It Review: An Excellent Coming-of-Age Movie, Until That Clown Gets in the Way

it movie 2017 age rating

By Hillary Busis

Image may contain Toy and Doll

The most appealing parts of Andy Muschietti’s splashy It channel another classic Stephen King adaptation—but not the 1990 miniseries version of It , featuring an iconic Tim Curry performance that sent scores of terrified children straight to the therapist’s couch (according to schoolyard legend, anyway).

No, It is at its best when the titular shape-shifting demon—which, as if you weren’t aware, most often takes the form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown—is nowhere to be found. The first It was anchored by Curry’s gleeful menace; the second focuses on the bond formed between a group of young misfits one crazy summer. There’s more than a whiff of Stand by Me about the newer movie, not only because of thematic similarities between that film’s source material and It, but also thanks to Muschietti’s killer cast—a deft collection of teenaged talents that seem destined to break big à la Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O’Connell.

When It ’s seven-core performers— Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jack Dylan Grazer —are arguing about the merits of loogie mass vs. distance or bashfully exploring their first flashes of puppy love, It is a delight. Every member of the gang that comes to call themselves the Losers’ Club is natural and charismatic, especially the luminous Lillis as Beverly, the only girl in the group, and Wolfhard, whose wisecracking Richie easily walks away with the movie. Their ensemble scenes display the same sort of easy camaraderie that made Stranger Things (which also stars Wolfhard, and was heavily influenced by the original It ) such a hit for Netflix last summer. Sure, the movie’s R rating allows Muschietti to get gorier than the 1990 It —but more importantly, it gives the kids the freedom to say “fuck,” not gratuitously but with a studied nonchalance familiar to anyone who’s ever been 13.

Alas, It isn’t just a coming-of-age story; it’s also a movie about a killer clown. And while its revamped Pennywise, played here by Bill Skarsgård (brother-of- Alexander, son-of- Stellan ), has his moments, his scenes often feel more distracting than essential.

#cneembed: script/video/5981d176be10344717000000.js?muted=1 ||||||

Though King’s novel crosscuts between its characters as children in 1958 and as adults in 1985, the new movie takes advantage of current nostalgia trends by transporting the kids to 1989 and nixing material about the grown-up Losers entirely. (That’s all coming in the sequel .) The shifting timeline doesn’t affect the Losers’ dynamic, but it does force It, which can take the form of the thing that scares each child most, to reach into a new bag of tricks.

When he’s not japing as Pennywise, King’s It loves to impersonate old Universal creatures like Frankenstein’s monster, the Mummy, and the Wolfman. Because those beasts don’t hit the same beats for modern audiences, Muschietti’s It opts instead to transform into a series of grotesque computer-generated spectacles, which are usually punctuated by a wordless appearance from Pennywise himself. While the film sometimes uses suspense as a tool, it more often dives head-first into dramatizing King’s grislier flights of fancy, from a child’s arm being ripped off to a fountain of blood that puts the bucket in Carrie to shame.

Though the filmmakers claim to have relied on practical effects whenever possible, there’s still a C.G.I. slickness here that robs It itself of its urgency. Tim Curry’s version of the clown was all chalky greasepaint and bloodshot eyes and horrific yellow teeth—a creature of fantasy, sure, but a tangible one. By contrast, Skarsgård’s preternaturally baby-smooth face and generic horror-movie growl fail to make much of a lasting impression, especially because he has fewer lines than Curry did. And though some of the film’s bigger set pieces show the same irreverent wit as the Losers’ ensemble scenes—at one point, two of the kids are faced with a set of doors reading “SCARY,” “VERY SCARY,” and “NOT SCARY AT ALL”—those overlong sequences are often dragged down by clichés, all swelling music cues and jump scares and shots of a child walking slowly toward something he should logically be running away from.

By David Canfield

It’s the human monsters in It that end up leaving a more permanent mark, from the adults who consciously ignore the strange and violent happenings in their sleepy Maine town to the father who sexually assaults his child—though the movie decides to soften the mortal bullies who also torment the Losers. (There are a lot of people tormenting the Losers!) In the book and miniseries, those cartoonish thugs are virulently racist and anti-Semitic; in the movie, they’re just sadistic jerks. While the impulse to avoid using racially charged language is understandable, doing so also gives Jacobs’s Mike, the only Loser of color, even less of an arc than the he has in the flashback half of the book—especially since his role as the gang’s chief expositor has also been handed off to another character. Together, these decisions have the unfortunate effect of making Mike the least well-defined member of the group; perhaps the sequel will flesh him out a bit more.

If It were just a flashy horror spectacle, issues like that—and the film’s treatment of Beverly, whose main personality trait is the desire she sparks in others—wouldn’t stick out quite as much. But like King’s best work, the movie wants to be greater than the sum of some cheap scares. Often, thanks to its strong cast and quieter moments, It succeeds in this goal—but there’d be a lot more time for character development if the film didn’t feature quite so many long, frenetic scenes of animated mayhem. As a seminal entry in the analog “kids on bikes” genre , King’s It successfully married real terror (and a magic turtle!) with a lovely meditation on innocence lost. The new It almost makes you wish for a story that ditched the clown for a less literal metaphor.

Positive Messages

Though it takes a while to get everyone convinced and on board with what has to be done, it turns out that teamwork is essential for the characters to survive. Only when they stick together do they have the power to face the clown's attacks.

Positive Role Models

Though the characters are generally lovable and tend to show bravery when the moment truly counts, they're also deeply flawed, rather messed-up adults, and not exactly role models.

