Is there anything scarier than clowns? Of course not. And who knows scary better than Stephen King? You see where we're going. It puts a malevolent clown (given demented life by a powdered, red-nosed Tim Curry) front and center, as King's fat novel gets the TV-movie treatment. Even at three hours plus, the action is condensed, but an engaging Stand by Me vibe prevails for much of the running time. The seven main characters, as adolescents, conquered a force of pure evil in their Maine hometown. Now, the cackling Pennywise is back, and they must come home to fight him--or, should we say, It--again. Admitting the TV-movie trappings and sometimes hysterical performances, this is a genuinely gripping thriller. As so often with King, the basic idea (the bond formed during a childhood trauma) is clean and powerful, a lifeline anchored in reality that leads us to the supernatural. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars Coulrophobia: Fear of Clowns 16 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I vividly remember to this day the first time i watched Stephen King's IT. I was staying at my grandmother's house for a period of time and not unlike any other child of my age was immensely bored. It was in the evening, and so my nan realising my predicament decied to put a 'nice film on about clowns'. She truely did not know what she was allowing me to watch. I swear to this day i am PETRIFIED of clowns.
I watched IT again last year with a group of friends and was still scared. The opening scene with Pennywise shifting in and out of the sheets on the washing line has stuck in my memory ever since. Tim Curry is amazing as Pennywise, and without wanting to sound perverse, he acts the part so well that you the audience actually believe he enjoys scaring children!
As the other reviewers have stated, this film is about childhood. The good parts and the bad, and also on a deeper issue the fallability of parents.
Although this film will undoubtedly scare you witless and forever alter your perception of the circus; it is without doubt a superb romp.

4.0 out of 5 stars A quality horror film 7 July 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The book , written by Stephen King has a terrific idea of an every changing being which adapts to whatever scares you most. The film is pretty good but I believe the book would completely petrify you. As another user said ,'Pennywise the Clown' steals the show as the evil child killer with his blood filled balloons.This character played by Tim Curry knocks back the laughs of those who laugh at clowns and will leave you with at least one sleepless night. The story is of a small group of children who one by one encounter IT (in a different form each time). Once they find out of each others rendezvous , they all vow to link and fight IT together , should IT ever return.
A quality horror film , but the only thing that will truly frighten you is Pennywise as he seems to just appear everywhere with riddley talk. The thing that greatly spoils the film is the end , as a raging climax is built but just fails to deliver. Read the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Dumbed-down Version Of A Great Horror 18 Aug 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The first thing I have to say about this DVD is that, like reviewer Mrs Green below, I was stumped by the film apparently finishing half-way through, until I realised that the rest of it was on the reverse side of the disk. This really might have been mentioned somewhere on the sleeve, it had me flummoxed for about thirty minutes ...

"IT" is a really scary story and is an extremelly well-written book. It's the story of a group of misfit children who team up together to fight a supernatural entity, and then in their adulthood find themselves having to reunite with half-forgotten friends and memories to return to their hometown and fight it again.

There were some elements of the film that reflected the horror of the book, but there was a lot lacking. Salem's Lot, Pet Semetary and the Shining managed to capture it; this one didn't for me. The bullies which were so evil in the book were a shadow of this in the film, and I find Ronald MacDonald a million times more scary that the depiction of Pennywise in the film. The fairground musical score was also a bit off-putting - bit to jolly - but the depictions of 1950s New England were well done, and the acting, particulary from the children, upstaged their adult counterparts.

It's a farly enjoyable horror film, but those that know the book might agree that Stephen King's ability to take you into another, darker place with his writing on this occasion isn't captured by the DVD.

And a note to Warner Home Video: If it's a double-sided DVD, for heaven's sake TELL people. Don't just leave an empty box with nothing on the disk, and nothing on the packaging to say so!

5.0 out of 5 stars Avoid watching if you don't want nightmares! 5 Jun 2011
I have to say that I've seen 'The Exorcist' and all the other scary movies that were around when I was in my early teens, but this puppy REALLY unnerved me!

I'm not like many of the previous reviewers who seem to have a fear of 'creepy a$$ clown's', but after watching this movie, I would have to join their ranks for sure.

So what if it was a two part TV movie, it packs a massive psychological punch.

I rented this years ago and then bought it years later, but I've YET to find the courage to watch it again...arghhhhhh!

So there it sits on the shelf, until one day...I take it down, open the DVD player's tray...and press 'play'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Creates fear from beggining to end 24 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is one of the best film adaptations of a Stephen King book. It creates tension throughout the film and scares you in many places. Tim Curry is perfect as the evil child killer Pennywise and the rest of the cast fit their roles perfectly. The only criticism I have about this film is the corny ending. It never seems to live up to the rest of the film. However, it still does not diminish the sheer pleasure you will have at watching the rest of the film. If you require a truly memorable experience from this film, watch it last thing at night and I bet you will have nightmares. I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars The IT effect 1 Dec 2003
By Sam
Format:VHS Tape
Okay , IT may not be the scariest film ever , but its the everlasting effect it leaves on you. I saw IT for the first time when I was four or five , as a result I have been scared of clowns ever since . Perhaps I shouldnt have seen it at such a young age , that much is true , but I saw other films like : The Fly , Gremlins etc , which had no effect on me whatsoever ( except turn me into a bit of a psycho who has a bloodlust problem). IT is such a great film because although its terrifying it proves my theory that CLOWNS ARE EVIL AND SHOULD BE DESTROYED !!!!!!!!
