SDCC: Pennywise Stalks San Diego in Massive Game of Hide and Seek

Warner Brothers

For those of you that attended San Diego Comic-Con last year you may remember our STRANGER THINGS Scavenger Hunt to #FindWill.

Now it looks like another group of kids have gone missing in Warner Brothers new film IT. In Derry, Maine, seven friends come face-to-face with a shape shifter, who takes the form of an evil clown named Pennywise who targets children. It looks like he left Maine and is lurking around Comic-Con. That is why we are hosting a massive man hunt and a huge game of hide and seek to help us find Pennywise before he finds the kids.

All week during SDCC (Thursday – Saturday) we will be posting clues on Twitter and around Comic-Con as to the whereabouts of Pennywise. Follow @BoomHowdy and @DownrightCreepy on Twitter and search for #SDCCWeFloat to get clues and updates on the man hunt. If we see Pennywise we will let you know where his location is and you must get there as fast as you can to catch him and save the “Losers” from getting snatched up. If you do so you might be rewarded by the Deery Police Department with a sweet prize that is fitting of 1989 when the film takes place.
