In 1990, ABC aired a 2-part miniseries based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel IT. Directed by Tommy Lee Wallace, the series is best known for Tim Curry’s iconic portrayal of Pennywise the Dancing Clown. IT will finally be getting a Blu-ray release this October, and while special features are still being confirmed, the film will come with a chilling Pennywise t-shirt.
Official Synopsis: In 1960, a group of social outcasts who are bullied by a gang of greasers led by Henry Bowers are also tormented by an evil demon who can shape-shift into a clown and feed on children’s fears and kill them. After defeating the demonic clown as kids, it resurfaces 30 years later and they must finish it off as adults once again.
IT is currently available for pre-order on Amazon, HERE.
