It (2017): The Surprising Subversiveness of Beverly Marsh

Going into It, my expectations weren’t high. After all, it’s an adaptation of a book whose sole female character is largely defined by sexual violence and exploitation through an adult male gaze. Yet, as well as being a surprisingly well-crafted horror movie, this new adaptation reclaims Beverly Marsh’s sexuality as something quietly subversive.

Get Freaked Out by Pennywise for the First Time All Over Again With the Losers Club Actors

It is now the highest-grossing horror movie of all time—in the United States, at least—not accounting for inflation, having surpassed The Exorcist. That's due in no small part to Bill Skarsgård's incredibly freaky Pennywise, who will never let you look at a clown the same way again, regardless of your existing feelings on them.

What the It Remake’s Changes Leave Out About Trauma

I can’t fault the decision to truncate the story, but saving the adult half of It's storyline for later alters the tone of the narrative in fundamental ways that have mostly gone unaddressed.

Pennywise the Clown Runs the Worst IT Department

This sketch from the Late Late Show is very silly, but it's also very dear to my heart as someone who has had to deal with writing It as a movie/book title, along with the name of a murderous fictional entity, at work. It just never sounds right, no matter how clear you try to be, with the eventual choice being a tradeoff between clarity and awkwardness.

Ease Your Experience of IT This Weekend By Desensitizing Yourself to Creepy-Ass Clowns

OK, so contrary to all our better instincts, we're probably all going to go see IT when it opens on Friday. To help smooth the process, check out this neat IT art and cosplay that maybe kinda sorta makes Pennywise a little less scary? Maybe? (Probably not, but it's worth a try.)

Stop Making Me Want to See IT When I Don’t Wanna See IT, Stephen King!

IT. WILL. MAKE. ME. CRY.

Damn it. DAMN IT. Why does this movie look so good? Why did this featurette make me want to see this freaking movie even more. I hate movies like this. You know what I don't hate? Sleeping well. Which I won't do for at least a month if I see this movie. DAMN YOU, FEATURETTE!

Sitting Here Patiently Waiting for the Male Outrage Over These Clown-Only IT Screenings

Those guys sure had a lot to say about Wonder Woman.

I mean, fair is fair. Surely these are true men of principles and not mere attention-hungry, concern-trolling misogynists. I'm sure we'll be hearing from them any minute now, with their angry tweets and their threats of boycotts, and their pointless retaliatory self-funded movie screenings. That would be the ethical move here.

It, This Year’s Other Stephen King Movie, Is Getting Great Early Reactions

If The Dark Tower was a disappointment to Stephen King fans, it looks like It will give them something to be happy about this year—once they get over the resurgence of their coulrophobia. If early reactions are anything to go by (admittedly not reliably), It delivers not only on the scares you'd expect, but on a surprising amount of humor and heart, as well, for a well-rounded movie experience.
