Having watched The Dark Tower I have decided to have a Stephen King session and would like to watch the latst version of IT which is out on DVD Soon, I may also watch the original 1990 Tim Curry version. The latest film is set in the town of Derry and starts In 1988, with stuttering teenager Bill Denbrough giving his seven-year-old brother, Georgie, a paper sailboat. Georgie sails the boat along the rainy streets Before encountering a clown named “Pennywise the Dancing Clown” with tragic results. The following summer, Bill and his friends (loudmouth Richie Tozier, hypochondriac Eddie Kaspbrak, and timid Stan Uris) run afoul of bully Henry Bowers and his gang. Bill. Having narrowly escaped Bowers Bill convinces his friends to explore a marshy wasteland called the Barrens to look for Georgie.
“New kid” Ben Hanscom discovers that the town has been plagued by unexplained tragedies and child disappearances for centuries. He is targeted by Bowers’ gang for being fat, and flees into the Barrens where he meets Bill’s group. They find the shoe of a missing girl. Meanwhile a member of the pursuing Bowers Gang, Patrick Hockstetter, encounters Pennywise in the Sewer with tragic results. The group also befriends Beverly Marsh, a girl ostracized over rumors of promiscuity and homeschool student Mike Hanlon after defending him from Bowers. They discover that each member of the group has also encountered various terrifying phenomena and they begin to suspect that they are all being terrorized by the same evil entity.
They discover that Pennywise (or “It”) assumes the appearance of what they fear, awakens every 27 years to feed on the children of Derry before returning to hibernation, and moves about by using sewer lines—which all lead to a well currently under the creepy, abandoned house at 29 Neibolt Street. After an attack by Pennywise, the group ventures into the house to confront him, only to be separated and terrorized by Pennywise.
Weeks later, Beverly confronts and incapacitates her sexually abusive father, unfortunately she is abducted by Pennywise. So The Losers Club reassembles and travels back to the Neibolt house to rescue her. Henry Bowers, who has killed his Father also attacks the group but Mike fights back. The Losers descend into the sewers and find It’s underground lair, which contains a mountain of decayed circus props and children’s belongings, around which the bodies of missing children float in mid-air. Pennywise then captures Bill, so The Losers Club decide to confront Pennywise.
