A sinister Pennywise returns with a big dose of nostalgia in "It"

The movie is an American horror film based on Sephen King's 1986 novel "It", in which a clown called Pennywise terrorises a small town.

As the spray painted text reveals, the balloons are a marketing tool for the for the upcoming release of Stephen King's chilling horror film "It". Jeremy Ray Taylor is Ben, the overweight new kid in school who has been studying up on the history of tragedies, usually involving children, in Derry. "Gerald's Game" and "1922" are both feature films premiering on Netflix in the fall. Tennis fans should also look out for Battle of the Sexes, about the 1973 match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, which will be screened at the London Film Festival next month. And what about the inevitable comparisons to Tim Curry? Muschiettir ecounts, "Pennywise's wall-eyed appearance was something I had in mind from early on-I wanted him to have this insane look where one of the eyes is going in a different direction, the opposite of cross-eyed". The whole troupe of young actors is primed for Stranger Things breakout success, including a second round forStranger Things' Finn Wolfhard. "I totally see why you feel that way".

Quite apart from the fact that he's on train tracks in one picture, it's just all far too creepy, thanks very much.

Eventually, The Losers Club has to take up arms against this monstrosity, but before you can grow up you must first be a child. It would nearly be idyllic, elegiac and bittersweet, were it not for the fact that they are also in fear of their lives from a satanically leering clown who occasionally turns into other disfigured creatures and wants to imprison them all forever in his horrendous lair somewhere in the town's sewage system. The first film, It, is focused exclusively on the Losers Club's younger years, so how will the sequel shake out?

And what a monster It is. But It goes by another name...a name that has become iconic in the annals of horror: Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

One cinema in Texas is hosting a clown-only screening of the film (directed by Andres Muschietti) - complete with make-up artists to help make sure you're looking your freakish best. "If you like the characters... if you care... the scares generally work". That was enough for me to go, 'Okay, Bill, just go with it'. Memories of childhood have a tendency to take on a larger-than-life quality, a perspective which Muschietti interprets on film with romantic sentimentality half the time and grotesquely distorted funhouse-mirror theatricality the rest. They'd rather not have to deal with the horror closing in around them - who would? - but they can not escape the increasingly vivid visions of their greatest fears. So while the kids give great performances and there are some scary moments here (a mid-film slide show is a classic), a lot of this largely plotless film is made up of the usual jump scares and chase sequences, plus some boilerplate coming-of-age material about the power of friendship. As a novel It is a story about adults who had bad things happen to them as children, and how growing up largely involves forgetting about those bad things. Can we get another installment with the kids before their grown-up selves reunite in Derry?

And the revamp has even freaked out the author himself, who commented that he was 'not prepared for how good it really was'.

That goes against conventional wisdom because the most adaptable books tend to be short on interior monologue and long on external action.
