Makeup Artist Bart Mixon Breaks Down the Looks for IT (1990) and More

With credits like A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, Fright Night 2, RoboCop, and Planet of the Apes, it’s safe to say special effects makeup artist Bart Mixon is a veteran in the industry. One of his most notable projects, the 1990 IT miniseries, is now the subject of a documentary titled Pennywise: The Story of IT. Directed by John Campopiano and Chris Griffiths, the doc explores the legacy of the show as well as the cultural impact that Pennywise has had on a generation of fans. A big reason for the impact is Tim Curry’s terrifying look, which Bart helped transform. We spoke to Bart in depth below about his experience on that series and many more.
