* TimCurry, in all that clown make-up as Pennywise. Even when he's not doing anything particularly frightening in the movie, he's still creepy as all hell. To give a good idea as to how creepy Pennywise is, the other actors/crew-members actually '''avoided''' TimCurry while he in make-up and on set.

** Even worse? Beverly's ''mother'' picked up on his lust for their daughter. She asks Beverly if he's ever been inappropriate with her, but she's too young to understand what she means. Talk about AdultFear, imagine having a kid and having to decide whether to bring up the issue of them being molested or not, knowing that if you're vague, the kid may say "no" because they don't understand the question, but if you're clear and specific about it, you're going to torpedo your kid's trust in their other parent once they realize there's a reason you asked in the first place.

** 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 CompleteMonster he is in the book, what if he is and he's still out there, and he'll be coming after her?

** 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 basically 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.

* Pretty much all of these examples and others become even more frightening upon listening to Steven Weber's reading of the novel. His matter-of-fact narration of horrific scenes leaves the listener no quarter, and the different voices he affects for Pennywise's different manifestations are particularly chilling.

* The entirety of Henry Bowers' life. Between his insane father showing him approval only when committing horrible, violently abusive acts against others, and his proximity in age to It's most potent adversaries, he was just about doomed from birth.

** Replacing the [[TrueCompanions bonds of friendship]] with the [[PowerOfLove bonds of love]] was really more of a [[HeartwarmingMoment heart warming moment]] than NightmareFuel for this troper (even if they were still kids at the time). What was NightmareFuel was the thought that because of the way sex is viewed in this culture, Beverly couldn't even bring her mind to acknowledge the act instead hiding beneath the [[PsychicStatic grackles]]. Being unable to even think of the love they had for each other is terrifying.

Ah, ''{{It}}''. Regarded as one of Stephen King's scariest ([[{{Doorstopper}} and longest]]) novels, it ''sure'' does have NightmareFuel. [[BringMyBrownPants Now, where are my brown pants?]]

* 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.
