I like Stephen King's story likes 'Shining', 'The Mist' but definitely not this one.
The story is stupid, The cast are kids and they are all inexperienced, The budget is extremely low. The whole movie is so weak that all the scary and creepy parts are already shown in the couples of trailers in here. So, what is the point of spending extra money and time to watch this movie? Crazy!
King is great making this kind of stories.
Movie was excellent. :)
The younger actors were incredible talented to act in this type movie. It’s a hard topic. They pulled out perfectly the roles. Wishing they continuing this kind of career.
Left the Movie in half-an hour because it is so boring
Terrible story, Bad movie
I loved this movie, creepy scenes and i just love stephen king movies
The typical touch of King was reflected in this movie. I loved the style. Creepy me out. Those kids were heroes trying to rescue their friends.
Yes, just go and see it, good movie.
Yes, love this movie
Love this movie.
This movie was the perfect movie for scary scenes. The clown was creepy. The kids were wonderful actors.
The story is amazingly bad and low class. can tell this is a very low budget movie. Want to put negative score here but this option is unavailable.
Surprise to see the cinema was empty even though the reviews saying how good this movie is. Found out in half an hour that it is so boring, left without wasting additional time.
An amazing classic story.
an instant classic
My money is not easy to earn, not recommend to anyone to watch this movie.
Don't expect anything scary.
Those creepy pictures like the woman’s painting.
The movie was scary. My two cents from the USA.
Don’t know why they used a yellow rain jacket for both movies. Probably the first scene needed get more dramatic. One thing amazes me is the make up of the clown. They did a good job with this one. We need a sequel.
I like how the kids fought the clown. The movie had some funny scenes. The mom who was paranoid about his kid’s health was funny.
The red balloon was creepy. The library part was a scary part.
One comment has it right. It's the mood of the movie, the music and the story more than the outright booo scares. That's why it's the highest grossing horror movie of all time.
Now I am 100 times more upset than what I have been after I was misled by those high scores reviews to watch this movie two weeks ago. I find it not scary at all and I left halfway of the movie as it was so boring, I went home and I posted my genuine reviews in Tribute.ca saying this movie "is not scary" as I believe I have the right to let everyone know I am totally disappointed because I did spend my money and my precious time.
Really well done, up there for best Stephen King adaptation. I cant wait for Chapter 2.
The movie was creepy but no so scary. I loved the film.
Low, Low budget film, that is why don't expect too much
Wanted to see the scariest part of this non-scary movie? Watch the trailer and you can save your time and money.
Classic story. The king is the best. Yes. The movie followed exactly the book story.
True to the Book- Very Rare Indeed. Great casting of the actors. Classic King
Do you have Netflix? Save your money and watch Stranger Things. Same boys (in one case exactly the same boy) with girl sidekick fighting evil, but much better. Easy to see where it's going. Boring and disappointing.
wasted a perfect nite- the movie was a complete 0 i don't believe i every saw one worse don't waste your time or money
I saw the movie today with my friends and we loved the story. Not exactly a perfect horror movie but enough to had a good time. The end was weird. The kids swimming with the girl was funny. She did a good job representing that type of character. I did not like the farm scenes.
I am giving 5 stars because they brough back some pieces from the original movie. I saw the movie twice. The first time to see how the new reboot was going to looks like it. and the second time was part of my class homework. Analyzing creepy stories and reviews in the media. Btw thanks for the bad and good reviews. I needed those type of comments to finish my homework for next Monday.
There are tons of movies better than this one. Save your money and time.
