This Disturbing Deleted Scene From IT Didn't Make It To The Silver Screen, And For Good Reason

This Disturbing Deleted Scene From IT Didn't Make It To The Silver Screen, And For Good Reason

When I returned from the cinema after watching IT for the first time, I was truly quaking. The thought of a chilling and deadly clown who can bring your deepest and darkest fears to life is far more than unsettling, and I have no desire to enter the sewers - not that I ever really did in the first place!

Apparently, though, the film could have been even worse for viewers...but a scene was deleted for being far too disturbing for the already terrifying story.

If you've seen it recently too, you'll know that some of the scenes get pretty creepy.

If you haven't gone out to your local theatre to see IT yet - I definitely recommend that you do. Although it was frightening, I left the cinema feeling pretty glad I had gone.

Luckily, there is a lot of light-hearted comedy that fills the film - especially from our main man Richie.

Despite the many laughs you will get from the awesome one-liners, there are still so many opportunities for this film - and this clown - to completely give you a spook.

The projector scene was definitely one that had me covering my eyes.

There were more than a few very scary scenes in IT, but apparently, there's a scene that was so shocking that it couldn't even be shown in the film.

Once I learnt what happened in the disturbing scene, I am kind of glad that it wasn't added to the film.

The scene was filmed with the intention to be in the movie, but it didn't quite make it in.

Although rumor is, it could be going ahead in It: Chapter Two.

Chapter two won't be another story with the same characters though, except for Pennywise, as the next film is set in the 1600s and will involve the backstory of our favourite killer clown.

Bill Skarsgaård appears in the deleted scene but is missing his classic Pennywise clown makeup.

Bill said on a podcast: “I’m not the clown. I look more like myself,” 

And also confirmed that this one particular scene was “really, really disturbing.”

The completely disturbing scene hasn't been released to the public, so many fans are trying to come up with their own interpretation of what it may involve.

Many people are believing that the scene would contain inspiration from Cary Fukunaga’s script, who was originally supposed to direct the films but left after realizing that the budget could not conform to his artistic visions for the movie.

One of these scenes from the script included a flashback to the time period of the 1600s.

This is meant to show the actions of Pennywise before he became a clown...which would definitely explain why he wouldn't be wearing any makeup and the scene would contain Bill's bare face!

The scene involves a mother and daughter, face to face with It.

Pennywise starts to charge at the girl, when the mother tries to stop this from happening. Pennywise has all the power though, and grants her two options: She can watch the whole family being killed, or leave her child and save herself. The mother leaves her daughter behind to be demolished by the killer clown. Talk about betrayal!

Apparently, there are more than a few scenes from Fukunaga’s script that would have made the film even worse than it already is...

For one, a lumberjack is entirely killer crazy and slaughters a group of men who are harmlessly playing cards when he walks into a bar.

there is no explanation to this until Pennywise is seen playing piano in the room...and everyone quickly realises that he has been controlling the lumberjack and his deadly actions.

However, in Fukunaga's script, IT was nothing like a clown at all..instead, the true form of IT was meant to be some creature with tentacle-like properties.

But we think that Pennywise is far more enticing as a clown...and is the perfect villain for leading kids down into the sewers. 

Goodluck trying to get a wink of sleep in when Pennywise is busy dancing in your dreams.

With the release of IT being announced, communities were quite fearful in anticipation of how clown lovers would react. Take a look at how police departments warned people that the killer clown craze was about to return.
