It, also known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, The Deadlights and Robert Gray, is the evil entity that has plagued Derry for over a million years. Throughout the novel, It by Stephen King, we receive a trickle of information regarding the history of It, from It's inception millions of years ago in an interdimensional void known as The Macroverse, to It's arrival in Derry before the Ice Age to It's ultimate battle against the Losers Club and beyond.
In this video I'll be going over the ENTIRE (!) chronological life of Pennywise / It, doing a complete breakdown and analysis of the character, discussing what drives It, what rules bind It, and explaining the events seen in the book that never made the movie or mini-series adaptations.
This will cover the entire known history of Pennywise from the creation of It to the present. Please note that this will only analyse the ancient creature as It is are written in the books of Stephen King. I will show clips from the movies as a visual aid, but for the purposes of Horror History, the books are canon!
I'll be covering every single detail we know about It from the book including It's origin, the mythology of It, the inspiration behind Pennywise, It explained + how it operates, discussing the different forms of It with the shapeshifting ability, and even talking about a few Things You Missed in this comprehensive breakdown and analysis of the character.

--About IT Chapter Two--
Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club-young and adult-in a return to where it all began with “It Chapter Two.”
The film is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “IT,” which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, “IT” became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” brings the characters-who’ve long since gone their separate ways-back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.

  • You did spend a solid amount of time on this making it very informative, however I just heard you say the word again (was gonna say “heard you say it again but for clarity purposes I went w “the word”). Thought I heard you say the word earlier but didn’t actually rewind, but now at 36:32 I’ve stopped to explain why I won’t pass this along. Tim Curry is a man, Bill Skarsgård is a male, even the black & white photo w the original Pennywise MAN standing w HIS daughter whom turns out to be the old lady Mrs Marsh, IS A MAN! So when referring to IT why are you saying “she”?!???? Are women just inherently evil in your eyes?

  • The universe of IT is actually bigger than this novel alone. I'm an avid reader of his work and the name Gray comes up in more than one work. Even if you're not a reader, watch Dreamcatcher. The bad entity is known simply as Mr. Gray. I'm only like a minute and a half into your video and don't know if you cover this, but thought I would add it anyhow.
