The first IT reactions promise a terrifying rollercoaster ride

We're creeping ever-closer to the return of dreaded clown Pennywise in IT – and the first reactions are now in.

By the sounds of it Bill Skarsgard's interpretation of the classic Stephen King monster is one for the ages, promising to inject a genuine dose of fear into your early autumn season. Here's what Collider journalist Haleigh Foutch has to say.

Yet as anyone who's read King's book knows, this isn't just a horror tale but also a coming of age story about a group of young kids coming to terms with their own fears. Writer Anthony Breznican says director Andres Muschietti nails this aspect of King's story.

Another Collider journo says the aforementioned Losers Club (comprising, among others, Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things) are the life and soul of this new adaptation.

MTV News editor Crystal Bell singles out relative newcomer - and potential scream queen – Sophia Lillis for praise. She plays Losers club member Beverly Marsh, one of the kids who must band together to defeat IT.

And finally, we'll leave it to another Collider writer, Mark E. Reilly, to sign off with this appropriately spine-tingling teaser.
