Now a major new motion picture

The terror, which would not end for another twenty-eight years - if it ever did end – began, so far as I know or can tell, with a boat made from a sheet of newspaper floating down a gutter swollen with rain.

'They float...and when you're down here with me, you'll float, too.'

To the children, the town was their whole world. To the adults, knowing better, Derry Maine was just their home town: familiar, well-ordered for the most part. A good place to live.

It is the children who see - and feel - what makes the small town of Derry so horribly different. In the storm drains, in the sewers, IT lurks, taking on the shape of every nightmare, each one's deepest dread. Sometimes IT reaches up, seizing, tearing, killing ...

Time passes and the children grow up, move away and forget. Until they are called back, once more to confront IT as IT stirs and coils in the sullen depths of their memories, reaching up again to make their past nightmares a terrible present reality.

Now a Major Motion Picture, directed by Andres Muschietti and starring Bill Skarsgard as the story's central villain, Pennywise, and an ensemble of young actors including Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things).

Known to many as the father of modern horror writing, Stephen King is the voice of the underbelly of small-town America for a generation of readers. Making his name as the author of cult classics (with an equally strong legacy of film adaptations) including  CarrieThe ShiningThe Green MileITThe StandPet CemeteryUnder the Dome and The Tommyknockers as well as the bestselling Dark Tower series.
