Awesome Stephen King telefilm, 25 September 2005
Author: kungfuquaker from United States

Of all the video versions of Stephen King books this is one of my all time favorites. The Stand and Dolores Claiborne were also fantastic, but for plain old horror IT stands out. Tim Curry's laugh was terrifying (but I have always been terrified of clowns), Harry Anderson's/Seth Green's off the wall humor was relieving, and all the performances were great. Dennis Christopher (who I have loved since Breaking Away and Fade to Black), Richard Thomas (still a writer, but other than that quite different from John Boy), John Ritter and Jonathan Brandis (RIP), Annette O'Toole, Tim Reid, and the other young actors who played them as children were all super. This story seemed to be Stephen King's answer to Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes." Just scarier and more geared to adults.
