Horror movies are some of the few kinds of movies people love to watch these days, all snugged up in the theatres and in their blankets. Horror movies are made to scare and frighten us, well everyone thinks that way. They give us shocks and bring out our worst fears, but still we still love them and how. What explains this phenomenon? Well, we all have this one common thing. We like to be scared as long as we know we are not in actual danger and safe on our couch or chair in a movie theatre.
Talking about some out of the box movies, we are all in for a treat this year as we have one of the most anticipated horror films coming up this year- IT. “The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years–if it ever did end–began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.” With these lines begins Stephen King‘s acclaimed horror novel 'It', a tale of a team of self-professed “Losers” who battle an ancient and unstoppable evil both as children and as adults and fail to do so. And this upcoming horror movie is based on the same novel by Stephen King.
It is a remake of the 90’s movie of the same name and stars Jaeden Lieberher , Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor. As the first trailer for Andrés Muschietti‘s adaptation shows, this movie ‘It’ is sticking close to the source material and not trying to deviate from the original plot. The trailer shows when children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
It is going to be an interesting thing to see if this movie manages to make a big name for itself as the book did. This movie was initially being directed by Cary Fukunaga, who managed to blend darkness in a supernatural story in the critically acclaimed TV show True Detective (Season 1). But the project was given to Andrés Muschietti due to budgetary problems. Let’s hope this upcoming horror movie is unlike the other ones and manages to give us enough chills & screams and get the horror of clowns back in the world as it releases on September 8, worldwide.
Summary: This horror movie is based on the famous novel of Stephen King with the same name ‘It’. This flick is slated to release on September 8 and bring back the terror of clowns in the minds of the audiences.
