You can’t talk of horror without speaking about the father of them all ─ Stephen King. His made-into-movie-from-novel It recently saw a remake from the original 1990 miniseries of the same title onto the big screen. It is based on the book of the same name which was released in 1986.
Basically, it’s a story about Pennywise the Dancing Clown, (yeah, every child’s dream of a fun and funny guy) who emerges from the sewers every 27 years to murder them. Seven young children in Derry, Maine faced their worst nightmare trying to defeat the clown. When they couldn’t do it as kids, they made a pact to come back 27 years later to finish the job.
This year, It was released as a duology, meaning that the film we saw in September 2017 is the first part, that’s why it was called It: Chapter One. The second part will be released in 2019.
It 2017 did very well. According to Wikipedia, It https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_(2017_film) was the highest-grossing horror film of 2017, the second highest-grossing R-rated film of 2017 (after Logan), and the 10th highest-grossing film overall of 2017. Critics called it one of the best Stephen King adaptations ever.

But from a strictly sartorial viewpoint, dressing up as Pennywise will sure be hit this Halloween.
