All-New Featurette Welcomes You to the Losers' Club

Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise in the horror thriller

After the movie is over, there is laughter from Pennywise the Clown heard.

"Every 27 years Pennywise comes around", Cortney Seaberg said wearing a clown nose before a screening at Alamo Drafthouse. Directed by Andy Muschietti and made for around 35 million USA dollars, "It" stars Bill Skarsgard as the evil clown Pennywise.

The top foreign number came from the United Kingdom with an opening day of $4.6 million at 1,342 screens for an 86% share of the top five films in the market.

Either way, we haven't seen the last of Pennywise. The sequence at the abandoned house, the slide show scene in the garage, and the final showdown with Pennywise is right out of a middle school kid's nightmares and some of the best constructed horror sequences in years. Several months later, Georgie's older brother, Bill (Jaeden Lieberher), hasn't lost hope and is convinced Georgie is alive.

"Derry's not like any town I've ever been in before", Ben says to the group.

This production, which is refreshingly devoid of any notable A-list talent, is being targeted as a two-part horror "duology" - just like the mini-series - with the first instalment going by the moniker of "The Losers" Club'.

"They've been more than generous". What's particularly great is the way that "It" so expertly weaves together the horrors of everyday life with the supernatural.

I liked IT, didn't love IT, so I'm giving "It" a solid B.

Meeting Pennywise in a field isn't our ideal of a good time. However, once they do, it's time to take action with an ill-considered plan to deal with this clown!

Super Eagles In Camp: Plotting The Downfall Of Cameroon's Indomitable Lions
Algeria, Cameroun and Nigeria qualified for the 2010 and 2014 World Cup tournaments, but only one of the three countries can make it to Russian Federation .

Predictions for how much the film will take at the box office now range from around $65 million to $100 million.

Skarsgard (Netflix's "Hemlock Grove") is rather effective as this child-craving embodiment of evil.

Do you want this terrifying little dude on your shelf?

The young actors are, to varying degrees, enjoyable, as well.

The film tells the story of seven young outcasts growing up in the township of Derry, Maine, who call themselves "the Losers' Club". "We'll probably have a script for the second part in January", he said.

King would go on to write many other horror stories, including "Misery" and "The Tommyknockers", both of which were adapted for the screen.

Plus - and this isn't a negative - "It", while leaving the door cracked for more, does provide enough of an ending.

Stars (of four): 2.
