Movie review of 'It'
‘It’ is an American supernatural horror film directed by Andy Muschietti. It is based on Stephen King's 1986 novel of the same name.
The film is produced by New Line Cinema, KatzSmith Productions, Lin Pictures and Vertigo Entertainment, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
It features Jaeden Leiberher, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer and Bill Skarsgard.
The film is set in the 1980s and tells the story of seven kids in Derry, Maine, who are terrorized by an evil, dancing clown named Pennywise.
Bill Denbrough (Jaeden Lieberher) and his team form the ‘loser’s club’ and set on a journey to investigate the disappearance of Bill’s brother Georgie.
In the process of figuring out why more children are disappearing from their small town; the group confronts Pennywise and face their own personal fears.
The film works because of Bill Skarsgard’s terrific acting as Pennywise, natural performances of the children, actual sound effects and effective jump scares.
Appreciate the director’s work of letting the audience get to know the kids and their terrifying events that force them to come together and take action.
If you are a fan of horror, ‘It’ movie is for you!
