Welcome to Derry, Maine. It's a small town with plenty of big secrets . . . and its own dancing clown.
Derry is situated along Interstate 95, to the south of Dexter, Maine, and to the west of bigger cities, such as Bangor and Haven. The town has a long history of human settlement, stretching back to the early days of America in the 18th century. Derry also has a history of unspeakable tragedy, including strange disappearances of settlers, and the mysterious explosion of Kitchener Ironworks in 1906, which killed a group of 88 children and 42 adults who were participating in an Easter egg hunt.
Then, in the 1950s, the disappearances start again.
During the summer’s excitement over the massive, new blockbusters, many older and more unusual films are neglected and ignored. These older monster films, though they lack the digital effects and huge budgets of more modern releases, are classics of their genre, with clever performances and intriguing plots. One day this summer, you may feel compelled to take a trip back in time and see some of these legendary movies for yourself.
