"You'll float too, Anderson." With Halloween lurking right around the corner like Haddonfield's favorite Shape, it's once again that magical time of year when Saturday Night Live reveals its horror-themed skits. Last year a new autumn icon was born with Tom Hanks' quotable David. S. Pumpkins, and now SNL has given us "Kellywise," their comedic (and creepy) twist on Pennywise from the new IT movie.
Featuring Kate McKinnon as Kellyanne Conway and Alex Moffat as Anderson Cooper, the new "Kellywise" skit shows McKinnon's funny (yet still genuinely unsettling) take on Pennywise from the new IT movie. Moffat's Cooper, meanwhile, takes on the role of poor Georgie, yellow rain slicker and all, who encounters "Kellywise" in a storm drain outside the news studio.
In addition to mixing in some humor with horror, McKinnon does a remarkable job replicating Bill Skarsgård's take on the titular character from Stephen King's IT, nailing the eerie annunciations and verbal ticks of the Derry menace.
