IT Makes Losers as Winners


I believe clowns were created to make people happy and when they become the object of horror or something we perceive should make us happy becomes horrifying, then its impact is far more powerful. That's how the film IT was to me but still, it provided with some good laughs.

New Line Cinema's horror thriller "IT," directed by Andy Muschietti ("Mama"), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

The frightening scenes were familiar (which I'm expecting because it's a screen adaptation of an old novel) but it got a refreshing take because of how its young cast (Losers Club) reacted to it. Their characters were fully developed and relationships clearly established.

Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise was really a scary character to match. I felt completely terrified as the youngsters were.

IT gave me an amazing experience! I love watching horror movies but not the gory ones. I'm not familiar with Stephen King's works but my colleagues were saying that the film was not exactly what was in the novel. Though it gave them that nostalgic feel.

Apart from its scary feels though, it highlighted the strength that one can have when done together as a group as it becomes a big force to reckon with. Losers can be winners as well in the end.
