Part trailer, part extended clip, but 100% Stephen King (creepy nostalgia with geeky kids in small town America) this “sneak peek” at IT, based on the horrormeister’s 1986 classic, makes you realise quite how much of a debt Stranger Things owed to that book. Ironically, the film will probably be accused of ripping off Stranger Things by some of the less enlightened parts of the internet. Because why let the facts get in the way of a decent rant, eh? We reckon this adaptation is looking very promising, though.
