Friday Poll: Should I Watch IT or Stranger Things First? Also, Pick Your Favorite Clown...

Friday Poll: Should I Watch IT or Stranger Things First? Also, Pick Your Favorite Clown...

Brother Marcus loves Stephen King's IT and he loved the movie, reviewer Jarrod enjoys Stephen King's IT and he thought differently about the movie - I'm just settled on this: with the exception of Krusty and Homey, I pretty much hate clowns. Across the board. Obviously, this is not some new thing - clowns are really awful and have been freaking the hell out of people since Frankenfurter exchanged his pumps for exaggerated footwear way back in 1990 (and they probably freaked people out wayyy sooner than that - you're going to tell me some alcoholic animal abuser in white facepaint traveling with Ringling Bros. didn't give a 5-year old the heebie jeebs back in the 1940s? I'd rather be helplessly dangling from an acrobat rung Flying Grayson style). Also, really not the biggest horror flick fan, but you know what? I'm a fan of a good story and IT sounds like it has that. So yeah, I kinda want to popcorn it up with that prick, Pennywise.

But after two years or so, I still haven't seen Stranger Things: you know, that other spooky form of 80s era entertainment that was probably loosely based off of IT? All I know is that Will Byers disappears, Eleven's cool, some lady teacher sucks and there's a sort of teeth-faced flower monster living in another dimension. Hey, fair enough.  I hear way more good things about it than I do stranger.

So what should I watch first? Should I mentally scar myself further by going to see IT alone or do I fire up my Netflix and binge on the kinda scary, yet kinda fun nostalgia train that is Stranger Things? Make your vote and give your reason below:

I'm not including The Joker since he'd clean house.

Also I think I'd rather see this standing in front of me...
