    This article contains potentially sensitive content that may be discomforting or upsetting to certain users. Reader discretion is advised!

    Bill Skarsgård (2017-2019)
    Status: Unknown
    Media of origin: It

    It (sometimes capitalized as IT), also more commonly known by its favorite form as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, is the titular main antagonist of Stephen King's 1986 coming-of-age horror novel It as well as its 1990 TV miniseries adaptation and the remastered 2017-2019 film duology of the same name.

    Why IT Will Float Too

    1. It is one of Stephen King’s most diabolical and memorable antagonists.
    2. Its expressions and characteristics are ungodly and unpredictable, showing how terrifying It can be.
    3. It takes many forms of people’s worst fears, mainly Its most memorable form, Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
    4. Tim Curry and Bill Skarsgård both do fantastic jobs at portraying the live-action version of Pennywise.
    5. It steals the show most of the time with Its goofy yet frightening behavior as Pennywise, such as the Pennywise dancing moment.
    6. It has many memorable quotes, such as the unforgettable “You'll all float down here.” line.
    7. Its gender, whereabouts, and origin are hidden with the a deadly ball of lights known as the Deadlights, showing It truly remains a mystery, making It even more of a terrifying figure.

    Bad Qualities

    1. In the 2017 film, it is implied that It wasn't malevolent by nature, but rather just looking for Its favorite foods, which contradicts the lore of Stephen King's novel and the fact that It is confirmed to be pure evil by Bill Skårsgard himself.
    2. While Its 1990 design is pretty terrifying, it makes It look a lot more like a children's clown at a birthday party, in comparison to Its 2017 counterpart. Speaking of which, the 2017 design looks too scary to trick the kids (in the film) as in the original for the clownish behavior.
