"You killed my brother George, you bastard! Let's see you now. Let's see you now. It's scared of us you know? I can feel that. I swear to God I can. I...I wanna kill it. Help me. Please help me. Help me." - Young Bill Denbrough

Pennywise the Clown killed Bill Denbrough's (Jonathan Brandis) brother, Georgie and with the help of his friends he sets out for revenge. After an initial encounter, the children believe they had defeated the creature, but thirty years later "IT" reappears and kills more children.

The murders alert town librarian Mike Hanlon (Tim Reid) - one of the former Seven - that once again "It" was alive. He quickly contacts his childhood friends and soon one-by-one they reluctantly return to their hometown to do battle. Unfortunately, Stanley (Richard Masur) - another of the former Seven - is so terrified that he commits suicide in his tub. The word "IT" spelled in blood on the bathroom's tiled wall.
