It’s a great movie, scares me every time. — 30495847838282919

Overrated AF. Rather watch Stranger Things
★★★★
IT may be many things but scary is not one of them. Generic kids vs the evil monster story. The scenes don’t even go together. Just a bunch of random scenes trying to scary. There is zero atmosphere. I’d rather watch Stranger Things. — hockey sticks 78

Really good interpretation of the book. Casting was spot-on. — Mqrstkui

Could have been epic
★★★★★
But NO. Had a Goonie feel to it but failed. You don't eviscerate kid like hamburger and go home like nothing's wrong. Broken arms hurt like heck, ouch I guess it don't hurt the actors as much. It has scary parts so it gets a 3. — DeanSpears

Best horror movie!
★★★★
I usual don’t like a lot of r -rated horror movies. But this movie was way to exiting for me. I honestly feel this might be one the best horror movies out there . The only reason why I didn’t give this movie five stars is because I didn’t believe this movie was scary enough for me otherwise this would definitely have gotten five stars . I bought this in amazon for a late Christmas present . I literally could not wait too much longer. I can’t wait to see next chapter! . Being honest about it this movie feels more like a thriller vs a horror which I love a lot! . There a few scary parts but I felt that there were more comedy scenes. I can’t tell you how much I love being entertained! 😄😃😎😃😂😧😂😂😎🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩😮😮😮!!!! — Cool Taylor pop

Great movie! — Pennywisethe2018clown

Pretty good
★★★★
This movie was pretty good. I never read the book or saw the original. So this was the first time seeing the movie. I like scary movies and stuff like that. It is a long movie but it can keep your interest to make it not seem so long. Some movies you can lost interest if it drags on at a slow pace. But this one didn’t. It kept moving along. Things were happening in like ever scene. If you like scary movies this is a good one. If you don’t like clowns then watch at your own risk. Pretty good. — double digit

Amazing!
★★★★★
It was such a wonderful horror movie. As a lover of the genre, this new installment to the IT franchise was refreshing and did a great job with suspension and executing any truly scary scenes. I also genuinely enjoyed the fact that the “main” character had a speech impediment, something that I relate to so seeing another character with something I had made me feel included and represented. Along those lines, I believe you’ll see yourself in one of the “main” characters in the group of kids in this movie. It does a wonderful job fleshing out each one and giving each character a well-written backstory and personality in such a short time. Truly a great movie! — Asher Vex🍑

Wasn’t Very Good! Don’t Get The Hype
★★★★★
I didn’t like this movie at all. The effects were cheesy, it wasn’t scary, it felt like it was all over the place, and it also felt like it was missing something. I enjoyed the final battle but that was the one good part of the movie. It’s just to dark, the acting is poor and the original trumps this one by far. So don’t get your hopes up because I don’t get what all the hype is about. Save your money and your time and go watch something else — Caleb0748

Masterpiece
★★★★★
This was the best horror movie in 2017. The best horror movie in the last decade!! Creepy, spooky and lots of laughs. It is a must see for horror fans!! — Enclosure

It's got everything you could want in a horror movie
★★★★★
To keep the review short and simple---It's got everything you could want. It's ACTUALLY scary, hits all the right notes of nostalgia, has just enough comedic scenes for levity, and gives a pretty close depiction of the book. One caveat though--- it does skimp on some of the lore that can be found toward the end of the book and changes the time period from the 50s to the 80s (a great decision IMO). Overall, it's a fantastic adaption which is decidedly because of the fantastic actors (Skarsgård and all the kids). Definitely recommend giving it a watch! — kpickles156

It’s better than the original!
★★★★★
This was such an awesome scary movie with the funny yet huge jump scares added. I’m probably watching it every Halloween now 🎃 — Honestricky

Nasty Clown
★★★★
It was good, basically like the original one, but I could tell they are going to finish it with a sequel..The special effects were much better....Good movie, but it wasn’t as great as I had anticipated from all of the other reviews. — Trump girl

Won’t work
★★★★
Been trying for hrs to watch this and it won’t even play on my device. — Darkkelt

Best Horror Movie Ever

BEST MOVIE EVER!!!
★★★★★
IT was the greatest movie ever in history! IT has never felt so good to be scared!! — BEST MOVIE, SINCE LIKE EVER!!!

My Most Favorite Horror Movie So Far
★★★★★
This movie to me wasn’t about a killer clown trying to eat children. It was more about the fact that when friends are together, anything can be achieved. The way that the actors/actress portrayed that in the film, was very touching — Vaishakh Balu

Amazing Horror Film!!
★★★★★
It was funny, sad, and scary at the same time, can’t wait for the next one — PinkLover175

Meh
★★★★★
I was expecting more. It didn't really live up to the rave reviews. The children's characters weren't well developed and neither was the plot. It felt like a series of jump scares with a scary clown. I read this book growing up and was hoping for more from this movie. — James9791

Just ok...
★★★★★
Definitely wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. The kids in it were really good though and very funny. Overall just an average movie. — Kes8514

Love the movie but...
★★★★
I love this movie and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see it. But I have a problem with Apple I rented this movie on my iPad with This same account but now on my phone I can't seem to find it anywhere in any of my apps and now it is asking for me to repay money so that I can watch it and it also took the money out of my account on my phone and iPad so I know the accounts are synced — Cool jak

Meh
★★★★★
After hearing or reading the reviews I was anxious to see It. The movie didn’t live up to the hype. It’s intense. It’s gory. But in the end, not that frightening and not very well developed for a movie over two hours long. A bit disjointed at times. — tinbucktwo

Personal Opinion
★★★★★
I must admit, in the beginning when they began showing clips of advertisements to this movie I fears a hatchet job ... Just like the hatchet job they did on the re-make of Salem's Lot starring Rob Lowe .... I'm Happy to say.... This re-make or RE-BOOT Of ONE of MY PERSONAL FAVORITE BOOKS AND SUBSEQUENT MOVIE was done rather frightening .... The NEW PENNIWISE is just as Terrifying if not MORE TERRIFYING as the Original. I also truly enjoy the HUMOR , if you've read the BOOK..... You'd know there were quite a few humorous events and I'm pleased to say they ACTUALLY PULLED IT OFF, mind you it wasn't so much of BAM... IN YOUR FACEKIND OF HUMOR, ITS DONE WITH FINESS...... I just wish the Part Two re-make were available soon afterwards. I can't hardly waituntil, I believe next summer (I'm guessing summer of 2018 ?? ), Once the two are complete, I'm praying the movie theatres will present them as a DOUBLE FEATURE.... Though, they haven't done a double feature in many, many, moons, it would be perfect to see them back to back....... This movie remake wasVery Well Done. Thanks C.K.from Tacoma, WA. — Carebear1964

Not fun or scary
★★★★
Not sure what the big deal was with this movie. It's not scary and I didn't like the kids. The young girl was excellent. — 1Gossard

AMAZING!!!!
★★★★★
I loved that they keep ed the original scene and didn't make it too 2017-ish or more modern. All the gory scenes really made the movie more interesting. Amazing movie, really good job guys! This is my new favorite movie! — Horselover8962

Awesome
★★★★★
This movie was so good I saw it when the movie came out on 8th and I was really impressed bill skarsgård did a amazing job at playing Pennywise — Buschgardensfanboy

Truly a good movie.
★★★★★
Yes it’s a horror movie, actually scary and very creepy. I highly recommend. One of the best horror movies I’ve seen in a long time. I’m a fan of Bill Skarsgård and was thrilled when I found out he would be Pennywise. He fits the role phenomenally, and puts his own twist on the character. — MEisenhauer
