Stephen King’s terrifying 1986 novel It is getting another movie adaptation courtesy of New Line Cinema, and the first trailer for it looks pants-shittingly terrifying.

The story, which saw a lukewarm attempt at a television miniseries in 1990 fall a good clip short of the mark, centers on the evil clown Pennywise as he becomes the target of a group of pre-teen misfits when children begin disappearing from their small Maine town.

Previous attempts at making the film, one in 2009 and another in 2015, failed before studios could get the project off the ground, but a number of actors are already in place this time around. Argentinian writer/director Andres Muschietti (Mama) will direct, Bill Skarsgard (Hemlock Grove) will play Pennywise, and a host of young actors, including Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Wyatt Oleff (Guardians of the Galaxy), Nicholas Hamilton (Captain Fantastic), and Jack Dylan Glazer (Tales of Halloween) have all signed on.
