Andy Muschietti’s horror thriller is a terrific new take on Stephen King’s hugely popular It, which has been terrifying readers for decades. As children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young misfit kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against killer clown Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. Drawing on 80s favourites like Poltergeist and The Goonies, this update is also reminiscent of Netflix’s excellent TV series Stranger Things, with a pleasing balance between the teens, their friendships and daily lives, alongside genuinely chilling moments of terror.
“Enthusiastic, cine-literate retelling of Stephen King’s horror novel” ***** The Observer
