ITF Watch: It (1990 miniseries)

Return to Derry for the project that started it all this week with Tommy Lee Wallace’ 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s It. With “It Chapter 2” on the horizon, Luke & James round-out their exposure to the material by watching and weighing in on the Tim Curry performance as Pennywise that people still rave about today. But does this bit of nostalgia hold up? Find out in episode 104.

Topics include: Why IT chooses a clown for its form, the bizarre hurricane connection, the most striking reveal in the entire series, the Deadlights & other cosmic horror elements of the book that might make it on screen, predictions for Andy Muschietti’s “It Chapter 2,” and some reminiscing about the earliest episodes of the podcast.
