Stephen King's It (1990)

  • Salem Visitor Center 2 New Liberty Street Salem, MA, 01970 United States (map)

Few images are as indelible as Tim Curry’s portrayal of Pennywise the Clown in the TV mini-series It. When a group of outcast kids known as the Loser’s Club in Derry, Maine has to destroy the malevolent clown as children, they return 27 years later to finish him off.  In this premise you’ve got the makings of some of Stephen King’s most famous themes and characters. With director Tommy Lee Wallace and screenwriter Lawrence D. Cohen condensing King’s mammoth 1000+ page tomb into a rather nimble three hours (leaving out some of the less savoury sewer-play), the It mini-series reached unsuspecting homes all over the world cementing new nightmares for generations of viewers. 

Directed by Tommy Lee Wallace
