Pennywise Speaks in the Final Terrifying Trailer for It

With only a month and a half left to go, Warner Bros. has released another (and presumably the final) trailer for Andres Muschietti's upcoming adaptation of Stephen King's "It," featuring a fair amount of new footage.

The story, which focuses on a group of kids being terrorized by an evil creature in the form of a clown, was first adapted into a miniseries starring Tim Curry in 1990, and while that version wasn't particularly successful (outside of Curry's lauded performance as Pennywise), it has become something of a cult classic with some fans. This new version, on the other hand, looks to be going the extra mile to provide a number of thrills and chills, which the original version mostly lacked.

It's seems rarer and rarer that we get good horror movies these days, so I, for one, am really hoping that this ends up being as good as the trailers have made it look so far. If done right, King's story is one that could be truly terrifying, even if you don't particularly have a fear of clowns. Luckily we don't have too much longer to wait before the film finally hits theaters.

"It," starring Bill Skarsgard, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, and Nicholas Hamilton, finally arrives in theaters on September 8th, 2017.
