IMDB's summary: "a group of bullied kids band together when a shape-shifting demon, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.
My summary: a bunch a kids join forces to take out a creepy ass clown who wants to eat them all.
I went into this movie only seeing the first half of the miniseries & about 25% of the book so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. All I knew was that I was already terrified of Pennywise.
The kids in this movie did a great job, they all added something special to the film. My favorite was Ben. I am liking him in the book had& the actor that plays him is so frickin' adorable that I want to bring him home & just squeeze him.
But the best performance, I think, was Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise. He had some really big clown shoes to fill with Tim Curry playing the original Pennywise but I think that he totally knocked it outta the park with performance. I think that he had this part of him that was approachable especially when he was talking with Georgie but he was large & present during the scenes where he needed to be after these poor kids.
I am so excited to finish the book to see how it compares to this movie. It was a great scare & a movie that I cannot stop thinking about. Amazing, just plain amazing!