Violence & Scariness

Scary clown attacks, biting and chomping children with huge, oversized teeth. Many scary creatures attacking. Lots of blood. In a hate crime, bullies beat and kick a gay character, smashing his face (lots of blood) and throwing him over a bridge. An abusive husband slaps/punches his wife, hits her with belt; she hits back, smashing his head with a blunt object. Character dies via suicide; shown in bathtub with bloody wrists. Characters stabbed in the face and the chest. Decomposed bodies. Extracted and squished heart. Flashback to abusive father. A character uses a gun to "shoot" a younger version of himself in a scary fantasy sequence.

Sex, Romance & Nudity

Both opposite- and same-sex kissing; a woman kisses two men, the first after a mistaken assumption. Brief sex-related talk. Non-sexual nudity includes a man's back and butt as he gets into a bath and a giant, naked CGI woman attacking a character.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that It Chapter Two is the follow-up to the hugely successful It (2017); both films are based on Stephen King 's novel. This one -- which is more centered on adults than kids -- is very long and less scary than the first, but it's definitely entertaining, with great characters and true teamwork. Violence/horror is very strong, with a shocking hate crime (bullies beat up a gay couple), a man abusing his wife (she hits back), and a character dying via suicide, as well as large amounts of blood and terrifying monster attacks. Children are skewered by oversized teeth, characters are stabbed with knives, and a gun is used in a scary fantasy scene. Language is also heavy, with multiple uses of "f--k," "s--t," and more. Characters kiss, and there's some sex-related talk. Adult characters drink socially, and smoking (including by a teen) is shown. A brief "drug trip" sequence involves a hallucinogenic root. Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise; Isaiah Mustafa , James McAvoy , Jessica Chastain , and Bill Hader co-star.

Report this review

Amazing horror packed film, what's the story.

Twenty-seven years have passed since the events of It , and there's evidence of Pennywise's return. So in IT CHAPTER TWO, Mike ( Isaiah Mustafa ), who has stayed in Derry, Maine, calls his old friends to make good on their pact. Five of them -- Bill ( James McAvoy ), Bev ( Jessica Chastain ), Richie ( Bill Hader ), Eddie ( James Ransone ), and Ben ( Jay Ryan ) -- show up, though they don't remember much of what happened back in 1989 and aren't thrilled to discover that they're meant to risk their lives again. Mike tells them that they must find "tokens" from that summer, important objects to be used in a ritual to send Pennywise ( Bill Skarsgård ) away forever. As memories come flooding back, and as the evil clown's attacks become fiercer, it begins to look as if they might not make it -- unless they can stick together.

Is It Any Good?

This nearly three-hour sequel has well-rounded, appealing characters and even some laughs, but it lacks the nerve-rattling scares and appealing simplicity of its 2017 predecessor. It Chapter Two stumbles a bit at the start; it doesn't draw clear lines connecting the younger actors and the older ones, and aside from the spot-on casting of Hader and Ransone and the fact that Chastain is the only woman, it takes a little time to get everyone straight. But then the long sequences of reuniting, balking at danger, and experiencing flashbacks and Pennywise attacks actually succeed at making our lovable Losers come together more like a family.

Teamwork is important here: Every time the group splits up, they grow weaker against Pennywise's scares. And even though Hader steals nearly every scene he's in (just as his younger counterpart, Finn Wolfhard , did in It ), and his juvenile bickering with Ransone is hilarious, each member of the group becomes equally important. The horrors here seem more likely to cause shocked laughter than screams, perhaps because of the more complex adult targets, and It Chapter Two is viscerally a teeny bit less satisfying than its predecessor. But in the end, the characters win the day, and they most certainly turn into folks you'd want on your side when the clowns come creeping in the dark.

it movie 2017 age rating

SEX/NUDITY 4 – A man smells and caresses his teen daughter’s face and hair in their darkened house and squeezes her hand hard; she later finds that he has padlocked her into the house with him and he squeezes her hand and twists her arm, knocks her to the floor, lays on top of her, reaches for his trouser zipper and she kicks him hard in the groin twice to escape. ►  A preteen boy kisses a teen girl and she kisses him back. ►  A preteen boy asks another boy’s mother if he should kiss her and she snorts. A young teen girl buys tampons at a drug store and flirts with an older man, telling him he looks like Clark Kent. Several preteen boys stare at a teenage girl, infatuated, and when she turns around, they avert their eyes. A teenage girl has a reputation as being promiscuous because she and a boy kissed in an elementary school play. A teenage girl tells a teen boy that only one boy ever kissed her and she did not kiss him back. A man accuses his teen daughter of “chasing boys” and that she is only “his girl” (incest implied). A teen girl writes “Loser” on a preteen boy’s arm cast and he changes the S to a V to make “Lover.” ►  Four 12-year-old boys and a girl age 14 stand in their underwear on a cliff to dive into water; the boys wear only briefs and the girl wears a bra that shows cleavage, with underwear.

