Review by Chucky
While newcomers to this particular adaptation of the novel will find it to be a little too corny, there were many children who watched this in the 90's and it scarred them for a very long time. I happened to be one of those children.

Even to this day, in my mid-30's, I still tend to get goosebumps at some of the clown encounters. Tim Curry's performance as Pennywise the Clown is nothing short of amazing. The simplistic opening with Pennywise being seen through the sheets of laundry is very eerie and disturbing with what's left up to your imagination to conjure. The music is equally as haunting and doesn't take more than ten seconds in before the hairs on my arm start to raise.

This adaptation is a fixture of my childhood, hence the high rating.
