For 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her teenage friends must find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind.

One of the greatest horrors of the last decade
Verified purchase
Relentlessly foreboding, and the soundtrack is the icing on the cake. This takes a relatively simple concept originally introduced by Alfred Hitchcock (the invasion of personal safety), and paces is application brilliantly layer by layer. With some great camera shots, some cleverly imply upcoming revelations. This one gets under your skin.

One to watch if you love the Birds, Psycho, Twin Peaks, the Conjuring, Insidious, the Exorcist, IT and Stranger Things.

It flopped
Verified purchase
In recent years I have been watching videos on youtube with various top ten style movies or movie moments etc, and quite often they throw up obscure movies I have never heard of, and as long as I like the sound of the concept and can be gotten cheap, I give them a try. This was one such movie. I liked the idea behind this movie but sadly the execution was weak.
For starters, how the hell did the first guy find out about how this curse works? It is never explained.
Other things that made no sense is why did she have sex while in hospital with someone who did not even believe anything about it, and the just essentially leave him to his own fate?
And why, if we already learned that the entity could survive being shot, did they think electricuting in a pool would work?
The acting overall was pretty damn poor as well.

Not the worst movie ever, but damn they wasted a cool concept with a poorly written, poorly acted movie.

pointless scenes to a plot
Verified purchase
The starting of the film builds tension and an opening with a somehow brutally murdered girl in the middle of no where with a very worrying conversation with her parents before her death. Ok so why did the dialogue not imply any concern on her parents perspective of her where a bouts and for her to come home. The film then takes us to a scene of a girl in a pool at her house (the main character of the film) the story line from this point is okay, a slow build up of a twisted fate which is unfairly thrust upon her. Wondering who the first girl in the opening scene was and her relevance to this film at this point. Girl interluded in a series of potential threat of life from unnatural entity that no one excepts she can see, that takes a form of any persons known or unknown. She tries for the first time to escape this terrifying ordeal by passing on the curse to someone else, but fails, due the volunteer who clearly underestimated the existence of this curse. Pretty predictable here. Then finally the childhood crush intervenes to help her, and still unsure of their attempt and 'killing' the threat they finally sleep with each after many insinuations deploring their lust and attraction for each other. The scene end with a half framing technique. The scene (street view submerging in, before the girl deciding to 'escape' to middle of no where) except at the end the new couple are holding hands and walking down the street suppodesly free from this so called cures threat, but with the viewer left with a faint sense of (is it over). So to my final point, what was the point of the opening scene of the gory disfigured leg of a the first victim) if this does not lead to the first boy passing on the curse, and the question of his knowledge of how and why the curse happens. Usually in horror films there is a explanatory scene of some ancient curse that erupts through some form teen messing around and triggering it. But no the film director decided lets leave it ambiguous, I mean this would be effective if there was even the slightest bit if implication as to why it happens. Perhaps a nod to a psychological explanation, portrayed in some form of sarcastic or ironic cause of events. But no, instead we have a film that drags on, left with some re occurring pot holes and ended with a rather weak wet towel. That said, go watch it if you want but then again save your 99p and buy yourself a pasty.

Next level teen horror
Verified purchase
If you remember teen slasher movies such as Scream, then simply turn up the sense of eery creepiness and suspense and turn down the reliance on outright gore, and you're getting close to how this movie is to watch. A genuinely sinister premise, extremely well executed - you'll definitely be drawn in to the horrifying circumstances this bunch of teenage friends find themselves in. Beautiful cinematography with dark, atmospheric scenes underscored with stillness and fear. Everything is just right in terms of scene setting modern American teen life in suburbs devoid of the glamour or self-indulgence of west coast life. Very highly recommended if you like or can live with the chills this genre of film can afford you in spades.

Innovative idea, neatly done...With reservations
Verified purchase
American Horror film cliche 101: teens have sex and are punished by a serial killer/ghost/monster/etc...It Follows pushes that idea to a clever and intriguing extreme in which sex, literally, invites consequence: a haunting transmitted like an STD. The special effects are applied sparingly making for real impact when they appear (so many films just smother them on in a big pile of 'who cares?') The central character isn't some squeaky-clean cipher, she makes morally ambiguous (and even horrible) choices, but she always retains empathy - it feels like it matters that she's under threat. It's also great that there's no attempt to turn her into the overused Sarah Connor/Eleanor Ripley kickass female lead either: she's an every-girl suburban teen under immense stress and in a situation she can barely control - her decisions feel realistic and all the more terrible for it. Meanwhile, 'the monster' is kept, wisely, away from the spotlight so it never becomes some kinda perverse star like so many movie monsters before - nor does it lose its edge. The final few minutes are subtle and grim all at once.

On the other hand, while the heroine and two male friends are well-drawn (and morally compromised), her two female friends lapse back into blank scream mode. And, really, after the initial chill has started to thaw, the film runs out of things to do with the idea and winds up with a run-of-the-mill 'monster killing' effort elevated only by some stark images. A lot of what actually happens, ultimately, is no different to the usual obstacle course run by characters with something on their tail - and the 'monster' isn't exactly complex, complicated or intriguing in and of itself...But those really are minor reservations. This is a taught, concise, intelligent, ambiguous film! A real 'what would you do?' experience.

Bleeding good film!
Verified purchase
We've certainly got enough nods to other horrors! - Carrie, Halloween, Zombie films (slow and implacable), Living Dead with it’s claustrophobia and of course 'The Thing'. Great finale as the pace suddenly ramps up after patient build. Imaginative and with a dreamlike feel - long drives, slow pans and sudden mayhem, a mashup of time (clothes, TVs, cars, gadgets) and but maybe a bit too much slow drivetime... and a wee bit of a final shot cliche! But definitely worth it.

Horrors fans will love it
Verified purchase
Brilliant! I’m a big horror fan and there’s very little horrors that are half decent these days. Always searching and find I turn most off.
I stumbled across this and thought I’d give it a try. Loved it. I knew it was good because I couldn’t sleep at night and kept looking out my window.

a chilling if somewhat acquired taste
Verified purchase
One of the only films that has ever truly unsettled me. Im a big horror fan, but sadly I could count on 1 hand the amount of horror films that have actually worked their full magic for me. This film is slow, brooding and ultimately unresolved, as a true horror should be imo.

If you are a fan of big bells and whistles, special effects, everything explained and run through like a pop-shop roller-coaster this is not the film for you. It is an oppressive, uncomfortable, awkward crawl through the dark that left me feeling all kinds of wrong for a good while after the credits had rolled.

Absolutely loved it, 5/5.
