What is it about?
This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:
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.
This movie was slightly above average in my opinion so it did a pretty good job in my opinion and I thought that it was a pretty good movie, but it is not as good as some people are making it out to be in my opinion.
I think that the creepiest thing in the movie is probably the woman from a painting (possibly named Judith according to this post by Bloody Disgusting called Muschietti Talks Paintings that Inspired Nightmarish New ‘IT’ Creature), when you see the scenes with her in it you will know what I am talking about, her features are so unbalanced and she is tall and skinny and just creepy to me.
Spoiler alert, Here is a video clip of that scene, but this is only part of it so the emotional and dramatic impact is mostly missing:
