IT (2017): A Satisfying Adaption of an Ambitious Novel

26. IT (2017) – A Satisfying Adaption of an Ambitious Novel

IT destroyed box office records, solidifying the power of a well crafted R-rated horror blockbuster and reminded everyone of Stephen King’s prolific storytelling. And while this isn’t the first adaption of the over-one-thousand paged epic, it has become an absolute favorite for many. I mean, goodness, who doesn’t love a good coming-of-age story where a bunch of kids fight an insane clown?

Tune in Wednesday nights for new episodes of Cinematic Doctrine!

IT is Rated R for violence/horror, bloody images, and for language.

It features Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jaeden Martell, Wyatt Oleff, Sophia Lillis, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Bill Skarsgård.

Directed by Andy Muschietti.
