My Rating: (4.9 / 5)
Movie is really good!! The Pennywise clown is shown exceptionally well. I must say the movie IT is better than the 1990 television movie. Also, I liked the way they have brought the signature scene from the old show, Georgie peeping into the drain duct for his paper sailboat. He sees a clown in there. The clown bites his arm off and drags him in the sewer.
The smile of the clown, OMG, is so scary. Whenever think of that evil smile, I get goosebumps. I have always been scared of clowns. In India, there was a TV show in Zee TV called “Woh” during my childhood. The music of that show was so scary, whenever that music I used to hear, I used to get extremely scared and rush home quickly. This show made every 90’s children run away from clowns in birthday party.
In IT movie, the clown keeps the fear goes on. It is shown as a very strong evil clown. Also, a very interesting fact about the movie is, those who have seen the 1990’s show or those who have read the book, they know that the clown appears after every 27 years. The kids are his food. The clown stores all the kids to eat for the rest of 27 years.
Considering the fact, the IT movie was released exactly after 27 years later the first TV show in the year 1990. Means the Pennywise clown came again to take away the children after 27 years.
The movie has an interesting story with excellent picturization. The movie is picturized on 50’s or 60’s style scenery clubbed with the latest ideas. Nice direction and the cast is perfect. All the characters have played their role pretty well.
I would say it is a must watch horror film. “IT chapter 2” is releasing in 2019. So guys, watch this film before second part. I would give it 4.9 out of 5.
