There has been a lot of hype surrounding the film adaptation of Stephen King's phenomenal book It. Many critics were also wondering whether it will beat the 1990 miniseries, staring Tim Curry as Pennywise aka the scary as fuck clown/shapeshifting child murderer.

The trailer for this year's movie didn't show much of the terrifying monster, but the quick snippets were enough to scare some people.

Well, the first people to get a sneak peek of the film have revealed their feelings, and they're overwhelmingly positive. But fans are not only describing the movie as incredibly scary, they are also giving it praise for its humour.

Bill Skarsgård is also being applauded for his take on Pennywise. During production, Bill's costume was so terrifying that it genuinely freaked out the kids on set. He told Movie Pilot: "At one point, they set up this entire scene, and these kids come in, and none of them have seen me yet. Their parents have brought them in, these little extras, right? And then I come out as Pennywise, and these kids-young, normal kids-I saw the reaction that they had.

"Some of them were really intrigued, but some couldn't look at me, and some were shaking. This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, 'Action!' And when they say 'action,' I am completely in character.

"So, some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, 'Holy shit. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible.'"

While he might have traumatised a few kids, and made them coulrophobic (afraid of clowns), it appears to have paid off because critics say he's brought the character to life.

The film will first be released in Belgium and Germany on September 6, before it makes its way to the UK and US two days later.
