What are you afraid of?
I'm afraid of this crazy fucker screaming in sewage water, that's what i'm afraid of!!
For those of you unfamiliar with the original "IT" movies/miniseries plot, the movie is based on the Stephen King novel of the same title. The story takes place in Maine, revolving around a group of kids who are considered "The Losers Club". These children come face to face with a creature that has the ability to manipulate it's shape to that of the victim's worst nightmare. The creature seems to gravitate toward the form of a clown named Pennywise. The Losers Club swear to put an end to this creature, but it didn't end when they were kids. They come back thirty years later to finish the job.
Pennywise the Dancing Clown was originally played by the phenomenal Tim Curry. I felt he was an amazing choice for that part because he is such an out of the box actor. Tim seems to always be ready and willing to jump off the walls, scream at the top of his lungs, and steal the spotlight in every piece of work i have seen him do. There is nothing he can't do and i don't believe there is such a thing as a comfort zone for him. He takes whatever material he is given 100 percent of his energy, and he will forever be one of my favorite actors if not my favorite. His performance alone made "IT" a very enjoyable experience for me.
The killer clown that touched our hearts as a child is now going to be played by Bill Skarsgård, which i did not know upon writing this article. I have to admit that i have had a serious crush on this man ever since i first saw him appear in the Netflix original series "Hemlock Grove". With that being said, I am now terrified because even as a attractive man he scares the shit out of me with his attitude and looks of complete savagery in that series. He now has the freedom to be a complete psychopath without any restrictions of having to appear normal for the people surrounding him. I'M SO EXCITED! I can also see how he was chosen due to his body type. Bill is very tall with a long torso and big hands. Basically he is already a human version of Slender Man and then slap a crazy clown mask on it and you have one creepy ass character.
This movie is set to be released on September 8th, 2017.
