Trivia

Composer Benjamin Wallfisch had incorporated children singing the nursery rhyme, "Oranges and Lemons" into the score. Director Andy Muschietti came up with the idea of using the old English nursery rhyme. Wallfisch explains, "[Muschietti's] approach, I think, was to try and find a sound for Pennywise that is somehow the sound of him thinking, the sound of him contemplating the idea of attack - or actually attacking." He further explains, "What was fascinating about using something as seemingly innocent and innocuous as a children's play song is that incredible dichotomy between what's on the surface and what is under the surface." The "Oranges and Lemons" rhyme would usually play when Pennywise is luring his victims. See more »

Better than Original! Seven Kids Versus Evil Cannibal Clown
25 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The first sequence is classical example of US horror film. In which, the evil clown suddenly and naturally appears, and it victimizes the kid who drops his toys into drainage passage on a rainy day in the local city of US.

We not only easily grab the setting of the evil clown and what he wants. It is a typical bogie man story who eats and kidnap kids who are afraid of it.

It(2017) proves effective use of VFX. CG animation is to crate what traditional acting or camera working or editing technique can not achieve.

This film actually avoided overused VFX and CG animations (CG is not an editorial work but it's computer animation).

Moreover, it recovered or tried to revive the core spirit of 1980s' Goonies(1985) or Stand By Me(1986) to the certain extent. This is also well accepted and understandable.

The evil clown is typical Boogieman like Freddy in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), and it has common feature with Freddy. Furthermore, it is scarier than the latter.

I appreciate the legitimate and efficient structure of this film. It is the best horror film of 2017!
