Of all the video versions of Stephen King books this is one of my all time favorites. The Stand and Dolores Claiborne were also fantastic, but for plain old horror IT stands out. Tim Curry's laugh was terrifying but I have always been terrified of clowns , Harry Anderson's/Seth Green's off the wall humor was relieving, and all the performances were great. Dennis Christopher who I have loved since Breaking Away and Fade to Black , Richard Thomas still a writer, but other than that quite different from John Boy , John Ritter and Jonathan Brandis RIP , Annette O'Toole, Tim <more>
Reid, and the other young actors who played them as children were all super. This story seemed to be Stephen King's answer to Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes." Just scarier and more geared to adults.
This is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is Stephen King at his best. Scares the heck out of me every time I watch. I also thought the book was excellent and spent a week of security guard duty in a shack at a paper mill factory reading every page, I could not put it down. When the movie came out, I had to own it, and only the complete double tape would work, not the cut up single tape version. It has become a family tradition to watch this film several times a year. The kids love it and have to sleep with the light on for a solid week after. This is a film that makes you check the <more>
drain before washing your hands. I highly recommend the book and the double cassette video. Thanks Stephen King for a great book and film!
Most know the story, a killer clown that terrorizes kids in a little town on the east coast. But many don't know this TV mini series follows the book much closer than the new release in 2017. This series is split into two parts. The first part is excellent. The second part is fair. What makes the first part of the film so good is the characters who play their roles. All seven of the children in this film are great actors/actresses. We are able to identify with them and follow them through the 1960s town of Derry Maine. Tim Curry who plays Pennywise is exceptional to say the least. He <more>
plays the clown that will forever terrify kids and grown ups for years to come. Overall the kids who play the part are great actors, with a good script, and beautiful cinematography throughout the entire first series. One of my favorite films!
9/10 because its old and cheesy. Not the best horror Stephen King ever did and most will see this and Carrie and believe they know his work, but do not base it on those style films alone. Stephen King's best work is when he dives into the darkness of human kind and takes you with him. But this review is about the original IT and this is an iconic movie regardless of how out of date it may be now. I would suggest anyone going to see the new one, see this one first and even read the book if you can. Tim Curry is one of my favourite actors and his role in this film is in my opinion, what <more>
makes the film. Compared to the clown in the new film, he is by far the best for the job.
A top notch adaptation of the Stephen King novel (by ozthegreatat42330)
This must be my night for Tim Curry Films. WHat makes this film so good, like the best films of King's books, is that they seem to translate well to mini-series events. The script here is excellent and the story is scary. What happens in the town of Derry Maine every thirty years when children start going missing and the adults don't even seem to notice. The answer lies in the storm drains under the town and a band of kids manage to be the first to escape the terror in the dark. But their experience scars them, as their memories of the event are wiped out and do not return until <more>
thirty years later when they are summoned back to Derry by the only one who remained behind, the town librarian, to finish what they began thirty years before. Especially great in his role was Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown from hell who was so into his part during filming that the rest of the cast avoided him. A fine ensemble both adult and child casts and excellent adaptation make this a very watchable film.
This movie caught me completely off guard. It was actually scary, especially the first part. The kids, actors and characters, were incredible. The movie is a lot better than the novel. In fact, skip the book and buy this wonderful movie. They should make more movies like this, with kids versus a dangerous monster. My only qualm about the miniseries as a whole is, that Tim Curry seemed a bit restrained, especially when compared with his performance in Muppet Treasure Island and Legend. Still, a very good movie.
The Lucky Seven (by claudio_carvalho)
In 1990, when a mysterious serial-killer attacks children in Derry, Maine, the local librarian Mike Hanlan Tim Reid feels that something is wrong in his hometown and calls his childhood outcast friends that formed the loser club and that are presently successful professionals Bill Denbrough Richard Thomas , who is a writer of horror novels that is working with his wife Audra Olivia Hussey in a movie in Hampstead, England; the awarded architect Ben Hanscom John Ritter in Houston, Texas; the designer Beverly Marsh Annette O'Toole in Chicago, Illinois; the entrepreneur Eddie <more>
Kaspbrack Dennis Christopher in Great Neck, New York; the comedian Ritchie Tozier Harry Anderson in Beverly Hills, California; and Stanley Uris Richard Masur in Atlanta, Georgia. Each one of them recalls when Bill's brother Georgie Tony Dakota was murdered by an evil entity with the appearance of a clown named Pennywise Tim Curry and how Bill had summoned them to defeat the creepy monster in the sewer of the town and their oath that they should reunite and fight against Pennywise in case of its return. In their reunion, Mike tells that every thirty years Pennywise returns Derry to kill children and they are capable of destroying the evil force with the power of their friendship. In the early 90's, I saw "It" on VHS with about 160 minutes running time and in that occasion I loved the first part of the story and I found the conclusion very disappointing. At that time, I did not know that the movie was edited, limited by the storage capacity of a VHS. I have just watched "It" on DVD with 192 minutes running time and now the long story makes sense. The first part, with the tale of friendship of the six boys and the girl, is really creeping and engaging and better and better; however the pace in the second part, when they are adults and return to Derry, is slow and I was a little tired while watching the movie. Despite of the running time and the lower pace, I liked this movie a lot. Further, it is great to see the talented Seth Green and Emily "Ginger Snaps" Perkins in the beginning of their careers. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "It: Uma Obra-Prima do Medo" "It: A Masterpiece of the Fear" Note: On 18 Dec 2017 I saw this film again.
