    The early reactions are overwhelmingly positive. Let’s see if that transfers to Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes.

    It is released on September 8th.

    i’m actually really excited for it. Always loved that book, and Pennywise is a great villain.

    Bill Skarsgard and Finn Wolfhard have been getting spotlighted in the early reactions.

    Most excited for it to put AHS: New-Crap-Season-Vaguely-About-Clown-Cults to shame

    Saw it earlier this week at a preview screening. Not a fan of horror, but I LOVED It. It’s a scarier version of Stand By Me, and I would definitely put it in my top 10 of the year so far.

    Just watched it and for me Sophia Lillis was the standout among an outstanding cast.

    Bill skarsgard blew Tim currys performance out of the water

    I think they are too different to compare. Curry’s was meant to be more campy and silly, but also scary. Skarsgard was excellent too, but was meant to be just scary.

    She was my favorite too! I’d love to see her get more work as a reward for her wonderful performance in It. 🙂

    Bill Skarsgard was better than Tim Curry for sure

    Just got back from a packed screening, and I loved this. I have always been extremely partial to coming-of-age films, and this is a great one disguised as a horror film. It has a lot more thought put into it than your average horror film, and I think there’s a good chance for more elaboration and exploration of larger themes in the sequel. But this film really nails the story of friendship and growing up, while also effectively scaring the audience and keeping you on your toes. Andy Muschietti did a great job with the direction – nothing groundbreaking, but he nailed the lighter character-driven moments of the film. The script was great and I would watch this film even if it had no horror elements because of the well-drawn relationship between The Losers Club.

    The young ensemble in this film was outstanding, and it looks like we’re getting two summers in a row of young actors in a nostalgia-filled project having a breakout moment (and Finn Wolfhard is a part of both!). Jaeden Liberher was a very good lead and I continue to be excited about his growth on screen. Finn Wolfhard took this part and ran with it, and he’s destined to be an audience favorite but is so worthy of that love. I thought Sophia Lillis was great and I’m excited to see what she does next because she brought a lot of life to what could’ve been a stereotypical role. I fell in love with Jeremy Ray Taylor from his first scene and he was a total surprise for me. My favorite character may have been Eddie, played by Jack Dylan Grazer, who nailed the neuroticism and earned every single laugh he got – hoping the best for his new show on CBS with Bobby Moynihan because he’s definitely got great comedic chops. Bill Skarsgard was good as Pennywise, although the character was in the film less than I’d originally imagined. He’s unsettling from the get go and I never felt like I’d gotten comfortable with the character because he kept me nervous with every appearance.

    I’m glad the film looks to be a breakout success because it is extremely deserving of it. It’s a true crowdpleaser and you really fall for these characters and get invested in the story, something a horror film does not always necessarily deliver. I’m really excited to see how the sequel is handled (I haven’t read the books so I only know surface details) and what kind of cast they can assemble to recreate the electric chemistry of this one. Overall, “It” was a great movie-going experience (see this with a crowd and watch them eat it up!) and a great entry in what looks to be a strong year for horror films.

    This will be nominated for Best Makeup & Hairstyling at the next Oscars for sure.
