I know what you mean, and I hope the IT movie isn't a response to fads or memes, but it was a great, King version of A Nightmare on Elm Street on the page that I spent a teenage summer lost in. Apart from Tim Curry, the 1990 miniseries was a dud. Reviewers I trust say the new one is a very decent adaptation (of half of it), though they have updated it so the kids stuff takes place in the late 80s, with references to New Kids on the Block and Michael Jackson. Some would say Jacko could make a pretty scary Pennywise himself.
