REVIEW: Stephen King's IT (1990 Tim Curry)

 

With the remake of It in theatres now introducing a new generation to the terror that is Pennywise the clown, I thought I would revisit the original made for TV film that started it all.

In the quiet town of Derry, Maine, seven freinds, Bill, Eddie, Mike, Bev, Stan, Richie and Ben (The Losers Club) have all been seeing and hearing strange things. Most of which revolve around a Clown called Pennywise, which they all admit being real. The kids eventually discover that the leader of the club, Bill's little brother, fell victim to this evil. The group sets out to stop the force and put it to rest once and for all. 30 years after defeating IT, Mike Hanlon, the only Member who remained in Derry, suspects that IT has returned and is forced to call back all of the Losers club, due to a promise they all made to return if its evil shall ever resurface. Uncovering new powers, clues and evil the club reunites as adults and come face to face with the evil that has haunted and fed on Derry for the last centuries.

Featuring a whose who of Hollywood royalty including Harry Anderson (Night Court) and John Ritter (Three's Company) as well as a future star named Seth Green (The Interview) and the incomparable Tim Curry as Pennywise this movie hit all the high notes that a horror movie should have in fact, as I recall the first time I saw It, I was so scared of Pennywise that I literally didn't watch it until 10 years later well into my adulthood. Add to that incredible art direction overseen by Stephen King himself and you have a masterpiece of epic proportions with enough scare factor to match even the likes of Friday The 13th. Not to Miss

  • I'm not a big fan of his work and I found most of the movies to be lack luster. But this one was good and I got into Pet Semetary as well (although #2 sucked).
