It took 27 years for the protagonists to forget their childhood shadow. They were spoiled without watching the positive film. How long does it take you to forget the following words? Of course, people who dare not watch horror movies and can’t control their curiosity are welcome to use this thing to understand the plot.


The opening picture is seamlessly connected with the previous work, and the young protagonists are united by blood. Then it turned to the small town of Delhi 27 years later. A pair of same-sex partners in the playground were provoked by small gangsters, and then escalated into physical conflict. The number of non dominant couples were severely beaten, and one of them was thrown into the river. But instead of drowning, he was bitten to death by a clown who suddenly appeared. This section paves the bad soil atmosphere of Delhi town and is also the first appearance of the clown, the core character of the story.

The positive role should establish the audience’s sense of identity through “saving the cat”. Similarly, the villain should make the audience have enough disgust and fear through “abusing the cat”. It’s best to abuse a “cat” who saved the cat. Adrian, the first victim, is played by Doran, a talented young film artist who is omnipotent in editing, directing and acting. Adrian gave the prize from the target game (the bull’s-eye is the mouth of a doll. If you succeed, you can score. It’s very funny) to the little girl with a birthmark on her face. This is his moment to save the cat. However, such a character with the aura of the protagonist is an out and out dragon suit, and everyone in his story (except the clown) is no longer involved in the main plot.

Mike, a member of the loser club at that time, was the only one in Delhi in the group of seven. He had been engaged in research on clowns. When he learned that there were new victims, he immediately contacted his partners who had already gone their separate ways. Bill became a writer and screenwriter, no longer stuttering. The biggest problem is that his book is always make complaints about the mess, but I think it will be bad for X police: black phoenix. Eddie became a risk assessment expert for the insurance company and found a wife who looked like his mother; Beverly married a husband with a lot of money but the same distorted character as her father; Ricky, full of coquettish words, became a talk show actor; The biggest change is little fat Ben. He is now a successful type man. When holding a video conference to discuss architectural style, he can strongly convince his employees with sentences like “I don’t want you to think, I want me to think” at any time. On the surface, each of them is a successful person, but in fact, we can feel that their respective living conditions are not satisfactory, and the personality weaknesses overcome when they were young return to them. At this time, Mike’s call became a catalyst for them to change their lives and break the situation of “stillness = death”.

However, change does not happen so soon, and the inertia of maintaining the status quo will continue for some time. Several partners gathered together, and they returned to their hometown Delhi with a simple mentality similar to attending the classmate meeting. Choosing a Chinese restaurant as the meeting place is very appropriate. A group of middle-aged people come together to drink, chat and boast. The picture naturally fits very well with the private rooms and round tables in the Chinese restaurant. Unfortunately, the hygiene of this Chinese restaurant is not up to standard. Insects run all over the table half way through the meal. The reason for this problem may be that the preservation conditions of the ingredients in this Chinese restaurant are not ideal and the refrigerator is not enough. They need a bold boss to help them make up their mind to buy a refrigerator.

I can’t stand the image of face + insect. I go crazy every time I see it. However, this film likes to use similar images to create startling effects. In addition to the insects with baby faces crying and crawling in the first act, the rotten heads with insect legs crawling around in the third act are also very interesting. This serious and down-to-earth behavior of frightening and disgusting the audience completely conquered me, which is also the most important reason why I gave this film five stars.

Like me, the protagonists who were frightened out of control almost demolished the private room of the hotel. When they recovered, they found that everything was an illusion. When he went out, Ricky met enthusiastic little fans to say hello. He was regarded as a continuation of his illusion and scolded. As a result, the little fan who happened to meet his idol was fortunately reduced to a small powder stripping back to the scene.

At the door of the hotel, six people learned from the phone that Stanley, the only absent, had committed suicide. Except Mike, the other five people began to recover their young adventure memories sealed because they left Delhi, but most of them refused to recall the events of that year and hoped to leave as soon as possible. Bill is the only one willing to stay and find out with Mike. At this time, the story advances to the stage of “dispute and debate” in the first act. The protagonists are struggling whether to continue to go deep into the inverted world with clowns.

Bill visited Mike’s collection of magic tools and saw a magical illusion under his guidance. The way to guide is to give him medicine. The more I look at the role of Mike, the more I feel that it is written by referring to the fat man in the hangover. He has been secretly rubbing his friends, which is more difficult to prevent than a clown. As an aside, the director of “hangover” also made a clown film. It is said that it has been highly praised recently. We will put the discussion on that film in a month.

