Stephen King’s IT – Dread Central Takes YOU Inside The House on Neibolt Street

Stephen King’s IT still remains one of the best horror novels ever written, and one of the greatest sins of the (severely dated) 1990 mini-series is the omission of the dreaded “House on Neibolt Street.” Home to Pennywise the Clown, this massive derelict house functions as the centerpiece of the book, where members of the Losers’ Club have multiple encounters with IT in what are easily the scariest set-pieces in the entire story.

Thankfully, the filmmakers behind the new version have fixed that mistake (this writer is both excited and terrified to see Javier Botet bring “The Leper” to life), and Warner Bros. has gone the extra mile of re-creating Neibolt House in Los Angeles as an immersive haunt on the corner of Hollywood and Vine. The attraction is a coulrophobe’s worst nightmare and gives us a nice taste of what to expect from the movie: Visitors are taken through rooms of moving dolls, into the Losers’ basement (watch out for the slide projector!), and finally, into the sewers of Derry – as Pennywise’s eerie laugh echoes down the hallways and corridors.

Reservations on the official site sold out incredibly fast (keep an eye out for extended dates), but thankfully Dread Central was on hand for the opening night and captured a lot of photos and video of Neibolt House Hollywood. Enjoy!

The house (located at Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028) will be open to the public daily August 14th through September 10th from 1pm-11pm. Admission is free. Those who are 18 and over are welcome (at their own risk) to step inside the two-story replica of “where IT lives.” Guests will be guided by “Georgie” through the 5,000-sq.ft. house and will venture room by room through immersive film-inspired scenes complete with authentic set props. “Losers’ Club” groups of 7 will journey through a 20-minute experience encountering pneumatic surprises, live actors, animatronic beings, and state-of-the-art lighting, audio, and video.

IT hits theaters on September 8th. Andrés Muschietti directs.

Synopsis:
When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
