Plot Overview



The Miniseries

  • While it originally aired as two halves, the DVD and BluRay versions have edited it into a film format with only one opening and closing sequence. This edit also cuts out the final shot of part one with the "to be continued..." card over Pennywise's laugh, as well as a scene of Bill arriving at the inn before leaving for the cemetery where this version picks up at. The original, unedited version is relegated to the VHS and laserdisc releases.