The group of six reunited to exchange information about the clown incident and concluded that if the clown was not solved, they would all die. So, willingly or reluctantly, they joined in the fight against clowns, and the story entered the second act. The main body of the first half of the second act of the genre film is “entertainment and Games”. This film is both a horror film and a youth film, so the presentation of “entertainment and game” is interspersed with the youth memories of the protagonists.

Bill and others follow Mike’s instructions to find their own magic tools filled with memories of their youth, which is also the process of facing the demons. Bill’s magic weapon was the paper boat his brother played before he died. His heart knot was his guilt towards his brother. In other words, at first I thought the key prop was the bike he picked up from Stephen King’s offline experience store. In this film, a beautiful main funny play is presented through his love for bicycle.

Beverly’s magic weapon is a love poem hidden in her old house. For so many years, she always thought it was written by bill, which makes Ben, as an original author, feel the hardships of safeguarding his rights. Beverly’s heart knot is her father’s distorted possessiveness. When several small partners acted separately, Beverly experienced the most sense of design. However, the dark, strange and funny naked old lady secretly observed the bridge, which seemed to collide with last year’s horror film “genetic doom”.

Ben’s magic weapon is the school yearbook signed by the other party when he first met Beverly. His heart knot is that when he was young, he felt inferior because of his appearance and dared not fight for Beverly’s love; Eddie’s magic weapon is asthma aerosol can inhaler, and his heart knot is a cowardly character who tends to avoid retreat because he cares too much about risk; Ricky’s part is the least scary, but the most informative. Ricky, who is completely responsible for the active atmosphere and looks a little heartless in his previous work, is actually the most complicated person among all the protagonists. His magic weapon is game currency, and his heart knot is that he has hidden a huge secret from the world. Ricky’s passage reminds me of the first episode of the latest season of the black mirror, the one with the Falcon. The two stories together illustrate a truth: Fighting Games are easy to bend people.

At the midpoint of the film, as the partners returned to their homes one after another, the entertainment and game parts ended and began to enter the “villain approaching” link in the second behind the scenes half. In fact, the clown is not far from everyone from the beginning. After all, he is the real core role of the story. Therefore, in order to reflect the rhythm division of the plot, the screenwriter arranged another villain role to implement the specific “villain approaching” action. Powell, the bad boy in the last film, was regarded as the real murderer of the serial abduction and murder of children in a small town. He lived in a mental hospital for 27 years. With the return of the clown, he was summoned again to continue to fight against the loser club.

While Eddie was struggling with Powell, bill and Beverly kissed downstairs. It’s not that they don’t talk about loyalty, but the routine of genre films – this plot is sometimes called “the 60th minute romance”. “60 minutes” is not a precise time. Usually, the plot of kissing, affectionate hugging and sweet confession will take place between the midpoint and two-thirds of a film. The protagonist feels that he has reached the peak of his life and is about to get a loud slap in the face from the screenwriter.

Bill and Beverly were kissing when suddenly a skateboard fell down the stairs. It belongs to the little boy who took off the powder after being sprayed angrily by Ricky in the restaurant. The little boy lived in Bill’s old house. Bill once advised him to leave Delhi town quickly. Obviously, the little boy didn’t take his words seriously. Bill chased the little boy all the way to the playground, but he could only watch him be eaten by the clown. At this time, the protagonist bill realized the feeling of “losing everything” and entered the “night of the soul”.

The B story of the film is the friendship of several protagonists. Ricky, who wanted to escape the most, passed by Stanley’s church where he gave a speech at the bar mitzvah. He recalled his high spirited childhood again, so he turned back to meet his friends and solved Powell, who nearly killed Mike. The members of the loser Club encouraged each other and entered the well building, the clown’s base, and the story began in the third act.

