Stephen King Approves
The creator of Pennywise has nothing but praise for the upcoming adaptation of It. King says that the new movie makes you care about the characters, which is the key to making the scares work. King believes that the movie is so good it’s worth seeing more than once.
“I had hopes, but I was not prepared for how good it really was. It’s something that’s different, and at the same time, it’s something that audiences are gonna relate to. They’re gonna like the characters. To me, it’s all about character. If you like the characters… if you care… the scares generally work,” King said.
“I’m sure my fans will enjoy the movie. I think they’re gonna really enjoy the movie. And I think some of them will go back two or three times and actually savor the thing. I went back and saw it a second time, and I felt I was seeing things the second time through that I missed the first time.”
