If you are at all familiar with the Stephen King book IT then you know that it is arguably the most terrifying story he has ever written. And that’s saying a lot.
Of course, he already had a head start when he decided to make the villain a scary goddamn clown named Pennywise. The fact that this clown was picking off kids left and right just made it even worse.
Now they’ve FINALLY gone and done the book right with a new movie coming out this fall.
Here’s the film’s description which somehow doesn’t just read, “A movie about a scary fucking clown.”
New Line Cinema’s horror thriller “IT,” directed by Andrés Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
“IT” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“Tales of Halloween”) and Nicholas Hamilton (“Captain Fantastic”).
Get ready to pee your pants a little bit.
Yeah, NOPE. (Still going to have to go see it though.)
See you in your nightmares…
IT officially begins freaking people the hell out on September 8th.
