Pennywise Returns! Couldn’t Hide from IT. *Spoiler Free*

The Killer Clown of Derry, Maine is back so hide your kids. No one is safe. Stay out of the sewers and follow along for a spoiler free review.

Synopsis

A group of bullied kids band together when a shapeshifting demon, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.

Best Things

The setting is key. The cast is excellent. The Losers Club is made up of a group kids that band together to fight the monster and overcome their fears.

Awful Things

I absolutely loved the original film and I tried not to compare Bill Skarsgård to Tim Curry. That is truly unfair. The great Tim Curry (Clue or Clue-do depending on where you are int he world, Rocky Horror Picture show, Legend with Tom Cruise) has worked his way into the hearts of movie goers and it is difficult to do better. Bill Skarsgård did bring his own brand of creepiness which was new-ish to the part. He seemed much more menacing. It seemed that he looked at the Tim Curry performance, took the best from it, tried not to imitate, and add some JWG to the mx (John Wayne Gacey). He really did not have to be that scary because the sets added to his creepiness.

Recommendations

In great respects to one of the most entertaining actors of all time, Tim Curry, and granted his version was made for tv, this movie is leaps and bounds as a whole above the move that traumatized us as children. It is creepy. It has just enough comic relief to relieve the tenacious tension built by the wonderful pacing of the movie. The jump scares are unpredictable and it is good old haunted house fun.

Overall: 5 Stars (5 / 5)
