31 Nights of Horror V, Night 4: It (novel)


Three sentence review:

Everyone remembers Tim Curry’s iconic performance as Pennywise the Clown, but beyond that the 1990 made-for-tv adaptation of Stephen King’s daunting 1,000+ page novel It is just straight up garbage. The book is a MUST read that is a thousand times darker and complex, and is one of the best examples of Stephen King’s ability to let the reader really, really get to know his hyper realistic characters. The sinister history of Derry and every Loser Club member back story sticks with you long after you finish (as if it really happened), and I pray that director Andy Muschietti finally gives my all time favorite novel the quality film adaptation it sorely deserves.

How to get extra nerdy:

  1. Wear a leather jacket and tell everyone the moon is talking to you
  2. Wear a Derry, ME tshirt while reading
  3. Make your own newspaper sailboat!
