Must-See: Watch Bill Skarsgard Turn Into Pennywise In All-New IT Featurette


Holy sh*t.

Bill Skarsgard is one freaky sumbitch. I know the guy is, like, 5 years younger than me, but still, I’m going have nightmares now. The dude is even creepier without the clown make-up.

All jokes aside, Skarsgard turned in a terrifying performance for the ages with his turn as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in Andres Muschietti’s recent take on Stephen King’s IT.

If you’re like most people in the world and want to know a bit more about how Skarsgard prepared for the role – and see him transform himself in Pennywise right before your eyes, then this is the featurette for you. I can totally see watching this more than the movie. At least to creep out my siblings/girlfriends.

You can check out the new featurette called “Pennywise Lives” below, along with the specs on the film’s Blu-ray release. Then make sure to let us know what you thought of the film below!
