Whichever way you look–there is black, orange and an array of browns, the temperature has dropped, and everyone has chills.

IT Review: A Spooky Scary Sweet Success

8/10

 

IT provides a unique experience in which the viewer is entranced in a relatively scary heartfelt coming of age story with disturbing themes, superb special effects, beautiful acting, and a terrifying clown. Imagine, in terms of other Stephen King movies, Stand by Me meets The Shining. IT’s biggest flaws are pacing and transition issues and a feeling of a few missing scenes while some drag on for too long. However, it’s very polished nature and jet-speed pacing allows you to overlook these for the most part.

IT’s humor is mostly offered by the film’s one comic relief character, not by goofiness, but rather often blunt and vulgar jokes. But it is funny and effective enough to work none the less. He kept the entire theatre laughing every time and it felt appropriate for a movie set in the late 80’s. Be warned, the film deals with heavy and upsetting themes like bullying, abuse and although IT is not as scary as other horror films it can still be too much to some younger and more susceptible viewers, especially if you have coulrophobia (phobia of clowns).
