Pennywise (IT) (1/6)

Before the hauntingly brilliant portrayal by Bill Skarsgard, Tim Curry was the sole face of Stephen’s King terrifying ‘Pennywise, the Dancing Clown’. With his obviously striking make up, wild hair and eerily colourful outfit, ‘IT’ can take any form that it wishes, feasting on the fears and nightmares from the children of Derry every 27 years or so. The wisecracking and sadistic nature of IT really marks it out as a genuinely powerful predator that is so used to having the odds stacked in its favour, which makes the struggle of the ‘Losers Club’ against all the more gripping.
