Trivia

The release of this film is rather timely, as 2016 witnessed a trend of people dressing up as clowns to harass or violently attack people. Fittingly for the story, they are known to have made threats against schools as well. See more »

Surprisingly good
16 September 2017 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Even though this movie didn't scare me,it was the first time I heard people scream in the audience ever. This movie was absolutely brilliant. It looked beautiful, the actors did a splendid job and this adaptation of IT really added something valuable.I do have to say that the first half of the movie didn't quite capture me, but then it just got better and it kept surprising me.
