Andy Muschietti Amerika Syarikat, 2017

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film It: Chapter One

Other than Beverley, none of the characters register beyond two-dimensional tropes. The film dumps a lot of the historical mystery from the book in favour of CGI kill scenes, sped-up monster effects & every horror movie cliché from the last 30 years. The pop music montages were grating also. Weirdly critics took issue with von Trier's latest but had no problem with the graphic images of children being mutilated here?
