It can be anything. A fanged monster that won't stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but It isn't clowning around. Instead, It terrifies youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing some to their untimely doom -- until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later the evil resurfaces: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate stand against It.

you need to flip the disc over to watch the second half

the movie itself seemed more like a made for TV movie, it actually felt more like I was watching an old episode of the X-Files, lower grade production than you'd expect for a box office movie.

Checked out one copy and side 2 will not play, be sure both sides work before checking this movie out!

One of many Stephen King movies I enjoyed. This is a classic. This movie (book too) is not for those who don't like clowns.

“IT” is a classic Stephen King tale, involving psychological horror, friendship, and a maniacal clown thrown in for good measure. The storey follows the unfortunate happenings of a group of friends known affectionately as ‘The Losers Club’. The film begins with the death of one of the club’s members younger brothers at the hands of a murderous clown by the name of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. Pennywise haunts the friends throughout their lives, causing mayhem and fear. Once grown up, the friends move away from their childhood small town, but eventually return in order to vanquish Pennywise once and for all.
Stephen King has not failed to impress with “IT”. The famed horror author has brought yet another terrifying story to the table, and director Tommy Lee Wallace did has done a wonderful job of bringing it to life. The bond that the Loser’s Club shares is heart-warming, and Pennywise is horribly despicable. You can’t help but love the friends and hate the clown! The setting of the movie does a great job of setting the mood, and the plot is never dull. Of course, as with all Stephen King stories, watchers/readers should be wary of the psychological horror that comes hand in hand with “IT”. There are no real ‘jump scares’, but rather drawn-out moments where you know that Pennywise will show up, but you don’t know how, and you don’t know what he will do when he does pop up. Opposed to the predictable actions of other horror movies villains, Pennywise is spontaneous, and just downright terrifying.
The author of this review recommends “IT” for those who are fifteen and over, and looking for a good scare. However, a fair warning to all who watch: if you weren’t afraid of clowns before, you will be after watching “IT”! Be prepared too to be hiding under your covers at night, hoping that Pennywise isn’t hiding under your bed. There are some ‘trigger warnings’ revolving around gore within the movie. All in all though, the author of this review highly recommends this movie to those who enjoy good psychological horror films.
