Pennywise The Dancing Clown from Stephen King’s story IT is arguably one of the most fascinating villains in horror history. Whether it’s his creepy smile, shapeshifting ability or the sinister side that makes him one of the most evil monsters ever put to film, you have to agree that he has a certain allure about him.
Whilst I already covered the character in a breakdown video earlier this year, I thought I’d take the time to revisit the creature with the added context of It Chapter 2 to discuss all of the newly added information that we have about it.
Was Pennywise A Real Person?
Ok, so the first thing that I want to clear up is a question that I’ve seen asked across a lot of my videos and breakdowns. That is ‘did Pennywise used to be a person?’
This theory has gained popularity due to the fact that a lot of the marketing material for IT Chapter Two focused on an old photograph showing what appeared to be Pennywise the dancing clown and his traveling circus.
To get rid of any confusion, this isn’t Pennywise or what we know it to be at least.
Pennywise The Dancing Clown Explained
The creature IT is actually billions of years old and is known as a Glamour. IT originates from another dimension outside of the universe known as the Macroverse that complete dwarfs our own solar system. It’s real name and species is known as the Deadlights but as the Losers Club are unaware of this they simply refer to the creature as IT.
The deadlights are an immortal being that is pure destruction and lives only to feed. Juxtaposing this the Space Turtle from IT lives only two create and the two are polar opposites of one another, bringing balance to the galaxy.
IT refers to itself as the eater of worlds which probably means that it has drifted through the galaxy going planet to planet carrying out the parasitic attacks until the location has been drained of all of its resources.
Whilst most assume that Pennywise is male it’s actually a female and in the story, we discover that the creature is actually pregnant and has also laid several eggs, though it is killed before it can give birth and the lair is destroyed, presumably along with it’s children.
IT is millennia old and landed on the planet in what was seemingly a meteor shower. It found it’s home in what would come to be known as Derry, and it thrived in the area, allowing humans to build a town and settlement around it so that is had a regular food source.
It primarily appeared as a giant eagle among many other things however it had difficulty hunting it’s prey so switched to the more friendly face of Pennywise in order to gain it’s victim’s trust. Native Americans carried out a practice known as the Ritual Of Chud in which they used positive energy to trap The Deadlights. Depending on which version you read or see this either worked or failed on Pennywise but in the most recent incarnation, IT Chapter 2, the spell did not work and Pennywise was able to break out of this.
