This new feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name takes a much different approach than the 1990 TV mini-series. The dark and gritty tone make it one of the creepiest movies of the last several years.
If you are unfamiliar with the story by now, there is something wrong with you. Basically, a group of kids band together in an attempt to stop a horrific clown creature from terrorizing and eventually murdering them.
The acting is considerably good given that the majority of the cast is child actors. The writing manages to solidify and condense the first half of a very large book. It never felt rushed or improperly paced.
If you like clowns and being scared, you will really enjoy this movie.
