PLAY­ING THE CLOWN WHILE PREY­ING THE TOWN, US, 133 MIN

Very spooky new adap­ta­tion of the old Stephen King book. Pen­ny­wise (played by Bill Skars­gard) is a de­ranged clown who makes chil­dren dis­ap­pear in a flash. A very well-made, well-acted movie that can eas­ily claim a place as one of the year’s best. Not just for its un­set­tling col­lec­tion of eerie, shocks to the sys­tem but also for some ac­ces­si­bly il­lu­mi­nat­ing sto­ry­telling. It of­ten re­calls an en­tire sea­son of the Net­flix clas­sic Stranger Things ad­min­is­tered in one pow­er­ful two-hour hit.
