Pennywise from IT dancing to Taylor Swift and the Macarena is fantastic

Pennywise has the IT factor.

The movie adaptation of Stephen King's novel of the same name has been out for a couple weeks - and it's become a huge hit with horror fans and non-horror fans alike.

Bill Skarsgård's portrayal of the demonic Pennywise has pushed the film towards becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie ever, overtaking Deadpool, according to Forbes.

But there's one scene from the movie - where Pennywise does a eerie song-and-dance routine for Beverley - has captured the attention of the internet.

So, of course, there's been plenty of memes of the scene floating around.

A parody twitter account called @Pennywise_Dance has the title character of It proving he can boogie with the best of them.

The demonic creature can be seen busting out his best dance moves  to a series of popular songs, from Taylor Swift's Shake It Off to the always catchy Barbie Girl by Aqua.

Pennywise even slows it down for some tunes, like Elton John's Can You Feel The Love Tonight.

The account gave a nod to Stephen King, as it sent a video specifically aimed at one of his previous tweets.

The author jokingly tweeted in June of this year that "Mambo #5" would be the one song he'd listen to for the rest of his life if he could only pick one.

And @Pennywise_Dance was quick to send King a version of It busting out his best moves to the Lou Bega tune.
