After a period of continuous flow of Horror films, it’s been comparatively slower on the horror movie front. One of the latest horror films I watched after a while was, ‘IT’, and I have to give you this backstory, I watched it with a group of friends.
Released in September 2017, ‘IT’ is a film based on a novel of the same name by Stephen King that came out in 1986.The plot revolves around a group of 15-year-old friends spurred on by stuttering Bill who lost his brother Georgie. Bill is unable to come to terms with the loss of his brother and keeps trying to find out where he disappeared to.
And that is the brief plot of the movie. If I went into detail about the horror part of it, it might just be a spoiler and this is one of those movies that you really need to see instead.
The ‘Losers Club’ ultimately spends the movie following clues, trying to solve the sewer system of the city (Bill is sure that Georgie disappeared through it).
With underlying tones of pedophilia and much more, this might not be the right movie to watch with kids. But if you can get past that and enjoy a horror film, this is definitely one of the movies you have got to watch.
Personally, I haven’t read the book, but reliable sources tell me that as usual, the book is much better than the movie and that is something that we have gotten used to. But having said that, if you haven’t read the book yet, you will have no problem.
The movie doesn’t have too many jump scares but with definitely loads of thrillers.
Overall, it’s a movie that you will enjoy for sure. I’d give it a 4/5.
