It: Chapter Two is raking in ticket sales in theatres, and both the director and the man behind the monster clown are thinking of another installment.
I think some people were tricked by the first It film, in a way. Although there is certainly horror abound in the It tale, it’s just as much a character study as it is a “scary” one.

Thanks to the reliably unreliable nature of nostalgia and memory, everyone seems to think that Stephen King’s horror epic It already has a worthy cinematic adaptation. That’s not quite true. Sure, Tim Curry’s performance as the ultimate demonic clown Pennywise is iconic, but the TV mini-series containing it? That’s a toned down and often tone … Read more
Very soon Stephen King’s horror epic It will slither into cinemas and the nightmares of several generations of viewers. The horror legend’s epic tale of confronting childhood trauma and fears deserves the adoring two-part adaptation coming our way and if the trailers aren’t misleading (and when are trailers ever misleading, am I right?) then Mama … Read more
