“It” Doesn’t Scare Us


In 1990 the most popular movie was “It,” which was based around a group of friends with different fears. Their biggest fear was what they had in common – a clown named Pennywise. Stephen King, the author of “It”, “Shining,” and “Pet Sematary,” decided to remake the ‘90s movie “It” in 2017. Since then, fans have been waiting to see what Pennywise does next.

“It: Chapter One” came out September 8, 2017. The main character Pennywise the creepy, dancing clown was played by Bill Skarsgard. In the town of Derry, Maine, kids from ages 6-16 would randomly go missing, when parents thought they were spending the night at friends. Pennywise tortured the group of seven “Losers club” with their biggest fears until they would get so scared they wouldn’t have anything else to do, but run away.

27 years later…. Pennywise is hungrier than ever but just for the “losers club” only. Since it had been years later the group of “losers club” is now all adults and most are married with successful jobs outside of Derry. In the summer of 1986 the “losers club” made an oath that whatever they were doing, wherever they were they would come back and finally kill the clown. From waiting two years for “It: Chapter Two” was pretty worth it, but since the creators uploaded two trailers, it was pretty predictable. The first trailer gave enough information about the idea of what the movie was going to be about. But the second trailer gave a little too much information on the movie where you would know what happened next. This film is rated “R” but this movie isn’t bad or scary enough to be considered “a bad movie.” The main issue would probably be the language, but a majority of kids have heard it.
