Tim Curry's performance as Pennywise turned him into one of the quintessential horror movie icons. Yes, the original is a TV miniseries, but Curry made Pennywise a monster movie icon. Curry didn't rely on scary makeup; he was scary by just looking like a regular ol' clown—except he was a murderous, evil demon.

Horror fans are still been raving about "It," noting that Skarsgard looks horrifying. With two hit blockbusters, film critics and moviegoers alike have confirmed that he has filled those clown shoes.

Rolling Stone's Peter Travers wrote about Skarsgard's 2017 performance:

Expect all the bleak summer chatter about the dying box office to fade with the opening of It, a crowdpleasing frightfest bound for box-office paydirt. For weeks now, the trailers for the film version of Stephen King's terror classic have been cranking us up to lose our shit. That evil clown Pennywise, a spectacularly scary Bill Skarsgard (Alexander's brother), is the stuff of nightmares. 

Watch a this spooky clip from the sequel below of Skarsgard's performance.
