Trailer Review: IT (2017)

The very first trailer for the brand new adaptation of Stephen King's IT has dropped, and Lisa is here to give you her thoughts.  If you missed it, you can check out the trailer below:

The goal of a great trailer is to leave you wanting more, and the trailer for IT does just that.

The opening scene with Bill making the paper boat for his little brother Georgie was such a great, bittersweet moment, knowing that this would be the last time he would see him alive. It's these sort of emotionally charged pieces that separate this story from a lot of other horror.

Chills went up and down my spine when Georgie was pulled through the sewer. Then I heard those infamous words, "we all float down here".

The audience is introduced to the band of misfits who are destined to defeat the monster, who we also get some great shots of. It is wonderful that a whole new generation will be introduced to the greatness that is Stephen King.

And then there's the music. The score that played throughout the trailer had a very ominous undertone, which works perfectly for a film like this and sets the tone for the rest of the film.

I'm very much looking forward to this film because I love being scared, and Stephen King has a great talent for playing on the fears of his audience.  So hopefully this new adaptation will do his original work justice.

So what are you afraid of? Find out on September 8, 2017 when IT hits theaters.
