Richie References A Line In John Carpenter’s The Thing
When IT Chapter 2 takes the Losers’ Club again to the Neibolt home within the second act of the film, Bill Hader’s Richie, James McAvoy’s Bill and James Ransone’s Eddie get locked right into a room with a fridge that begins to bang. When it opens, out comes the severed head of their late friend Stanley, who transforms right into a disgusting spider creature. Richie says the road “you gotta be fucking kidding,” which is the precise line stated in 1982’s The Thing when the same spider head creature seems. The unique Losers’ Club within the novel have been petrified of film monsters from the ‘50s that took form in IT’s gross illusions, however the movie’s model has them rising up within the ‘80s, so it’s good that this Thing reference makes its manner in.
