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

Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise in the horror thriller

Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise in the horror thriller"It

The story begins in 1988, when little Georgie chases a handmade boat into a sewer, where he sees Pennywise lurking. Like locusts, he benignly rests beneath Derry, Maine for the vast majority of time, emerging only occasionally to feast on the flesh (and fears) of the town's children: once every twenty-seen years, to be exact. Ever since the first IT trailer broke viewing records, anticipation for this film has been sky high - and ITs Thursday night opening has already set records for an R-rated movie.

The R-rated movie is based on King's 1986 novel, which focuses on a group of friends in a fictional ME community that battles the small town's demon as kids. The first movie reportedly cost around $30 million to make.

A few months after his disappearance, Georgie's brother Bill (Jaeden Lieberher-who was outstanding in 2015's "St. Vincent") is wracked with guilt because he's the one who sent Georgie out in the rain alone on that fateful day. Knowing that humor helps sell any horror concept, they have given the kids some playful and amusing dialogue. While Tim Curry's lauded outing as Pennywise in the 1990 miniseries was the catalyst for a thousand nightmares, it relied more on camp humor, and an nearly toy-like performance, leaving some with the feeling that It wasn't scary enough.

STEVEN SPIELBERG - This also seems like a fairy tale, but he and Lucas are close, having worked together on "Indiana Jones". Star Wars: Episode IX is scheduled for release May 24, 2019.

"Yeah, they scared me back at that house, as you saw, right?"

"It's such an extreme character", Skarsgard said in an interview with Vulture.

The teen said he loves creepy clowns, but it isn't all unsettling imagery for him. The combination of goofy and bloodcurdling characteristics was something I have never seen before. But "It" fans won't have to wait another 27 years for that part of the story. Lillis delivers an incredible performance, and I foresee her name becoming well known as her career continues. The film explores some very dark subject matter that has nothing to do with Pennywise and the humor adds some much needed levity. Skarsgard's Pennywise will undoubtedly keep any naysayers at bay, with a nuanced performance that somehow manages to make even his motionless face appear unnerving. "It's a movie that deals with friendship and the power of confronting darkness together", the director explained.
