Based on King's 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear starring Harry Anderson, Annette O'Toole, John Ritter, and Richard Thomas. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown (Tim Curry), but he's not clowning around. Instead, he terrifies youngsters and brings some of their untimely doom - until some wily kids fight back. The evil resurfaces 30 years later: meaner, angrier, and deadlier. And friends who vividly remember youthful terrors reunite to battle It.