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 – The demon clown in the film is an ancient shape-shifter that takes the form of a medieval clown with faded red hair, glowing eyes, dirty ragged teeth, and cracked black and white makeup; the dirty white or gray clown suit looks like a medieval rag doll and his voice is wheedling, giggling and sing-song. ►  Three closets in an old house are marked with bloody letters: “Not scary at all,” “Scary,” and “Very scary”; a boy opens the first door and we see half a girl’s body hanging by its wrists and she screams (the waist is bloody and torn). ►  A young boy plays in the rain with a paper boat, runs headlong into a sawhorse and bangs his head, falling into a puddle (no blood is seen) as the boat slips down a storm drain; the boy follows it, leans down to look and an evil slobbering clown appears in the opening and entices the boy to lean forward as the clown opens a slobbering mouth with five rows of sharp teeth, bites off the child’s arm (he screams as blood spurts into the rain water in the street); the boy tries to crawl away, but the clown pulls him into the sewer, filling the street water with blood. ►  A 14-year-old girl hides in a bathroom from her father who tried to rape her (please see the Sex/Nudity category for more details), and she hits him on the head with the toilet tank lid (no blood is seen right away, although we see him lying in a large pool of blood later). A teen boy receives a box in the mail containing his lost switchblade that he uses it to stab a sleeping man in the neck and blood gushes all over the man’s armchair and chest after a struggle. A teen girl stabs a poker into the eye of an evil clown and through its head, which becomes misshapen and it staggers, dances backwards out of a door, and vanishes. A teen boy points a handgun at a cat held in place by his friend until the first boy’s father (a police officer) appears, shouting at the boy; he takes the gun away and fires it three times around the boy’s feet as the boy shudders and cries. ►  A boy feels haunted by a cubist painting of a greenish woman hanging in a den; he replaces the painting when it falls, only to see that the woman in the painting is gone but when he turns around he sees the woman now alive as she charges the camera with five rows of bloody sharp teeth and disappears as the boy screams and runs away. A young boy looks at a burned out house and hears a whisper asking what he is looking for as a man appears with torn clothing, a limp, popping eyes, and rotting flesh and chases and then slobbers on the boy. A teen boy is startle by four decaying zombies as they chase him and charge toward the camera with grimy, rotting faces; the boy runs and is blocked by a cage door, we see his bloody face as he turns and sees an evil clown and the clown charges the camera with an open mouth of five rows of sharp teeth, laughing maniacally as the scene ends (the death of the teen implied). A young teen girl in her bathroom hears children’s small voices and harsh whispering coming from the sink drain and when she looks in a gusher of blood shoots out of it, covering her and the entire inside of the bathroom as she screams and cries; she runs a metal measuring tape into the drain and pulls up blood soaked lengths of hair that grab her around the neck and head in several places, pull her in and then release her (she and others scrub the room later). A teen boy picks up a burning Easter Egg and finds a trail of other eggs; he is chased by a limping headless man with a smoldering neck and runs into an evil clown, who disappears. In a garage, preteens watch as a slide projector begins operating on its own, showing a woman transforming into an evil clown; the clown pushes through a window and roars at the kids with many sharp teeth showing and the kids run, screaming. A clown’s face transforms into a man’s face and a girl jams rebar down his throat as we see some black gore. A cubist image of a woman chews on the face of a boy, using several rows of sharp white and green teeth and when the creature backs away we see several bloody streaks on the boy’s face, but no holes. ►  Four preteen boys enter an abandoned house filled with leaves, cobwebs, debris and a rat that sits on a piano keyboard; one boy finds a “missing child” poster of himself and panics, a woman lies crying in a bedroom until something pulls her out of the frame as she screams, a door closes itself and a boy is trapped in a hallway where the floor falls away, and a hand grabs his shoulder and he turns to see a slobbering leper who had chased him previously; the boy falls through the hole to the floor (we see his arm broken at an unnatural angle and another boy sets it with a loud snap causing the injured boy to shout in pain), another boy is trapped in a room that is full of clown dolls from small to adult-size and disembodied voices laugh and lights flash, and bloody letters spell out “Found” on the inside of a coffin lid that opens by itself and we see a doll of the boy lying inside; an evil clown ejects from the coffin and the boy screams as the clown charges toward the camera, disappears, a boy pops out of a dirty mattress and vomits black gunk embedded with glowing embers, and the clown climbs out of an old refrigerator and grabs a boy; the clown laughs in the screaming boy’s face, pretends to eat his arm, and then disappears through a doorway. A girl lying on a floor is awakened by drops of blood falling on her; she sees a stage door, which reads “Pennywise, Dancing Clown,” and it opens to reveal an evil clown dancing against a background of a furnace-like fire; the clown jumps out and grabs the teen girl by the throat, opens his mouth wide to show 10 rows of sharp teeth and her eyes become milky as she goes into a trance and levitates above the floor. Two boys struggle with a sheep-killing gun and one boy fires in close-up, missing the other boy’s head; one boy kicks the other boy away and down into a deep well where an evil clown appears, giggling. ►  A shadowy figure appears in a doorway and bloody footprints appear on a floor leading into a dark cellar, while something short squeals and dashes across the screen in the kitchen; a boy follows the tracks and sees the ghost of his dead little brother in the cellar as it says, “Come with me and you’ll float too,” and an evil clown rises from the dark, bloody water, charges toward the boy, falls, and slides off-screen as the boy runs. ►  A preteen boy takes a sheep-killing gun and stalks the ghost of a young boy with one arm, they argue and he shoots the ghost between the eyes, the ghost becomes an evil clown and convulses, and the boy shoots him in the head (we see a black hole and some black mist belch upwards from the hole); the clown rises and throws several youths against walls as they struggle, the clown chokes a boy and says he will let the others go if he can keep him and the youths surround the clown, beating him with baseball bats and lengths of rebar, his arms change to long bladed insect legs that stab the concrete, octopus legs shoot out of his mouth and tentacles pop out of his head as blood bubbles float from his mouth and he vomits a lot of black gunk all over the boys; he falls into a well, holds on to the rim, and a boy strikes his head with a rebar rod causing the head to pop open and black smoke erupts before the clown begins to crumble and fall to the well bottom. ►  A teen boy points a bolt gun at the head of a sheep obscured by a pen wall and fires (the death of the sheep implied). A teen boy points a bolt gun between the eyes of a sheep and cannot pull the trigger until his grandfather snatches the weapon away and points it at the sheep, which is now off-screen, killing it. A teen boy rides his bike into the alley behind a slaughter house and he hallucinates a door opening and a dozen charred hands reaching out, while smoke and fire seep through the door as it opens to reveal a clown in the background, hanging from a meat hook and waving. ►  A tall stand of debris and trash in a sewer includes about 100 missing and dead children floating around the top; the children float down from the structure later but we do not see what happens to them. A teen boy stomps on the head of another boy and blood appears on the victim’s mouth as an evil clown waves a bloody dismembered arm at the teens from the bushes. A teen boy hits a younger boy on the head with a shovel, knocking him down with some blood on his forehead. Several middle school students start a rock throwing fight where several people are struck in the forehead with rocks and fall (we see one teen boy has a little blood on his forehead) as the younger kids run away. Four teenage bullies beat an overweight younger boy, slap his stomach, make kissing sounds with their mouths, belch, fart, and carve a bloody H into his belly before he manages to get free and dives over the rail of a bridge into leaves and dirt to escape; one teen chases him down a shallow stream as the younger boy’s shirt becomes bloody; other boys later try to bandage the wound but one boy keeps insisting that another boy “suck the wound” (this does not happen). A teen boy uses a cigarette lighter and a can of spray paint to create a large flame that he holds near a younger boy, who screeches in fear. Girl bullies dump a bucket of dirty toilet bowl water on top of a girl hiding in a washroom stall. In several scenes, from four to seven middle school students walk through dirty sewer water filled with debris and in one scene, they find a bloated body and a head that is missing half its flesh, showing some bone. A clown in a sewer slobbers on a small child. Several teen boys drive past a younger teen boy, they stop and one boy tosses a cigarette butt at the younger one. A teen boy walks through dark sewers, creating a tall flame three times. A preteen boy finds a teen girl in a trance and kisses her, breaking the spell as she gasps loudly. ►  Several preteen boys and a young teen girl arm themselves with flashlights, rusty iron fence spikes, and a sheep-killing bolt gun as they enter a house where they find a well in the basement that leads to large sewer pipes with dirty water when they climb down a rope. ►  Several middle school students have small cuts and bruises on their faces. Several middle school students use a broken bottle to each cut a palm, and grimace (we see blood flow) as they hold hands in a circle and vow to destroy a killer clown if he appears in the future. Rain water drips from a ceiling onto a coloring page on a boy’s bed, making red pencil run like blood. ►  An evil clown tells a teen boy to “Kill everyone. A boy reads about tragedies involving the deaths of children. Grainy news clippings show body bags and mention young people disappearing. We read that a boy was found dead at age 15 and a girl disappeared at age 14. A teen boy tells friends that their town has six times the disappearances as the national average. We hear that a teenage boy’s parents died in a fire. We hear that a missing girl is probably decayed and lying in a sewer (we never see her). Several teen boys argue. A preteen boy enters a room and sees bloody letters on a wall that read, “You die if you try.” A man belittles his 12-year-old son for not memorizing enough Hebrew scripture. A woman lies to her preteen son, telling him that she is sick to keep him home several times (please see the Substance Use category for more details). A woman rudely tells her son’s friends to stay away from him, calling a girl in the group a sexually suggestive name. A man and his young son yell at each other. A grandfather berates his teenage grandson, embarrassing him. A frightened group of preteens argue loudly. A teen girl blows pink bubble gum bubbles in close-up and is rude to a preteen boy.

