When I returned from the cinema after watching IT for the first time, I was truly quaking. The thought of a chilling and deadly clown who can bring your deepest and darkest fears to life is far more than unsettling, and I have no desire to enter the sewers - not that I ever really did in the first place!
Apparently, though, the film could have been even worse for viewers...but a scene was deleted for being far too disturbing for the already terrifying story.
If you haven't gone out to your local theatre to see IT yet - I definitely recommend that you do. Although it was frightening, I left the cinema feeling pretty glad I had gone.
