The biggest reason why IT was such a success is because of the film's antagonist: Pennywise the Clown. I mean, he's just a terror to behold, and I'm talking about both versions.
He's probably going to be the number one Halloween costume this year, which is just great for anyone who has a fear of clowns.
And because Pennywise's mug lends itself perfectly to anything spook-related, you can understand why a bunch of people are carving his face on their pumpkins to celebrate Halloween.
Sure, it makes perfect sense to make your pumpkin look as scary as possible, but that doesn't mean I have to like it!

Me: “what do you want it to look like?”
Pete: “It. I want Pennywise’s face sitting on our steps..”
Just, why, why are they doing this to me?
Like, I'm going to have to take my kid out trick-or-treating and see this friggin' glowing thing grinning at me in the middle of the night. No thanks.
Some of these are just too good.
And yes, on some level I admire their craftsmanship.
But that still doesn't change the fact that this damn clown's face is going to be everywhere.
And I'm finding that very hard to deal with right now.
I'll do my best to be strong, though.