SUBSTANCE USE – A preteen boy has a table full of pill bottles and inhalers and uses the inhaler in two scenes, a pharmacy assistant sitting in front of several shelves full of pill bottles tells a preteen boy that all his medicines are placebos, a preteen boy confronts his mother and throws and breaks a pill bottle on the floor (accusing her of telling him that he is sick to keep him inside the house), and a preteen boy drops a pill box and scatters pills of different colors on pavement.

Clowns are creepy no matter what. We can all agree on that, right?

But Pennywise, the dancing clown who tracks down and torments the children of small-town Maine in “It,” is deeply unsettling. At least, he is in the latest incarnation of Stephen King ’s iconic novel. Infamously, Tim Curry ’s take on the character in the 1990 TV miniseries version was so over-the-top, it was laughable—not that you’re looking for understatement in your homicidal clowns.

But what Bill Skarsgard does with the role works well precisely because he doesn’t appear to be laboring so hard to frighten us. He doesn’t vamp it up. He’s coy—he toys with these kids—making his sudden bursts of insane clown hostility that much more shocking.

Even more effective than the horror elements of Argentine director Andy Muschietti ’s adaptation is the unexpected humor he reveals in the story—and, ultimately, the humanity. Finding that combination of tones is such a tricky balance to pull off: the brief lightening of a tense moment with a quick quip, or an earnest monologue in the face of extreme danger. But “It” makes that work nearly every time, thanks to its perfectly calibrated performances from a well-chosen cast.

The kid-bonding parts of the movie are actually stronger than the creepy-clown parts, even though images of that freakish, frilly fiend will be the ones that keep you awake at night. Led by “ Midnight Special ” star Jaeden Lieberher —whose everyman (everykid?) appeal grows with each film—and including a star-making performance from Sophia Lillis as the crew’s lone female member, it’s mostly unknown actors who comprise the film’s so-called “Losers Club.” But their characters are distinctly drawn, each with a fleshed-out backstory that explains why their fears make them so vulnerable to Pennywise’s attacks.

