This Scene Had To Be Cut Because It Was Too Disturbing For The 2017 ‘IT’ Remake

Even more disturbing than killer clowns.

The remake of the famous killer clown movie ‘IT’ has been much anticipated and is tipped to be the scariest movie of 2017. It’s out in October, in case you were wondering.

Even though the content matter is disturbing in its own right (a bunch of kids fighting of a killer clown is not exactly light watching), there’s one scene from Stephen King’s famous novel that is even too fucked up for Andres Muschietti’s 18-rated movie.

Now before I launch into its description, let me just warn you that there are going to be some book spoilers. So if you haven’t read the novel and you’re planning to, maybe skip this article and find out for yourself (like you’re going to do that though).

Right, so, the scene in question describes an orgy between the child characters in the sewers. Yes, apparently the only way to overcome being lost in the sewers is to have six 11-year-old boys have sex with an 11-year-old girl, by her invitation. The girl, Beverly, decides that after fighting a killer clown in combat, the group needs “bringing back together” and the only way to do that is for them to all lose their virginity in a mass orgy.

As you can imagine, trying to get away with translating a kiddy orgy on screen would be attempting the impossible and quite frankly, no one wants to see that. So there you have it – the one scene that was deemed too messed up for the ‘IT’ remake and it doesn’t even involve Pennywise the clown.

For more of the same, Charlie Brooker had to cut this scene from ‘Black Mirror’ because it was too disturbing to include.
