** The scar Bower's left never faded. The scars from the werewolf, which were in the same vicinity, did fade and reappeared when Ben was back in Derry. Ben noted he had showed the Bower scars to his bartender only a few days before and the werewolf scars were not present then.

Then it was [[Film/It1990 adapted into a movie, movie]], and untold numbers of children suddenly were scared of clowns. [[MonsterClown Good reason, too.]]







'''The Movie Adaptation'''
* The scene where the sink starts spewing blood is horrifying and disgusting, and made even worse by the fact that [[AbusiveParents Beverly's dad]] doesn't even see the blood.
** Worse than that, he puts his hands in it, then rubs it on her face and she can't wipe it away!
* The shower scene in which Pennywise is shown calling out to Eddie from below one of the shower drains, lifts open the drain, sticks his hands out and shoves at the drain opening with his hands literally like it was clay to make it big enough so he can stick half of his body out and tell a horrified Eddie "Here I am, wheezy! Hey, you're gonna like it down here. Won't do any good to run, girly boy! See you in your dreams! Oh, come back anytime! Bring your friends!" No doubt it left kids with a [[ParanoiaFuel paranoia fueled]] fear towards shower drains or probably drains of any kind.
** Pennywise then abruptly lowers his head and lifts it, letting out an loud unearthly roar before chuckling and looking directly at the camera while some creepy music plays.
* "Kill? <chuckle> ME? Oh, you are priceless, ''brat''. [[AC:I... am ''eternal'', child. I am the Eater of '''Worlds''' - and ''of children''. And YOU... are '''''NEXT!'''''"]]
* Akin to the scene where blood comes out of the sink is the scene wherein Bill is looking at an old photo album of his dead brother George, and suddenly Georgie's picture winks at him. He throws it across the room and the album starts moving on its own, turning back to that same picture, which then starts to bleed heavily. Then when his parents come in and can't see the blood.
* This line from Pennywise: "I'll kill you all! *laughs* I'll drive you crazy... and then I'LL KILL YOU ALL! I'm every nightmare you've ever had, I am your WORST DREAM COME TRUE! I'm everything you EVER were afraid of!"
** The buildup to it: the kids find an old photograph with a familiar-looking figure in the background. And then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bSQavJfbqM it starts moving...]]
* Stan's suicide.
* Creator/TimCurry, in his clown make-up as Pennywise. Even when he's not doing anything particularly frightening in the movie, he's still creepy as all hell; the other actors/crew-members actually ''avoided'' Curry on the set.
* The scene where [[spoiler:Ben]] has just confessed his love for Beverly and they kiss and embrace, only for him to look in the mirror and see that the person he is holding... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2xExmJSLPQ is wearing a clown suit]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9n6cbd3D4Y Beverly's encounter with Mrs. Kersh]].
* Eddie's encounter with Mr. Keene, and the idea that Keene's memory of Eddie was [[spoiler: all fabricated by the Clown]].
* Audra's encounter with a gas station attendant just outside of Derry. When he refers to the Barrens as "where they used to play when they were kids", you KNOW that he's actually Pennywise in disguise.
* The idea that the adults can't see the blood and therefore cannot ''remove'' the blood until they wash the body part bloodied, means they could go up to a day without washing it off if it's on their faces, and hours if its on their hands...there could be phantom alien paint all over Bill Denborough's and Bev Marsh's houses.
* Most people criticize the [[spoiler:GiantSpider]] at the end for looking cheesy and fake, but the tunnel outside It's lair, the ''door surrounded by bones'', and especially the webbed-up bodies in the ceiling (including [[spoiler:Bill's wife]]) are pretty damn creepy.
** More ParanoiaFuel combined with a bit of WhatHappenedToTheMouse , but...In the book [[spoiler: Tom Rogan drops dead when he sees IT]]. In the movie adaptation, Bev simply leaves him. Although he's not portrayed as quite the asshole he is in the book, what if he is and he's still out there, and he'll be coming after her?

* The DeusSexMachina. It's just so disturbing and horrible (despite being well-written, of course) that any inkling of FetishFuel is drained away into the bowels of Pennywise's sewer, never to be seen again. As the children fleeing the sewers, from defeating IT the first time, stop for a moment to make an entire connection via their reproductive organs.

** In the mini-series version, he doesn't follow her, which means he's still alive and ''out there somewhere''.

--> ''Come in and see'' that something seemed to whisper in my head. ''Never mind all the rest of it, Jake-come in and see. Come in and visit. Time doesn't matter in here; in here, time floats away. You know you want to, you're curious. Maybe it's even another rabbit-hole. Another portal''.

**Don't forget his unseen cameo in 11/22/63. Even though he doesn't actually see IT, Jake Epping can perceive something is really, ''really'' wrong with Derry.
--> (...) there was something inside that fallen chimney at the Kitchener Ironworks. I don't know what and I don't ''want'' to know, but at the mouth of the thing I saw a heap of gnawed bones and a tiny chewed collar with a bell on it (...) And from inside the pipe-deep in that oversized bore- something moved and shuffled.

--> Maybe it was, but I don't think so. I think it was ''Derry'' in there-everything that was wrong with it, everything that was askew, hiding in that pipe. Hibernating. Letting people believe the bad times were over, waiting for them to relax and forget there had ever been bad times at all.

** Said boy's fate, in chapter 17. He was a sociopath with only one fear: leeches. It takes the form of leeches combined with mosquitoes and wasps. The description of the boy being drained of his blood as well as ''[[EyeScream the fact that one of the leeches sucks his eyeball dry]]'' is pretty horrifying as well. Even after ripping off and squashing a bloated leech feeding off his arm, the severed head was still embedded and continued to suck out the blood even as it was spilling out the other side like a hose. He was still alive while Pennywise was dragging his bloodied body into the sewer. He woke while he was feeding on him.
