It’s a key, horrifying moment from the 1990 mini-series, 2017’s big screen return and Stephen King’s seminal horror novel: Georgie’s pavement drain conversation with the clown.
Pennywise offers the young boy a balloon, promising him ‘they all float down here’. Well, now with Zavvi’s help, you can transport your room to the terrifying sewers of Derry, Maine, with a Pennywise balloon lamp for just £29.99.
The red balloon is featured heavily in the marketing for Andy Muschietti’s recent ITfilms. 2017’s first film showed the clown holding one in the poster, and the promotional materials for IT: Chapter Two are absolutely covered in them.
In a particularly iconic scene from the mini-series, starring Tim Curry as the antagonist, balloons filled with blood explode in adult’s faces in the library.
The sequel is set to up the balloon-count as well as the blood and scares. For horror enthusiasts and fans, the balloon lamp would make for an insanely cool addition to your home decor, whether it be the kitchen, living room or study.
The Pennywise balloon lamp stands at 34cm tall, and according to Zavvi’s website, the officially licensed product is made from ‘Breakdown Plastic – an organic additive that helps plastic decompose at landfill without affecting either it’s [sic] structural integrity (before landfill) or the recyclability of the product.’
Muschietti’s horror sequel is expected to be a massive hit – 2017’s IT pulled in more than $700 million at the box office, making it the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
The film will see the continuation of the Losers’ Club plight against a child-eating dancing clown, and has a star-studded cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader are the big hitters, alongside Bill Skarsgård as the nightmarish monster at the centre of it all.
