There were a lot of which I had absolutely no clue that he was indeed there, because it was so subtle. But now looking back, these instances just make those certain scenes all the more tense and shows that yes, IT is quite literally everywhere and his hold on Derry is a powerful one. God, I love that movie.
I even got my wife, whom isn't a fan of anything horror or suspense whatsoever, to finally sit down and watch Chapter 1 with me, and she bloody loved it. She's even now tentatively looking forward to Chapter 2.
Ah, I'm still about 400 pages left on my re-read. It's so incredible re-reading it now as an adult; I read it when I was like 15, and now I'm almost 30. It gives you such a completely different perspective and understanding of the core concept. I felt the same way when I re-read Pet Sematary earlier this year.