Unlike King’s novel and the 1990 original “It,” the screenplay from Chase Palmer , Cary Fukunaga (the acclaimed writer-director of “ Sin Nombre ” and “ Beasts of No Nation ”) and Gary Dauberman doesn’t jump back and forth in time. It moves the time frame to 1988-89 and sticks with our core group of seven kids while they’re still adolescent misfits, which grounds their story and makes it more immersive. (It also surely will draw comparisons to the Netflix series “Stranger Things,” another supernatural mystery set in small-town America in the 1980s. The nostalgia factor is strong for those of us who grew up then, too.)

Muschietti’s version begins as the book does, though, with innocent, six-year-old Georgie Denbrough ( Jackson Robert Scott ) chasing his toy boat as it sails down a gutter and into a storm drain on a rainy afternoon in fictional Derry, Maine. He’s especially fond of the boat because it was a gift from his beloved older brother, Lieberher’s Bill, a smart, skinny kid who struggles with a stutter. That’s why his choice to chat with Pennywise—who just happens to pop up in the sewer with the boat and a smile—leads to his tragic demise. (Muschietti’s cutaways to a cat who witnesses everything from a nearby porch are chilling; he showed that same delicate mastery of mood with his underappreciated 2013 horror film “ Mama ,” starring Jessica Chastain .)

But Bill insists Georgie has just gone missing, as such an unusually large number of Derry children have over the years. He enlists his posse of similarly bullied, outcast pals to help him get to the bottom of this lingering mystery: wisecracking trash-talker Richie ( Finn Wolfhard , who also happens to be in “Stranger Things”); wimpy mama’s boy Eddie ( Jack Dylan Grazer ); nervous rabbi’s son Stanley ( Wyatt Oleff ); heavyset new kid Ben ( Jeremy Ray Taylor ); and the tough-but-kind Beverly (Lillis). Eventually, the home-schooled farmhand Mike ( Chosen Jacobs ), who’s suffered racial attacks as the only black kid in town, makes them a team of seven.

Despite the many terrifying moments they endure in their quest—scenes that will leave you trembling and giggling at once—“It” is even more powerful in the warm, easy camaraderie between its young stars. Certainly you could view it as a straight-up horror flick, but the underlying allegory of these characters facing their deepest fears as they enter adulthood gives the movie more emotional heft—a bit of bittersweet within the suffering.

These kids have all languished on the fringes—hence the “Losers Club” tag they wear as a badge of honor—whether it’s because of an overbearing mother, an abusive father or a devastating family loss. But they’re also all on the cusp of something. Pennywise knows what frightens them in this precarious state of flux and tries to use that devious, supernatural ability to lead kids to their doom. Confronting those fears rather than running away is what just might save them.

Tonally, “It” feels like a throwback to great King adaptations of yore—particularly “Stand By Me,” with its ragtag band of kids on a morbid adventure, affecting bravado and affectionately hassling each other to mask their true jitters. Wolfhard in particular has great comic timing as the profane Richie. Technically, Muschietti shows some glimmers of early Spielberg, too—the low camera angles, the images of kids on bikes pedaling furiously in a pack, the overall mix of wonder and danger.

“It” could have used a bit of tightening as it builds toward its climax, though. While the imagery is undeniably harrowing and even poignant in the action-packed third act, some of it feels dragged out and redundant. And because the final confrontation takes place within a dark, underground lair, it’s sometimes difficult to tell exactly what’s going on, despite the impressive visual effects on display as Pennywise unleashes his full powers on his young attackers. (That’s one of many ways in which the new “It” is a vast improvement over its low-tech predecessor.)

Not to burst your balloon, though, but the closing credits suggest this may not be the last we’ve seen of Pennywise after all.

Peacock's Based on a True Story is a Frustrating but Promising True-Crime Parody

Screen Rant

As a coming of age parable, it succeeds at being both horrifying and emotionally-resonant, even while adapting only half of king's original story..

Adapted from the best-selling Stephen King novel of the same name (first published in 1986), the movie version of  IT spent a number of years in development under the watchful eye of filmmaker Cary Fukunaga ( Beasts of No Nation ) before ultimately making it to the big screen with Andy Muschietti (the director of  Mama ) at the helm. The change in directors was no doubt of concern to fans of both King's source material and the horror/thriller author's body of work in general, given that movie/TV adaptations of King's literature have (to put it simply) a spotty record, at best. Despite its drawn out pre-production process and change in creative personnel, IT  is one of the better cinematic interpretations of King's writing and certainly the best produced in modern times. As a coming of age parable, IT succeeds at being both horrifying and emotionally-resonant, even while adapting only half of King's original story.

On a rainy September day in the city of Derry, Maine, circa 1988, young Georgie Denbrough (Jackson Robert Scott) mysteriously goes missing after he sets off playing with a paper boat that his older brother, Bill (Jaeden Lieberher), made for him. Several months later, at the start of the summer of 1989 (and the end of the school year), Bill sets out with his friends - who together form a group known as The Losers' Club - to try and find his younger sibling at long last, despite his parents having already decided that Georgie is dead and gone.

However, in the process of searching for Georgie, The Losers' Club - along with new recruits in the forms of the socially-stigmatized Beverly (Sophia Lillis), home-schooled Mike (Chosen Jacob) and new kid Ben (Jeremy Ray Taylor) - discover the terrifying truth about Derry: that it is the home of a seemingly immortal creature that can shape-shift and feeds on children by taking on the form of one Pennywise the Dancing Clown (Bill Skarsgård). When the Losers come to realize that Pennywise gains strength by feeding on their own fears, it falls to the young outsiders to band together and battle their demons from both within and from the outside world, if they are to stay alive.

