IT

Horror movies have mastered the art of making everyday things terrifying. Showers, Hallways, telephone calls, mirrors, the list goes on. But, what the genre has truly perfected is making childhood toys and entertainment the creepiest elements possible. Do you cringe when you hear a nursery rhyme or see a porcelain doll? Initially, these things were innocent entertainment pieces. Now, their innocence is warped and mangled.

Clowns are a classic example. What comes to your mind when you think of clowns? It probably isn’t laughter and joy. Stephen King’s horror novel, IT, sparked fear into the hearts of many when he capitalized on the idea of the cheery mask hiding a true sinister persona.

In Medieval culture, clowns were a popular form of entertainment to bring humor into everyday situations. In most literature, like the fool in Shakespeare’s King Lear, there was always a disturbing truth that was masked by the clown’s humor. Horror thrives on hyperbole so, when you mix the original intention of clowns with a sinister spin, the clown becomes an ideal petrifying archetype. Remember, no one has a permanent smile except for The Joker.

The highly anticipated remake of the 1990 horror classic, IT, arrives in theaters the first week of September.

Synopsis of IT

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, neighborhood kids band together to square off against Pennywise, an evil clown whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.” (IMDB).
