Review of It Follows

I heard about this after seeing that it would be coming to my theater. This was automatically a must see because my theater hasn't played a horror movie in several years. I watched the trailer and was even more excited. I really enjoyed David Robert Mitchell's other film The Myth of the American Sleepover as well.

The premise is really interesting and quite original. This is a movie that actually really creeped me out. That never really happens to be honest which is great! The music seems like they didn't try too hard which is fine because it worked perfectly here. I'm glad that this wasn't a cluster of stupid death scenes. It actually builds a lot of tension and lets us get to know our main characters pretty well. I thought the actors/characters were all great and interesting.

Only one scene in the beginning is pretty brutal other than that it's mostly just an atmospherically creepy movie. It has a very arthouse style feel to it as there are several shots throughout of the scenery. There are even some points where it slowly zooms in on something. This even had a few moments that were kind of funny in an otherwise creepy movie. I thought the ending was well done although I'm sure some audience members might complain. I personally would find it not too difficult to come out with a sequel or two. The following titles being covered as It Follows Too and It Still Follows. I joke.

Pros:
-An original idea for a horror film
-A monster that isn't ridiculously over the top
-Atmospherically different than many horror
-Likeable actors/characters
-It was actually creepy and made me nervous
-There is room for more to the story

Cons:
-I guess the only one is that there is never an explanation to why, how, or what the creature is although in all honesty it doesn't even truly matter.

I really enjoyed this movie. It kept me glued to my seat from start to finish. I recommend if you think the horror genre is lacking originality that this should be on your "to watch" list.

I saw this the other day and was pretty impressed. It was original, wasn't full of cliche's like most horror films are. I thought the cinematography, score, acting and atmosphere was very well done. I think the only thing that I didn't understand was how "it" killed her friend. It looked like it was sucking his soul out while dry humping him to death lol. It was too quick.
