Kinda how I'm leaning.

 

I watched the original IT mini series this weekend and its awful. Not scary at all.. forgot how shitty that show was.

I think most of us forgot how shit garbage the original IT was because we all saw it when we were young enough to actually be frightened by it. In retrospect, it's so fucking bad. I'm pretty sure there are episodes of Are You Afraid of the Dark? that were better than IT lol

I honestly think it would be much scarier if Pennywise was an actual deranged human being in clown costume that brutally murdered children in the sewer system, instead of some type of fantasy, shape-shifting science fiction character portrayed in the show.

Well that's the problem you get when you adapt a Stephen King novel. Every baddie needs to be a stupid unexplainable spiritual extraterrestrial creature

Ended up seeing IT. 

 

Thought it was light years better than the original series and Pennywise was very well done.  Entertaining flick for sure.

 

It did a good job at bringing the Goonies / Stranger Things child 80's vibe to it.

This is why I don't want to go back and watch Tommyknockers. Scared the tits off me as a kid, but it was a budget miniseries and I'm pretty sure it actually sucked. Think I'll leave it be.

Easily my most anticipated film next year. Alex Garland's follow-up to Ex-Machina. The novel is some great Sci-Fi horror meets HP Lovecraft eerie dread.

i try to be cautious whenever talented filmmakers are plucked off of the talent tree by corporate shadow people so that that filmmaker can helm a big existing property for them.

you’re crazy.

Nah Aronofsky is crazy. There's a lot to like about mother! but it gets a pretty cheesy in some of its attempts to be profound or mysterious.
