What made pennywise scary was how unthreatening he appeared when first introduced. Colourful and able to engage with the children. Not this.— Caspar Wijngaard (@Casparnova) August 16, 2016
This version of Pennywise doesn't have a creepy vibe. Dude just looks like a weird player from a local Shakespeare production— Mikey O'Leary (@MichaelROLeary) August 16, 2016
I'm terrified of clowns but that new Pennywise is a joke. Big budget horror continues not understanding subtle is scary.— William Philpot (@TosshiTX) August 16, 2016
