If you've somehow been able to avoid nightmares of clowns after seeing the latest trailer for the IT movie, then the latest image from the film might do the trick in haunting your dreams. 

Unveiled by Empire, the latest image from IT is a gorgeous, scary shot of Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise. Wearing a Renaissance-era costume with a well-worn ruff, Pennywise's lips are spread in a teeth-baring grin below an impossibly long forehead, the white makeup cracking like an egg on the slope leading up to his red-orange hair. This is truly the stuff of nightmares.

The new IT movie will be released in theaters on September 8th, and a new haunted house experience inspired by the film has also been announced. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more details, and check out the new image below.

"New Line Cinema’s horror thriller “IT,” directed by Andy Muschietti (“Mama”), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades.

When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

“IT” stars Bill Skarsgård (“Allegiant,” TV’s “Hemlock Grove”) as the story’s central villain, Pennywise. An ensemble of young actors also star in the film, including Jaeden Lieberher (“Midnight Special”), Jeremy Ray Taylor (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip”), Sophia Lillis (“37”), Finn Wolfhard (TV’s “Stranger Things”), Wyatt Oleff (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Chosen Jacobs (upcoming “Cops and Robbers”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“Tales of Halloween”), Nicholas Hamilton (“Captain Fantastic”) and Jackson Robert Scott, making his film debut.

Slated for release on September 8, 2017, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.
