Dead Mouse Productions recently released an extended six-minute trailer for Pennywise: The Story of IT, a documentary about the 1990 TV movie adaptation of Stephen King‘s IT.
The doc features much of the cast and crew talking about the adaptation, many of whom you’ll see in the trailer. This includes Seth Green, who played young Richie Tozier, and even the great Tim Curry, who played Pennywise.

If the look of the new movie adaptation of Stephen King’s IT isn’t quite doing it for you and you’d prefer to stick with the 1990 TV miniseries adaptation starring Tim Curry as Pennywise the clown, a new documentary is on the way you’ll be interested in learning about.
The documentary is titled Pennywise: The Story of IT, and aims to dig into the story behind the TV miniseries’ creation. The makers of the doc have obtained over two hours of previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage for the project, and have already set up over 20 interview guests, including the great Tim Curry himself.

Going into FOX’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again, you know that it can never live up to the 1975 cult classic film, but it can do its originator justice. Unfortunately, this new 2-hour TV special doesn’t.
The original The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a horror-comedy musical, became a counter-culture sensation after midnight screenings generated the now-famous audience participations, cosplay, and in-theater act-alongs. The film itself was an homage to classic science fiction-monster movies, complete with camp, meshed with gender-bending and titillations that were still considered taboo at the time, all set to catchy rock and roll tunes. It was unique, it was exciting, and it resonated with people so strongly that the movie and soundtrack are still in play today, and theater productions continue to be staged around Halloween time each year.
We saw the first trailer a few months ago for The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the upcoming 2-hour TV movie from FOX that will reimagine the original 1975 cult classic film.
Now, FOX has released a new trailer that features audience participation in it — a big part of the experience of watching the original film in theaters during midnight showings — as well as a look at Tim Curry as the criminologist narrator. Fans know that Curry originally played Frank-N-Furter, the sweet transvestite, the role now taken by Orange Is The New Black’s Laverne Cox.
