"The very BEST TV series of a Stephen King adaptation."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A string of sickening murders in Mike Hanlon's sleepy town of Derry, Maine encourage him to suspect that the evil terror that he and a group of friends battled as children has returned. Mike calls his friends, “The Lucky Seven”, back to, once and for all, put an end to the terrifying, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise or “It”.

"Not as good as the book!"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It is an almost impossible task to condense a novel as complex and dense with imagery as ‘It’ into a movie, or even a mini-series. What is presented here, though three hours long, is simply the bare bones of the story, lacking in the depth and artistry which makes the book so great. Tim Curry's Pennywise is a highlight of the film, as is Seth Green's role as a young Richie Tozier. While this production is still watchable and even enjoyable, and contains several flashes of terror (it certainly reconfirms this author's dislike of clowns!), pure fans of the books cannot help but be disappointed.

Description

It

Is there anything scarier than clowns? Of course not. And who knows scary better than Stephen King? You see where we're going. It puts a malevolent clown (given demented life by a powdered, red-nosed Tim Curry) front and center, as King's fat novel gets the TV-movie treatment. Even at three hours plus, the action is condensed, but an engaging Stand by Me vibe prevails for much of the running time.

The seven main characters, as adolescents, conquered a force of pure evil in their Maine hometown. Now, the cackling Pennywise is back, and they must come home to fight him–or, should we say, It–again. Admitting the TV-movie trappings and sometimes hysterical performances, this is a genuinely gripping thriller. As so often with King, the basic idea (the bond formed during a childhood trauma) is clean and powerful, a lifeline anchored in reality that leads us to the supernatural.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The result, featuring a strong cast, is far better than any adaptation so far of a King book. " – John J. O'Connor
  • " The four-hour package makes an eerie supernatural tale, spiced with substantial good-versus-evil subtext and musings on the power of friendship. " – Rick Kogan
  • " For those who revel in the eerie and macabre, It is heartier than a bowl of eyeball stew. " – Tom Jicha
