IT's Coming!

September 8th is right around the corner, and with it comes the highly anticipated (at least to this guy) release of IT. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of the 1990 miniseries, but it was definitely lacking in the straight horror department. Tim Curry was amazing with the material he was given, but there was just too much humor in it. I didn’t feel the terror oozing out of the screen like i did off the pages of the book. 

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a huge fan of the costume for the new Pennywise. I can’t pinpoint exactly what i don’t like about it, but there’s something there. Hopefully that is the only complaint I have with the movie. Considering how big of a fan of IT i am, as well as Stephen King in general, i don’t think that will be the case. There’s no such thing as a perfect book to screen adaptation, but I think this one will satisfy me. 

We've been treated to some footage of the kids in action, and some quite terrifying scenes via official trailers, but I refuse to pass judgement on this movie until I get the chance to actually watch it.
