TV & FILM

If you're the kind of person who likes your scares to be as big as humanly possible, allow me to suggest that you check out next month's horror blockbuster-to-be IT: Chapter Two in IMAX. Having just seen Apocalypse Now in IMAX yesterday, I can attest to the advantages of seeing films in the biggest and loudest format available. You really can't mentally escape a movie when you see it in IMAX, you just have to sort of sit there and deal with it.
When it comes to movies like this, IMAX really is the only way to fly. Sure it'll be good on any old screen and you'll feel scared and entertained and all of that, but if you really want to get the shit scared out of you, you've gotta go with IMAX. It rattles your senses in a way that a standard projection of a movie just can't, and when it comes to a jump-scare filled horror movie like IT: Chapter Two, you're guaranteed to get your money's worth.
The only thing holding me back from running right out and seeing this—apart from my fear of murderous clowns—is the expansive running time. The film's scheduled run time is 169 minutes, and as someone who just sat through a three-hour movie in IMAX, I can tell you that it's bound to leave you feeling exhausted. Seriously, I didn't even want to drive home yesterday, that's the level of exhaustion we're talking about here.
IT: Chapter Two scares its way into theaters—including IMAX theaters—on September 6.
