We’ve been featuring a lot of Stephen King stories lately. If you haven’t noticed, we have been featuring Stephen King horror/thriller stories as our Movie Friday theme for the month of October. (We wanted to get into the Halloween spirit!)

First, we showcased the best of King-inspired fan art for The Shining. Then, we dug into the bloody mess that is Carrie. And now, we move onto a film that wasn’t ever a theatrical film, but rather a made-for-television special: It.

If you’re unfamiliar with the film, It is a 1990 horror miniseries that aired on ABC. We’re introduced to ‘Pennywise the Clown,’ a malevolent, shape-shifting monster terrorizes the fictional town of Derry, Main, with a series of horrid acts, from kidnapping to brutally murdering children. He lurks the sewers, seeking his next victim. A group of misfits, who all encounter ‘It’ as children in the beginning of the story, decide to band together as adults to defeat the monster once an for all.

The television special received mixed reviews from critics but all could agree that Tim Curry was praise-worthy in his portrayal as Pennywise. (Translation: he was frickin’ terrifying.) While the special effects cannot compare to today’s capabilities, It has transcended into pop culture hit. Hollywood has even decided to re-adapt the series into a 2-part film that’s sure to frighten audiences for years to come (when it’s finally released).

So, in typical Redesign Revolution fashion, we scoured the internet for artists who were inspired enough by the Stephen King story to create their own movie poster/book cover redesign. These were the best 10, having brilliantly incorporated the film’s motifs into the reinterpretations. Check them out below.
