The final trailer for Andy Muschietti's upcoming horror film It: Chapter Two has arrived, and the intensity levels are absolutely through the roof. Send help.

The first trailer focused predominantly on a slow, increasingly uncomfortable confrontation, but the new one gives away more reveals and offers a faster pace.

The second half of Stephen King's legendary 1986 novel It is explored in It: Chapter Two, in the fictional setting of Derry, Maine. The 1,169-page book is fairly monstrous, to say the least.

Muschietti's 2017 It was a massive hit in the cinema, featuring seven Derry kids becoming aware of a horrible monster preying on their town. The kids set out to fight it, stopping our hearts in the process.

The monster is a shapeshifter, but wears the face of a dancing clown named Pennywise normally. Bill Skarsgård's acting skills as the clown have honestly ruined our lives forever.

While the children somehow defeat Pennywise, It: Chapter Two is set 27 years later and they learn pretty quick that Pennywise is still alive. They therefore decide to return to Derry to fight him one final time.

The first It scared the sh*t out of us, but the latest film looks like it'll have a similar dynamic of Pennywise attacking the kids in turn.

The adult version of the 'Losers' Club' (James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Isaiah Mustafa) face Pennywise once again in isolated settings before the final battle.

There'll be plenty of screaming, that much is certain. It lands in cinemas on September 6, prepare the night lights for sleep.

Lads, It's here. (It's here…get it?)

Horror fans have been spoiled as of late with the insanely good scary movies hitting cinemas – from the likes of Hereditary to Jordan Peele's Get Out and Us and even another installment of the horror OG franchise that is Halloween.

So when Stephen Kings It was remade in 2017, it came at the perfect time..and went on to gross $700 million worldwide. 

Now the sequel has arrived and judging by the trailer, it looks devilishly good.

The first movie centered on a group of misfits or ''Losers'' as they were dubbed in 1980s Derry,  Maine who all banded together to fight Pennywise the clown.

Now, 30 years later they're all back as adults…but Pennywise is still lurking. 

What made the first installment such a success was the chemistry between the young leads who effortlessly sparked off each other and were…genuinely funny. 

It wasn't that scary – think more of a Stranger Things/Goonies vibe but still with some jump scares.

The cast for Chapter 2 looks unreal – we've got Jessica Chastain, James McEvoy and Bill Hader making the line up as the grown-up Losers.

What's cool is the kids picked what actors they wanted to play their older characters and Bill Hader as grown-up Richie was young Richie's (Finn Wolfhard's) personal pick for the role.

The trailer itself looks creepy AF – it opens on an old lady who isn't as she seems.

The kids appear in flashback moments and it looks like it's gonna be a lot scarier than the first one

Director Andy Muschietti did promise that the sequel would be more intense than the first film and it looks like he delivered.  

Also – it's gotten the best endorsement it can – author of the novel Stephen King has openly praised the flick.

He took to social media to say, ''Looking forward to IT CHAPTER 2? You should be. I've seen it, and it's terrific. The trailer is coming Thursday, at noon. You'll float.''

The writer is notoriously tough to impress – he famously hated The Shining, so if he likes this movie what more could you want?

IT: Chapter Two hits cinemas on September 6 – see you there.

When we think of thrillers, horror and books that psychologically messed us up – Stephen King's name comes to mind. 

He is the King (sorry, couldn't help the pun), of creating some of the darkest worlds and fantasies, such as IT and The Shining.

His book Pet Sematary has once again been adapted into a film, after it was adapted from the book in 1989. 

The remake got the go ahead in December and the trailer alone will have you hopping out of your seat.

The spooky tale follows a family that has relocated out of Boston, and bought a beautiful house with a whole forest as a back garden – sounds lovely, right? – WRONG.

Jason Clarke stars as a doctor, Louis Creed who is initially very happy that his family is now living in the country, until tragedy strikes when their toddler dies in a car accident.

Actor John Lithgrow takes on the role of their friendly neighbour, Jud Crandall, who shows them the forest or rather the misspelled "pet sematary".

Little do they know it contains the power to bring anything that was buried there back to life – enter the creepy.  

Lithgrow tells the audience in the trailer to the beat of some freaky drums: "It was a myth. Kids used to dare each other to go into the woods at night. They knew the power of that place. They feared it. Those woods belong to something else … The ground is bad…"

"It maybe just some crazy folk tale But there is something out in those woods. Something that brings things back. Sometimes dead is better." – Grim.

To add in the extra chill factor, it shows children masked as animals carrying a rather large cross through the woods…Oh – and their family cat is back from the dead.

Prepare yourself this April for what looks to be a terrifying watch.

And if you loved the smash hit, IT – this movie will probably be right up your alley.

If you suffer from a serious fear of clowns as a result of seeing IT as a child, you're most certainly not alone.

Ever since clapping eyes on Stephen King's crazed creation back in the early 90s, we've lived in terror of everything and anything clown-related.

So, it's fair to say we're not exactly clambering over each other for front-row seats to the new adaptation of the iconic movie… and yet we can't bear to miss out especially given Stephen King's recent seal of approval.

Commenting on the film starring Bill Skarsgard, the hugely popular horror writer admitted that he was taken aback by the calibre of the movie, saying: "I had hopes, but I was not prepared for how good it really was."

"It’s something that’s different, and at the same time, it’s something that audiences are gonna relate to," he added.

And for the cynics who doubt the quality of the scares, Stephen insists that the calibre lies in the audience's connection with the characters.

"To me, it’s all about character. If you like the characters… if you care… the scares generally work. I’m sure my fans will enjoy the movie. I think they’re gonna really enjoy the movie."

Enjoy is a strong word, we'd go with 'endure'.

She may be a world-famous superstar caught up in a lot of controversy, but it turns out Taylor isn't the only talented one in her family.

Taylor's younger brother, Austin, just made his acting debut alongside Pierce Brosnan for the upcoming movie I.T.

However, in the trailer, his part is cut to a few seconds:

Last year, Taylor congratulated her brother on Instagram when he finished filming the movie.

She shared a photo of him sitting in an old-fashioned car and captioned it: “My brother @austinkingsleyswift just acted in his first movie and I’m all proud and stuff.”

If he does become world famous, he's kinda already used to the lavish lifestyle as Tay likes to bring him along to red carpet events (when she doesn't have a date).
