IT Chapter 2 Premiere and Movie Review

On Monday night, I went to the IT Chapter 2 World Premiere. I'm a huge fan of horror movies so I was so excited to see this highly anticipated movie! 

When I arrived to the venue in Westwood, hundreds of fans were already lined up waiting to see the red carpet arrivals. I met my handler, Kayla, who escorted me to the red carpet. I walked the carpet and had my picture taken at each of the backdrops. They decorated everything so well and incorporated different props from the movie everywhere. The carpet was separated by two different rooms with press and paparazzi. The first was outdoors, and the other was in a tent that I heard people referring to as the "tunnel". The tunnel was much darker with red ambient lighting. 

After I finished with photos, we went inside the theater and were seated. There was popcorn and water waiting in everyone's seat. I sat with my handler, my dad, and a bunch of other people that I had met earlier that night. The director and cast came to the front of the theater and thanked everyone for coming. We also sang happy birthday to the director of the movie! Pretty soon, the lights went off and the movie started playing. 

For someone who hadn't seen the first movie, I was pretty shocked. Without giving away any spoilers, the movie is pretty graphic and the first scene depicts a brutal hate crime. If you're sensitive to extreme violence, I would say to watch a different movie! I like horror movies but it was a lot for me. It was also three hours long. The cast was incredible and you can absolutely tell how much time went into the making of the movie. Overall, a lot of people seemed to really enjoy it but it was a little too much for me.  

When the movie ended, we headed next door to the after party. The party was unbelievable and was decorated like the carnival in the film. There were games, fun houses, tons of food, and even a green screen where they put you into the movie trailer. You can watch mine below! 

By the way, I had to film this trailer in front of everyone which was so embarrassing! 

Overall, I had so much fun and am so grateful that I was invited to the premiere. IT Chapter 2 comes out September 6, in theaters everywhere.
