Happy Tuesday, everyone! One of my favorite movies of 2017 is out on home video today. Stephen King’s It. There is a Best Buy exclusive steelbook and a Target exclusive available.
Best Buy Steelbook
Seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, shape-shifting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Banding together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to battle the murderous, bloodthirsty clown known as Pennywise. – New Line Cinema
This movie is absolutely fantastic it’s so much fun. I’d even say fun for the whole family. It is the perfect gateway horror movie for kids thinking they are brave enough for a horror film. The movie has it’s fair share of scares but it has even more laughs. The reason for the laughs is the cast, the kids in this movie are excellent. The cast has so much chemistry they really are the Loser’s Club. Seriously I just loved everything about this movie. Can’t wait to watch it again. One of the best Stephen King adaptations to date.
