The new It reboot has been filling seats and breaking box office records, nabbing the biggest opening weekend for a horror film. And as you might expect, people are getting really into it. For example, several Alamo Drafthouse theatres in the US held “Clowns Only” screenings (surprisingly not pissing off the same guys who freaked out over the Wonder Woman version). Then, of course, you have fans eager to out-freak each other out.

At the Alamo Drafthouse in Phoenix, Jackson Robert Scott (who plays Georgie Denbrough) got into character when stopping by for a screening of It. The theatre nabbed a few photos of Scott eerily chilling in the empty theatre, balloons and all, presumably before a bunch of moviegoers crap their collective pants at the sight of Georgie himself warning them they’d soon be floating too.
As terrifying as it might be to share a theatre with the kid who’s simultaneously screaming nightmares in your face onscreen, it’s nothing compared to one man’s harrowing experience in England, where he was greeted by the very thing that will take over your nightmares tonight. You’re welcome.

Let us know in the comments if you’ve had any creepy sightings when you’ve gone to see It in theatres. If you haven’t seen It yet, consider yourself warned.
