It
Anybody remember the original 1990 TV series featuring Tim Curry as Pennywise? I remember it scaring the bejesus out of me back in the day. It was on TV last night and my 9 year old wanted to watch. Well, he made it to the bathroom sink scene and that was it. There is a new "It" movie being released today in movie theaters. I think I may go check it out; however, with this version the clown looks freakier and it's rated R, so no kids.

Thank you for giving me PTSD level flashbacks to when I watched it as a little kid.

My 15 year old wants to see it. She can probably handle the movie.

Tim Curry is great. He's been in so many good shows through the years. His health is pretty bad though - suffered a major stroke a few years back and is now confined to a wheelchair.

Same here. That series traumatized a generation.

Horror movies didn't scare me then but they scare the crap out of me now.

I wonder why that is.

It's the opposite with me. I tried to explain to my son that it's not real and there are lots of folks with movie cameras just out of the picture but that didn't work. I think it's the music more than anything. The new "It" looks scarier though and the clown is creepier as well. Probably why this version is rated R and the previous version was on television.

Nearly every time I see a damn clown, even today, I think of Pennywise.

Loved the book. Not sure how much the movie can catch from the book but I will check it out.

From the reviews I've seen, people seem to be sh*tting their pants over the remake. It's apparently really good. I can do creepy and scary, I just hate jump scares. I find them annoying.

The original apparently differed from Stephen King's book by quite a bit, especially the ending. I guess that was to be expected with a TV budget though.
