IT FOLLOWS meets FINAL DESTINATION for the snapchat generation. Makes up its own rules as it goes along and, while I’ve sat through much worse, this is still a real swing and a miss for the oft-reliable Blumhouse.
God this was fucking great. Ethan Embry is a chameleon of an actor - took me ages to realise this was the gawky GWAR fan from Empire Records. I’m a big fan of films that take a really familiar setup and run with it in their own way and this does it triumphantly. Beautiful shot and edited and a perfect running time for a film of this nature. Any film that gives special thanks to Fantomas and Melvins is ok in my book.
God damn the antagonist looked like Harvey Weinstein though.
A teenage boy struggles with his own homosexuality. Freddy Krueger turns up for a bit.
More 'Netflixploitation' and very dreary nonsense at that. There's no haunting, no characterisation of any kind, just uninspired nonsense regarding a deal with the devil. Whatever Happened To Rosemary's Baby Part II: She Went To Prep School And Bored Everyone To Death In The Process.
