For the uninitiated it'll serve as an above average jump fest, what with the Stranger Things/Goonies/Stand By Me-esque element of a group of kids in a period setting adding a good dose of substance to proceedings.
For those, like me, who love the book and were of an age to see past the shiteness of the original TV miniseries and be emotionally scarred by Tim Curry's Pennywise, you'll absolutely love it. Stays as faithful to the original as it possibly can. Runs for 2 hours, which is a bit long for a horror, but never at any point felt it was dragging. 8/10

The music and effects were so loud it near burst my ear drums. I couldn't concentrate on the film, which was so so, and I nearly walked out. What is this preoccupation with noise? Isn't a film supposed to be about words and images?

That's wot matters in the end though innit.
Forget character development and plot continuity and that bullshit. That's important when you're watching stuff at home.
In the cinema it's all about comfy seats and legroom.

Thought it was better than the Toby Maguire ones in almost every way, quite enjoyed the humour too but it did lose its way in places. It felt more "real" (in as much as is possible given the material) than previous efforts but Batman Begins/The Dark Knight is still the best for comic book films in that regard.
