One of the scariest movies because: Well... clowns. The latest adaptation of Stephen King's frightful page-turner that debued in September quickly surpassed The Exorcist for highest-grossing R-rated scary movie ever.

What the critics say: Even before movie reviews dropped, critic Halleigh Fatouch of Collider tweeted "It's scary as sh--." Skarsgard nails Pennywise, she added. “Beyond killer clowns, It also delves into the grief & anger kids feel when they realize those who should love & protect them do the opposite. These are themes in King’s stories that filmmakers often ignore. But the best adaptations figure out they’re the most vital part.”—Anthony Breznican, EW. This one's definitely not for children, folks.
