* AuthorPhobia : Stephen King wrote an essay wherein he described the "ten bears" of various common fears. Rats, the dark, squishy things, closed-in spaces, things from outer space, fear ''for'' someone else, and a few others were all on the list. He pulls out all the stops with the creation of It, since It is a shapeshifter that takes on the form of the victim's greatest fears.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/SethGreen is Young Richie. Also check out young Emily Perkins and Chelan Simmons. Both would have plenty more horror credits as they grew up.



* TearJerker: The ending.

* CompleteMonster: [[AntagonistTitle It]], a.k.a. [[MonsterClown Pennywise the Dancing Clown]], is without question one of the most horrifying characters ever written. A [[EldritchAbomination primordial being]] [[TimeAbyss as old as time]], It awakens from its hibernation every three decades and proceeds to murder and devour the children of the town of [[TownWithADarkSecret Derry]], often using the avatar of a jovial clown named Pennywise to lure children into its clutches. It prides itself on using its shapeshifting and hallucinogenic powers to torment its victims, preying on their phobias and acquired fears and likening the cultivation of their terror to "salting the meat." From 1740 to 1743, It was responsible for the disappearance of three hundred Derry Township settlers. In 1957, It killed Bill's six-year-old brother, George, and devoured Patrick Hockstetter alive while in the form of his [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes greatest fear, leeches]]. It also drove [[TheBully Henry Bowers]] to madness, then killed Bowers' friends after they succeeded in luring the Losers' Club into the sewers. After waking up in 1984, It kills a man named Adrian Mellon before resuming its violent killing spree of children. It proceeds to manipulate Henry Bowers into trying to kill the Losers; drives Bill's wife, Audra, catatonic by exposing her to its deadlights; and manages to kill Eddie before its final defeat.

** Pennywise himself becomes this or HilariousInHindsight depending on how you look at it: In 2016, a bunch of "Creepy Clowns" started showing up scare-pranking innocent pedestrians.
