There’s a documentary about Pennywise from IT and it looks incredibly creepy

Paul Moore

You’ll be sleeping with the lights on.

There’s something about those villains from your childhood that just seem to increase the trauma levels tenfold.

If you’re of the opinion that The Witches, The Child Catcher or the Umpa Lumpas are the scariest thing alive – yep, some people are terrified of Willy Wonka’s helpers – then it’s very likely that Pennywise the clown absolutely scared the living s**t out of you.

Yep, poor little Georgie never saw what was coming in that sewer.

Aside from tormenting and murdering the children of Derry, Maine, Tim Curry’s remarkable performance has also managed to spread coulrophobia to the masses.

If you’re eager to see the new IT film, you’ll love Pennywise: The Story of IT which is an upcoming documentary that’s being made with the cooperation of Tim Curry and the director of the 1986 mini-series, Tommy Lee Wallace.

According to their fundraising page, the documentary is a “fully independent retrospective into the making of Stephen King’s IT and its cultural impact over the last 28 years. Supported by dozens of the original cast and crew including Tim Curry, Tommy Lee Wallace and Bart Mixon Pennywise is made by fans of the IT for fans of IT. The crew have already received support from over 20 of the cast and crew, including acquiring over 2 hours of never-before-seen set footage from SFX wizard Bart Mixon, as well as loads of archival and behind-the-scenes photos and there is no doubt that by the time of production many more key players will be attached to share their amazing stories about one of the most iconic movies ever-made.”

If Pennywise still terrifies you, look away now.
