Five Terrifying Stephen King Movies To Keep You Shaking Until ‘It’ Is Released

For a certain generation of Stephen King fans, who read his stories at a tender age, there’s few things scarier than Pennywise the Clown. If you need to identify one of these fans, all you need to do is sneak up behind them and whisper in a raspy voice, “They all float down here.” If the person you’re whispering to jumps and screams, congratulations, you’ve found a Stephen King fan.

ABC adapted the King book featuring Pennywise, It, in 1990. Vulture reported last week that director Cary Fukunaga, currently at the helm of True Detective, has been confirmed to direct a big screen adaptation, which should begin filming next summer. Producer Dan Lin told Vulture:

“The idea is to start official prep in March for a summer shoot. Cary likes to develop things for a while, and we’ve been with this for about three or four years, so we’re super excited that he stayed with it.”

Lin also reports that Stephen King has given his blessing on the project.
