It’s Director Had To Keep Pennywise Away From The Child Actors Between Takes

Even if you’ve never seen Pennywise the Dancing Clown, you know what it’s supposed to look like. Scary, murderous clowns are a thing in our culture, the visual markers for which we’re all familiar with to varying degrees.