In terms of narrative, IT  is more of a troubling and creepy fantasy allegory along the lines of Muschietti's directorial debut Mama than a "scary" piece of filmmaking. In that respect, though, the movie is faithful in spirit to King's source material, despite making some significant changes to the text - in particular, updating the time period in which the members of the Losers' Club are preteens from the 1950s to the 1980s. Muschietti isn't operating on quite the same level yet as the best modern mainstream horror directors (see James Wan, David F. Sandberg) when it comes to delivering scares through tension-fueled sequencing and/or building up to the spooky moments (e.g. jump scares). However, because it offers both more overtly disturbing imagery and narrative substance than many other studio horror films nowadays (even the R-Rated ones), IT  manages to be more "horrifying" than its peers, despite being less "scary."

The IT script, which is credited to Fukunaga and his writing partner Chase Palmer, as well as Gary Dauberman ( Annabelle: Creation ), explores the same themes of childhood grief and trauma as King's original novel does, as well as the timely-as-ever idea that evil must be actively confronted through mutual cooperation and trust, lest it be allowed to flourish. Muschietti's film adaptation does justice by these elements from King's novel, thanks in no small part to the charismatic and compelling young actors who bring The Losers' Club's various personalities to life. Between determined Bill (Jaeden Lieberher), kindly Beverly (Sophia Lillis), wise-guy Ritchie ( Stranger Things ' Finn Wolfhard), intellectual Ben (Jeremy Ray Taylor), courageous Mike (Chosen Jacobs), practical Stanley (Wyatt Oleff) and hypochondriac Eddie (Jack Dylan Grazer), the Losers bring both heart and humor to the proceedings here, making it easy to cheer for them as they battle terrors of both the fantastical and everyday variety during their adventure.

While IT  explores the pain and suffering of The Losers' Club with enough depth (some, like Bill and Beverly, more than others) to make their experiences and the characters feel grounded, it has less success at making both the adults that populate Derry and borderline-psychotic local bully Henry Bowers (Nicholas Hamilton) feel equally three-dimensional. Because  IT  only hints at the effect that its namesake has had on the town of Derry and the people who have long resided there (including, Beverly's own abusive father), the human villains in the film come off as being kitschy - as though they've been lifted straight from an actual 1980s coming of age movie, themselves. Pennywise's backstory and the mythology behind the creature isn't revealed in full here either (more on that later), but Bill Skarsgård nevertheless succeeds in leaving his mark on the role by putting a radically different (read: more chilling and inhuman) spin on the monster than Tim Curry did with his memorable performance as "The Dancing Clown" in the 1990s IT TV miniseries. However, whereas Curry succeeded in being a scene-stealer in the '90s small screen version of IT , the opposite is true for the movie, e.g. Skarsgård's Pennywise is overshadowed by the Losers' Club and their personal struggles.

Both Skarsgård's Pennywise and the setting of IT (2017) are, naturally, more polished in their presentation and design compared to their counterparts in the '90s TV adaptation. Thanks to costume designer Janie Bryant ( Mad Men ) and production designer Claude Paré ( The Age of Adaline ), the 1980s backdrop of IT is convincing and manages to include nods to the pop culture of the time in a more organic fashion that, arguably, something such as  Stranger Things does. Cinematographer Chung-hoon Chung ( Stoker ) likewise uses strikingly dark colors and shadows to create slick horror movie scenery (including, the sewers beneath Derry and the infamous Neibolt Street house) that looks far better and bigger than the film's modest budget might suggest. That being said, the movie admittedly has mixed success when it comes to using CGI to realize Pennywise's fantastical characteristics and the creations that he conjures from the Losers' imagination. Like Mama , IT is most effective when it applies its digital effects with a more subtle touch.

It's no secret that IT only adapts half of King's original novel for the big screen (as was mentioned earlier) - and though the film by and large works as a standalone narrative, it noticeably leaves a few smaller story threads dangling and questions unanswered, for IT: Chapter Two (as the sequel presumably will be titled) to pick up. The decision to split up King's massive source material into two separate parts was a smart call, since it allows Muschietti to deliver a solid horror filmgoing experience here - without having to sacrifice much of the substance of King's book in the process - along with the promise of a second installment in the IT  film saga that should only enrich its predecessor (and vice versa). Sine the film mostly lives up to the current expectations that are surrounding it, there's fair reason to think that IT: Chapter Two , with Muschietti back at the helm, will float equally well.

IT  is now playing in U.S. theaters nationwide. It is 135 minutes long and is Rated R for violence/horror, bloody images, and for language.

Scary clown movie not skimping on "violence, horror and bloody images" as It gets an R-rating in the US

Beep beep, horror fans!

Pennywise the Clown from IT

One of the most anticipated horror movies of the year remains one of the most anticipated horror movies of the year, as scary clown movie It – based on Stephen King's terrifying novel – has bagged itself an R-rating in the US.

This is honestly is music to our ears. While there have been plenty of excellent, creepy slow-burn chillers that don't need an R-rating, It is not one of them.

The Losers Club, It remake

The movie will focus on the children of Derry, Maine, who encounter an ancient evil who likes to take the form of truly terrifying Pennywise the Dancing Clown (played by Bill Skarsgå rd).

The kids – self-titled gang The Losers Club – will be played by Jaeden Lieberher (from Midnight Special and The Book of Henry ), Finn Wolfhard (from Stranger Things ) and less well-known youngsters Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Sophia Lillis.

preview for It (2017) First teaser trailer

Mama 's Andres Muschetti is the director – the movie is finished and Stephen King himself has been treated to a cheeky screening, reporting back that producers have done a "wonderful job" and saying it "succeeds beyond my expectations".

A UK rating hasn't yet been announced but we'd expect this to mean it'll be a 15 certificate over here, which we're happy with.

It will open in UK and US cinemas on September 8.

