    Dude the main female character was pretty hot in hot and the movie was pretty damn disturbing for a kids horror film but I loved it

    I use to get these books as a kid in elementary school, when the scholastic book van thing came, and setup in the library.. and i loved them as a kid! When i saw this coming out as a movie, i was stoked.. so, definitely going to see this.. maybe next they’ll make a movie or something for the ‘the stinky cheese bread man’... hah!

    Did IGN seriously pull politics into a movie based on a children's horror book?

    Did people really liked this movie? Maybe I didn’t understand it because I saw it as a really easy to forget cheap horror movie...

    Im impressed by the makeup, costumes and hiring the right people i.e. contortionist to dress up like the monsters! Barely use of CGI unlike many movies nowadays

    How ironic that the Jangley Man was done with practicle effects and people keep calling it bad CG.

      @ryan jones Ironically most of that was rod puppets. Not the part where he got hit by the car but in the police station that used rod puppets to make the limbs move around.

      It WAS CG when he fell apart and had to pull himself back together.

    Just watched. The narrative may remind you of goosebumps but this is the scariest pg13 movie ever

    Don't care about the diversity of the film, the cast did well in the parts they played, that's all that mattered. I was sufficiently impressed by this film, especially after growing up with the stories

    Saw this last night. GREAT show! I always love practical effects. They did a great job. It takes a LOT for me to get creeped out. Anyone who hasn’t seen this yet and likes scary movies.. THIS won’t disappoint and totally worth every cent!

    This is probably scarier than those garbage "horror movies" like The Nun, Ghost Of La Lorna, Annabelle, Conjuring.

      Quinn of Wrestling lmao dude Ramon is Mexican. This is relevant to the movie for reasons mentioned below. Not IGN’s fault.

      A guy locked Ramon and others in a basement then wrote “Wetback” on the car. After this, the guy who locked them in the basement died. Because of this, they couldn’t go to the police, and they got arrested because police thought Ramon killed him.

    I can't wait to see this tonight

    Should have been an R rated film. Everyone who read the books back in the day are adults now. Just look at how well It did

    There are 3 students are died: Tommy, Augie and Chuck, while Chuck's sister went hospitalised (asylum). Ghosts and monsters are in this movie kind of scares me out. Hopefully there is next sequel to this movie. I love it, i would like to give it 9 out of 10 stars. It remind me of of a childhood scary story. In the end Ramon went to Vietnam for a war while Stella is going to figure out how to turn their friends back to life by using Sarah Bellow's book (i cant wait for the next sequel of this movie). So excited.

    Why do you feel the need to draw attention to the gender/ethnicity of the cast? It's irrelevant.
    They are pieces of information that do not define the film. Stop trying so hard, it's embarrassing.
