It's easily one of the most anticipated films of the year, and now it seems that it'll not only perform commercially, but critically as well.

Early reviews from US outlets made their way online last night and the word is resoundingly positive, with many critics praising the casting of Bill Skarsgard as Pennywise, the cinematography, Stranger Things alum Finn Wolfhard, and the blending of humour and horror. We'll have our own review up (hopefully) later this week and the film releases nationwide on September 8th, but in the meantime, here's what our colleagues in the US made of it.
