IT (1990) is a TV movie based on Stephen King's epic horror novel. The cast includes Richard Thomas, John Ritter, Seth Green, Jonathan Brandis, Annette O'Toole and Tim Curry.
The novel by King was a big epic read with plenty of characterization. This movie doesn't really capture that detail despite it's 3 hour run time. In fairness the epic storyline of the novel make it practically unfilmable anyway.
The cast are very good especially the kids. A young Seth Green is almost unrecognisable and Jonathan Brandis really steals the show with a standout performance.
Director Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III) makes the best use of his low-budget effects and creates a couple of scary moments but unfortunately the movie gets a little boring because of its long runtime.
This DVD is fairly decent and has some nice extras including a director and cast commentary but be warned the DVD is double sided and stops half way through requiring you to get up and switch the disc over.
