Well, it’s official: the book-to-film adaptation of Stephen King’s It has wrapped,and it’s safe to say that Andres Muschietti‘s impending remake is one of the most eagerly anticipated horror movies of 2017. Which, as terrified of clowns as I am, is understandable considering that it’s an adaptation of Stephen King‘s fan favorite 1986 novel of the same name. Need further evidence that this film might terrify you? Well pretty much everything that’s been released regarding 2017’s It has, rather helpfully, been terrifying. Which now includes this Jack In The Box toy to celebrate the end of its production that is set to sink into your brain and into your nightmares; just so it can haunt you for weeks. This weathered jack-in-the-box with Pennywise – as the clown – popped out shares the same design as the photograph that came out earlier this year. [The jack-in-the-box picture will be posted below!]
It opens upon with the murder of a child by the name of George Denbrough in the fall of 1988, who is killed inside the storm drain of a small town. Close to a year later, in the summer of 1989, George Denbrough‘s older brother Bill gathers together a group of his friend to try and find the murderer. What they don’t know is that the murder was actually committed by an evil entity known as Pennywise, who awakens every three decades as an ageless, shapeshifting demon..
For those interested, Barbara Muscietti‘s Instagram is packed full of images from It’s shoot. So those of you that are looking to devour every little bit of information that you can regarding this horror remake should immediately head over to her page to increase your excitement for the film. I’m trying to avoid it, both because of spoilers and that fear of clowns keeps looming over my shoulder!
Now I turn to You – the reader. Are You excited for It? Why or why not?

ALSO, on a quick note: seeing as it’s almost October, I have been in the slow process of starting the plans for this year’s Weirdo’ween, so keep an eye open for more on that – it may not be as extravagant as last year’s one movie a day [I’m super busy with two jobs, and my college prep!] but there definitely will be something!
