While we found out IT Chapter Two almost had a cameo from legendary horror director Guillermo Del Toro, it did feature an incredible cameo from another legend of horror.

The author of the original IT novel, Stephen King, makes a small appearance in the film.

Fair warning to our readers, minor spoilers are ahead so if you haven’t seen the film read on at your own risk!

Partway through the flick, the adult Losers Club explore their hometown of Derry on their own. This leads Bill (James McAvoy) to an antique shop where he is reunited with his trusty old friend, his bicycle “Silver.”

Bill feels compelled to buy the bike back, but he haggles with the owner of the shop about the price. The owner of the shop though is none other than King himself!

The scene is a bit tongue-in-cheek about King’s career as a writer, with him being aware of who Bill is since becoming a famous author. King even has a copy of one of Bill’s books on his store counter which the fictional character offers to sign.

King declines the offer, simply telling him that he didn’t want it signed because he didn’t like the ending.

While King didn’t like the ending to the fake book, some critics in real life haven’t been enjoying the ending to the film series.

Some critics who have already seen the movie are officially allowed to tweet about it and boy have they. There were quite a lot of mixed reactions, with some people loving the film while others were calling it a “disappointment”. See what they had to say below.
