The woman in the painting, Judith the Flute Lady, who's portrayed by Tatum Lee, was originally supposed to have some minor visual effects augmentations. Her eyes were digitally altered and warped apart to give off an unnatural, unnerving look. However, Rodeo FX went on to add more digital elements onto the character to the point where most of the physical performance was almost entirely replaced. See more »

The Warner Bros./New Line Cinema logos are darker than usual, have an eerie glow around them, and it starts to rain around them, with a red balloon floating beside the New Line logo. The Ratpac logo also takes place on a cloudy and raining background. See more »
Having not seen the original movie and only tidbits of the trailer, I didn't really know what to expect when walking into the cinema this evening. Someone described the movie as 'The Goonies' meets 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' - this turned out to be an extremely accurate description!
The opening scene seems to suggest that the movie will be very dark, yet these expectations are quickly dispersed as the horror is undercut by comedy. This happens repeatedly throughout the film: and it works. My friends and I (as well as the entire packed cinema) found ourselves gasping at scenes of sheer terror, then only moments later laughing hysterically at the banter between the main characters.
I would say that this is not a film for the faint of heart, yet I think even those individuals would find themselves enjoying 'It'. If not for the horror, then certainly for the comedy and camaraderie. It's as if this is a movie within a movie: a mix of a high-school-problems/coming-of-age movie and a horror. A brilliant two-for-one if you ask me!
Great acting from all of the cast as well as excellent writing make this movie a must watch!
