In 1960, seven outcast kids known as "The Loser Club" 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.
After a deadly plague kills most of the world's population, the remaining survivors split into two groups - one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being - to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.
In 1960, a group of social outcasts who are bullied by a gang of greasers led by Henry Bowers are also tormented by an evil demon who can shape-shift into a clown and feed on children's fears and kill them. After defeating the demonic clown as kids, it resurfaces 30 years later and they must finish it off as adults once again. Written by
During the opening credits, we see pictures of the "Lucky Seven" from their childhood like in a photo album. The final photo of the Paramount cinema segues into the actual one in Derry. The camera pulls back from the title IT, and it turns from white to red. In Pt 2, the final photo of a hotel segues into the one the "Lucky Seven" are staying at. At the end of both parts, Pennywise's laugh is heard. See more »
The feeling this film gave me when i first watched it as a minor, is the feeling i look to get from any horror film to date. I remember begging and pleading to my sister to let me stay up late and watch it whilst my mother was out one night. Needless to say, i was a bag of nerves for weeks. I wouldn't go in the bathroom, i sure as hell kept my arms away from drains and let's just say, if i ever were to meet Tim Curry i'd be swiftly changing direction. This film haunted me for so long and for some reason now i'm trying to regain that feeling at the age of 23, some 13 years later? If you haven't seen this tele-play of a great Stephen King novel then you should see it, or turn a blind eye while your kids watch it. Just joking, I seriously wouldn't go in the bathroom for weeks, the last trait you want from a kid.
