“You’ll float too.”
Jesus H. Christ! I don’t think I will ever look at a red balloon the same way again!
That’s right folks, today’s the big day! IT is now playing in theaters near you (God help you), and to celebrate I thought I would do a little something different this week. I will show you a few of the abso-frikin-lutely terrifying posters for what is being heralded as “The greatest movie ever” by so many people. Even achieving critical acclaim from hard-nosed movie critics. It has been called “Stand by Me with a demonic clown” and that is enough reason for me to see it, because I’ve always considered that movie pretty epic.
Confession time, I’m a little afraid. Me! Horror and Sci-fi lover, loyal Stephen King fan, and self-proclaimed zombie aficionado. But, I remember the 90’s mini-series (a little) and the book (vividly), so I know that this is going scare the popcorn out of me. Also, I really don’t like clowns. Not very original of me I know, but just the same, they freak me out.
How in the love of movie magic did they turn this angelic creature into the most terrifying monster ever? Seriously though, this transformation is amazing!
But before I give you nightmares for the rest of the weekend, let me tell you a little about my week.
Blog-wise, its been great! I’ve been getting a ton of interesting submissions and have been reading some really great stuff. One of which, is this AMAZING book called “Home to Roost” (Goodreads). A genre-bending tale about the inner-workings of farm life as told by a chicken. That’s right you read correctly, a chicken. At first I thought it was going to be an homage to Animal Farm, and some parts did remind me of it, but it’s actually a horror/ survival story/ paranormal-ish tale that is extremely well-written and immensely enjoyable.
Hmm, what else? Ugh I started an elimination diet because I think I am allergic to dairy. The change in diet has been okay, but 4 or 5 days of extremely healthy food, and my body thinks it’s being poisoned. Seriously, why is clean eating so painful lol?
Hopefully, I will live to see my wedding. Speaking of, just found out we may have to push it up a month or 2 for logistical reasons, which is equally exciting, and stress-inducing. 8 months to plan a destination wedding? I got this!
Anyway, let’s get to the reason you’re reading this post, shall we?
IT (Theatrical Release: TODAY)
Don’t fall for it kid!
I swear, my child will never see a clown!
And just for fun… The original movie’s poster.
Okay, fewer choices this week and they all inspire great fear… but I think I’m going to have to go with poster “A”
The Winner: “A”
I wish you all a wonderful weekend and I can’t wait to see who’s brave enough to see IT this weekend! Remember, stay away from red balloons. Far away.