I first saw this on a rented vhs in 1991. I still remember the shopkeeper telling me to rent the two cassette tapes as it was a two part series. Renting two vhs was a bit expensive those days but the film never made me regret shelling me the extra rupees. Revisited it recently on a dvd. Saw the remake with my son in a theater. The remake is really good. Coming back to the original, it has some nostalgic moments attached to it, the ones showing the kids play down by the river and the bike riding ones r memorable. Country life can b really fun for growing kids. The child actors in this film are <more>
marvelous. We easily are attached to them. The plot is about a group of misfit children who end up becoming lifelong friends and how they unite to deal with the horror affecting them. In my opinion it is a darker version of Stand By Me. Considering it was a made for TV as a mini series, it wasn't that gory n the special effects weren't that good. Also the pacing was a bit odd. The most striking thing about the film was Tim Curry's iconic, creepy performance as Pennywise, the murderous clown. The only movie which had dealt with creepy clowns before this was Salva's Clownhouse. Maybe Stephen King borrowed the clown thing from Victor Salva n Salva borrowed the concept of the thing coming back after 23/27 years in Jeepers Creepers from Stephen King.The remake nailed it again with the child actors. The remake has superb cinematography, awesome acting n terrific direction. The fat boy's acting n facial expressions in the remake is spot on.
Highly entertaining adaptation of King's beloved literary work. Far better than its ratings would suggest. I didn't want to like this movie. The cast was a motley crew at best, and the screenplay wasn't like the book. But what I found when I bought this movie was: it was better. INFINITELY BETTER! All the "fat" has been trimmed out of the screenplay and what is left is the core of King's story.DEFINITE SPOILERSOkay, before I start this, let me say, I don't care about the turtle the other "good aliens" , the omitted sexuality or anything else King put <more>
into the novel. I read the novel over and over for years and I loved it, but as with all "adaptations," there will be changes. Accept it and move on.The smarmy casting threw me off a bit at first. I thought, "Jeeeeez." But I was delightfully surprised by the performances of the actors both adult and child in this artfully written and perpetrated attempt.It wasn't truly what I would classify as "horror," but the moments were tensely suspenseful, and the acting was top row.The story is of seven children, brought together once again as adults to face an ancient evil; an evil they have defeated once before.The town of Derry is more than just quiet. It has a history of mass disappearances and indifference concerning the untoward events which occur there. A mysterious shroud of forgetfulness lies over this town, and soon after leaving, most forget everything that happened. But Derry has one asset. It has Mike Hanlon Tim Reid/Marlon Taylor-12 , a dedicated friend to the other six, head librarian, "Lighthouse," and Keeper of Derry.A phone call to the rest of the "Lucky Seven" brings them together once again and, as they slowly begin to remember the things which happened all those years ago, also serves to outline and reshape their lives forever.Is the magick that brought them together so many years ago, still in them? Will they win against Pennywise a second time? Will they survive? This is a good movie. It's adequate as an adaptation, having been changed, as adaptations are; the very WORD adaptation comes from adapt, meaning to change to fit. It's decent as a horror movie; scary in places and has a consistent storyline. It's not what I'd call true horror, but more...suspense.The storyline and the performances of the child actors is what fully redeems this movie. These kids among them is Seth Green! are true talent. I was also quite impressed with the adult actors' performances.To get consistently good, believable performances out of this rather motley crew of comics and has-beens took directing genius on behalf of Tommy Lee Wallace. This come as a genuine surprise, considering everything else he's directed has just STUNK to high HEAVEN... Halloween 3: Season of the Witch! *gags* the ABSOLUTE WORST of the series, by the way! It's entertaining and gives you a feel of having history; roots, as it were. I did, however, find that they left out one significant detail. They never explained the relevance of the clown's repetitious, "They float down here."It's a good movie. Watch it. This movie gets a 7.8/10 on the "TV" scale, from...the Fiend :.
