Ygraine Hackett-Cantabrana The Geek Show (UK) Essential viewing not only for fans of Stephen King, but also for genre film fans and aspiring filmmakers as the documentary offers an insight into the process undertaken to transform the story from page to screen Jul 9, 2024 Full Review Paul Klein FILMHOUNDS Magazine The ace in the hole though is Tim Curry, who for years has remains surprisingly reticent to discuss this of all his work. Here he recounts how he fought for a minimal amount of make-up to allow his performance to take over. Rated: 4/5 Jul 5, 2024 Full Review Jason Delgado Film Threat An essential companion piece for fans. Rated: 7/10 Oct 25, 2022 Full Review Benjamin Gummery Indie Mac User ...a must-watch for fans of the mini series but also has a wider appeal for those interested in the ‘behind-the-scenes’ and process of TV & Film. Rated: 5/5 Oct 23, 2022 Full Review Niall Browne Movies in Focus If you have an interest in any incarnation of Stephen King’s It, then I highly recommend Pennywise: The Story Of It. It’s a great look at the making of the iconic 1990 TV miniseries. Rated: 4/5 Oct 2, 2022 Full Review Robert Martin Starburst ... There’s nothing exciting or unusual about the telling of the story - it’s a very standard documentary indeed. It’s the subject matter only which keeps the interest and that’ in itself is fascinating. Rated: 4/5 Sep 29, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
