Stephen King's It! (DVD)
It can be anything. A fanged monster that won't stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King. Based on the King Of Horror's 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but he's not clowning around. Instead, he terrifies youngsters and brings some to their untimely doom - until some wily kids fight back. The evil resurfaces 30 years later: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And friends who vividly remember youthful terrors reunite to fight It.]]>
Is there anything scarier than clowns? Of course not. And who knows scary better than Stephen King? You see where we're going. It puts a malevolent clown (given demented life by a powdered, red-nosed Tim Curry) front and center, as King's fat novel gets the TV-movie treatment. Even at three hours plus, the action is condensed, but an engaging Stand by Me vibe prevails for much of the running time. The seven main characters, as adolescents, conquered a force of pure evil in their Maine hometown. Now, the cackling Pennywise is back, and they must come home to fight him--or, should we say, It--again. Admitting the TV-movie trappings and sometimes hysterical performances, this is a genuinely gripping thriller. As so often with King, the basic idea (the bond formed during a childhood trauma) is clean and powerful, a lifeline anchored in reality that leads us to the supernatural. --Robert HortonSee all Editorial Reviews

I purchased "IT" when it became available after the show. I'm anxious to see what it will look like on Blue Ray. It's a great story, a great TV film, and an even more awesome reboot.
But, if I had to introduce horror to a mind unaccustomed to the genre, I would give them THIS VERSION FIRST, so they'd get an understanding of the journey most of took with King leading us all the way.
If you haven't read the book, do! The original miniseries didn't have the time to give you as much of the back story and history of Derry as the two newer movies will. Can't wait till the second film comes out!
If you're a fan of the book and/or have seen the new version of "It" you owe it to yourself to see the original miniseries so buy "It"! ;)
I immediately noticed the poor acting right off the bat, which makes it very difficult to be drawn in. On top of that the clown, who was supposed to be terrifying, just simply did nothing for me. I wasn't scared of him at all.
Overall, the film just seemed cheesy, like a low budget film. Perhaps this film would be scary for children, but to adults not at all.
I'm still planning on seeing the new movie. Hopefully that one will be better in terms of acting and scaring viewers.
