What. The. Hell. Did. I. Just. Watch.
When I first saw images from the upcoming film “It” on Twitter, I was immediately intrigued. I have never seen the original “It”(mainly because every time I think of Tim Curry, I think of comedic characters and I feel like seeing him as a murderous clown would take me out of my element, the same way Emma Watson’s acting in “Beauty and the Beast” did*), but I have always wanted to see the movie.
Since this was my first time watching anything related to this movie, I was not sure what to expect, but what I was NOT expecting was to be emotionally scarred for life.
At first, I thought that it would just be another jump scare-filled trailer with the appropriate cuts made the second the clown was about to get to the children. What I got was almost two minutes of anxiety inducing terror.
(Here’s the trailer, if you wanna check it out)
*Author’s Note: Admit it, Emma Watson as Belle was not anyone’s first choice. In the immortal words of RHOA’s Kenya Moore, don’t come for me unless I send for you.
