Celebrity News: This Friday the remake of ‘IT’, a horror film of 1990 based on a novel by Stephen King was released. The new version manages to give a twist to this story, making it more truculent and bloody and of course, more frightening. It tells the story of a diabolical creature that begins a hunting of children in a small town and to which only a young gang will face.
Stephen King told in the prologue to one of his books that he had no irrational fears, but that he did not let his hand hang down the side of the bed … just in case something came up and grabbed it. That terror to what could have been in the deep and dark places has been masterfully exploited by director Andy Muschietti in the remake of the IT horror classic.
The story of the clown Pennywise, a crusade that comes back every 27 years to hunt children in the small town of Derry, Maine, seemed hard to beat. But although the cinematographic adaptation of this novel of King in 1990 was made with total dignity (one of the few tapes that managed not to destroy a novel of the master of the terror) the one that premiered this Friday manages to make that devilish universe is even more truculent and bloody and of course, more frightening.
In this twist of Muschietti and the screenwriters (Gary Dauberman, Chase Palmer, and Cary Fukunaga) have achieved that in addition to supernatural and paranormal elements, there are worldly terrors, carrying the characters with a day to day that is not less harsh and desperate than his fateful fight with Pennywise. “Together we will win,” said the members of the Losers Club, the seven pre adolescents who, making pineapples, are the last hope to stop the chain of disappearances.
The film has a Stand by Me component is driven into agony, to the desperation to survive. In IT, fear creeps like water through a leak, taking advantage of that gap between innocent childhood and the passage to adult life, the muddy time in which the young people of this film live.
