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).

Opening This Week – Annabelle: Creation, The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

 


 

Annabelle: Creation

Anxiously awaiting the fourth film in The Conjuring series? Annabelle: Creation opens this week and has been described as a movie that “finally gets it right for the living doll.”

Annabelle: Creation is the origin story of the demonic doll, who was introduced in the 2013 movie, The Conjuring. The Conjuring was widely received as a success, while Annabelle fell short of audience expectations. Luckily, the Annabelle: Creation has given the spin off series hope.

Annabelle, a beloved 7-year-old daughter of Sam and Esther Mullins, is killed in a tragic car accident.  Several years later, the grieving couple welcome in a group of Catholic, orphaned girls into their home as a haven after their orphanage is unlivable. In no time, Janice and her BFF Linda, stumble upon the dead daughter’s old bedroom and find a doll that has taken on a life of its own.

Surly, the purple squirrel and his park animal friends inhabit a new, luscious park. Soon, they are over powered by a corrupt mayor who wants to bulldoze their beloved home replace it with an amusement park. To save their new home from the corrupt mayor, Surly enlists the help from a street gang of mice to help thwart the Mayor’s plan and save their home.
