The rest of the cast includes Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, and Jackson Robert Scott. Although the young cast has an idea of who they would like to see.

Menace clown Pennywise is "definitely scarier" than Freddy Krueger, but his "terrors can feel cartoony", Ryan Porter writes at the Toronto Star.

IT doesn't only appear as a clown in the film, he appears as a variety of different haunting things.

You will never look at a red balloon the same way again.

No adult is ever going to believe that a monstrous circus clown is responsible for the crimes being committed in Derry, so the Losers decide they must be the ones to stop Pennywise.

In the new screen version from director Andy Muschietti, Pennywise is played by Bill Skarsgard, best known for his work on Hemlock Grove and the Divergent series.

You see, the novel isn't just about these kids banding together to kill some Lovecraftian jester in 1957. He's absolutely terrifying. For the slight drool when Pennywise talks, to his ghoulish squeals of laughter, this Pennywise will scare another generation of kids who watch this movie when they aren't supposed to. He's disturbing and unrelenting, and there are scenes that will make even the biggest of Horror fans squirm. He instead relies on a linear storyline that allows the audience to form a stronger bond with the characters at their young age, bringing more clearly into view their strengths and weaknesses.

For many horror movies, finding a balance between a captivating story and scaring the audience is a hard, oftentimes impossible feat.

Do you want this terrifying little dude on your shelf?

The film wasn't without its problems, though.

The newest film adaptation focuses on the youths and their initial encounters with the dark entity, which the children christen "It". This was also a major element of his alien invasion novel Dreamcatcher - though the subsequent movie adaptation didn't quite turn into a classic.
