It Follows

Heralded American indie horror sees 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe) develop a highly unusual affliction after a sexual encounter with Hugh (Jake Weary). Jay’s date explains that she is now being pursued by a being that can take human shape, though remains invisible to the uninfected. Following her - one relentless step at a time - it won’t stop until it catches Jay or she passes the curse on to someone else.

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

A horror film that will haunt your waking hours for weeks. Every frame of It Follows is stamped with nameless dread.

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.

Mitchell's deft handling of relationships gets threaded into an ingenious and exceedingly skillful creepshow.

A smart, relentlessly chilling thriller that opts for originality over cheaply rejiggered jolts.

Canny manipulation of tone, atmosphere and tension makes this a satisfying little horror movie.

Surreal and Super Scary!

An absolute work of art. I'm an old timer when it comes to horror films (been watching them avidly for nearly half a century) so it takes a lot to scare me. Well, I was nearly jumping out of my seat. This movie will stay with you long after you leave the cinema. I woke up the next morning still thinking about it. This is one of those movies where everything...

Strange... and not in a good way!

Really odd premise, having said that the film delivered on the scary front with a few jumps and unexpected surprises. Very creepy and odd, but not a horror movie that sticks out in my mind. I love horrors and was probably a bit deflated after seeing this as I had higher expectations. Worth watching but perhaps wait for it to come out on DVD

I'm very frightened

and that's a good thing. Leaves you on the edge of your seat the entire way through, filling you with horrific sense of dread, unable to trust anything you see. Basically it's a really smart and scary horror (super impressive considering the scale and budget) that is well worth seeing. I'm very scared.

Safe sex

An interesting lesson on safe sex but many flaws are descernable.

Damn fine 'under your skin' horror

I welcome this new STI horror sub-genre with open, unprotected arms. It Follows discovers and delivers a fresh concept that film festival freaks burrow through the soil for, executing a stirring amount of ‘that thing in the distance’ tension complemented by some of the best sound design work I’ve heard on a low-budget production. The soundtrack from...

It Follows

One of the creepiest, most unnerving horror films in recent years. It Follows is bound to divide general audiences, but I freaking loved it. The monster is a sexually transmitted disease. The effects are paranoia and eternally being followed by a terrifying supernatural force. The only cure is to pass it on by having sex with someone else. It's a simple yet...
