RS - Sample Opening: IT

Stephen Kings It (Tommy Lee Wallace, 1990)
Budget : Not Available
Box Office : Not Available

Begins with an old theater, with the writing all wonky perhaps forshadowing something
Lightning in the background signifying a storm coming for foreshadowing things to happen
Clothes on washing line blowing in the wind of the storm coming
CU of cups/pots full of water and rain pouring into them
Girl on her tricycle peddling down the road and singing "incy wincy spider" which is ironic because the clown in the film lives in a drain
Her mother is taking the washing down and brining it inside, she sees her daughter and asks her to hurry because of the storm
The girl walks towards the front door but sees her doll in the middle of the path up to the door and stops to pick it up
She looks at it, but then hears laughing from behind the washing line, she stops and looks over to see the clown looking right at her.
The clown moves in for the kill
The mother walks out the door to get more washing to find her daughter has gone missing
The tricycle is just left on the path and she lets out a big scream ending the scene