In the final part of the third act, the protagonists have to go through five stages to complete the “storm raiding the castle” so that the event can be solved perfectly. The first is to gather partners and necessary tools. This preparation is done before the party enters the door. Then the plan was carried out. The people burned the magic tools they had taken back together, held a ceremony, recited incantations, and prepared to destroy the clown – so that bike can’t be a magic tool. It’s too hard to move it to an underground cave and burn it. What kind of bike is needed at this solemn moment. The third step was the “tower accident”, and the plan was blocked. Because Mike didn’t disclose all the truth about the ceremony to his partners at the beginning, the ceremony failed, the clown’s strength increased instead of decreased, and the trust between his partners was on the verge of collapse; The fourth step is to dig deep again. The protagonists who run for their lives and are calculated to be broken by the clown will completely defeat the demons and mobilize their final strength at this time: Bill has stepped out of the shadow of his brother’s death and will no longer criticize himself too much; Beverly and Ben poured out their love deeply buried in their hearts for many years and bravely extended their hands to each other; Eddie defeated cowardice and stabbed the clown with a spear to carry out his faith; Only Ricky seems to have no change. He is always responsible for making fun. The popular “medium Cup”, “large cup” and “Super Cup” in his previous works… Sorry, it should be the strong return of the triple gate of “not scary”, “scary” and “very scary”, with the performance of bill harder and the natural temperament of Wang Xingren’s cub that completely deviates from the horror film, Constitute the biggest laugh point of the whole film. The last step is the implementation of the new plan. The protagonists who overcome the demons are no longer afraid of the clown. They take turns to come up with a mouthful of garbage and spray him alive.

After eliminating the clown, the partners returned to their lives. The story ends in Stanley’s last letter. The final picture is the once childish faces of seven little friends, who return to the beginning of the story. The middle-aged loser club members look bright on the surface, but they are still dominated by the shadow of childhood. They once chose to escape and forget, thinking that they could maintain the confidence of “natural winners” as long as they didn’t think of their “loser history”. However, only when we face the fear of the past, overcome it and accept our identity as a “loser”, can we really hold the “success” in our hands.

Ricky didn’t come out until the end of the film. His real ending should be: he joined Saturday night live with excellent comedy talent, gave himself a stage name Shi Xiaofang, and later married his colleague Sai Jinhua, who is responsible for broadcasting the weekly news.

In fact, combined with Ricky’s mourning for Eddie after the decisive battle and recalling his previous performance, we will find that he has also achieved a breakthrough in himself. The way he showed this breakthrough was to stay with Eddie until the last moment of Eddie’s life. Although he didn’t say love, his behavior was the same as Ben and Beverly. The people who have been taking advantage of you and want you to call you dad may bury a feeling in the bottom of their heart. So I now believe that Guo Degang is a true love to Mr. Yu Qian.

The length of the whole film is nearly three hours, which makes me not feel tired at all. This is mainly due to the appropriate combination of laugh points and scare points. Although most of this article is devoted to the analysis of the plot, in my opinion, the plot is divided into sub items. The biggest problem is the slightly lengthy third act – it is certainly appropriate to be the carrier of visual wonders, but the whole promotion process is lack of surprises for the audience who have seen the previous work. In the last film, a group of children killed the clown with a round of mouth cannon. Although it was a little secondary 2, it was tolerable because the secondary 2 complemented the young feeling of the little actors; This time, a group of adults had the same round of mouth gun, which was very embarrassing. Ricky threw a stone at the clown, which made me a little excited. Unfortunately, he vented his anger and became a funny tool before his mood was fully mobilized. In fact, the stone war is an ideal way to end the clown – it not only relates the classic plot of the previous work and reminds the audience of the memory, but also avoids such embarrassing repetition through the movement of type elements.

In addition, there are some meaningless bedding in this film. For example, the hero’s wife has nothing to do with the main plot. If it is only revealed, there will be no following. It’s better to delete it directly. There is also a little girl with a birthmark on her face. She appeared in two plays, which made me mistakenly think that she would be the key figure protected by the protagonists. As a result, the clown said to eat. The director should simply think that the little actor is too cute, so he gave her more shots. Like the little girl, those little gangsters who appeared at the beginning of the story thought they would replace Powell in the previous film, but they were forcibly crowded out because Powell returned. In fact, Powell’s line is also very arbitrary. He forcibly stuffed him with a basic friend who has become a zombie, but it’s no use. It’s better to free up the trick and give it to the young generation of gangsters, so that they can have the opportunity to be taught by the protagonist.

The character arc of the protagonists in the previous work has been relatively complete. This is to make the story still feasible. A very old-fashioned but effective method is adopted – wash away the character arc established in the previous film through amnesia, so that the protagonists can grow up again. In fact, this method is a little tricky, but fortunately, after 27 years of life experience, the protagonists grow up more thoroughly than before: bill just let go of his brother last time, and this time he further reconciled with himself; Ben and Beverly also have money… Lovers get married.

Finally, the biggest feeling after watching this film is that Zhan Yimei’s play is quite similar to teacher Fan Wei. They are both good at playing the role of riding a bicycle and wheelchair, and are also good at imitating stuttering.
