    When Lance Cardinal saw the spooky estate in the blood-chilling remake of Stephen King's It, he couldn't help but bring it to life.

    The northern Alberta artist spent hundreds of hours over two months building a perfect model replica of the Neibolt House.

    King's most notorious haunted estate is a key location in both the book and the films.

    It is abandoned and creepy from the outside, and filled with endless horrors on the inside — thanks to the homicidal clown that lurks within.

    The smaller version is its own little house of horrors, said Cardinal.

    "It's an old Victorian home with turrets and old, broken-down windows and doors, and siding that's decrepit and old and falling apart," Cardinal said in an interview with CBC Radio's Edmonton AM.

    "It's kind of like that old house on the street that everyone knows about, that has been abandoned for many years and is the eyesore of the neighbourhood."

    Cardinal said the haunted estate is already a pop culture icon, and he wanted to pay homage to the film.

    Cardinal hopes his smaller version still has the same big scare factor for die-hard horror fans.

    "I think there is a lot of investment that people put into pop culture icons of this kind," said Cardinal, a member of the Bigstone Cree Nation in Calling Lake.

    "I love pop culture myself so I like to capture these things that evoke memories or instill a feeling that someone felt when they watched the film."

    Cardinal, a professional set designer, actor, and producer is creative director of the Calling Lake Arts Academy, a performing arts academy for Indigenous youth.

    He spent most of his spare time this fall working on the model, sourcing scrap materials from wherever he could find them.

    Cardinal built the entire home from scratch, based on photographs from the set, which was built specifically for the film in Oshawa, Ontario,

    He ended up using everything from Styrofoam to scraps, as materials.

    The grass was made from the bristles of a $3-dollar broom. The sunflowers that dot the rotting front yard were made with paper, wire and an old plastic house plant. The shingles were made with painted card stock. The siding was made from old pizza boxes.

    The end result is 46 inches wide, 30 inches deep and 30 inches high and includes a light-up interior and a full front yard and fences, as seen in the film.

    Cardinal said he's heard accolades from the film crew, and received a message of thanks from the owner of the property where the set was constructed.

    It's not the first time one of Cardinal's tiny masterpieces has earned a nod from Hollywood. In 2009, when photographs of his replica of the Muppet Theatre were shared online, they went viral and eventually caught the attention of the Jim Henson Company.

    Within a few weeks, Cardinal received a personal letter of thanks from the Henson family.

    Cardinal began creating miniatures 35 years ago, in Grade 2 — and it remains one his favourite creative escapes.

    "For me, creating something in replica or in miniature, especially down to every single detail, it's an escape for anyone who will look at this model, and for me myself to escape my own reality.

    "This is kind of my passion."

    Man, I can't even imagine the patience it takes to create a replica of that caliber. It's pretty damn neat.

    This year's adaptation of Stephen King's IT was a massive undertaking, clocking in at over two hours in its attempt to bring the immense novel to life. Even with the long running time, many scenes had to be shortened or completely cut out to make a more manageable film.

    The Blu-ray doesn't hit shelves until January 9, 2018, but a user on the Blu-ray.com forum uncovered the details of all of the special features and deleted scenes, as it is currently available in Australia.

    Check out the breakdown of the deleted/extended scenes below:

    Georgie Catches Boat (Opening Gag Scene): "When Georgie grabs for the boat in the opening…he gets it and walks away, saying 'See you later!' to a frustrated Pennywise. Gotta admit, I laughed."
    Stanley’s Dad corrects him (Extended scene): "Stanley is reciting Hebrew in a synagogue, but his Dad jumps in to correct his pronunciation."
    Denbrough family dinner: "Bill sits at the dinner table while his Dad reads a magazine and his Mum washes up. Bill starts talking about their family trip for the year, but his Mum walks off upset. His Dad explains that Georgie was really looking forward to it."
    Bill’s Dad looks in the basement, et al: "After Bill has his encounter with Pennywise in the basement, he runs into his father. His Dad has a look in the basement, doesn’t find anything, and tells Bill to go to bed. Meanwhile, Henry tries to sneak out past his Dad, and gets into a car with Victor and Belch. They see Mike ride past on his bike."
    Outside the Neibolt house: "Mike, Beverly, Ben and Stanley are outside the house while Bill, Eddie and Richie are inside. Stanley talks about not being able to go inside while Mike comforts him. Ben places his hand on Beverly’s shoulder."
    Evacuating the Neibolt house (Extended scene): "Just an extended scene of the Losers’ Club leaving the house and getting on their bikes."
    Stanley’s Bar Mitzvah speech: "Self-explanatory. Stanley delivers a speech after his Bar Mitzvah about “indifference,” during which there’s a brief montage showing what the other kids are up to. He makes a bit of a scene and storms off while Richie claps."
    Eddie at Keene’s pharmacy (Extended scene): "Just an extended scene at the pharmacy as Eddie talks to the girl who signs his cast with 'Loser.'"
    Henry and Bullies wait outside (Extended scene): "As the Losers’ Club heads into the Neibolt house, Henry sits in his car with his face covered in blood. Belch and Victor are dead with throats slit."
    The Losers find Georgie’s walkie: "Bill picks up Georgie’s walkie right before Henry attacks Mike at the top of the well."
    Denbrough family vacation: "After saying goodbye to Beverly at the end of the movie, Bill and his parents are packing for the family vacation Bill was talking about in an earlier deleted scene. This subplot does kind of enhance the family dynamic. As the car drives away, the camera pulls in to the drain where Georgie was taken. Camera stops, and rain starts to hit the pavement. This would have been a perfect final shot."

    The user also described what to expect of all the special features:

    Pennywise Lives (16:25) – "A behind-the-scenes featurette about Pennywise, of course."
    The Losers’ Club (15:42) – "A featurette about the child actors in the movie."
    Author of Fear (13:51) – "An extended interview with Stephen King, who talks at length about writing the book. He mentions that Derry was based off a town in Maine called Bangor."

    You can grab the Blu-ray for yourself when it debuts on January 9, 2018.

    Anyone else holding out for the director's cut? Even considering waiting until part 2 for a complete box set given the double dips this will probably get.

    As much as it would pain me to skip the initial release (I've been desperately awaiting a "pausable" watching experience to allow discussion), this is a hell of an idea.

    Definitely gonna wait for the director's cut.

    That Walmart exclusive is cool, but I can't believe that it's only gonna have "IT" on the cover and no other wording.
