Every 27 years, it comes out of hibernation to cause a series of catastrophic disasters, the latest being a string of child abductions. Modelled on the peirrot clowns of old, he employs the clownish persona as bait for young children, luring them with jokes and offers to visit his circus, but also doubles as an effective form to scare people with coulrophobia a fear of, well, clowns shitless.
He grows stronger and "seasons" his food by preying on the worst fears of his victim, relishing their terror. Pennywise is said to have vibrant red hair in the novel. And even when he DOES try to act friendly, he can hardly surpress his cravings for meat compared to his other counterparts.
In the book and miniseries, It is only vulnerable to whatever Its form is, which is partly why it favors the form of a Monster Clown with no mythology of its own, rendering It Nigh Invulnerable as Pennywise.
Here, however, Its weakness is apparently shared across all forms, rendering It vulnerable to those unafraid of It. Also subverted, in that It survives an attack that would have killed Georgie, Its then-current shape.
The abandoned house the Losers find him in is full of cobwebs, he sprouts spider legs in the final battle, and his tendency to let the corpses of his victims float in mid-air bears a disturbing resemblance to spiders catching prey in webs. These are likely all references to his literary counterpart taking on the form of a Giant Spider.
To the Losers Club. But in particular he is this to Billy for murdering his brother Georgie. His renaissance costume gives him a ghostly and otherworldy appearance, but at the same time it looks very extravegant and regal, especially compared to his Tim Curry counterpart.
A sadistic, homicidal entity who kills people and eats children like candy. It was real enough for Georgie! Beware the Silly Ones: IT can be pretty goofy, silly and laughable at times, but that does not stop him from being a vile, sadistic creature. The source of all the mysterious wrong-doings in Derry for the past three centuries.
Despite his dark nature, Pennywise does have a sense of humor. Keep on using the exact same scare tactics on victims who have matured and overcome the emotional traumas that have caused them. Bright Is Not Good: Considering his true form is the Deadlights, as in the novel, the white clothes may have been intentional to give Pennywise more light imagery.
This is what It is, at Its core — a ruthless fearmonger who needs to be feared in order to function. He absolutely delights in his monstrous cruelty and evil acts.
Part of ITs modus operandi.
Collector of the Strange: Convinces Henry Bowers to murder his father and go after the Losers. Given that the clown form is used to frighten coulrophobes AND draw children to it, Pennywise was bound to fit this trope.
He can switch from a bucktoothed, blue eyed and soft spoken clown to yellow-eyed, fanged, screaming abomination.
And in a rather frightening twist, it turns out he means it quite literally. Even before the Losers stop being afraid of him, Pennywise is reluctant to attack them when they are in a group, opting instead to pick them off one by one.
After being wounded by Bev at the Neibolt House, he slinks off rather than take on the entire group. Slashing Ben with his claws just before fleeing seems more like an attempt to get the Losers to not pursue him or possibly just lashing out in angerrather than an actual effort to kill anyone.
Later, while trying to eat Stan in the sewer, he again flees when the other Losers arrive on scene. ITs costume is a mixture of a few different outdated styles to visually convey the long history to its activity.
Even more than flesh, Pennywise needs fear to feed on and function. Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Pennywise also tries to negotiate with the Losers by telling them that it will go into a 30 year hibernation after only killing Bill but all this does is anger and motivate them.
Evil Has a Bad Sense of Humor: As always, Pennywise possesses a psychopathic sense of humor and loves to taunt its victims, taking glee in scaring them senseless. This is especially prominent in his scenes with Bev whose actress, Sophia Lillis, is only five feet tall, making Pennywise nearly a foot and a half taller.Yep, we’ve gathered all the BEST fun AND educational resources for kids into one place.
