When it was first announced that there was going to be a new big screen adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel IT, there seemed to be a split among the fans, with some of them very excited to see what a new version of this classic tale would bring, while others felt that there was no need to make another IT project, claiming that it was all just one big money-making scam.
However, the recent reviews for IT have been hugely positive and it seems that they have given us all a horror movie that we can all get excited about. Actor Dwayne Johnson was one of the lucky few to get an early viewing of IT and, now that the reviews are being shared around the world, Dwayne has taken to his official social media accounts to heap huge praise on the new film.
Johnson wrote, "'I saw this movie two months ago and it instantly became one of my all time favorites. Easily TOP 10 all time. Not only does it redefine the horror genre, but it's so layered, smart and brilliantly scary. Congrats to the awesome young cast aka The Losers Club for killing their performances. To Bill Skarsgard for delivering an iconic performance as Pennywise. And to the entire crew and my good buds at Warner Bros/New Line."
He continued, "And most of all congrats to director, Andy Muschietti for making such a defining film. You knocked it outta the f**king park! Great talking with you man and we're gonna have some fun working together down the road. As a huge fan of the horror genre, this one's special."
We have not yet had the chance to see IT but, after all of the huge praise it has been receiving, we cannot wait to give it a watch as soon as possible.
