If you are one of those who couldn’t wait for the first two releases to hit the theatres, then the third instalment will scare you even more.

IT Chapter 3 Plot
IT follows the story of an ancient shape-shifting monster that resurfaces every 27 years from a sewer and hunts children. Seven young friends from Derry must overcome their fears and fight the devil to protect the children of their town. Pennywise, a bloodthirsty clown, scares the children and then feeds on them. In the novel, Pennywise is described as an alien and identified as a male. But in the film, he was described as a demon who comes back every 27 years. He has some supernatural power that keeps him from being noticed by people, making people believe that he is not real but a fantasy.
