IT Chapter 3: Plot
The plot or story of IT revolves around an ancient monster (you may also call it a ‘shapeshifter’) that takes on different forms in order to prey on children. The monster comes back after every 27 years. IT talks about a group of seven extremely bullied friends from Derry, Maine who must face their fears and fight off the monster to protect the children of their town from Pennywise.
During the course of both the films, we can see Pennywise, the shape-shifting monster, to often appear in the form of a bloodthirsty clown. Children, being naturally attracted to funny and colorful clowns get easily lured by Pennywise just face their death.
The original novel by Stephen King describes Pennywise as an alien and a male. But, the films portray him as a demon who has got supernatural powers. These powers enable him to make people believe that he is just a figment of their imagination.
