For Day 19 of 31 Days of Halloween, we have another movie based off of a Stephen King novel: It. This newest version is so much closer to the book than the Tim Curry version. I love how terrifying but whimsical the villain of Pennywise is in this film, and I can’t wait for part two to come out!
IMDB’s Description: “In the summer of 1989, a group of bullied kids band together to destroy a shapeshifting monster, which disguises itself as a clown and preys on the children of Derry, their small Maine town.”
This is a fabulous adaptation! It’s genuinely scary and visually very interesting. If you’re afraid of clowns, prepare to lose some sleep for sure! But that’s not all that this film has to offer. The eclectic bunch of kids that band together are a truly lovable group of misfits, and this makes you really want to root for them!
