Lets talk about IT baby. IT, the movie featuring a group of kids known as the losers club and a clown known as Pennywise the dancing clown.
Before going any further I have to clear up one thing, this theory isn’t about Pennywise’s origin. That’s already been explained, he’s an interdimensional being who’s arch nemesis is the turtle
Yeah, like that.
I want to discuss Pennywise’s red balloon and its significance. Throughout the novel, movie and miniseries, the appearance of a red balloon is a way of foreshadowing that Pennywise is out to get you or he wants you to do something. So why red? Why not orange or purple or white? Well its because of what red symbolizes.
Red is the color of passion. Since Pennywise main means of luring his victims into a trap is by scaring them or making them hallucinate, then showing them a red balloon to get their adrenalin pumping is an easy way to make them more susceptible to his mind games.
I will deter from giving my usual hundreds of examples because the movie gives us 100’s of examples. In every scene that there is a red balloon, there is always a hallucination or an act of passion. Pennywise knows this and he uses it to his advantage.
Ch ch ch ch ah ah ah ah. A sound so famous & unique that it instantly triggers the image of the almost unkillable hockey mask wearing serial killer, Jason Voorhees.
2nd craziest bastard to wear a hockey mask
Now before I go any further I want to make it that this theory only applies t0 Friday the 13th movies 2 to 4. Everything from 6 and up Jason becomes a supernatural ghoul who literally goes the furthest reaches of hell to the furthest reaches of space.
Michael Myers has congenital insensitivity to pain.. It is because of this abnormality as to why he can take so much damage (bullets , beatings etc) and still keep trucking on and bust through doors like the Kool-Aid man but instead of giving you a refreshing drink, he gives you a cold taste of death.
This would also explain his inhuman like strength. Now why in Gods name a mental institution decided that letting the homicidal maniac go to the gym and buff up was a good idea is beyond me. What I can say is that without feeling any pain, Michael is able to exerts himself beyond that of normal people. There is no pain indicator that to tell him he is going rip something. The term “No pain , no gain” does not apply to him because he doesn’t feel pain so to him it’s all gains.
