Be wary while walking the streets of Sydney today as you may come across a haunting sign that Pennywise is on his way…


Creepy red balloons tied to drains and sewer gates have been cropping up all over the city and soon you’ll float too.

People have been taking to Twitter this morning to share photos of the mysterious balloons that appeared overnight which were accompanied by the caption ‘It is closer than you think’.


People have been making the link between the creepy red balloons and the upcoming release of the highly anticipated film, It.

Based on the first half of Stephen King’s 1986 novel, the film follows The Losers’ Club – a group of outcasts who must face the terrifying clown Pennywise – as they attempt to track down children who are disappearing from their town.

A red balloon means that Pennywise is close by, so be careful if you see one…

You can watch the trailer here:

Pressure is on for director Andy Muschietti as fans love the first adaptation of the novel, a two-part feature-length television show that starred Tim Curry as Pennywise.

However, critics are loving the new horror film calling it ‘totally terrifying’ and ‘scary as shit’.


We can’t wait to see the film even though we know it’s guaranteed to give us nightmares.

Get ready to hide behind a coat when It is released in UK and US cinemas on September 8.
