IT is in my top 20 favs of all time and top 3 of stephen King,The film is chilling and not many films get pushed through with a child killer storyline as untouched as this did, were any cuts ever applied from the original master??, even if they were there are some dicey taboo moments.

Years ago my mum and I were talking about the book "It" when we noticed through the window a bunch of balloons in the branches of a tree opposite our house!Spooked us both out for weeks.

I agree Loops, Prince of Darkness is very underrated mate.

Films with a surivial against all odds from violent gangs, crazy dudes, zombies etc scare me.
The scene in The Warriors were the Warriors break cover and run for the train, but the Turnbull AC's chase 'em in a bus , then on foot with melee weapons (b'ball bats, iron bars etc) along side the waiting train , scare's the s**t outta me still.
Realistic stuff like that frightens me.

The earliest memory of a movie/TV programme scaring me nearly to death in my childhood is from around '79/'80.
There was some strange 3 (?) part series running in the childrens' (!!!) programme in Germany, from which I only remember as much as a nuclear plant about to explode. The sounds of the alarm signals and sight of smoke and explosions simply drove me nuts!
The other bit is from '81/'82- I think, as my parents were watching a film(?)/TV series(?) set in the middle ages, with people fleeing from the "black death". The scenes I saw were spooky enough, but laying in my bed and still hearing the sounds from the living room didn't do my sleep any good either.

Watching the first 15 mins of "Jaws" on TV around '81, as I was about to learn swimming, wasn't probably the smartest idea too....

Holy crap!!
The book is a lot better/detailed than the film. There's a really evil character in it who tortures animals, yuck!! And he also "introduces" the head "bad kid" to the world of same-sex love....ahem! King really knows how to disturb huh?!!

I first saw it (aged 8) on the cinema in summer 1975, a few months after my family and I moved to Newquay. The water didn't exactly tempt me that year.

Newquay was on GMTV yesterday morning Vince.Don't think it was because of a great whith shark though.
Looks like a nice place to chill out.

One film that made me shit meself was THE GRUDGE (JU-ON)
Best watched with the lights out and the sound turned way up.......
