Who else is excited for this? The original, although extremely dated and cheesy as hell, will always hold a special place in my heart, but this new adaptation looks absolutely amazing. I saw the 4 minute preview that is being shown in theaters with the new Annabelle and holy shit is all I can say! Penny wise is absolutely terrifying!

Yeah I can't wait. I'm currently rereading It for about the 5th time in preparation. About 200 pages to go.

I really don't want to get my hopes up though.

I have everything crossed, the trailers/footage released so far look great!

Still think this needs to be done as a mini series ala GOT keeping the 50's parts in. This new one looks ok but...i dunno.

The book is still my favorite of all time and an incredibly awesome read

I purchased the book and began reading it (for the first time) and while it is extremely well written, (it's Stephen King, duh lol) - it's just so...damn...long... and I just can't bring myself to continue reading, as much as I want to. But I still can't get over how amazing this movie looks. And for those that have seen the 4 minute sneak preview with Georgie and Pennywise...holy shit. You should know exactly what I'm talking about. This Pennywise is going to be absolutely terrifying.

Yeah saw it opening night. Absolutely loved it. Do wish there were a few more particular scenes from the book but I think they did it justice.

Won't give anything away, but it's definitely worth a watch on the big screen.

Saw it at a midnight screening Thurs/Fri and like Warren loved it... think it's a good adaptation, the cast are great and it's genuinely scary in places... Tim Curry is a better Pennywise (imho) but this one is a played a little differently so it doesn't detract from the film.

Looking forward to Chapter 2!

I loved it. I never read the book but I loved how they had the conflict between the nerds and the rough boys and around the clown thing. Love a horror story that has layers like that. I loved the bondage between a brother looking for his missing brother and not giving up on finding him alive. I loved the girl character in this movie. I thought she did a GREAT job. Great dialogue throughout and the clown was as creepy as could be!

IT was good, but definitely not great. Very excessive in multiple ways and a bit too heavy handed. Also, it's not very scary. Oh and it's marred by some dodgy CGI. The kids are great though (especially Sophia Lillis and Jeremy Ray Taylor).

And in regards to "that" scene which they removed from the film, I'm glad it wasn't included but I can kind of see where it's coming from. Granted, it didn't need to be so excessive (a simple kiss would have sufficed) but it's not completely out of left field.

Overall, a C+ for me.

Just saw IT last night and absolutely loved it! I was genuinely creeped out by Pennywise and some of the scenes were legitimately disturbing, one of the very few horror movies that has actually managed to scare me! Also, just found out this is now expected to make over $100 million this weekend alone, well deserved and well worth all the hype, IMO. Studios need to take notes because this is how horror should be done. A+ from me. This one is going to be very hard to beat in terms of actual scares/horror.

Not sure if this is in response to what I said but just to be clear, I donít think that scene needed to be in the film, I'm not sure it even needed to be in the book.

BOOK SPOILERS Ė maybe

I meant more of Patrick Hockstetter's scenes, that was some creepy shit. Also a slightly more developed relationship between Beverly and her father, especially the chase scene between the two of them. The door into Itís lair would have been a nice touch as well and some of Itís other kills that are written as interludes in the book.

I also do kind of wish they kept the original time period.

Other than that, not much to complain about.
