– It is a complicated title to describe. Believe it or not, but this is the very first time that the famous horror staple has been brought to the big screen, since the most famous previous incarnation with Tim Curry was a made-for-TV miniseries, which were both based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. Like the miniseries, It is actually intended to be a two-parter. While the movie and miniseries are similar to each other, they do skip over many themes that were in the original book (and honestly that might be for the best). In this big screen version, 7 children and others are terrorized by “It” a creature that feeds off the fear of children before killing them and usually appears as “Pennywise the Dancing Clown.”
