    Stephen King's It (Unrated, 1990)

    John Ritter, Richard Thomas, Annette O'Toole, Tim Curry, Harry Anderson
    Originally titled Stephen King's It, this two-part TV movie first aired on November 18 and 20, 1990.... read more The story starts in Maine, where a small child is lured into the hands of what audiences everywhere can be assured is one mean clown. The 30-year struggle against an evil supernatural force that masquerades as a circus clown named Pennywise (Tim Curry) begins in 1960 and spans until 1990. Featured are a group of six young men and one young woman who call themselves "the lucky seven" and are the unfortunate targets of Pennywise from pre-adolescence into their mid-forties.

When Pennywise returns 30 years later, the seven are forced to remember their terrifying past and faced with the prospect of destroying him once and for all. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
