The first trailer for It: Chapter Two isn’t the kind of teaser we’ve come to expect. It’s a horror short in its own right.

The latest look at the follow-up to Andy Muschietti‘s phenomenal It shows a grown-up Beverly (Jessica Chastain) return to the haunted town of Derry for reasons only known to her and God.

Her meeting with a sweet old biddy coagulates into something much more sinister. Things skitter in the background, there’s a flash of an open sore, and then, the reveal: the home is much more familiar than she would have liked.

The clip, released overnight, also showcases other adult members of the infamous Loser’s Club. Stars including James McAvoy and Bill Hader can be seen confronting Stephen King‘s occult clown, while Bill Skarsgård returns as the big dude himself.

It: Chapter Two is slated to hit Aussie screens on September 5 this year. Prepare thyself.
