    HYPE AF for this movie.

    As previously discussed I am a book nerd and growing up Stephen King was one of my favorite writers to read as a youngster along with Michael Crichton and others.

    King is a hit and miss writer but when he is on he is among the best American novelists in history. Sadly for every IT and Gunslinger there is a Tommyknockers and Dreamcatcher.

    IT was and is one of my favorite books of all time, top 10 easily. As a kid it was an intimidating read and horrifying at the same time.



    King's best work, in my opinion, and certainly his most consistent is his non-horror works in film, short stories and novels.

    Stand By Me
    11/22/63
    The Green Mile
    Dark Tower series
    The Shawshank Redemption
    Hearts in Atlantis


    IT combines the best of stories like Stand By Me and twists it with a horror that is truly terrifying to make something special and judging by the trailers and early reviews they have nailed it.

    I will probably wait for video. Looks good though. Miniseries freaked me out when I was a kid. I've been meaning to read the book for like 20 years now but it's hard for me to get motivated to read a 1,000+ page book.

    i saw the trailer a few weeks back and rewatched the original.. i hadn't seen it since i was a kid and dont think i ever even finished the movie before

    that ending was dumb as dick

    i generally don't care for horror movies but i may watch this just to see if it improves on the original

    don't care about the book.. let the clown stay a ****ing clown..

    the "YOU'LL FLOAT TOOOOO" is creepier on the remake at least (1:44 in particular)

    I also am planning on seeing IT...xo do you realize it is a two part movie? Sucks...also, most King stuff sucks on the screen for whatever reasons...one exception for me, and it wasn't even a novel but rather a screenplay Storm of the Crentury...TV mini series...very good...
