It

Trivia: Tim Curry admitted that while he enjoyed working on the film, he was ultimately disappointed by the finished product, mainly due to the ending. He felt the final creature (a massive spider) was poorly executed and a massive let-down, and lacked any sense of fear or suspense.

Trivia: When the adults walk into the library, you'll see some of Bill's books on display (Bill is described as the Stephen King character), and all of Bill's books (Whether it's the name, topic, or cover picture) are based in some way on Stephen King's books. For instance - The Glowing/The Shining.

Trivia: At the library IT writes something on the type-writer, a verse which Bill tells the others his mother gave him as a kid to help with his stuttering. The verse goes "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts." In the book, young Bill used this verse to defeat IT in the Chüd ritual.

Trivia: On the audio commentary on the DVD the actors note that they were afraid of Tim Curry during filming and avoided him. This, they note, ended up being a great help for their acting.

Trivia: Henry Bowers shares his name with Robert Scott's companion during the race to the South Pole.

Trivia: The children call themselves the Lucky Seven. Seven is known in fairy tales to be a lucky number.

Trivia: In the scene where IT appears as Belch to convince Henry Bowers to escape from the asylum, Henry says "they have Koontz watching the door, Koontz is the worst, I hate him". One of Stephen King's rival authors is Dean Koontz.
