The fall is a great time for horror movies. With Halloween season causing audiences more willing to be scared, there’s usually a ton of horror flicks premiering in the month of October. This year is certainly no exception, which may just result in movies like Jigsaw and Happy Death Day to cannibalize itself in regards to box office performance. Perhaps that’s why the new IT movie will arrive in just a few weeks. Reviews are just around the corner, although critics have seen early screeners for It, and have recently shared their thoughts via social media, it looks like IT is actually a quality horror movie that will delight the property’s generations of fans.
#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

LOVED #ItMovie. Captured the spirit of the book & still created something new. Perfect combo of dark & fun. & The Losers Club was PERFECT! 👌 pic.twitter.com/ipkKlAORyt

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

Felt a Poltergeist meets the Monster Squad vibe – a great example of a film where its R rating elevates it in all the best ways
