I do not know what I am going to call this yet, but one of my problems with the newer movie is that was way to intense while if it were more subtle like the older version, it would fix that problem. Also I would cut some tonally out pf place scenes like the rock war and cleaning up the blood. If you have any other suggestions for this fan edit and a possible title, please reply.

No, this doesn’t need a Fan Edit at all. Make an Extended Edition instead since the book is terrifying and intense.
The rock war and cleaning up the blood are in the book, but mildly different, which isn’t out of place at all. The most major suggestion is to read the book or listen to the audio version, unabridged. Yes, it’s supposed to be way too intense since the major characters are kids in this half of the adaptation.
The TV mini-series from 1990 omitted many things from the book since it was halved from the intended four episodes down to two. Yes, I would add more, as long as it isn’t redundant or conflict with the source material.
If anything, when both IT: Chapter One and IT: Chapter Two are released onto BD with a ton of deleted scenes and the longer cuts, make a version where it combines both movies to be more similar to the book in format. Of course on separate BD50s.
IT: Chapter One is one of the best Stephen King adaptations out there. This is literally a waste of time for a Fan Edit since it doesn’t need one and I’m certainly not interested.

Well I have read the book, Stephen king is one of my favorite writers. I did like the movie and thought it was really faithful, but the book was crazy scary, I can agree with you on that. What I can say is that the new movie is it’s not crazy scary. When something “scary” is happening it is too over the top and just comes off as just a cheap jumpcare. What I mean by over the top is in the in the new movie, Pennywise opens his mouth eats Georgie’s arm off. Georgie manages to get away with blood everywhere but not before pennywise can drag him back into the sewer. On the other hand the older movie is more subtler and because of this those moment stuck with me a lot more and are and in someways are scarier than the newer version of the movie.

As for scenes that are TONALLY out of place scenes like the rock war and cleaning up blood, I was just thinking make them the same tone as the movie is at that time. Beverly is showing the other Loser Club members the blood in her bathroom, it’s pretty serious and actually disurbing, then all the sudden the tone shifts as a fun 80s song plays and it is just jarring to me. Same goes for the rock war.
