I was 13 when I read Stephen King’s IT for the first time. I picked up a mass market copy from the supermarket—its cover emblazoned with an image from the 1990 TV miniseries—and tore through it while on a cruise with my family.
I have since read the book so damn many times I’ve lost count. The binding is held together with packing tape, and pages 553 – 580 have fallen out of the book entirely. They’re now folded in half and tucked into the front of the book, so I can refer to them the next time I inevitably read it. Or rather… IT.
I’ve also watched the miniseries a number of times. I have a copy on VHS, from when my dad taped it. It’s one of the primary reasons we still own a DVD/VCR combo.
But now there is this movie I have been anticipating since 2009, and while remakes usually make me nervous, WELCOME TO MY FUTURE NIGHTMARES:
What are you afraid of? #ITMovie

I am peeing myself with anticipation.
The movie—directed by Andrés Muschietti and written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga and Gary Daubermanis—is scheduled to be released in September.
