Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: You'll scream bloody murder!
Rotten: Doesn't cut very deep and isn't very scary.
Fresh: "It" fills its 135-minute run time with enough impressive visuals to keep its audience rapt, if not as emotionally invested as the source material deserves.
Fresh: I'm writing this not so much as a critic but as an ordinary moviegoer, experiencing Proustian transport via an old-fashioned scary movie executed by a team of filmmakers and actors at the top of their game.
...Wow...just...just wow. I've been waiting for a horror movie that is not only scary, but delivers on so much more than that. IT was one of those movies that I heard people laugh about, because of the miniseries with Tim Curry, so THIS version of IT was something I had low hopes for. But man, oh man, I should have had higher hopes, 'CAUSE THIS MOVE'S AWESOME. IT is the first horror movie in a while to deliver on scares, plus the drama, and the tension building. It's intense, it's superbly acted, Pennywise is scary as...well, yeah. The director knew what made this book scary and improved upon them. I do wish this movie was scary enough to make me wet myself, but we can't have everything. Anyway, Skarsgard IS Pennywise, sorry Curry. So yeah, this movie is everything you would want from a Stephen King novel, and more. 10/10. Watch it, then watch it again.
First horror movie in along time that was actually scary and characters did an amazing job acting.
