chüd. I've seen people cover a lot of the details in this movie but there is something I think EVERYONE missed! You see, the Losers did not defeat Pennywise. The creepy clown HIMSELF ensured his own demise, and I'm about to tell you how!

    After seeing these movies, and the deep dive commentaries about them, I'm glad big budget movies were made about such a great book, but at the same time I'm also wishing they just didn't do it at all. The best case for doing a proper onscreen adaptation of IT would be a multi season TV show, where the story could be properly told over the right amount of time. Even with these combined run times, they still took a wood chipper to the actual story and made an absolute mess of the narrative.

    “Eddie dies the same way in both versions.” I mean in this he gets impaled, in the original he falls about 10 feet and died

      I'm guessing he meant the book, but even that's still an inaccurate comparison considering he gets his arm bitten off and bleeds to death after he shoves his inhaler into Pennywise's mouth.

    Eddie didn't run away, he was the only one that actually confronted his fear when getting the token (in this case he strangled the man)

    Actually to poke a whole in the theory a reason why the ritual didn’t work was because they didn’t have stans token since he died

    Penny wise was bullied as a human but after he became the clown everyone feared him and then the losers made him fear than after they insult him he was brought back to his alive days where he was bullied making him feel small and weak just like in the movie

    So basically like Freddy Krueger if you're not afraid of Pennywise all his power goes away and he's basically mortal? That works since fear is his main fuel, like Freddy.

    Also the ritual was never proven to work and it sorta worked only because they believed in it so they could of believed that playing jump rope would beat him then it probably would hurt him because its their unity and faith that hurts him not anything else but unity friendship and faith but the faith that you can hurt him, almost as if he was imagination and only could be beaten by imagination.

    Its like raiders of the lost ark (Indiana Jones) nothing in the movie mattered because the nazis end up with the ark and open it, so Dr Jones is irrelevant in this movie and might as well just fast forward to the end and skip the movie entirely.

  41. Severe

    Maybe I misinterpreted the Ritual or it's been too long since watching the movie but Mike gets the artifact box for the Ritual and we see at the end that he created a fake illustration panel to cover up the true final step of the ritual. I interpreted final step of the ritual being that all the losers (or also the native american tribe survivors shown on the panel) have to sacrifice their lives in order for the dead lights to be captured. Mike knew that they would never agree to come back to die for the pact, so he tricks them into going on this token hunt to give them a reason to gather for the final showdown. That's why Pennywise references that Mike knew what would have to be done, and that he was just keeping the "fake" ritual going hoping they would all die before it was revealed that he tricked them into dying for it.

    The movie does address why the ritual doesn't work. Unlike in the book/original mini series, Mike lied about the ritual. Bill even yells at him when Pennywise mocks them about it. Mike was hinging on the Loser's Club believing it would work enough that it would, since Pennywise's power comes from belief

    Wouldn’t the ritual still be wrong? Eddie was killed but not burned, & the Ritual of Chüd states to not only destroy the tokens, but to burn them. May you please go into more detail about this or debunk what I am stating, thank you :)

    There's actually one part you forgot Mat Budd, i think to complete the ritual of cuhd, mike actually scratch off the last part of the ritual, the sacrifice for the whole group, it only happen after pennywise told mike that he never told them the truth about the ritual, there's a moment when there is a CGI part came up, and I actually taught it is part of the ritual to sacrifice themselves tho, but still, your theory is always right mat. 👌

    I’ve only watched the beginning of the video but they do explain why the ceremony doesn’t work and why the nagging worked. The ceremony didn’t work because it was fake and the nagging worked because IT feeds off of fear as they showed in the first movie.

    14:39 This part is blatantly untrue. Pennywise didn't shrink at all until the losers had gotten in at least a dozen insults, how the H is richie's two supposed to have any immediate effect? Also Pennywise looks very pissed at Richie when he starts doing this, which could actually be a sign that it _was_ working, and furthermore, Pennywise uses the dead lights on Richie instead of doing some kind of attack because using the dead lights would make him immediately shut up. Very bad read, my friend, this is why making videos based off memory is frowned upon.
