Best horror movie of 2017

By: Nautica Leon

When you think of clowns, you envision kids birthday parties, face painting, balloons, cake, fun times, etc. They are also great entertainers at circuses around the world. But what if clowns were actually a vicious, nerve-racking, murderous demons? Pennywise, played by the incredibly talented actor, Bill Skarsgård is a killing clown that targets children. Directed by Andres Muschietti, “It” is based on Stephen King’s 1986 thriller and the 1990 film by the same name.  The 2017 new version has earned a ranking of 85% from Rotten Tomatoes.  It was a box office hit, making $600 million!  NY Times critic A. O. Scott said, “As a coming of age parable, IT succeeds at being both horrifying and emotionally-resonant, even while adapting only half of King’s original story.” And John Nugent from Empire shares “Focusing entirely on the childhood-set portions of King’s book, it’s a collection of alternately terrifying, hallucinatory, and ludicrous nightmare imagery.”  “IT” is now available in Blu-ray, DVD, and digital in your local stores ranging from $16-30!
