    Well, the intention is to scare them, by using their worst fears against them. i don't think Pennywise was ever supposed to be "inviting".

    Pennywise in the novel is supposed to be inviting, like a Bozo the Clown type. Tim Curry's portrayal was very close to the character in the novel. In this new movie, the clown was too evil looking right off the bat. I liked the portrayal, but in reality no kid would go near that thing.

    I really, REALLY enjoyed this movie. It wasn't "scary" like stupid jump scares and crap, it was a mental terror game that if you just let yourself be swept up it's a good ride. The cast handle the rolls well, while Tim Curry will always be "Pennywise" the new Pennywise will compete with him for fan fave. I really liked how tightly the narrative of the movie was, flowing from salient point to salient point instead of wasting time in fluff. While I did hear few people complain it "went too fast, I didn't understand it" I chalk that up to stupid people go to movies too and I ignore them.

    There are a few awkward scenes, Beverly's dad... if you know what I'm talking about, you want to donkey kick him into a wall. And the scene in her bathroom is nothing short of spectacular and creepy and I loved it.

    All in all, I give it 4 out of 5 stars and am looking forward to the next installment.
    When I watched the Tim Curry version of this movie, I was never scared of the clown because whenever he popped up all I saw was his Rocky Horror Picture Show character.

    Do you think it's appropriate for a 9 year old?

    My daughter really, really wants to watch it. She does pretty good with horror movies, I get more scared than her but I have heard it's not really appropriate for children but want to hear from others as well.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I think it would be most inappropriate. But I'm a fuddy duddy about such, I didn't let my kids watch Hard R movies till they were 16.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    That's what was holding me back is the R rating, I don't typically let her watch those. The last one we did was Logan and I thought it ended up being a little too violent for her, even though she didn't seem fazed by it.

    There aren't "jump scares" so much as the dread. Lot's of adult issues. Scenes that are pretty scary. I'd advise waiting for it on video and watching yourself first to see if she could handle. If she can, go out to dinner and leave her home alone. Make sure to come back early dressed as a clown with a red balloon...

    The parents in this video did something much worse after their kids watch Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
