Stephen King's IT Sequel Moves Forward at New Line

Stephen King's It movie Review & Rating: Terrifcly Scary Movie

The film is said to be one of the best modern adaptations of his books, and is certainly something you don't want to miss.

With Pennywise making a terrifying return in the new adaptation of Stephen King's IT, one United States police department is ready for an influx of clowns.

From the moment we first see Pennywise's eyes pierce the darkness from the bowels of a Derry sewer drain, actor Bill Skarsgard's masterful portrayal of the dancing clown sets the stage for the terror that lies beneath the surface. The adaptation follows a group of children in Derry, Maine, who battle a otherworldly monster that takes on the guise of a clown. These kids are all outsiders in their home town for one reason or another, and end up having to rely on each other when Pennywise starts preying on the town's children. Not only is It a highly entertaining horror movie, it's also the rare movie that makes you crave for a sequel. When he speaks his voice is hilariously terrifying. Muschietti's adaptation is also being split into two parts, with the first film running 135 minutes. While these jokes might fly over the heads of younger members of the audience, there are enough generic jokes between the boys to keep everyone laughing.

Today's moviegoers may be more nostalgic for the 1980s than the 1950s, Grahame-Smith said. IT movie features Bill Skarsgard playing the Pennywise along with the bunch of children.

"It", the book and mini-series that made a whole generation scared of clowns is starting to scare millennials and forty-somethings alike. While Skarsgård does a fantastic job with his surprising terror and vocal tone, there were moments where he nearly spoke too fast and became hard to understand. Some of the effects of the movie are cheapened by unrealistic special effects.

Finn Wolfhard, hot off his successful appearance in last year's "Stranger Things", gives an excellent performance as "Trashmouth" Richie.

After the movie is over, there is laughter from Pennywise the Clown heard. The germaphobe, Eddie (Jake Dylan Grazer), is chased by a leper, and Mike (Chosen Jacobs) sees visions of his parents who died in a fire. "We'll do a final exam and I will say everything there is to say that I know about monsters and fear and how childhood is the flawless growth medium for terrifying things - everything from Hansel and Gretel to the Werewolf of London - and I'll put it all in one book and that will be it, that will be done and I can move on and do whatever other things that I've got to do", King said by phone from his home in Maine. His stutter was impeccable, and his emotion behind losing his brother was truly heartbreaking.

The new film from the mind of Stephen King is coming out at just the right time. However, the makeup and the slight rasp he adds to his voice makes it much more menacing and evil than your average clown.
