It Follows (2015) Synopsis:

A young girl is the victim of a curse involving a strange entity who slowly but endlessly pursues her wherever she goes.

It Follows (2015) Review:

The concept of It Follows is extremely simple, but sometimes that is just what is needed to make a brilliant horror movie. The flick is about that curse which takes the shape of a person that only the victim can see, and that follows her by walking slowly without ever stopping, eating or sleeping. If that person touches its victim, the latter die. That person can take many appearances, including relatives, but is invariably slow paced.

Whereas this may sound overly simple, it is damn efficient. The inevitability of the entity coming at his victim is creating huge stress throughout all film. You keep expecting “It” to appear at every minute and every corner and the movie cleverly plays on that to build unbearable stress, something that will make you hold your breath for all movie.

Because the curse is transmitted via sexual relation, the movie even allows itself to have a meaning, using the curse as to metaphor to cleverly approach the topic of teen sex and virginity.

Anticipation has never been pushed that far. The tension is huge and the movie terrifying. In quite a few aspects (the curse, the inevitability of it all), It Follows reminds of other curse movies such as The Ring, The Grudge or One Missed Call. I would even say dare saying that It Follows is somehow scarier than any of those ones. To be honest, I haven’t been that mentally shocked and exhausted by a movie since the release of The Conjuringabout a year ago.

To me, and probably many others in the cinema room with me, this movie came as an instant classic, one that will leave its mark in horror cinema, and so far the best horror release of the year.
