When I was about six or so, I was playing in the living room and my brother started watching STEPHEN KING’s IT– the miniseries starring TIM CURRY. I asked my brother if I should leave, and he said, “If you want to.” I decided to stay, and watched through the opening bit alright, and then it showed a little girl playing while her mom goes inside the house. She then hears goofy laughter and sees a clown appearing behind flapping sheets while spooky music plays. The next scene showed her being loaded into an ambulance with a white sheet over her face. If you want more than a description, here’s the scene:
I don’t know if the rest of the movie would have traumatized me, because I ran away. What I did afterwards or where I went escapes me. I’m not afraid of clowns, although to this day I still get a bit anxious every time I see TIM CURRY.
