A debate among my friends and I needs to be settled IMMEDIATELY. Which Pennywise is scarier: the old Pennywise, or the new Pennywise?

I went to watch the IT movie at the Delsea Drive-Thru around two weeks ago. While the movie scared the S**T out of me - it still has absolutely nothing on the original TV-series.

I mean, Tim Curry KILLS it as Pennywise.

Oh hell no. His face alone was cause enough for me to avoid clowns at every birthday party I went to thereafter.

Just look at the way he mocks us! He's pretty much screaming, "tag you're it!" in a game you didn't ask to be part of.

OK, enough of Tim Curry. Let's see Bill Skarsgard as the new Pennywise clown:

Definitely scary, who smiles like that?

Nope, it's still not real enough for me. I can completely tell you're fake.

I'll admit it -- that finally clip scared the living daylights out of me. Yet, I still stand by Tim Curry as Pennywise! He has less CGI effects, and looks like a clown you would definitely come across in real life.

Shout-out to Tim Curry for causing the amount of people afraid of clowns today:

What do you think? Who is the scarier Pennywise?? Comment below and let's settle this once and for all.
