“It” Review: More Coming of Age Than Scare Fest

Clowns are meant to bring children joy with their playful antics and joyous demeanor, but Pennywise does nothing but the complete opposite in the modern-day retelling of Stephen King’s It.

Originally released in 1986 and adapted into a TV miniseries that aired in 1990, this 2017 remake will have you split down the middle. A great tale more similar to Stranger Things than the original, the scares don’t float the way they used to.
