This film share a few similarities with another supernatural horror film hit, Stephen King's It (2017). Both movies deal with a shapeshifting demonic entity that relentlessly terrorize a group of youths, the uncomfortable sexual undertones and implications in the narratives, the childlike qualities reflected from the main characters, the sense of dread and uncertainty in the atmosphere due to a dark force, and the groups fighting back against the supernatural threat. And, of course, both films have the word "it" in their titles. See more »

Finally a real horror in a long time! No more bloody, slasher crap.
This is how the really scary movies were made. Suspense and fear are
created by great cinematography and music.

horror genre: we are scared of the unknown and not violence for the
sake of it.
All the young actors are promising, they really pulled it off. Kudos to
the director who also wrote the script, I am looking forward to his
Go see it, you won't regret it!
