    How well does the sequel to 2017's It adapt Stephen King's classic novel while tying up all the loose ends from the first installment? Let's roll up our sleeves, wade into the sewers and dig into the details of how the saga ends. This is the ending of It: Chapter Two explained.
    And before you open the door labeled "very scary," be warned: Spoilers await you.
    Stephen King's novel It isn't just the story of a creepy clown terrorizing some kids and then returning to do it all over again when they're adults. There's a whole cosmology to the saga, which includes a giant, godlike turtle that coughed up the known universe when it had a tummy ache. Aside from a few subtle nods here and there, the movies mostly sidestep the ancient, interdimensional mythology of the book, but one element does show up in It: Chapter Two - the true form of It.
    When he goes to visit the Shokopiwah tribe and takes one of their vision-granting concoctions, Mike learns that It came to Earth in a meteor strike that left a crater in Derry, and is made up of "Deadlights," mostly orange but sometimes-blue spheres of light of immense power. Though the lights can be seen in brief moments in the first film, It appears entirely as deadlights as Chapter Two reaches its climax, and even after taking on other forms, the deadlights are still visibly powering the creature, becoming increasingly weaker as the Losers literally bring It down to size.
    It's true form is revealed because the Losers perform the Ritual of Chüd, a ceremony that differs pretty wildly in the movie from the way it works in the book. The movie's take on the ritual involves each member of the club burning a "token" of his or her childhood and reciting a chant to make the Deadlights turn dark, then trapping the Deadlights inside a pyramid-shaped relic Mike stole.
    The ritual is the key to defeating It in the book, though it takes two tries 27 years apart. But the Losers' attempt essentially fails in the movie, at least at first. That's because it's revealed Mike lied to everyone in an attempt to simply bring them all back together. The ritual wasn't successful before when the Native Americans tried to do it, and it doesn't kill It when the Losers try it this time, either. At least, not until they've gone through the wringer just a little bit more so they can truly overcome the fears that feed It. Keep watching the video to see the ending of It: Chapter Two explained!

    It was better than the original It. There were nods to other movies, like the ghoul driving the psycho around reminded me of An American Werewolf in London best friend visiting his pal! The Thing, not the 1st or 3rd, but the second with the morphed ‘spider-head’ skittering around.

    The ritual chant was a hardcore contradiction. Why would you want to turn light into darkness? Where beings like IT dwell. Satanic dumbasses ruining legendary movies.

    Ending is weak. Stupid way of killing “IT”, at least Chapter 1 the kids actually killed it with pure violence, this just seemed weak.

    The movie was ok not as good as the first one of course, I think I would’ve liked an IT origins movie instead I’m more interested in where IT came from and how he got to this point, the old lady says her father joined the circus revealing he was pennywise the clown, I would like to see that instead

    It was more funny/comedy and depressingly sad, than scary , because characters we cared about randomly died ,and the thing that really bugs me ,is that Beverly and Bill were supposed to be starcrossed lovers, what the hell happened towards the end ,really disappointed to be honest

    Now that I think about it, when Pennywise shrunk like that ,it reminded me cute little Envy ,from Fullmetal Alchemist ,but Envy just pulled out its own Philosopher Stone ,I felt a little sorry for both of them to be honest , because Pennywise said "look at all of you, you all have grown up.."
