IT, the name alone holds weight. Stephen King’s infamous novel is one of horror’s great treasures and the classic 90’s TV mini-series it spawned has etched its place in horror history on the strength of Tim Curry’s iconic performance as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. So of course when news broke of a remake being in the works it was met with equal parts excitement and skepticism. This is understandable as the prospect of a big screen, big budget adaption had some horror fans salivating at the potential, while it had others feeling it isn’t IT without Tim Curry as Pennywise. Truth be told I can see both sides and have felt both ways throughout the production of the new film. However I am pleased to say, this new interpretation of IT delivers the goods. Mostly.
