The film 'It' tosses out the most powerful part of Stephen King's novel

That being said, there are a few flaws, but overall, I had a terrifyingly good time.

Coming from Warner Bros. These kids are all outsiders in their home town for one reason or another, and end up having to rely on each other when Pennywise starts preying on the town's children.

To be sure, a sequel, or, as its being called, a Chapter Two, was nearly never in doubt even if the involvement of some of the creative players' was. Writer Gary Dauberman explained why in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying that it was something that wouldn't have translated well to the big screen. He was also in a 2015 remake of "Poltergeist", which featured even more clown dolls. More on the story below. The transition from one horror scene to another, usage of some rock music, infusing humour in between, making us fall in love with the characters and doing this all in a horror film is something Andy nailed. "I feel somewhat optimistic that we'll get to make it, but there's been no official decision".

As of right now, most of the cast of this sequel is unknown. The boys of "the Losers Club" are all vying for the attention of the only girl in the gang, Beverly, played by a newcomer named Sophia Lillis, who stands out as one of the best characters in the movie.

Pennywise, the shape-shifting clown from Stephen King's It, is really scary. When the movie appeared on box office tracking sites in mid-August, it looked as if it was heading for a debut of more than $50 million.

While many of us were skeptical about It during its production - they lost director Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) early on due to creative differences and the first images that were released of Pennywise were laughably bad - the movie has fully redeemed itself. The kids, each with their own problems in tow, follow Bill's lead into an underworld below their hometown of Derry, seeking answers, and revenge, after the disappearance of Bill's younger brother Georgie.

Why the kids would ever want such a creepy looking doll remains a mystery, but they probably got rid of it after the thing attacked poor Robbie.

Made for only $35M, audiences are now officially getting a Chapter 2 after helping change the landscape of current cinema.
