The book turned movie directed by Andy Muschietti comes out September 8th in the US, but some sources have already had the opportunity of seeing it and shared their insight about the new hit horror film.
Stephen King’s “It” is a 1,100 page horror novel from 1986 that follows seven children who must face their fears throughout the book. Most frequently, “It” appears as a clown named Pennywise and its main prey is children. Throughout the novel, the characters grow and must return to defeat this clown as adults. For the movie adaption by Muschietti, the film only features the first part of the book with the children. Thus, the film is undoubtedly coming out with a sequel to keep the audience on their toes.
That being said, the anticipation for the movie has been at an all time high, and some sources have already gotten the chance to see the film. Warning: If you don’t want to know anything about the film coming out Sept. 8, I wouldn’t read forward if I were you.
According to RollingStone, If you want to see the losers grow up in 27 years and tackle Pennywise in his next appearance, sorry – you’ll have to wait for Part 2. It’s a bit of cheat, to be sure.” they said. “There is no modern classic, like The Babadook. But It will creep you out big time. ”
Additionally, critics from Polygon compared the film to the popular tv series, Stranger Things, which might possibly promise for a hopeful future for the movie.
“It won’t be my favorite horror movie of 2017, but I’m more than pleased with the Stranger Things-like movie that Muschietti directed,” they said. “We could all use a little bit more Stranger Things and a little less Saw in our lives and It, against all odds, proved just that.”
If your a horror film fan, go see It for yourself in theaters Sept. 8.
