6 September 2017 8:36 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It is happening again.

This Friday, director Andrés Muschietti will unleash It on moviegoers, bringing one of horror master Stephen King's biggest and best books to big-screen life at last. (Reviews have already started pouring in.) Starring Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise, the sinister shapeshifting clown whose made the town of Derry, Maine his killing ground and Jaeden Lieberher as Bill Denbrough, the leader of a group of kids on a mission to take the monster down, it's one of the most eagerly anticipated King adaptations ever. Not even multiple behind-the-scenes shakeups, »

It Sequel To Explore Pennywise In More Depth

4 September 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While the recently released Stephen King adaptation The Dark Tower was met with critical and box office disappointment, the future looks very bright for the upcoming It, which is directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga and Gary Dauberman. Early previews have generated some extremely positive reactions and as such, even before it’s actually reached general audiences, attention has already turned to the prospect of It 2.

The television miniseries of the classic Stephen King story consisted of two parts – reflecting the way in which the format of the source novel sees 12 year-olds battle demonic clown Pennywise, before heading back for a rematch thirty years later. This being the case, Muschietti’s cinematic version of the story has always been expected to take the form of a movie and a sequel. In cinema, however, sequels are entirely dependent upon the success of the initial instalment, which suggests two things – firstly, »

Rebecca Lea Jul 24, 2017

Tim Curry's Pennywise dominates the first screen adaptation of Stephen King's It. Fancy a lookback?

The film: When several children are murdered in the town of Derry, Maine, the local librarian Mike Hanlon (Tim Reid) calls his old friends, Bill Denborough (Richard Thomas), Beverley Marsh (Annette O’Toole), Ben Hanscom (John Ritter), Eddie Kaspbrak (Dennis Christopher), and Richie Tozier (Harry Anderson). Plaguing Derry is a mysterious entity they call It, which manifests as childhood fears, including the form of Pennywise the Clown (Tim Curry). The friends defeated it thirty years earlier and return to Derry to fulfil their promise and finish the job.

Another slight bend in the rules this week with the It mini-series, but with a new adaptation on the way and the 1990 version’s considerable reputation, it’s not one I felt I could miss out. Stephen King »

13 Things You Never Knew About the Original It Movie

2 May 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This September, the first half of the two-part film adaptation of Stephen King's 1986 novel, It, will be released. For those unfamiliar, the story follows a group of childhood friends who is terrorized by a shape-shifting, evil being that preys on the fears of its victims. Over 20 years later, the creature - which often takes the form of a clown named Pennywise aka "It" - returns, forcing the friends, now adults, to come together and protect the next generation as well as themselves. The Fall film, which features a cast of young up-and-coming actors (including Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise), will be so terrifying that it'll have you shaking in your boots. Yet, this isn't the first time the horror story has hit the screens. In 1990, the first adaptation aired on ABC as a miniseries, starring Rocky Horror Picture Show alum Tim Curry as the demented clown. Take a look at »

Comparing The Trailer To Stephen King's It With The Original Miniseries

3 April 2017 10:47 PM, PDT | | See recent LRM Online news »

Peek a boo

I will always have a soft spot for Stephen King's It. Without It, no pun intended, I would not have explored the amazing world that Stephen King created. Like many kids my age, I became aware of the book due to the ABC Miniseries that starred a young Seth Green as well as established stars of the time like Tim Reid, John Ritter, Harry Anderson, and of course the legendary Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown, the It that scares the children of Derry, Maine.

They're doing a remake? Ha! 

Stephen King's It on ABC was one of a series of miniseries based on his books that he had a hand in producing. You would think it was an odd fit for work of his kind, work that typically falls into the horror realm. If you've read the book, you would probably shake your head in confusion »

Catch The Teaser And Poster For It

28 March 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

“Let go. Be afraid. You all taste so much better when you’re afraid.” – It.

Winter of 1990 and ABC showed a miniseries that scared the living daylights out of viewers with it images of clowns and balloons. These were the days of Vcr’s and cassette tapes, when DVR’s and Blu-ray weren’t even thought of yet.

The miniseries It was true water-cooler banter for the next morning. Starring Richard Thomas, Tim Reid, Annette O’Toole, Richard Masur, Dennis Christopher, Harry Anderson and Tim Curry, it was based on the novel by Stephen King.

In 1960, seven pre-teen outcasts fight an evil demon who poses as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the demon once and for all when it returns to their hometown.

The 2-parter won awards including an Emmy for it’s super creepy score – Outstanding Achievement in Music Composition for a Miniseries or »
