The remake of Stephen King's IT is already on the right track after its first trailer left audiences screaming in fear. I wish i had a pound for every nightmare i had of this film when i was a kid!
The highly anticipated second adaptation of the iconic horror writer's classic book is coming to the big screen, and fans have been left terrifying after the debut teaser was shown at the South By South West film festival this week.
Bill Skarsgård will pick up the mantel of creepy clown Pennywise - made famous on the big screen by Tim Curry - in the movie, which looks set to honour the 1990 original in the best way.
Although the trailer isn't available online yet, dedicated horror website 'Bloody Disgusting' has revealed what's to come with a report from the event.
"The trailer opens with footage of Bill Denbrough making a paper boat for his little brother Georgie. We then move outside, where Georgie is chasing his boat in a rainstorm as it floats next to the curb," the description details.
"Suddenly, Georgie runs right into a street barrier, which knocks him down on the ground. He then watches as his boat sails into a gutter.
"He runs to the gutter and tries to see if he can see his boat. As he looks deep into the sewers, Pennywise abruptly appears before the screen cuts to black.”
The Loser's Club is heavily featured as they look through pictures on a carousel slide project which takes on a life of his own.
"As the projector moves from slide to slide, the hair moves out of [Georgie's] mother's face, and her face is revealed to be that of Pennywise itself," it continues, before the trailer goes through a "flurry of shots".

"The most striking image from this succession of shots is the unforgettable moment when blood flows out of Beverly’s sink, only in Muschietti’s film it spews out like a geyser and blasts her in the face.
"There is also a sublime image of Pennywise approaching two of the children (he has them cornered against a wall), but the shot is framed in a way so that only his long, bony fingers fill the screen. The children are in the background, out of focus but clearly terrified.”
In the final moments of the teaser, it's reported that Loser's Club leader Bill is seen walking into his flooded basement before Pennywise rushes at him - which left those watching screaming.
Stephen King's IT is set to hit the big screen in September 2017.
