IT: Pennywise eye color changes
When a scary looking clown approaches you out of nowhere, of course, you wouldn’t trust him that much, much less when it appears inside a sewer, right? One of the dirty tricks that Pennywise constantly uses to gain children’s trust is to change the color of their eyes. The first time this happened was when the spooky clown met Georgie, and even in his own book Stephen King mentions:
«They were yellow eyes in there, the sort of eyes he had always imagined but never actually seen down in the basement.»
«How, Georgie wondered, could I have thought his eyes were yellow? They were a bright, dancing blue, the color of his mom’s eyes.»
