“It” is one scary movie, yes, it is. Coulrophobia, or a fear of clowns, is not all that unusual in children. A killer clown, known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, isn’t the only scary thing in “It.” There are scary parents, scary teens and scary situations (jumping from a cliff into a quarry and youths throwing rocks at each other).
