Plot Summary:
"A series of murders prompts Mike Hanlon to suspect that the supernatural menace that he and a group of friends battled as children has returned. He begins to call his friends to remind them of the oath they swore: if It returned again, they would come back to Derry to do battle again."

One of Stephen Kingís most popular stories, which was originally broadcast in three parts in the early 1990ís on Sky and Cable in the UK, finally hit DVD in the UK recently and itís as frightening as I remembered.

Tim Curry stars as Pennywise the Dancing Clown (a.k.a. scary bastard) who is really something far more terrifying (thatís debatable) which likes to feast on scared little kiddies.

From its wonderful cast of both adult and child stars including Richard Thomas, John Ritter, Tim Reid, Annette OíToole and Olivia Hussey to Seth Green, Jonathan Brandis, Emily Perkins as well as Laura Harris and Chelan Simmons in smaller roles, the film recounts the trauma the youths endured in 1960ís Maine, and the terror that awaits them when they are reunited 30 years later in the early 1990ís, all grown up and just as scared.

From the creepy opening to the most memorable bits such as Pennywise in the sewer, the school showers and Beverly Marshís sink, to his melting face bit towards the end of the first part, or his mug on the moon, thereís no escaping the fact that Pennywise IS the scariest clown to ever grace our screens.

King fans still debate if itís any good or not, but for people my age who first saw it on its initial TV debut this will most likely haunt the child in each of us forever more.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Stephen King fans are usually disappointed by the film versions of his literary works but for me, IT is right up there with the best of them thanks to its heartwarming and chilling look at youth and the childhood horrors which continue to haunt us into adulthood.
