    Yesterday, IT director Andres Muschietti unveiled the first look at the soundtrack for the highly anticipated film adaptation of Stephen King’s horror classic coming in September via a short Instagram video. The first glimpse of the IT movie’s soundtrack is exciting in itself given the huge amount of people who can’t wait for the film’s debut, but a closer analysis of the eight-second clip of a live orchestra scoring a song actually reveals a few things about the movie itself.

    The clip is accompanied by the caption “RUN HAYSTACK!!!” Those who have read Stephen King’s IT will know that “Haystack” is a nickname the members of the Losers’ Club (the name given to the main septet of protagonists) give to Ben Hanscom, one of the members of said group who struggles with a weight problem. That means that the quick-tempo score being played by the orchestra in the clip is dubbed over a chase of some sort, an idea that coalesces with the quickly panning footage visible in the monitor at the upper-right of the screen for the first second or two of the video.

    Several people in the Instagram post’s comments section propose ideas of when the Ben Hanscom chase being scored might take place. Some say it might be the chase with Henry Bowers that ends with Ben meeting several other members of the Losers’ Club in The Barrens. Some theorize it might be after Ben’s encounter with the titular creature in its mummy form. Some say that it may be Ben running from Pennywise the clown.

    The final answer, though, comes from Reddit user Bobb_Gray, a member of the dedicated Stephen King subreddit who has established himself as the community’s resident expert on production details for the IT movie. Gray notes that he is a member of a fan group for the movie that also contains several people who went to one of the two public test screenings for IT. Those members tell him that the score comes from a scene where Ben is chased through the Derry Public Library by a headless child who was decapitated by the 1906 explosion of the Kitchener Ironworks. This may explain the text that can be seen on the screen during the video, which looks like it may be part of the word “Easter.” The Kitchener Ironworks accident occurred during an Easter egg hunt.

    A common concern among Stephen King fans who hope the movie will increase the author’s public image is that they might see the movie and think it is a ripoff of the recent smash hit Netflix original show Stranger Things. After all, they are both to be set in small town America in the 1980s and both follow a group of children fighting a monster who use their bicycles as their main form of transport. In fact, reports Movie Pilot, IT was the biggest influence behind Stranger Things.

    This short clip shows that, in terms of its musical score at least, the IT movie will be able to differentiate itself from StrangerThings. While the score for the Netflix show relied heavily on low-key ’80s synth tunes that sound like they were lifted out of an actual 1980s horror film, the song fans will hear during Ben Hanscom’s chase scene is decidedly more thrilling in the traditional cinematic sense. Those commenting on Muschietti’s Instagram post call it “classical,” “epic,” and “apocalyptic.”

    As mentioned above, there is a huge contingent of pop culture beyond excited for the IT movie’s September 8 debut, and the music only amps up that excitement even more. In short, people are unanimous in loving what they hear in the clip.

    “This sounds epic! Great job!,” writes Instagram user Stesta621.

    “The music sounds great and this alone almost gave me a happiness heart attack and I don’t know how to control myself!” adds Matthew Cody Lang.

    Perfect. Very glad It didn't go into PG-13 land.

    Me too. I was really worried they were going to push for PG13 to get more of an audience. Glad they're going with R. That gives me a lot more hope that it will be a very dark and brutal movie.

    I never once thought that it would be less than R. They stated that eons ago... they were going for that in mind.

    New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. latest adaptation of Stephen King‘s IT is on the way this fall but it will be boasting a major change.

    Earlier this week we told you that the film had received an “R”-rating by the MPAA for “violence/horror, bloody images, and for language.” Notice there’s no mention of sexual situations. This is important for one reason, and it goes back to King’s original source material.

    “In King’s novel, The Losers Club find themselves arguing in the sewers below Derry after the defeat of Pennywise,” MovieWeb notes. “While the pre-teens are lost, the character Beverly suggests that they all have sex, losing their virginity together. The scene goes on for pages while King describes what’s going on in rather graphic detail. But it’s not as sinister and weird as one may think as King tells the story in a loving way, not in a malicious or disgusting manner. King uses the act as a way to bridge the two time periods together that readers jump back in forth between.”

    King has spoken about the subject before:

    “I wasn’t really thinking of the sexual aspect of it. The book dealt with childhood and adulthood, 1958 and Grown Ups. The grown ups don’t remember their childhood. None of us remember what we did as children, we think we do, but we don’t remember it as it really happened.”

    King went on to explain that the act was meant to connect childhood to adulthood:

    “Intuitively, the Losers knew they had to be together again. The sexual act connected childhood and adulthood. It’s another version of the glass tunnel that connects the children’s library and the adult library. Times have changed since I wrote that scene and there is now more sensitivity to those issues.”

    Digressing, the Andrés Muschietti-directed IT hits theaters on September 8, 2017, and if the aforementioned MPAA rating is any indication of what to expect, we will not be seeing the controversial sex scene in this film. What’s interesting, however, is that Cary Fukunaga’s original script, which Muschietti was working off of, was even worse.

    ScreenGeek did some digging and shares the shocking scenes removed from Fukunaga’s adaptation when Muschietti eventually took over directing duties, including a scene in which eleven-year-old Beverly Marsh is raped by her father.

    Parents on a casting forum for child actors voiced their displeasure for the film’s script. One parent stated:

    “I don’t remember it being anything more than suggested in the original either. But it goes farther than that in this script. Much farther in a couple scenes, the father kissing her bare stomach, hands up her skirt to slip off panties, in addition she describes being gang raped to another character. Add it all up and it’s just to much for us. We were so excited when we got it, but there was a pretty heafty email from agent to read script and approve before agreeing due to content.”

    Another parent said:

    “This is just gross. And I’m not talking about the content… I’m talking about directors/producers who want to hire underage actresses to make out with creepy old men.”

    As the site also notes, there was also reportedly one scene in the original script in which the bully character Henry Bowers raped a Hanlon sheep and masturbated onto a birthday cake.

    Another scene that was taken out of the early draft featured Stan Uris, one of the child protagonists, using a woman’s restroom at his Jewish temple and encountering a rotting naked woman. The woman tries to tempt Stan, going as far as touching herself in front of him.

    The site alleges that the studio wanted Fukunaga to edit these scenes out, and he refused, which could have led to some of the creative differences that caused his exit.

    Without the sex scene it will be interesting (not really) to see how Muschietti bridges his two films that connect the children’s battle with Pennywise to them having to reunite as adults in the sequel.

    Those of you who have ready King’s story, what do you think about all of this?

    Calling BS. The original script which is online didn't have the 'orgy' or anything with fucking a sheep or a cake. I imagine if it did it would have been more widely reported than a twitter comment.

    The script online is an early draft. Later ones started to have weirder stuff, like this scene between Al Marsh and Pennywise:



    The sheep and cake stuff was allegedly in a late Fukunaga draft, which hasn't made it online, but the information was dropped by someone very high up in the production. It's been talked about a lot within It movie circles for the past year. It will be interesting if it does eventually leak.

    I'm aware of that page (Alvin molesting Bev and actually being in league with Pennywise is one of the worst and most baffling ideas I've read) but stuff about fucking cake and sheep are mainly sourced from a Reddit thread.
