It by Stephen King

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.

Frankenstein’s creature has many differences from other popular monsters associated with Halloween. Rather than being based off an ancient legend, religious concept, or historical figure, his origin is solely literary in nature, being confined to one book. Despite this, public perception of the creature has changed greatly since the publication of the original novel, leading to wildly divergent styles and plotlines in its various film adaptations.
 
People’s perceptions of the creature have become so warped by time and decades of misleading film posters and article titles that most use the name “Frankenstein” to refer to the creature itself, rather than the scientist who created him!  An understanding of literary history is necessary to understand the truth of the creature’s tragic history and how decades of film adaptations changed him into the lumbering brute most know him as today.
