It (1990)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
12.14.17

It (1990) In modern day Derry, Maine, children are disappearing. The town Librarian remembers something from his childhood in 1960, something to do with other children disappearing. He soon contacts all his other childhood friends who experienced the same thing-and they begin to remember the events. You see, every thirty years a creature awakens to feed on people, a creature able to assume different forms. His favorite is that of Pennywise, a sinister clown (Tim Curry). The movie goes back and forth from the adults to them as children, trying to put a stop to this monster.

It also features a crop of well known TV actors of the time, from John Ritter (THREE's COMPANY) to Harry Anderson (NIGHT COURT) and Richard Thomas (WALTONS), which gives it a familiarity. Tim Curry's portrayal of Pennywise is fantastic and the only thing that makes this creepy. For the most part the special effects are well done, from the clown to the werewolf to its true form, which they see at the end. The stop-motion-animation isn't so great.

My biggest gripe of this made-for-television mini-series is that it changed the ending of the Stephen King book, which is probably had to do since it had to have a "PG" type rating. Hopefully the upcoming adaptation of it will do the novel justice. Also, this version madeI me realize how much the recent movie SUPER 8 ripped off this book.
