LOS ANGELES: Here's the good news: Pennywise is as creepy as ever in the new "It". Thanks to a bigger budget and some improved special effects, some 27 years later he really gets the chance to spook the kids of Derry, Maine. One of the "Stranger Things" kids even has a part in "It" – Finn Wolfhard playing the jokester Richie.There are a few guaranteed jump-out-of-your-seat moments, including the flawlessly rendered opening with Frankie, the toy boat and the sewer that has continued to haunt generations of kids who either read King's book or caught the now-cheesy-looking miniseries on TV too young.With the R-rating, you do have to wonder who this "It" is really for – the now-grown kids of the '80s and '90s who were traumatized the first time around and can't get enough of their own nostalgia? Or is it just a dare for the under-17 crowd, who are more likely to forgive the story flaws and just submit to the scares?
