I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't give up
For 19-year-old Jay, fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent physical encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her teenage friends must find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind.
I now present you with John Carpenter's The Spectacular Now!
It's out there. It will find you. It doesn't have to run or jog. It walks at a steady pace. It might change the way it looks. It's relentless. It's brutal. It will follow you, until it fuckin' kills you. Sounds like fun, right? For Jay Height, played by Maika Monroe, her personal hell starts after a consensual sexual encounter turns nightmarish, and what comes next might be the beginning of a new era in modern horror. Written and directed by David Robert Mitchell; It Follows is a game changer that doesn't rely on jump scares, a high body count, or buckets of blood. It does its own thing, and that's something I think is intelligent and worthy of strong…
It Follows. But what is It? Is it an embodiment of your guilt? Is it a reflection of your emptiness? Is it a representation of all that is lustful, desirous and odious within one's soul? A fleeting moment of passion, a momentary drive of heedlessness that can inflict, ail and haunt you for life. So, is it a realization of one's own regret caused by sexual waywardness? Does it follow only if the intercourse is driven by lust and is fit to be termed frivolous or does it follow even if the physical congression had a great sense of sincerity, yearning and love behind it? Why does it take forms of people who you know, people who love you? Is…
After watching this, I went out and bought myself a purity ring.
I want to start off by saying how incredible the soundtrack is. It does such a phenomenal job at setting the mood and tone for this film. Its seriously one of the best soundtracks in a film I've ever heard. It had me mesmerized during the whole film.
It Follows isn't your typical recycled, been there done that horror film. It's a film that is genuinely creepy as hell and filled with suspense. The film doesn't rely on jump scares to make the audience scared (although there is one or two), the audience is scared because the director created such an atmosphere. It Follows is such a beautiful…
Film #3 of the "Scavenger Hunt #4" Challenge!
Task #3 : Film featuring a curse!
A film that took a totally unique direction in the horror genre that admittedly deserves praise! However it is not deserving of the rampant adulation and capitulation gone completely unchecked by the masses that is currently trending online!
More psychological thriller than your typical horror flick! "It Follows" originality definitely made a strong impression but it never quite reached the level of greatness required to be considered a masterpiece because other components of the film were sadly lacking! It's pretty much a one trick pony but oh what a glorious one trick pony it is!
Visionary in its storytelling, unique in its concept, insanely confident, and completely astonishing from the first frame to the last; David Robert Mitchell's It Follows is a glorious treasure of the horror genre, crafting a spellbinding story full of character and style while never (not even for a second) skimping out on an inch of atmosphere and increasingly foreboding dread.
The story of It Follows involves Jay (expertly played by Maika Monroe), a young girl who after a innocent sexual encounter, is followed by an unknown force. Knowing anything more than that is almost a sin, as David Robert Mitchell crafts surprise and horror like nobody's business. The simple tale, written by Mitchell, is a masterclass in both developing character…
Pretty OK, but overhyped. Nothing particularly scary, except for the streets of inner-city Detroit.
Such a great suspense / horror film! I love the 70's / 80's vibe throughout. I love that it respects the audience and does not feel the need to explain every last detail. In fact, the title tells you all you really need to know: it follows. Just a great little film, well worth the watch.
I'm not a horror fan, so don't trust me. But...
I wanted more math. I wasn't scared by out-of-place zombies representing "it," as opposed to, say, unexpectedly fitting extras. But a lot of interesting rules to chew on.
Originele horrorfilm die verre van perfect is, maar me wel ruim anderhalf uur wist te boeien.
Ponian "I Follow Rivers (The Magician Remix) " en los creditos finales. Y pimba, 4 estrellas.
This is the fourth time I've seen this film this year alone, and I'll bet money that it's not the last time. I'm definitely going to watch it again around October.
The movie is eerie, slow and filled with homages. It's beautifully constructed and shot. This movie is going to last.
The mad genius of this film is how it forces every person who watches it to imagine how they might sleep with a bunch of prostitutes or join a swinger's club just to get rid of this sexually transmitted demon.
I would've given this 4 stars but I was on a film festival panel with one of the producers and I didn't like how he answered some of the questions.
I'm becoming celibate.
IT FOLLOWS is a genuinely terrifying horror film. As the film opens we see a girl leave her house running around the neighborhood in fear. What is she running from? We don't see it. She runs back in the house gets the car keys and just starts driving. She ends up at a beach and she makes some farewell calls to her family. Flash forward to the next morning and we see the girl dead with her body contorted and her legs broken. The main character of the story is Jay (Maika Monroe) who is a 19 year old girl in college. She meets this guy and the two have sex. He then chloroforms her and she wakes up handcuffed…
