About Pennywise

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is the infamous “It” character from Stephen King’s horror novel by the same name. Pennywise’s clown persona is just a disguise adopted to attract and devour children. It can kill adults just as easily, but since children’s fears are simpler and easier to visualize, Pennywise limits its victims to children only.

It resides in the small town of Derry where it came in as an asteroid during prehistoric times. Pennywise awakes approximately every 30 years and stays awakes for two entire years to devour children. Apparently, terrorizing children makes their meat even more delicious. The most terrifying aspect of his murders is that no crime he commits can is reported because people are completely unaware of its existence.
