The early 90s TV film of Stephen King’s IT that traumatised an entire generation is about to get its own feature-length documentary.

If you sat in the cinema through 2017’s It and its 2019 sequel and found yourself laughing aloud at how the murderous Pennywise the Clown wasn’t as scary as you remember, chances are you came of age in the early 1990s. If you survived the 1990 TV film adaptation of the Stephen King novel, It, you understand just how scary a clown really can be, especially when played so unforgettably by the wonderful Tim Curry.

For all of its flaws, the 1990 version of It has lots of fans who will be excited to hear that a feature-length documentary is soon to release that will explore the making of the project. What’s more, you can check out the trailer for it below.

The film is set to cover the impact that the TV film had upon American culture, the experience of making it as well as promising exclusive footage of Curry getting into role as Pennywise. The actor also numbers among the interviewees in the film. Pennywise: The Story of IT will be released on streaming on July 26.