It’s a surprisingly brilliant adaptation of Stephen King’s novel and it will likely peak the curiosity of younger viewers and teens…it’s about kids and its genre is “hip” right now. One wouldn’t need to watch 5 minutes of the film to realize that this is not a movie suitable for children. Extreme, excessive violence Scary, vivid imagery Abundant profanity mostly from children Sexual situations including rape and implied incest

I wish they’d somehow come up with a ratings system to tell parents what is suitable for their children lol.

A full 27 years after Tim Curry terrified audiences as Pennywise the clown, a new generation is being introduced to him - or "it". Here's what we know about the 2017 remake of the movie It...

 Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise in the 2017 movie It

When was It released and what's it about?

Horror movie It hit UK cinemas on September 8, 2017.

The film is based on a 1986 Stephen King novel of the same name, about a malevolent creature who manifests as a clown - which inspired a 1990 two-part series for US TV.

It tells the story of a group of seven misfit school kids - known as the Losers Club - in the town of Derry, Maine, who are separately terrorised by a strange figure, who calls itself Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

The youngsters try to work out what the clown is, and whether it's connected to the disappearance of several children in the town, including the younger brother of gang member Bill.

Tilda Swinton was offered the role of Pennywise for the remake but her schedule was full, and Brit actor Will Poulter dropped out of the project after being attached to the part.

The creepy role was eventually given to 26-year-old Swedish actor Bill Skarsgard, brother of Alexander, who "blew the socks off" producers during his audition, beating main rival Hugo Weaving.

 Tim Curry played Pennywise in the original TV miniseries

The seven kids in the Losers Club will be played by Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jaeden Lieberher, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs and Jeremy Ray Taylor.

The 2017 movie is the first of two, with the second set 27 years after the events of this one.

It has been rated R in the US and is rated 15 in the UK.

As huge fans of the 80s TV show, the Duffer Brothers - creators of Netflix series Stranger Things - wanted to direct this big screen version, but were considered too inexperienced at the time it was planned, a whopping eight years ago.

When did the original come out and who played Pennywise?

The 1990 original was a two-part TV series that aired on ABC.

British actor Tim Curry, known for the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Clue, played Pennywise the Dancing Clown, and it's thought of as one of the best performances of his career.

Like the new movies, the miniseries broke the story up into two parts, the first half focussing on the children when they were young and the second how they return to the town years later.

As it's been 27 years since the TV series, the movie remake comes at the perfect time.

This is because in the book, the creature "It" returns to the town to feed on its children every 27 years - and if you add up the numbers in the release date, 8/9/2017, you get 27.

Bill Skarsgard was also born the year that the original It came out.

Have clown sightings been happening in real life?

Starting in 2016, sightings of creepy clowns - often captured on video - have become endemic in the States and all over the the UK.

A mum-of-six claimed a knife-wielding clown tried to snatch her baby in Huddersfield , and other bizarre occurrences have haunted Leicestershire  roundabouts and universities , and on the Wirral, which led to the closure of a school .

There was also a huge surge in clown-related Childline calls in the UK around the time .

And now a year later, ahead of the It movie's release and Halloween, US cops have warned that there will be more clown sightings.

But it's also happening in the UK as a clown was spotted in Chelmsford, hiding in the bushes of a park before jumping out at people .

The clowns themselves are usually explained away as scaremongers looking to terrify people for fun, and over a dozen arrests were made last year in relation to the sightings.

If you see a so-called killer clown you should call the authorities.

All the Transformers movies, ranked

From giant robot fights to ultra-cheesy relationship dynamics, the  Transformers franchise has brought spectacle to the big screen for decades now. The franchise, which just welcomed its eighth film, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts , has brought in billions at the box office, making it a modern-day action hit that won’t fail to be remembered — for better or worse.

7. Transformers: The Last Knight (2017)

6. transformers: revenge of the fallen (2009), 5. transformers: age of extinction (2014), 4. transformers (2007), 3. the transformers: the movie (1986), 2. bumblebee (2018), 1. transformers: dark of the moon (2011).

Even before action aficionado Michael Bay transformed the Hasbro toys into live-action superheroes, Transformers had been a part of popular culture for years. The franchise’s immense success has allowed it to grow considerably past its origins as a giant-robot-versus-giant-robot showdown. Its expansive mythology is set to grow even further in  Rise of the Beasts , which will pit the Autobots against Unicron, a villainous planet-eating Transformer.

If we’re being truly honest with ourselves, the  Transformers series has never been renowned for its high quality. However, that doesn’t mean that the series is devoid of any delights. The low moments are really, really low, but the highs can, sometimes, come together for great, epic, and even weirdly moving filmgoing experiences. Each of these movies, even if they fail by nearly every metric of film critique, has at least one moment that makes viewers want to fist pump the air. And what else does anybody really want from a movie about giant high-tech alien robots?

Transformers has had its valleys and its mountains, from confusing plots to epic action. Now, as Transformers: Rise of the Beasts  roars into theaters, let’s take a look at how each film stacks up.

The crown for the worst  Transformers  movie goes to 2017’s The Last Knight , which is as remarkably confusing and ridiculous as ever. The film, the fourth direct sequel to the original 2007  Transformers , tries to ask the question: What if Optimus Prime went rogue? When Optimus goes in search of his creator, the rest of the world — and its remaining Autobots — are left to fight the ongoing Transformer war. In order to save the world, Mark Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager must team up with Bumblebee and friends to uncover the Transformers’ past.

The Last Knight  is as forgettable as it is ridiculous. The movie runs nearly two-and-a-half hours, and you really feel every … single … minute. It’s tough to sit through, and it left me scratching my head when I wasn’t laughing at its sheer ridiculousness. The Last Knight feels like one long retcon, an uninspired and uninteresting mess that would rather explain the mythology of the Witwicky family than create some kick-ass action scenes. But hey, at least Megatron looks cool.

