This one is about a family who are held captive in their own abode by intruders who make them play a life or death style game. As the night goes on, the game becomes more complex. Makes me think Funny Games had a baby with The Purge.

We are very excited for this release and wish we could skip forward a year to see it. Did you know the movie is to be released 27 years after the original? Weirdly enough, in the book, it is stated that “It” returns to Derry approximately every 27 years.
