Kids talking dirty? It must be a Stephen King movie.
I’ve always been most impressed by Stephen King’s ability to write characters. Sure, these characters are usually stuck in some pretty horrific situations, but it was his mastery of writing characters that always brought me back to his books. And when writing characters, he seemed to be best at writing kids. In the new trailer for the upcoming theatrical version of It, we get to meet some of those characters all over again.
This trailer is classic Stephen King. A down home group of kids, bonding as they walk. If feels a lot like Stand By Me doesn’t it? No, it just feels like a Stephen King story.
