Movie Bears Podcast

We’re heading back to Derry, Maine tonight to join the Losers for their round two bout with Pennywise the clown, 27 years later (even though it's only been about 2 years, really). We're also bringing along a special guest and friend of the podcast, Sammy W. That’s right, we’re reviewing ‘IT CHAPTER 2’, and if you feel like listening to what we all thought of the conclusion to this horror saga, then you’ll float too!
