Years ago, I read Stephen King’s book It and it scared the living bejeezus out of me. To this day, I cannot walk past sewer drains without looking in them first to make sure Pennywise the Clown isn’t there waiting to pull me under. When the made-for-television movie aired, my fear of Pennywise (thanks to the excellent Tim Curry) became exponentially worse. Now someone has decided to turn this story of a maniacal clown in the small town of Derry into a full-length film. To say I am scared to death is an understatement. Will I see it? OF COURSE! I am a diehard Stephen King fan, even more so now that I’ve watched the first trailer for the remake. And just when I thought this story couldn’t scare me more than it already has. Watch, if you dare.
“It” will be released in theaters nationwide on September 8, 2017.
