“IT” Review

By Jake Paz-Priel

November 13, 2017

On the surface, director Andres Muschietti’s “It” can be interpreted as a superficial adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 classic novel; but when analyzed, the film yields an underlying exposition not only on the things we fear, but why we fear them. Like any horror movie worth its salt, “It...

You walk into an Indian restaurant and immediately, a strong aroma tingles your nose. A hint of turmeric, cumin, garam masala … spices, spices, and more spices.
