Movie Review IT
IT WAS disturbing scary, not cheap-jump-out-of-your-seat scary! IT reminded me why I dislike clowns and old condemned houses in the neighborhood that all the kids say is haunted.
The make up and effects used for Pennywise were never overdone yet his presence in any scene stole the scene! Along with Pennywise the sets and atmosphere masterfully captured everything that makes children hide under their bed sheets at night!
I didn't recognize any of the child actors but they all did a fantastic job, the group reminded me of movies like the Goonies and Monster Squad but more serious. It's very a narrow line that horror movies walk when there are child actors involved and IT reached that limit with poping the ballon if you get what I mean.
Pennywise wise scared the shIT out of me and I'm a grown ass adult! My 7 year old son told me a kid in his 2nd grade class watched IT......so either I'm a big wuss or my son's friend is full of shIT.
I haven't seen a good horror movie in so long this was welcome change from the annual Saw flicks and Insidious sequels!
Growing Up my best friend's family had a summer house that we's go to to occasionally and there was a guest room that was decorated floor to ceiling with clowns.....I opted to sleep down in the bottom floor where I could hear mice scampering across the ceiling tiles in stead of the "clown room".
