    In just over three weekends the new horror flick “IT” has surpassed $350,000,000 in box office sales. This is in large part due to its captivating plot. It does an excellent job of explaining the story and introducing us to the characters of Stephens King’s book published in 1974. Most moviegoers today have never seen the original 1990 movie, or read the book. Everything in the original movie improves drastically in this new movie.

    The original “IT” movie was split into two parts “IT” part one and “IT” part two. The plot and character development moved very slowly in the original, but in the new “IT”  the plot was not rushed, developed quicker, and had you on the edge of your seat the entire way through. The new “IT” introduced you to the “Losers Club”  consisting of seven friends that were constantly bullied through middle school. They form this bond, and as a group realize that they must overcome their biggest fears. The main antagonist “Pennywise” the clown reveals each member’s biggest fears.

The script in the new “IT” film is very strong and believable. The acting helps keep the audience engaged throughout the movie, it is both humorous and often terrifying. The acting and script in the old “IT” is dated, and cheesy. Camerawork and visuals were immensely improved. Where the old version tried to make Pennywise scary, the new version makes him frightening. While there are rumors that this isn’t the end of Pennywise the clown you will have to go see the movie to find out that answer for yourself.
