What was Pennywise really?

Pennywise (the dancing clown) was a character in Stephen King's IT -a book, later a film. He first appears in 1740, removing 300 people from a Derry township.

What part did Stephen King play in the movie IT?

What does the tree house symbolize in the movie stand by me by Stephen King?

Stephen King did not actually write the film; instead, the film was loosely based on his short story "The Body". This story, incidentally, was inspired by King's real life experience of seeing a friend hit and killed by a train when King was very young.

King's stories often treat childhood as the most sacred, vital part of...
