"there all float down here". This is Stephen King's story about a group of friends are called back to their hometown to face an evil they thought they defeated 30 years ago. In able to do so they are forced to open old wounds and face unwanted memories. The first part of this mini TV series was creepy and scary but when part 2 came it went stupid and silly.

IT is scary... for children. This was the first horror movie I ever saw. I was 5 or 6 years old and had a very bad baby-sitter. Afterwards I was afraid of everything that could be even remotely connected to this movie and my fear of clowns didn't go away until I was about 18. When I saw IT again and laughed all the way through. It's really not good at all. But I like it in a sentimental sort of way. IT is one of those movies that are so bad that they're good.

I find this movie to be horribly scary, it's also good entertainment. I watched 'IT' for the first time when I was 17. It scared me so bad all of it, it has scarred me of clowns, the only thing they could have done better for this movie would be to have not made him turn into a spider at the end.

Stephen King's It

I was surprised at just how terrible this movie really is. I'd only ever seen clips of it on TV during October but I finally decided to watch it in its entirety. And man, I did not expect to laugh that much. At least it was hilariously bad as opposed to just bad. The writing was clunky. The acting was awkward and unrealistic at best. Other times, it was just cringe-worthy. Some scenes were so random and unnecessary that all I could do was shake my head in amazement that they were actually in the film. I watched a bit of the audio commentary afterwards and god, the director was talking like he'd made some kind of horror masterpiece. And it's not. It's really not. I can see why it's become a staple Halloween flick though, the campiness of it all sort of has its own kind of charm. And to be ...

Wonderful King Mini-series!

I first saw this movie on TV around the time it first debuted. I saw it at my mother's house and it didn't scare me much at first. Or maybe I just don't remember it doing so. Anyway, over the years, I kept watching it more and more. Mostly when it came on TV. There was the occasional time I'd just rent the movie but it wasn't enough. I wanted this movie. I bought it on VHS first but then switched to laserdisc. After that, I became extremely addicted watching it just about everyday. My obsession with this movie is really quite weird. It scares me to death, yet I still love it. Just thinking of this movie gives me chills.
The scariest part about this movie was, of course, Pennywise the Dancing Clown, portrayed wonderfully by the extremely talented Tim Curry. Whether it be his evil smile or...

Not Impressed

I havenít read the book prior to watching this film so I canít compare consistencies between the two media. However, it doesnít change the fact that I was extremely disappointed by this picture/mini-series. From friends and reviews online, Iíve been informed that this is a pretty scary flick. I was excited to rent it because I remember watching a scene or two when I was about eleven years old and I thought it was creepy so I immediately changed the channel. But from watching ďItĒ from beginning to end, it was very underwhelming. The thought the first half was pretty good, especially the child actors. Some standouts include Seth Green, Brandon Crane, and the late Jonathan Brandis. I believed that they were being terrified by Pennywise (played by Tim Curry) because itís natural for children...
