IT movie director did THIS to the kids to make Pennywise even more horrifying


There a few things more scary than a clown.

Stephen King’s iconic terror is already utterly, well, terrifying.

However Andres Muschetti, the director of the new movie adaptation, has revealed how he made sure that his spine-chilling leading man was even more frightening.

His methods make perfect sense in their ruthlessly brutal exposure of what truly horrifies and traumatises children (and adults) in the modern day.

He said: “The story is the same, but there are changes in the things the kids are scared of. In the book they’re children in the 1950s, so the incarnations of the monsters are mainly from movies, so it’s Wolf Man, the Mummy, Frankenstein, Dracula.

“I had a different approach. I wanted to bring out deeper fears, based not only on movie monsters but on childhood traumas.”

Muschetti basically scared his characters with a horrifying clown who can embody and call up the emotional and psychological fears and damages they suffer as they are growing up.

Bill Skarsgard plays Pennywise in the new movie and admits that he wasn’t prepared for how muchhis appearance woudl frighten teh young actors on set.

He said: “This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, “Action!” And when they say “action,” I am completely in character.

“So some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, ‘Holy sh**. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible.'”
