Still pissed off about how creepy pennywise looks in the It remake. He's supposed to be a clown to lure in kids not scare them away the moment they see him. honestly this whole movie lost my interest and most peoples interest when cary fukunaga left.

Technically, we’ve had a total of two pictures of Pennywise so far, and that’s all we’ve seen. The first image was a closeup from a larger picture that was released later, and then we had the picture of him in the drain pipe–which I thought was great. Yeah, he absolutely looks unsettling and creepy in those shots. 

But imagine if this was the only image we saw of Pennywise in the 1990 miniseries before it came out.

People would be losing their shit even more than they are right now. That doesn’t look friendly. That doesn’t look like anything a kid would be tricked by. But that’s the thing about Pennywise, he looks how he wants to look, for his own reasons, at any time. 

As for Cary Fukunaga, of course it sucks that they couldn’t come to an agreement and get this movie out a year earlier. But I’ve read his script–which probably is incredibly close to what the movie would be, as the whole thing was scrapped just before filming began–and while there are some terrific scenes and moments, there are absolutely areas in which it could be improved. 

Some of the differences were minor, but were absolutely things that would irritate the hell out of fans of both the novel and the original miniseries. Like changing Bill Denbrough to Will Denbrough, or having Travis Bowers instead of Henry Bowers. Literally no reason to change names in random instances like that, but it’s something the script keeps doing. 

There are also characters from the book who were totally absent from the miniseries, but who will be a part of the new movie. One major character in particular that I’m excited to see on the screen actually dies first in the script (after the prologue with Georgie, of course.) 

I’m excited that the version we’re getting adheres to some of the bigger things about this script (like the ‘80s setting and some of the characterization of the Losers’ Club) but it’s already clearly made improvements, liking giving the characters the right names.

I’m very excited. There’s so much left out of that book that I want to see on the screen and the new timeframe allows for filmmakers to approach it with the same sense of nostalgia that King brought to the original novel. This is one of my favorite stories of all time and I cannot wait to see it reinterpreted, and in general to see it on the big screen for the very first time. 

And, hey, if people don’t like the way Pennywise is depicted here, it’s looking pretty promising that we’ll be seeing him in Castle Rock. 

Super Excited To Announce My First Book’s Release!

The Corpse Garden is a collection of fourteen of my short stories, including four, previously unreleased tales! In addition to the new tales, NoSleep and Tumblr favorites, such as The Murder In My Backyard and I Buried My Fiance On Our Wedding Day, also make up part of the garden.

If you guys are interested in purchasing a copy, it’s available for Amazon devices here.

Obviously I will continue to post new stories on both here and NoSleep, but the four unreleased stories are book-only!

Thank you for all of your support! I appreciate you all!

that feeling when

you’re minding your own business watching youtube videos and you come across a phrase that sounds very familiar

long story short, [ this video ] talks about the unsolved murder of the robinson family which happened in july of 1968. i had nearly reached the end of it when i was floored by the similarity between a note from the suspected killer and the lyrics of “used to be my girl”.

does alex spend his free time watching videos like this one? is this all a coincidence?

i don’t fucking know but i had to share this with the world.


pretty odd + subtitles
