The first trailer for the upcoming remake of Stephen King’s It went positively viral when it dropped, and now the second trailer for the clown-filled scare-fest has arrived. As expected, you may want to watch it with the lights on. 

The film certainly taps into that same throwback, 1980s vibe of Stranger Things (and all the classic horror movies that show was riffing on, of course), and Bill Skarsgård’s Pennywise continues to be made of unfiltered nightmare fuel. The trailer is cut almost like an extended clip, and the dynamics between these kids looks to be a lot of fun. You know, at least until they all go missing in the sewers. Along with Skarsgård, the film stars Jaeden Lieberher and Jeremy Ray Taylor. It’s directed by Andy Muschietti.

Here’s the official synopsis:

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
