The It movie Honest Trailer takes us back to the "idyllic child murder capital of America"
IT was one of the biggest blockbusters of 2017, so it's not surprising that Andy Muschietti's movie has received the Honest Trailer treatment.
Screen Junkies in fact asked its fans to pick which films from last year they wanted to see an Honest Trailer for, and IT came in third place.
The video starts by reminding us that Stephen King, who wrote the 1986 source novel, is the master of horror, suspense and "really inconsistent movie adaptations".
It then goes on to acknowledge the plight of real clowns, who complained that IT had put them out of business.
Suggesting the movie might not be totally original, the Losers Club is described as being "full of Goonies and Lost Boys", and the video highlights the stereotypical nature of the leader, the tomboy girl, the nerd, and the "others" who blend into the background.
