Taylor Jefferson – Mustangs ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- On Sept. 8, the remake of Stephen King’s classic movie “IT” was released into theaters throughout the world.

The new thriller made $117-million its opening weekend.

“It was a record breaking opening, breathing a little life back into the slumping domestic box office,” stated Brad Brevet of box office mojo.

The drama-filled movie scored an 8/10 on IMBD and an 85% on Rotten tomatoes.

Mustangs who have seen the film have varying opinions.

“I was expecting it to be scarier than it was,” said senior Sarah Watts, “I thought it was a really good movie and it was definitely creepy.”

Senior Mike Rogers said, “It was a really great movie, my favorite part has to be the projector scene because of all the suspense.”

Although thrillers are a popular movie genre, many people are afraid of these types of movies because of clowns, vampires, and many other “scary” characters.

“I am afraid of clowns because last year at Howl-o-Scream one chased me, so now I don’t like them,” said senior Daniel Wilkinson

Some students refuse to see the new movie because of their fear.

“I have never really liked clowns, so I really don’t want to see IT,” junior Brady Roberts said.
