Both are great, but Bill Skarsgård was more likable. Meaning I understood why those kids went into the sewer lol.

I like Bill but a little too stiff.   I thought Tim Curry is the better voice actor and has variety of facial expressions for the clown monster.

The clown's name is actually Pennywise. :)

I think this would be far more interesting as an in-character image poll over a people poll. I also agree with Jessica you should work the clown's name into the question. Which actor's performance in 'It' as the monster clown, Pennywise is ... (scarier, more riveting, better, your favorite)? It probably should be worked into the title as well, Face-Off: It's Pennywise or some variation.

Oh yeah...lol.  I recently saw both movies, completely forgot his name.  Thank you for suggestions. Updated Title and question with your  suggestions: "Face-Off: It's Pennywise"  
"Which actor's performance in 'It' as the monster clown, Pennywise is better?"

As for list, I may update to image list.  But I also like the look of actor list too.  Still deciding.  Thanks for idea.

I'm not sure if increasing the poll suggestion's exposure is a concern, but if you do it as a people poll; it will be on IMDb poll page and the respective Tim Curry and Bill Skarsgård pages' poll section only. An image poll will link it those pages, as well as, to the Pennywise character page and the It movie and mini-series. As a result, 'It' and Pennywise fans would be better able to find your poll and vote in it.

I also think it'd be much more likely to go live as an image poll.

And may I suggest one small edit?
Which actor's performance in 'It' as the monster clown, Pennywise, is better? 
(Another comma after Pennywise is better, grammatically.)

'Good face-off, btw!

I'd also suggestion changing the title a bit as there's an unusual situation with this title, lol. IMDb uses AP style, which uses single quotes around film titles (instead of the more common italics) but, of course, if you do that here, it's going to read:

'It''s Pennywise

Lol. So I'd suggest maybe doing Face-Off: Pennywise vs. Pennywise
or
Face-Off: Pennywise from 'It'

: )

Wow, that looks great. That first image is scary, yikes, and the second is creepy. They're great and the whole feel of the poll fits the character.

I usually don't see horror movies because I've gotten so freaked out by a few movies in my life  but I did go to the theater the night that 'It' opened because it's supposed to be so good -- but it was sold out. The thing is that the theater that I went to is a small, independent theater that usually shows lesser-known movies and it has never once even had a line, yet alone be sold out, so that was really strange. It figures that the one time I had the nerve, it was sold out, lol. Now too much time has passed and I've lost my nerve. :)

Thank you!  Lots of people enjoyed it and FX in new movie is much better.   It was a decent average movie, more creepy thriller than scary.  A little overrated though in my opinion. I wish I waited for dvd or streaming.
