The original 1990 It movie is very special to horror fans. How many budding young coulrophobics developed and deepened their fear of clowns to Tim Curry's inimitable performance as Pennywise?
With the emotional attachment the horror community has to the 1990 It movie, there's a fair amount of pressure on the 2017 reboot to bring the scares, and you may be reassured to hear from producer Dan Lin that It will be no PG-13 effort. Lin told Collider:
'''It' is a rated-R movie. If you’re going to make a Rated-R movie, you have to fully embrace what it is, and you have to embrace the source material. It is a scary clown that’s trying to kill kids. So of course that’s going to be a rated-R movie. The kids are amazing. You very much get a 'Stand by Me' vibe as far as their camaraderie and the way they joke with each other and that they really care for each other. They do have a scary crown that’s taken over the town of Derry, so it’s going to be rated R.
I wonder if they'll reproduce the infamous shower scene?
