Superstar of the Week is Pennywise

"Creepy clowns" seems to be the theme lately. But I figured while were on the topic, why not feature Pennywise for this year's Halloween Superstar of the Week. After all, he did a great job of scaring the $#*! out of me as a kid.

Once a year for a few years, when I was a kid, Steven King's "It" would air as a two part mini series. After watching the first half, I would go to bed completely creeped out. Funny thing is, I wasn't really creeped out by clowns, or necessarily even Pennywise. The movie itself just had a creepy feel. It was definitely one of the better of Steven King's made for TV movies.

The second night, after having seen the characters topple the monster which was behind Pennywise the Clown, I would always go to bed feeling refreshed.
