King fans will surely appreciate the clear effort and affection that went into this adaptation, even as it struggles to become more than the sum of its parts.

The real reason IT works is because it takes time with the kids, revelling in their colourful lingo and comradeship as much as their fears.

This is an ensemble smorgasbord of scariness, or maybe a portmanteau of petrification, throwing everything but the haunted kitchen-sink at the audience in the cause of freaking us out.

A nightmarish yet somehow episodic meshing of phobias and primal premises wrapped up into one effective package, guaranteed to haunt you.

The film works beautifully as a straight-arrow genre piece, and a portrait of young people taking command of their own destiny.

It is a solid thriller that works best when it is most involved in its adolescent heroes' non-monster-related concerns.

More successful as a coming-of-age movie than a horror, It still ranks among the better Stephen King adaptations - no small praise indeed.

There's never a scene in IT that wants you to pause and appreciate how creepy it is; instead, those scenes serve to build tension and illuminate what the characters fear. The pacing, visuals, and score are all exquisite.

I think Andy Muschietti did a great job with IT. I personally liked this re-adaptation way more than the original miniseries. I especially loved the new look of Pennywise. Bill Skarsgard did a great job portraying Pennywise The Dancing Clown. The Kid Actors (And Actress) did an amazing job on the part of the Losers Club, and I’m especially excited for the...

There are both good blockbusters and very good blockbusters. I Think 'IT' is very well done, good blockbuster. It's not a very good blockbuster, but it's in between good and very good. I definitely recommend this movie Horror Movie, Teen Scream Night. And For Those People that have large sense of 'Coulrophobia' DO NOT WATCH THIS FILM!.

A perfect combination of horror, drama and comedy; It lives up to its source material.

"It" delivers a constant stream of uneasy scares in its lengthy runtime. Whilst a little lengthy, the movie never bores. The scare factor of "It" has been carefully crafted by a great combination of great script as well as the acting chops of Bill Skarsgard and the troupe of child actors.

I went into this movie not expecting much from it, just the light scare but I was pleasantly surprised (or should that be horrified). IT is a great movie, its like The Goonies with a Horror twist. Worth a see, don't over analyse it just enjoy it :-)

Ah, Stephen King. The man can write so persuasively, mimicking his characters' inner-thoughts with such sincere veracity, that his stories grip and frighten even as we're consciously thinking "this is so fuggin' stupid". His fantasy and supernatural fiction have led more than one competent film-maker into adaptation quicksand for this very reason: a...

In a nutshell? IT delivers the biggest shock by being a really, really good adaptation of a Stephen King book. Cards on the table? I was never a fan of the 1990 TV mini-series, finding it laughably bad at best, deeply dull at worst. A lot of friends dug Tim Curry’s Pennywise, but the whole affair left me more afraid of bad Stephen King adaptations than...

First of all it was a successful trip to the movies on my part. At no point did I shush the speculative whispering behind me or throw my box of popcorn over the squad to me left (apparently they got a lot of the film's humour I kept missing). As teenager of the 80's I loved Stephen King although IT was never a particular fave. The book felt like Stand By Me...
