I remember watching this when it first aired and boy was it scary. Tim Curry was the stuff of nightmares and we were left side stepping sewer grates well into adulthood.
Now, 27 years later, things have changed. Curry still dominates the screen but the two-episode series feels rushed and a little unfullfilling. Still watchable after all these years, just not the scare fest it was when I was younger. Maybe my tastes have changed or maybe my nostalgia glasses have finally fallen off, but I much prefer my memories of IT over the actual thing.
