This movie starts out with a clown who goes by the name of “Pennywise the Dancing Clown” who is murdering little kids in a town called Derry. The adults of the town start to set curfews and start looking for the person that is killing their children but nobody can find him except for this group of about seven kids who call themselves “The Loser’s Club”. Now the clown is no ordinary clown, he is a supernatural being that has the power to change into your biggest fear. Which is what we see in the movie, whenever the kids actually face the creature it winds up being other monsters instead of a clown. He uses his clown form in order to attract kids and get them to approach him. When the kids find out about the clown they vow to destroy him and to take revenge for a kid that died that happened to be the younger brother of one of the kids in the group. They gear up and go down into the sewers to destroy the monster so he can never harm anyone again. When they see the clown I think he turns into a werewolf and they hit him with a silver pellet or some small silver thing. Which takes him down and everyone assumed that the evil clown was dead. Now the film was made up of two parts that were like a hour and a half each so this movie was very long. After part one finishes and the clown is believed to be destroyed we get to part two and this part takes place 30 years into the future when all the kids from “The Loser’s Club” are adults and are living their lives and mostly all of them left the town, but they all made a promise to each other and said if the clown ever comes back they would all go back to Derry to finish him off once and for all. When part two starts we see one of the groups members is killed by Pennywise and this gets all of them too go back. This part of the movie is basically just trying to get the adults too remember their roots and where they came from and how they brought down the clown when they were younger. So they go back to Derry and plot and try to figure out how they can kill him until they eventually remember and go back down to the place where it all began. Leading too their last fight with the monster. Overall I really liked this movie, I think that Stephen King writes some weird and creepy things but they all end up being good to be honest. Although, this is a horror movie it still has some comedy in their and can make you laugh, but it shows the value of friendship and being there for one another. Part one was scary and really brought the horror in the film, the first part had me terrified the whole time. The second part on the other hand lost its scary vibe and brought in a little more comedy. I laughed more then I was afraid in the second part but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the second part it was still very good and overall with the two parts together it was a good movie, it was just very long but worth every minute. You know it has to be a good movie when the film still gets talked about and mentioned to this day. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I recommend that you go watch it you wont regret it and who knows you might just fall in love with the film.
I give this movie a 8/10
