The clown Pennywise from Stephen King’s most famous novel IT has a new face. After Tim Curry it is Bill Skarsgård’s turn to incarnate the absolute evil. The cast is a stroke of genius: The kids are played by the best newcomers of the year and their chemistry is spot-on, making sure IT is not only an extremely suspenseful horror film but also a gripping emotional drama about growing up.

Always count on Korea when it comes to graphicness and action. The title villainess of this breathless Cannes Midnighter is beautiful Kim Ok-bin (from Park Chan-wook’s THIRST), trained as an ice cold professional killer she punches, slaughters, cuts and shoots through targets too numerous to count. Stunts and fighting choreographies are so extreme and legendary, already cult!
