The second adaptation of one of Stephen King's most famous books It has hit cinema's with aplomb, securing the position of biggest opening weekend for a horror film ever. Directed by Andrés Muschietti, this version keeps most of the story intact, except for planting it in the 1980s instead of the 50s, and delivers us the first half of this tale, looking at how these seven kids had to overcome their own fears to defeat the monstrous dancing clown Pennnywise. Starring Bill Skarsgård, Finn Wolfhard and Sophia Lillis, It may provide us a welcome change, as this is clearly a horror story with a solid backbone, but is it really free of the today's cinematic cliché's, and is it even scary? Plus, Richee tells us his own terrifying tale from within the darkness of the cinema screening.
