IT MOVIE REVIEW

IT MOVIE REVIEW - When a younger brother disappears, a group of friends known as ‘The Loser’s Club’ begins to investigate a series of unusual events, in the fictional town of Derry. Each of them experiences a haunting vision capitalizing on their greatest fears. It’s only then they come to realize the embodiment of IT takes the shape of Pennywise, an old time clown from Derry’s past. This is one of the few Stephen King books I haven’t read. I watched the 2017 version on opening weekend and saw the 1990 mini-series previously. I always say there’s no reason to remake a classic horror movie if there isn’t an improvement on the original. While IT 2017 isn’t perfect, I appreciated many things about this film. The cast of ‘losers’ demonstrated such deep emotion that I’m sure all of them are destined for stardom. And I liked (for the most part) the dazzling tricks and jump scares coupled with the new Pennywise’s acting. If anything, the movie would be stronger with fewer CGI effects.

  1. Sounds like an interesting movie. What is Pennywise though? I don't know since I haven't seen the movie.

  3. I live in a small town, so I hadn't heard much about this vide. So cool that it is based off of a book! I'm not one for horror films, but I am glad you enjoyed it!

  4. Gah! I didn't even know I was scared of clowns until I saw a trailer for this film. Freakworthy! I can't imagine how someone conveys the horror and tension in a book.

  7. I've read the book and seen the miniseries. I haven't seen this one yet but I hope to. So much scarier at the movies than at home on DVD.

  8. Clowns can definitely be creepy, but I like them anyway. Great review.
