It is almost here, and it’s got exactly what you’ve been waiting for: a group of terrified children and one hell of a scary clown. The big switch between the original 1990 TV movie and this 2017 update is tone: Everything is literally darker, in the style that ominous films are these days, and the scare tactics seem much more heavy-handed.
