Gia de Almeida's rating of the film It: Chapter One

The first half drags a bit with introducing all the kids, Pennywise and the historical background but then it picks up. While it isn't scary 'per se' it's a triumph for modern horror, the characters are nicely rounded, the surrounding plots (with the hypochondriac mum, abusive dad...) are engrossing, the aesthetics and a nice score along with good acting by everyone involved makes this a winner.
