Documentary 'Pennywise: The Story of IT' is Complete and Headed to the Sitges and FrightFest Film Festivals

Within the Fall of 1990, 27 years(!) earlier than his arrival on the large display, Pennywise was unleashed on tv audiences with a mini-series adaptation of Stephen King’s IT, and the upcoming documentary Pennywise: The Story of IT will likely be diving deep into the sewers of Derry to inform the true tales behind the clown that terrified a technology.

The upcoming documentary has been within the works for a number of years now, and right this moment we’ve discovered that it’s lastly full and set to premiere at two upcoming movie festivals!

First up, Pennywise: The Story of IT will likely be World Premiering at The Sitges Worldwide Implausible Movie Competition of Catalonia on October 15, information first reported by Selection.

The documentary will then be making its technique to Arrow Video Fright Fest in the UK, set to premiere on Saturday, October 30, simply someday earlier than Halloween.

With over 50 interviews with solid & crew and over 700 never-before-seen images from the manufacturing, the doc from John Campopiano and Chris Griffiths goals to “inform a narrative heard by few and showcase a wealth of behind-the-scenes footage and images seen by even fewer.”

From exploring the historic and cultural phenomenon of coulrophobia (the concern of clowns) to Tim Curry’s magical portrayal of Pennywise the Clown to the affect Vancouver (aka “Hollywood North”) had on the 1990 made-for-TV miniseries, The Story of IT will dig deeper into the Pennywise phenomenon than something ever has earlier than.

Campopiano mentioned in a brand new assertion shared with Bloody Disgusting, “We dwell in an period the place variations of Stephen King’s work have by no means been extra prolific and culturally related. From the massively profitable 2017 and 2019 theatrical remakes of IT and PET SEMATARY, the extensively lauded sequel to THE SHINING, DOCTOR SLEEP, TV sequence CASTLE ROCK, and the upcoming theatrical remake of his 1979 TV miniseries, SALEMS LOT – this documentary is arriving at exactly the perfect second.”

Produced Gary Good added, “This movie mission has been a exceptional journey and I’m simply so happy that Tim Curry joined us and graciously hung out sharing his ideas and reminiscences of his iconic position on this beloved miniseries.”

Pennywise: The Story of IT was written & produced by Campopiano and Good.
