If you’re alive and breathing, you’ve probably heard of the movie It. The film, based on the Stephen King horror novel of the same name, follows the experiences of seven children being terrorized by a clown. It seemed like as soon as trailers were released for It, people couldn’t wait to see if the movie matched the hype created by the previews. Skyview Cineplex in Afton played the movie the week it opened and many curious, brave students went to watch it.
