The Return of Pennywise, the Dancing Clown

I know, we all love Tim Curry’s portrayal of the iconic Pennywise. No one will ever be able to replace him or take away from his performance.

In the case of Bill Skarsgård, he brings his own flair and style to the quintessential role. I can say with full sincerity that Skarsgård is the new face of terror as Pennywise. He still has some of the sentimental quirks that Stephen King created with the character, but at its core, he’s a horrific beast that will haunt your dreams for days on end.
