In 1990 the mini-series “It”, which was adapted from the 1986 novel, became one of a legacy of horror series and movie flicks inspired by novelist Stephen King that premiered on television and theaters. Now, over 30 years later, “It” is about to be reintroduced to a brand new audience. So if you’re afraid of creepy clowns with pointy teeth, you better stay away because Pennywise the Clown is out for blood. But for fans of both the book and the original film, this is the best news ever and there’s even a trailer of this horror/coming-of-age fiction movie. So brace yourself, because it’s about to get real bloody.The writer of horror, supernatural, fantasy, and suspenseful fiction has brought all kinds of creepy creatures from the pages of his book into the big screen.
They got to see footage from Aliens: Covenant, heard news about their favorite shows like “Game of Thrones”, and oh yes, they had the chance to get a sneak peak of the upcoming two-park remake of Stephen King’s “It”.
But for some reason, “It”, which is a story of a killer clown who stalks the sewers, and preys on children in the neighborhood in a small town in Maine seems to be by far the most beloved cult favorite.
Then again, you wouldn’t expect anything less from the master of terror, and fans of both the novel and the series will find eerie reminders of the classic mini-series in this new film.
So if the movie can cause fans to react like that, and if it’s as good as the trailer, then it’s sure to be one gory good time.
But if you’ve read the 1986 novel with the same name, you’ll likely know what to expect. Just don’t rule out the possibility of a few surprises here and there.
He’s also reinventing old favorites for a new generation, and loving every moment of it, especially when he gets to sign his autograph in his books for fans.
They also got to see a full scene from the upcoming two-part Stephen King film, “It”. That’s right, you read right. There will be a sequel to it.
It was adapted into a mini-series in 1990 and starred Tim Curry, as the creepy clown known as Pennywise. So if you’ve seen it, you’ll find some eerie similarities in the new film as well.
But there’s nothing wrong with reading the suspenseful novel and then going to the movies to see it in live-action.
But if you’re one of the lucky few who got to see the trailer, or are planning on seeing it on YouTube, fair warning, you can’t unsee what you’ve seen and you’ll have to wait till September 8th of this year to watch the film.
It’s known as “The Losers’ Club” referring to a group of kids who are outcasts among their peers. Aside from bullies, they’ll also have to contend with a clown called Pennywise who is after them. In the book, the novel was set between 1957 and 1958.
And yet somehow, the trailer managed to put audiences on edge. So imagine how creepy the movie is going to be when the main villain rears his ugly head.
Among them are bullies who will taunt, laugh, and ridicule them. But that’s nothing compared to what awaits them.
But with the increased production values, techniques, and special effects, fans will certainly pee their pants halfway through the movie, if not sooner.
They should also avoid watching the trailers at the theater as the premiere date approaches because Pennywise will terrify audiences with his exaggerated facial features, large feet and nose and of course his monstrous mouth.
We’re sure that King is also satisfied with this brand new adaptation brought to us by filmmaker Andres Muschietti.
But the terror becomes clear when one of them says “The Clown”. Then the members are seen looking at photos on a carousel slide project that suddenly takes on a life of its own.
The slides quickly zoom in on Georgie’s face before cutting to his mother, whose face is covered by her hair. Then the hair moves out of the mom’s face and it’s revealed to be that of Pennywise himself.
You also see the classic scene where blood spews out of Beverly’s sink and blasts her in the face like a geyser. Yup! Totally creepy.
They’ve been cornered against a wall by Pennywise, who is approaching them menacingly. Are you getting goosebumps yet?
The Loser’s Club leader, Bill is walking down into his flooded basement where he gets taunted by a ghost. Then, Pennywise rushes at him, leaving audience members screaming before the trailer cuts to black.
But if you’re wondering who’s taken over the iconic role of Pennywise, it’s Bill Skarsgard, who is best known for his role on “Hemlock Grove” and is the brother of “True Blood” actor Alexander Skarsgard.
From the moment you see the character Georgie run right into a street barrier, you’ll know that things can only go downhill from there, but in a good, albeit creepy way.
The producers reiterated to the audience that Stephen said that he “wanted to let everybody know that they should stop worrying about it as the producers have done a wonderful job with the production”. So if King is cool with it, then we definitely can’t wait until the film premieres.