The first sequel to the original  Transformers  movie shows the first real glimpse of what this franchise will become: a weirdly mythologized saga of robot aliens that has a few really cool action scenes.  Revenge of the Fallen  sees Shia LeBeouf’s Sam Witwicky and Megan Fox’s Mikaela Banes return to the fray when an ancient Decepticon threat resurfaces. The 2009 flick is bigger and more ambitious than its predecessor, but it’s also way more bloated.

Although  Revenge of the Fallen has a couple great, adrenaline-pumping action scenes, the vast majority of the movie feels like an uninspired rehashing of the first movie’s plot. It’s predictable and uninventive. The characters — human or robot — fail to connect on a substantial level, and the movie’s villain is as uninteresting as he is weird to look at.

Age of Extinction served as the franchise’s soft reboot in 2014. Instead of bringing back Shia LeBeouf and whatever girlfriend he had at that point, Bay instead chose to turn the clock back a bit. The movie follows a new human protagonist, Mark Wahlberg’s Cade Yeager, years after the events of Dark of the Moon . Transformers are being hunted down, as humanity has turned against them due to the Battle of Chicago. Now, a greedy company led by Stanley Tucci gets in over its head when it attempts to create Transformium, a programmable metal that can turn into anything.

In all honesty, most of these movies live in a place in memory that’s entirely foggy. Most of them kind of blend together, with only a few moments really being remembered.  Age of Extinction is one of the biggest culprits of that forgettable nature. Aside from Optimus’s electric final fight with Lockdown, dinosaur Transformers, and Tucci’s weirdly hilarious performance, I remember exceedingly little about  Age of Extinction . On rewatch, it’s clear why that’s the case.

The original 2007  Transformers is a mixed bag. At some points, it’s a fun, oddly character-focused action flick with some impressive VFX and explosions galore. At other times, it’s almost startling at how rarely  Transformers focuses on the actual Transformers. Some people might forget that the vast majority of this movie is about Sam, Mikaela, and the team trying to crack the Decepticons’ code. It’s more of an alien invasion movie than an adrenaline action flick.

Nevertheless,  Transformers still possesses some of the series’ most intimate and memorable moments, from Sam and Mikaela’s budding relationship to Bumblebee’s introduction. Bay’s touch can be seen in specks throughout the movie, but it’s easy to wish there was more: more action, more robots, and more explosions.

Although it’s likely the most forgotten movie featuring the titular robots, The Transformers: The Movie is completely different from the live-action films that came after it. Nearly everything about The Transformers: The Movie is goofy in the best way. From Megatron turning into a pistol to a bonkers soundtrack, it makes sense why this animated film, which first came out in 1986, has become a sort of cult classic.

The Transformers: The Movie is a fun, silly Transformers adventure outfitted with all sorts of characters. The movie follows the Autobots as they fight against Megatron and the Decepticons, as well as the arrival of the planet-eating Transformer Unicron, which causes all hell to break lose. The movie takes bold swings, and it’s a dated, yet wonderfully campy gem. Oh, and here’s a fun fact: Orson Welles voices Unicron. Yes, the man who created Citizen Kane voices a giant planet Transformer. You just can’t make this stuff up, folks.

Bumblebee is a fascinating object in the Transformers library. Instead of continuing on with the original timeline, 2018’s Bumblebee  takes a step back and focuses instead on a personal story of friendship. It’s more of a family movie than any other before it, one that cares less about mythology or robot fights and more about how a lost soul finds connection in their car.

The movie, set in 1987, follows Hailee Steinfeld’s Charlie, a young woman trying to find her place in the world. Meanwhile, a broken and battered Bumblebee crash-lands on Earth, where he is found by Charlie. Together, the new friends must work together to fight off incoming Decepticons. Bumblebee functions most effectively as a coming-of-age movie, resulting in a movie with more heart than any other in the series. It’s also notable that the movie’s visual style for the Transformers is refreshingly new, one that simultaneously mimics and evolves the look of the original animation.

While it’s debatable if any of the movies on this list are “good” movies, I will always contend that  Transformers: Dark of the Moon  is a legitimately great action movie. The previous two movies in the franchise at this point both had cool moments, but they rarely just say “screw it” and turn up the dial to 15.

Previously, I discussed how each of these movies has “a moment” that really encapsulates why they are worth watching. For  Dark of the Moon , that “moment” is essentially the entire final hour. While the rest of the movie is fine and does what it needs to do, once Dark of the Moon gets to Chicago, it kicks into a third gear. Bay absolutely lets loose on his filmmaking, going balls to the wall in set piece after set piece.

The action is unbelievable, and it’s everything one would ever want from a  Transformers movie. Giant robots slicing each other’s heads off? Check. Shia LaBeouf absolutely hamming it up and screaming at the top of his lungs? Check. Optimus Prime — and Michael Bay — going absolute Sicko Mode? Check and check! Dark Side of the Moon  is sick, and that’s all a  Transformers movie really needs to be.

Almost anyone could have guessed that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was going to be a success, especially since its predecessor, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was wildly popular with fans and critics alike on its way to winning the Oscar for best animated film. But nobody predicted that Across the Spider-Verse would have a monster $120 million opening weekend on its way to potentially being the biggest hit of the summer.

The third movie, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, is already well into production and it should be ready for release next year. But what's beyond Beyond the Spider-Verse? Only the executive producers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, can answer that question. And they did, in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight. Will there be a fourth Spider-Verse movie?

Wolfhard in particular has great comic timing as the profane Richie.
