New Pennywise: The Story of IT Trailer Floats to the Surface
The upcoming documentary recently received an extended trailer and it looks like a fantastic effort all around.

Today we are taking a look at the upcoming documentary, Pennywise: The Story of IT, a project that has recently fallen under our radar a little bit when it received a new, extended trailer a couple of weeks back. All in all, this project is looking like something no fan of Stephen King’s It, or the author’s work in general, will be able to pass up.
The entire cast and crew of the original miniseries is front and center in this new documentary that will arrive sometime this year. Tales from behind the scenes and the troubles that plagued the series are told through nearly everyone who worked on it, and don’t worry, they don’t skimp on the spider hate. Does anyone like that damn spider?
What fans are probably most eager to see is in what capacity the legendary Tim Curry is involved in the documentary. If the trailer is anything to go by, he will be featured heavily as he seems to be recovering wonderfully since his 2012 stroke. This is sure to brighten up the day of anybody who is a fan of the renowned actor.
The 1990 It miniseries is both beloved and ridiculed in one of the most intriguing love-hate relationships in the horror circles. While it terrified kids upon its release, it is no secret that it doesn’t hold up too well today, but fans still find ways to appreciate, love, and keep it alive today. Personally, I’ll watch it anytime it is on, simply because Tim Curry transcends the role of Pennywise and is just captivating no matter what he does. This is a documentary I am eagerly awaiting and I hope to see it drop very soon.
Check out the new trailer above and let us know what you think. In the meantime, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest on Stephen King’s It as well as the upcoming sequel, It: Chapter Two.
