Tim Curry's Pennywise invaded living rooms across the country in 1990 during ABC's two-episode miniseries adaptation of Stephen King's IT. Curry's powerful performance brought the creepiness of clowns to a whole new level for an entire generation of viewers, and now, over 25 years later, Warner Bros. is preparing to release Stephen King's IT on Blu-ray for the first time in the US, complete with a collectible item for fans to add to their wardrobes.

According to Blu-ray.com, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Stephen King's IT on Blu-ray / DVD on October 4th. Bonus features have not yet been revealed for the two-disc release, although it will come with a Pennywise shirt shown in the image below. Barring an upcoming reveal of a new sleeve, the artwork for the Blu-ray will be the same image used for the VHS and DVD releases.

The new IT film scheduled to come out next year likely played a part in the upcoming (and long-awaited) Blu-ray release of Stephen King's IT. Hopefully there will be a special features announcement in the near future, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on further details regarding this release. In the meantime, you can view the Blu-ray / DVD cover art, discs, and T-shirt in the images below (via Amazon), and for those not familiar with the IT miniseries, we have its official synopsis:

"It can be anything. A fanged monster that won't stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King.

Based on the King Of Horror's 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but he's not clowning around. Instead, he terrifies youngsters and brings some to their untimely doom - until some wily kids fight back.The evil resurfaces 30 years later: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And friends who vividly remember youthful terrors reunite to fight It."

Directed by Tommy Lee Wallace and adapted for the small screen by Wallace and Lawrence D. Cohen, Stephen King's IT stars Tim Curry, Harry Anderson, Dennis Christopher, Olivia Hussey, Richard Masur, Annette O'Toole, Tim Reid, John Ritter, and Richard Thomas.
