This explains our irrational fear of drains.
Maybe we've gotten this whole thing wrong. Maybe Pennywise was a character created by the US government to encourage safe practices among children around drains. Maybe the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made sewers too cool and kids were finding their way down there looking for Master Splinter.
Yeah, why else would you create a murderous clown that preys on children? Who would do such a thing!?
The movie is based on Stephen King's book of the same name that was released way back in 1986. Its being directed by Andrés Muschietti, the man who brought you Mama. If you want your kids to stop playing in the rain and stay away from the drain, maybe preview this trailer.
