I only hope they managed to create a decent ending, unlike the mini-series. Honestly, that's 12 hours I can never get back. I'm still upset at how bad IT truly was some 30 years later.


Good Night John-Boy

I guess I'm actually one of the few Stephen King fans who didn't like the book very much. It was kind of a bloated, unfocused mess.

But the new movie looks promising.

It Is a Great Movie That's Much, Much More Than Just a Horror Flick

12 hours? Where do I see that cut?

It was two nights at 2 hours EACH including commercials, so about 3.5 hours total.

The early reviews on Rotten have it right at a 90%. That's pretty strong.

Can't wait!

I am actually curious about the book. Never read IT. Clowns are something I am not fond of, however, for some reason, I am really wanting to see this new movie. Never thought I would ever say that....ever. I saw the miniseries and hated it (having a fear of clowns doesn't help), but the trailers for this new adaptation have me intrigued.

Yeah, but it felt like 12 hours.
