Continuing along with some support of the upcoming Horror films of note, it’s time to make sure that you know that today is the official US wide opening for the adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying novel “It”. About a month ago I posted the full trailer which if you missed you can see HERE. Its really, really creepy. Take a look at the official theatrical poster and remind yourself of the premise and cast down below.
The Premise: When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. (thanks Wiki).

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Based on my having quite the barrage of shows and contests to monitor along with a tad bit of everything else I will not be seeing this film during the early weeks of its theatrical run. I do hope to see it before its made its way to home video so lets see what happens. The advance word is that the film is quite scary and that is good by me, one really expects a film with a sinister monster clown type figure to terrify and this one should for sure. What about you readers? Will you be catching the film during the opening weekend or right after? Let me know down in the comments section below and if you should see it, please no spoilers of any kind. I hate that stuff and there is no need for it. Until next we meet.
