When Beverley takes her dad's measuring tape to explore her bathroom sink's drain, she drops the tape in the sink when she is being wrapped up by the gunk shooting from the drain. After the blood explodes from the drain and coats the bathroom, there is a shot of the the bloody sink but the tape is not there. The shot is at a bit of an angle, but the tape should definitely be visible in the sink as shown. See more »

Terrifyingly brilliant. You'll float too.
31 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

What persuaded me to watch this movie was the blessing bestowed upon it by the stories original creator, Stephen King, who claimed: "I wasn't prepared for how good it really was".

He's not wrong.

"IT" is quite extraordinary. The attention to detail, the subtle but effective comedic undertone and the exquisite cinematography not only do the original title proud, they make this re-imagining of the original classic even better than its predecessor.

It's a very scary film but what impressed me was how true the film sticks to the original's tricks; it isn't filled with loud in-your-face jump scares, in fact, a lot of what makes this film scary is the slick cinematography and intricate shadow play. The use of lighting and creation of atmosphere is what makes this film so tense, which is why it's perfectly suited for those who like Horror movies but without the obnoxious gore.

Watched the pre-release as a critic - August 28th.
