It (1990)

In 1960, seven outcast kids who are known as ‘The Lucky Seven’ have to fight and defeat an evil demon who can shapeshift into a clown called Pennywise and feed on children’s fears and kill them.

30 years later, when a mysterious serial-killer attacks children in Derry, Maine, the local librarian Mike Hanlan (Tim Reid) – a now grown up member of the Lucky Seven – calls his childhood friends who are now all successful professionals.

Bill Denbrough (Richard Thomas) is a writer of horror novels that is working with his wife Audra (Olivia Hussey) in a movie in Hampstead, England. Award-winning architect Ben Hanscom (John Ritter) is living in Houston, Texas. Designer Beverly Marsh (Annette O’Toole) is in Chicago while entrepreneur Eddie Kaspbrack (Dennis Christopher) is in Great Neck, New York.

Comedian Richie Tozier (Harry Anderson) lives in Beverly Hills, and Stanley Uris (Richard Masur) is in Atlanta, Georgia.

Each of them recalls when Bill’s brother Georgie (Tony Dakota) was murdered back in 1960 by Pennywise (Tim Curry) and how Bill had summoned them to defeat the creepy monster in the sewer of the town.

They also recall their oath to reunite and fight against Pennywise in case of its return.

Based on one of Stephen King’s longest novels, It was originally broadcast as a two-part television miniseries and paved the way for telemovies and miniseries’ in the future to push the envelope far more than ever before.
