Curry played the clown in a two-part miniseries in 1990 for ABC in the U.S., and his horrifying make-up has always been admired in horror circles.

Fans of the seminal Stephen King novel It are eagerly anticipating the release of the movie adaptation this September, with the film itself gaining some significant buzz outside the usual circles.

"To be honest, I wasn't a big fan of the miniseries", he told SFX Magazine.

It, the first of two films, is directed by Andres Muschietti (Mama) and follows seven children who are terrorized by a being that exploits the fears of its victims, most often taking the form of Pennywise the clown in order to lure young children into the sewer. "But also you have to say that it impacted that generation because they saw it with very young eyes as a TV movie or on VHS", which makes us wonder how scary he plans to create his version considering we won't be watching it on VHS.

"A lot of people don't remember the whole thing, but they are terrified of the iconic scenes of the clown behind the sheets in the beginning and the storm drain". "When he saw it, we started exchanging emails". He was very moved.
