I take a look back at the original tv mini-series for Stephen King's IT to see if still holds up or has our nostalgia blinded us. Check it out and leave a comment letting me know what you guys think!

Well, I am not a big fan of clown horror but I think the original IT has successfully turned a happy/peaceful clown to a new horror icon since those times, and this idea seems to have been used in later horror movies/video games.

I haven't watched the new IT yet...........perhaps after watching the new IT I come again to tell you which series I would like better........ Wink

And, may I know which is your most favorite Stephen King movies please? Question

Pennywise isn't a clown, it's a cosmic ancient being, older than the Universe itself. The King's book is like smoking weed, pretty weird and absurd. Curry's portrayal isn't so much accurate, but pretty decent. Skarsgaard's Pennywise have a cool suit, medieval dark. I don't like so much King's horror (prefer Lovecraft) but the idea of an superior being who search for people's deepest fears is not so bad.

Good! I know about Pogo, he's real, so, obviously, more terrorific. But some bullets deep in his brain isn't a hard work.

I know the story and read the book in 1989 Edwardusk friend, for me is a great cliché of King the book and the tv movie is...AGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
and yep Lovercraft is much better!!
