Review – IT

By Demeco Gibbs


    The horror movie IT, based on the 1986 novel by Stephen King, is one of the scariest movies of all time. The film is filled with jump scares and heart racing moments. Fans of horror movies will love this film.

    The story takes place in the small Maine town of Derry and tells of a legend of an evil that returns to town every 27 years. In the story, seven youngsters encounter the evil which has taken on the form of a clown named Pennywise.  Once he sees you and you see him you are a target for his evening meal.So you better watch out or he will have you for dinner.

    The original film version of King’s novel was released as a TV mini-series in 1990. In this new incarnation, the film focuses solely on the childhood scenes of King’s characters leaving the doors wide open for a sequel showing our young heroes as adults as they are seen in King’s story.

    IT has brought in over $270 million at the box office so far and had a record-breaking opening weekend with ticket sales topping $123 million. The movie is clearly a hit with horror movie fans who are lining up to see this movie on the big screen. and stands to bring in much more when released on disc.  

    We’ll see you in 27 years.
