It’s Friday, which means it’s time for another Maestro’s Picks!
With a new adaptation of Stephen King’s It hitting theaters in less than a week, a lot of viewers may be popping in their discs of the original ABC miniseries starting the immortal Tim Curry as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. However, if you don’t have three-and-a-half hours to spare, you can try James A. Janisse’s shorter recap, a part of his excellent Kill Count series on the Dead Meat YouTube Channel.
With an emphasis on the kills, his series sets itself apart from the other countless versions of the same premise online with his witty and irreverent synopsis of everything onscreen. Beginning with slasher films like the Friday the 13th series, Janisse has branched out into other horror flicks such as Night of the Living Dead, Get Out, and of course, It. He is currently in the middle of the Child’s Play series.
