Project Description


Horrifying. Truly terrifying. I rarely like horror as a genre, usually because it’s too cliché and the scares are cheap. But not IT (2017). Because the movie, like its source material, is not really about a scary clown. It’s about the horrors of growing up, of a town that wants to destroy your comfort, an evil the permeates everywhere.

The movie itself is a great adaptation of Stephen King’s novel. It includes many of the same themes, and most of the important plot points. But a word of warning, it is quite scary. It’s one of those fist-clenched, heart-racing the whole time movies. But, if you like the genre, it’s worth your time. Here’s a quick synopsis:

Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an evil that emerges from the sewer … to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise.

The horror genre isn’t for everyone, and I understand that. But if you don’t mind a good scare, and can appreciate a well-done horror flick, check out the trailer, and maybe give the movie itself a go:
