Horror documentaries have enjoyed a resurgence of late – we’ve been treated to some fine productions taking us behind the scenes of some of our favorite films, and that trend will continue with the debut of PENNYWISE: THE STORY OF IT.
Coming at us from the same folks that brought us the Pet Sematary, Fright Niight, and Hellraiser documentaries, this one will take a deep dive into the production of the 1990 ABC mini-series.
Got a trailer – have a look.
PENNYWISE will play a handful of theatrical dates but most of us will have to wait till the documentary hits the streaming service SCREAMBOX or VOD on July 26th to check it out.
As you can tell by the trailer – they managed to wrangle up the bulk of the cast and crew – and it looks like we might all be treated to some truly special behind-the-scenes coolness.
Here’s the official word from the studio:
“This in-depth look at the 1990 mini-series based on Stephen King’s iconic novel features interviews with many of the cult classic’s key players, including director Tommy Lee Wallace and cast members Seth Green, Richard Thomas, and Tim Curry, who portrayed the notorious monster clown, Pennywise. On VOD and streaming exclusively on Screambox July 26.”
