Patrick Hockstetter is a member of Henry Bowers' gang in the 2017 horror film, It.




In the book Patrick is a physcopath who murders his baby brother and animals for fun. He took sexual enjoyment for his actions and believed himself to be the only real person in the universe. Despite his low grades in behavior, in reality, He was very intelligent and was also implied to be bi having a tendency to fondle girls while also jerking. He ray off and offering him oral sex.

In the film his physcopathic and murderous tendencies are toned down with his worst act being shooting a flamethrower over Ben with more intention to scare him than actually burn him and while he did enjoy Henry cutting Ben and licks his lips when Richie walked by him in school, he is not shown to be bi nor get sexually aroused seeing others in pain.

It: Chapter Two

Patrick makes a cameo appearance in the second film as a corpse-like version of himself to help the older Henry escape from Juniper Hill State Correctional Facility in Belch's old Trans-Am car, and then becomes Henry's driver, right up until his death at the hands of Richie.

Differences from the source material



He is not shown interacting with Belch much but Patrick does tell him where to go look for Ben and Belch he is the only member of the gang to be concerned about .Patrick after his disapperance shown by him mentioning Patrick to Henry in a deleted scene.


They are not shown directly interacting but Henry dismisses any concern about Patrick's disappearance in a deleted scene saying he doesn't care, but he likely said that out of anger from being beaten by his father than his actual feelings.
