A film by Andy Muschietti
Cast: Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard
A group of bullied kids stand together when a demon in a form of a clown are terrorising the children in this little town.
Ok first in the 90’s there was remake is a the mini-series called it. Same principle but the remake is a film now and is it going to be any good. The film the exorcist here back in the 70’s did really good at the box office no doubt but It broke that record and became at $489 wold wide and climbing the biggest draw in the horror genre.
The film moves the time frame to 1988-89 and sticks with our core group of seven kids while they’re still adolescent misfits, which grounds their story. Kind like the series Stranger things. So far so good. It feels just right here which is an adaptation of Steven King’s novel. Muschietti shows some glimmers of early Spielberg and it is going to feel like the movie stand by me a little there too. The build up could of being a little better there but it is effective. This is the period where there was internet nor cell phone and kids where playing outside all day. One by one the kids sees the clown and get scared shitless. Until they decided tho have a show down. The cast excellent here by long shot. Yes it is funny at times put a little humour here and there plus when you where kids well you always insulted each other. With all do seriousness here even if you do not like horror movies try this one.
