Drama, Horror

A group of bullied kids band together when a monster, taking the appearance of a clown, begins hunting children.

The critical consensus

More successful as a coming-of-age movie than a horror, It still ranks among the better Stephen King adaptations — no small praise indeed.

****(*)John Nugent, Empire Online, 06/09/2017

Thrilling and haunting, pitching the power of adventure and friendship against the day-to-day horrors of childhood and a chilling Pennywise. An absolute scream.

****(*)Jamie Graham, Total Film, 06/09/2017

A satanic leering clown who wants to trap kids in a sewer is terrifying, but this lively adaptation wants to squeeze in all the horror effects we’ve already seen.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 06/09/2017

This engaging take on Stephen King's chiller delivers more than enough frights.

***(*)(*)Katherine McLaughlin, Little White Lies, 06/09/2017

A teen horror melodrama that delivers on multiple levels. Roll on chapter two.

****(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 06/09/2017

It's the kind of horror that doesn't feel the need to rely on jump scares or booming musical cues, but reels you in with empathy. We understand these characters, we understand so painfully their fears. That's the kind of horror that nestles deep inside your brain. It's the kind that follows you home.

****(*)Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent, 06/09/2017

The result is an energetic romp with crowd-pleasing appeal that isn’t afraid to bare its gory teeth. While it may not be as frightening as some hardened horror fans desire, the archetypal terrors and fundamental friendships of King’s source are slickly transferred to the screen with a ghoulish enthusiasm that proves hard to resist.
