Title: IT: The Bookish Edit

About:  really enjoyed both movies as well as the source material. Like many people, I did feel Chapter 2 got a little long. Now most people would cut footage to tighten it up, but I was more curious how the movie(s) would play out as a single long film edited closer to the book. This is the result.

This should not be considered a "purist" cut, My intention wasn't to edit exactly to the book but bring the films more inline with it. A good example is the introduction of the children as adults. In the book it's in a different order, but the way it was edited in the film worked well so I left it alone.

Original Running Time: 304 min (combined)

Fanedit Running Time: 284 min

Time Cut: 24 min

Time Added: 4 min

That is my ultimate hope; I honestly thought Part 1 was tremendous.

I was wondering when someone would tackle putting these two films together.  Part 2's weakness is simply the absence of the inherently more interesting Loser's Club as children, and it would work so much better for the story of their shared trauma to unfold the way it does in the book.  This sounds like a future FEOTM for sure.

I'm actually jealous as I was going to try this project myself after I got through the 40+ hour audiobook version  :dodgy: , but I'm very excited to see this idea come to life.  Best of luck.

Good luck with this. Chapter 2 needs the most trimming, some really cringey performances by the adult actors. For what it's worth I think chapter one is great as a stand-alone. I've seen a decent edit by Maniac, iirc, which omits the sequel bait to make chap 1 more definitive. There are a few things that chap 2 did interestingly but for the most part it lacks the Garmonbozia, so to speak. Chap 1 feels right and oddly more in line with a Junji Ito adaptation than a King adaptation.
