BANGOR, Maine — A single red balloon was spotted hanging in the window of author Stephen King’s home in Maine and many “It” fans know exactly what that means.
The red balloon is a symbol of Pennywise, who, based off King’s 1986 novel, uses the balloons to lure in victims.
King’s Pennywise-inspired decor has certainly added an eerie feel around his neighborhood, as many prepare for the movie’s release on September 8. Even spookier, other “It”-themed props can be spotted around the streets of Bangor, including a bloody rain boot.
The movie has already been seen by many critics, earning a 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
