Sewer drains will never be that same!
Needless to say I did eventually read IT and that started me down the Stephen King/ Dean Kootz reading pathway to which I believe my fear of the dark, closed closets and rampant insomnia are attributed. I loved the book, and even though it has now been 20 years since I first saw the movie, I cannot watch it after dark.

A 1990 release I was prob 5 at that time. I got to see that movie when I was around 8-9 years old and it ruined my life!
Till this day I think clowns are creepy and horrible. Ronald McDonald is my biggest enemy and I never look at Krusty the clown the same. I never got a chance to read the book yet because of the sequence of events and the fact that I saw the movie before I was into reading novels.
I just want to know, has anyone been creeped out of clowns after that movie? and if you didn't see the movie or read the book, and clowns creep you out in general what was the reason for that?
I was 5 the first time I watched the movie but just last year I read the book and the book was terrific. I couldn't put it down. Clowns on the other hand creep me out because of the movie my fiancé's aunt is a clown and she terrifies me when she is dressed up.
I read the book as an adult and was completely engrossed by the fuller, more in-depth story depicted than that is in the movie (of course) and was probably more shaken up than when I was a kid. A Stephen King classic; such an example of how a book can make you look at completely innocuous things (drains, friendship, childhood) and see how many layers of reality and truth can lie in them, and slightly creepy things (clowns, dark woods) and make them horrifying. Bill's line where he yells "You killed my brother George you bastard!" reminds me of Inigo Montoya's classic line and makes me want to shake my fist in triumph.
I haven't seen the movie either and don't think I ever will.
