Inspired mostly by this geocache, we watched Stephen King’s “It” this weekend. While the movie suffered from bad acting and a leaky plot, it was rewarding to finally see another movie that depicts clowns with razor-sharp accuracy and a true sense of realism.

With the exception of 1988’s “Killer Klowns from Outer Space“, I’m not aware of any movies before or since the 1990 debut of “It” where the producers have confronted the evil that is clowns so openly. It’s time to get informed, people.
