Plenty of people developed a deep seated and lifelong fear of clowns after their first viewing of IT, in the same way most people born between 1960 and 1970 won’t go in the ocean anymore. And apparently coulrophobia is one of those cultural touchstones, because an IT remake is on its way to theaters this September. We got our first real look at footage from the movie in the form of the teaser trailer and we have to say, yup, stay the fuck away from us, every clown ever. The few glimpses we got of Pennywise are terrifying and the main kids look to have the acting chops necessary to carry this movie. If nothing else, this may signify a return to the suspense genre, with theaters full of frightened couples holding hands so hard their bones fuse.
