‘It’ Early Fan Reactions: ‘Scary as S—,’ ‘Everything I Hoped For’

There are some lucky people who got to see the new “It” film adaptation early, and their reactions are exactly what we had hoped for.
“‘IT’ is creepy, bloody, super funny, adorably romantic and hands down among my favorite movies of the year,” Fandango’s Erik Davis tweeted.
“#ITMovie is everything I hoped for & more,” Collider’s Perri Nemiroff added. “Has heart, laughs & TONS of incredible scares. Fell in love w/ The Losers. Didn’t want it to end.”

#ITMovie is a very handsome, polished execution of a story you know inside out. The big surprise is Finn Wolfhard. Really earns his spot.

Thrilled I can now say that IT is spectacular. Totally terrifying, but also amazing fun (the Losers are PERFECT). Top 10 candidate for me. pic.twitter.com/XjQHyNmSEq

Happy to say #IT is an effectively scary & faithful adaptation of (half) @StephenKing's novel. Walked out very satisfied. @ITMovieOfficial

I have some issues w/ Pennywise, but most are due to the film using CGI when not necessary. Otherwise, Skarsgard is a creepy sonofagun. #IT

Bill Skarsgard is putting in a performance that is going to turn him into the Freddy Krueger of a new generation. #ITMovie @ITMovieOfficial

#ITMovie: a carnival funhouse of a film; loud, scary, funny. And best of all: it has heart. #It
