He saw IT and IT was wonderful. Stephen King never is shy when it comes to critiquing when one of his novels is interpreted to screen but in regards to IT, he was pleased.

IT originally was introduced in 1986 as a novel written by the one and only wizard of the wicked word, Stephen King. In 1990 a miniseries adapted from the novel starred Tim Curry as Pennywise The Dancing Clown and has since been a horror of historical value.

Stephen King seems pleased per producer Seth Grahame-Smith. Smith took to Instagram passing along a message from Mr. King with his feelings once viewing director, Andrés Muschietti‘s upcoming version of IT.

I can die now. Goodbye. I’m dead. 🎈
