[Stephen King] always develops those like coming-of-age characters really well and I totally think that they hit the mark the casting was perfect.

A tad too long but makes up for its indulgent length with handsome production design and solid performances from the kids, especially Lieberher and Lillis.

IT proves remakes can easily make a name for themselves, improving on the old but creating an entirely new frightening, fun time.
December 30, 2020
A touching, scary and compelling adaptation of Stephen King's tome.

Countering the standard horror is an unusual sense of adventure, which plays nicely against the irrational courage of the kids.
November 5, 2020
One of the best King adaptations in decades.

Easily one of 2017's most pleasant surprises.

The young cast is excellent, but focusing solely on them lessens the haunted weight of the novel. Their backstories feel a little rushed, suggesting It would have been better served as a Stranger Things-style mini-series

The script, however, is the main issue, trying but largely failing to flesh out its peripheral characters and their respective domestic lives.

Despite how terrifying Pennywise is, the film never loses its essence: the youthful innocence and psychological growth of its protagonists. [Full review in Spanish]

"It" takes metaphorical childhood hopes and fears and gives them literal form. The film tells a tale of growing up, of coming to terms with the reality of the world where monsters surround us.
June 30, 2020
It is a genuinely frightening horror film, delivering all of the scares present in the source novel.
May 13, 2020
Not just a fairly faithful adaptation of the massive book with a handful of wise adjustments and edits made, but it's an artfully realized work that cares more about establishing characters than simply lining up a series of cheap scares.
April 9, 2020
The serious dramatic themes ring hollow, however, leaving only the paperback boogety boogety to justify the Oscar-bait running time.
February 19, 2020
Overall, however, we've got ourselves a very solid tale of kids going up against an unspeakable horror...

What we are left with feels like a collection of related spooky scenes, with no overarching message other than a rather ham-fisted one about how friendship is great.
