It Follows (2014)


Synopsis: A young woman is followed by an unknown supernatural force after a sexual encounter.

Review: my last review is mentioned to be one of the best American horror movies in the last 20 years; so I decided to post one I thought actually deserving of the title. The premise of the movie is that there is some kind of supernatural force (never explained) that tracks down and kills the person that is cursed. The only way to bide time is to sleep with someone else and passing the curse onto the next person’ essentially making it a supernatural STD. Once the force kills the most recent person, it will then move onto the person that previously passed the curse. The movie itself; while being original and fairly fast paced’ isn’t without its flaws. Most notably amongst the flaws is that the force just seems to appear and slowly ramble over to the person like an old school zombie’ then somehow over the course of the movie it develops the ability to pick up and throw things. While only the cursed can see the apparition walking, it can attack others that pose as a threat’ and I use that term loosely because nothing really seems to be able to stop the force.

My scores:
Language: 2/10
Nudity 4/10
Originality: 8/10
Should you watch?: 8/10

I’m not a huge fan of a lot of modern American horror movies because they all seem to rely on jump scares without any real substance, but this one I highly recommend.
