PLAY­ING THE CLOWN WHILE PREY­ING THE TOWN, US, 133 MIN This spooky new adap­ta­tion of the old Stephen King book is sure to force a global spike in out­breaks of coul­ro­pho­bia. That’s the fear of clowns, in case you didn’t know. The big-shoed, red-nosed pro­tag­o­nist, Pen­ny­wise (played by Bill Skars­gard) is a Freddy Krueger of the fair­grounds. While scary enough to have you avoid­ing cir­cuses, street pa­rades and birth­day par­ties forever­more, It is also a very well-made, well-acted movie that can eas­ily claim a place as one of the year’s best.
