Description

The horror thriller “IT”, directed by Andrés Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids is faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

    Horror creatures work best when kept in the shadows, or not seen at all. This is where the film falls down. Pennywise is shown in broad daylight, with no subtlety or sense of dread. The other nasties are also pretty unoriginal, too. I felt like I’d seen them before in other films. IT works best when it focuses on its human characters. The interaction between the kids is great, with some real touching moments that are up there with Kings best. But when you see a clown standing in the background waving a severed arm about... it loses all seriousness and the sense of uneasiness it’s trying to build up. Even the opening scene drops the ball, showing too much of pennywise and his frankly ridiculous CGI teeth. Rent it before you decide to buy.

    Good movie with some good acting but not scary, IMO the original although dated was scarier, it was just like my review title, I just hope chapter 2 is more of a horror movie
  • Goonies with horror! Excellent film!

    I really enjoyed this movie. The character building was fantastic and the scares really intense. If you are a fan of the 80’s horror films like nightmare on elm street or kids movies like goonies you will go crazy for this. Its a brilliant film that well deserves 5 stars.
  • Great ONE

    I don’t use to like horror films and/or blood scenes specially the bad effects ones but I must say that I really enjoyed IT ... The kids are marvellous and the storyline and effects are quite good... Highly recommended!!!

    I can remember being terrified as an 8 year old boy after watching the Tim Curry version and this remake is far far creepier. Package together modern special effects and sound with a monster who can shapeshift into what you fear most whilst appearing out of nowhere and you get a really scary piece of entertainment. All of the kids do great in their roles and Skarsgard is the perfect pennywise. Plus in amongst all the suspense and heart racing moments the 80s era was awesome to revisit. Throroughly recommended and can't wait for part 2. Do not let your children anywhere near it though, they wont sleep for months!

    The only somewhat scary scene of this film is the opening one. On the whole a silly predictable children’s story. Waste of time.
