Just not my cup of tea. Veers too far from the original and the King book. Two stars out of five.

I had not read the book or seen the original movie. This was scary and creepy, but not very exciting. I'll read the book.

The original was the very first horror movie I ever saw when I was 8, and it scared the bejeesus out of me. So I was very excited to see an updated version of this. With the advances in special effects, and Stephen King talking about how much he liked this version, I was expecting something that would chill me to the bone and give me nightmares.
I only jumped once during the entire film, and that was only because my cat jumped out from out of nowhere. While I really did like the update to the story line (no spoilers, but they make a huge change from the source material that seemed like it would give them so much more to work with), it fell flat really fast. The things that creeped me out about the original and the novel, the very essence of the movie that leaves you triple checking your locks at night and sleeping with a nightlight on, were sadly missing. It seemed bland, as if they put all their creativity into that one update and that's it. Even John Lithgow, who played the part he was given perfectly, couldn't save this movie. They took the best bits of his character and left them somewhere on the editing room floor, apparently.
The only real good thing I can say about this movie is that Jete Laurence was fantastic. With very little source material for her to draw from, she gave a great performance. She was the only one with any real character development, and the drastic changes to her character throughout the film were great. If everything hadn't felt so rushed, I'm sure she could've done even more with her part and really added some depth to the film.

Why do a remake of a mediocre movie? Really poor casting and acting. Can not really get involved with the characters. How can you make a horror movie and not make it scary?

Seems to stay faithful to King's famed novel with same family of four and other significant characters in a town called Ludlow but a somewhat different ending. Pretty good remake of the first 1989 film adaptation. Too unnerving psychological horror and graphic violence for early teens.

Patron review on this movie - "Don't muck about with black magic. If you don't understand it, leave it alone, if it's dead - it should stay dead!"

Awful Awful movie. Chilled me to the bone about the children. I likeD the original movie better, this remake should never had happened. I would not recommend this movie to anyone nor should it ever get a movie award. TERRIBLE !!

SOMETIMES, DEAD IS BETTER... THIS IS ONE OF THOSE TIMES
I watched this to see where they'd run in the parts from
the original, because none of this film connected...
Perhaps the greatest of the sci-fi films presents in it's
efforts, workmanline production.. think everyone knew it
was exercise in futility (and the click bait about the cat
dying before release; maybe a timed coincidence from the
producers.. PETA has been made aware)
Take the original, at least it had the decency to have
the actual Ramones do the title track, not some late
comer with a cover doing horrible things.
