It can be anything. A fanged monster that won't stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but It isn't clowning around. Instead, It terrifies youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing some to their untimely doom -- until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later the evil resurfaces: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate stand against It.

MUCH better than the modern remake hands down! This classic scared me as a kid!

I just watched the new IT movie, and the older mini series is the best. The new one has great CGI but this one has better storyline that follows the book better. Both series have great young actors. But this one has no swearing, and less graphic gore.

This dvd killed my tv... I wish I was kidding. At about 3:30 am DVD player turned on and started playing this disc, when it got to the scene where penny wise pulls Georgie into the sewer the tv raised its volume to MAX volume as Georgie was being murdered, on its own! We coul not turn the tv off and couldn’t turn volume down, it wouldn’t let us even with manual controls. So we had to unplug tv to stop the madness!
In the morning the tv wouldn’t even turn back on.
I would have to say that was the SCARIEST way to be woken up ever!
This movie was scary beyond belief because it decided to come in in the middle of the night by itself and scare the ever living life out of me and my beau. 5 stars scary.

I normally don't watch horror or thrillers, but I wanted to compare the old version with the new version. I liked the older version better. I missed flipping the disc over to see the other side. :(

Better than the 2018 remake- watch it for Tim Curry's performance as Pennywise.

I decided to watch this version, after having watched the 2017 release. I found this version almost the same as the newer one, with two big differences. The first is that this one shows us the adults as they re-experience their childhood contact with IT, and plan to meet again as promised while children, if IT ever came back. The second is that it is not done as well, as I found it to be disjointed and never did see what the point of having the adults brought back into it.

I did not find it as creepy as the latest version, nor did I find that the Children were as much as a fit, whether it being the acting or the script. One reviewer said this version was closer to the book, but this version does not want me to read the book for any clarification either. I did not even want to look at the extras.

I watched this IT movie, when I was the age of the little boy. It haunts children man... My entire grade 8 class also watched it on our bus trip to Quebec. Nobody complained about nothing man. Not one thing...

this version IS a made for tv mini series from 1990, not the new one from a few months ago. i would've thought john ritter being dead for 14 years might have tipped you off

you need to flip the disc over to watch the second half

the movie itself seemed more like a made for TV movie, it actually felt more like I was watching an old episode of the X-Files, lower grade production than you'd expect for a box office movie.
