    It Follows 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 May, 2015 2

    It will follow you. It will watch you. It will chase after you without even running. It will hunt you down until it kills you.

    If you're a horror enthusiast, those lines may have reminded you of your typical horror flick; ala Michael Myers or Jason Vorheese led pictures.
