A young, scantily-clad girl runs out of her suburban home into the street. She's terrified and panicking, desperately trying to escape from some unseen menace. It's a scenario familiar to anyone with a passing knowledge of the horror genre. But the framing, the elegant camera moves, and the chilly sense of distance immediately set It Follows apart from it its predecessors.

Starting off strong before losing its way in the end... stylish, suspenseful chille.

Recycles familiar teenage horror tropes - a girl alone in a house, evil forces banging on a door - but its mood is dreamy. Seldom do you feel manipulated by exploitative formulas.

A modern classic of fear to be compared to something by a young Carpenter or De Palma.
