Stephen King’s original novel did not specify how “It” came to Earth. However, the 1990 television version mentioned that “It” landed on Derry thanks to a falling meteorite, and from there resided below the town. Every 27 years, “It” wakes up, causing many terrifying phenomena in Derry. For example, in the first appearance, “It” made the entire town population – then quite meager – disappear without trace. Another time, “It” caused a bar fire, an explosion Easter eggs in 1908 killed 102 people, including 88 children.
