Coulrophobia, an innate fear of clowns. Though the term is not recognized professionally, the fear is real. Clowns are meant to bring joy and happiness. However, there are clowns who become twisted by their own dark humor. Thus, they now find joy in terrorizing people and inciting coulrophobia. Looking at the trailer for the remake of Stephen King’s “IT” as well as full body shots of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown, Warner Bros looks to push that fear even deeper. Unlike the Tim Curry portrayal of the character who appeared more colorful, Bill Skarsgård’s take on Pennywise is something truly sinister. Visually, he looks ready to induce fear as he devours the children of Derry, Maine.
The film also stars Jaeden Lieberher as Bill Denbrough, with Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Nicholas Hamilton in supporting roles.
“IT” comes town September 8!!
