One of the best horror films i've ever had the privilege of seeing. Such an original storyline with a great cast. Now days it just seems like all horror films are about the paranormal or exorcisms. There has been no originality until now. Even the score of this film was excellent! It reminded me a lot of Halloween, this film had a real John Carpenter 1980's feel to it. The cinematography in this film was very innovative. I had never seen camera angles in horror films like this before which really helped build the tension and suspense that this film has so much of. It's extremely hard to believe that this is David Robert Mitchell's (director) first piece of work with horror. I pray this director releases another horror film in the near future. Excellent modern day horror!

David Robert Mitchell's It Follows is the closest I'll get to seeing the gauzy, atmospheric, John Carpenter style horror films I grew up with on the big screen. It's a high concept, low budget, absolute masterpiece of a movie that gets under your skin and freezes your blood with eerie dread in the way that few films in the genre seem to do these days. In desolate, dreamy Detroit suburbia, a young girl (the haunting Maika Monroe) is assaulted and bound by a date after sleeping with him. He informs her he has passed along a curse to her, and that she will be followed. Not ran after, not scared by something jumping out of the closet, just simply followed, slowly... Deliberately... Relentlessly, until she passes it along to someone else. From the there the movie kicks into high gear as she and her sister along with their friends, played by superb young actors, giving their roles the fully realized attention and quirky dispositions to make us care about their plight, to figure out how to save herself. Many aspects together work to make this a wonder of a film: tight, fluid pacing, a gorgeous, thumping yet dreamy synth score that ratchets up the tension and sets a beautifully ambient, and at times overbearingly ominous tone, and a genuine love of the genre and movies themselves, implemented into making this the best, scariest and most engrossing horror movie in a decade.
It Follows is a horror film made for horror fans, and it's about time one of those came around again. This is a movie that was light on the jump scares, which is a delightful change of pace. In the past few years more and more horrors have relied on jump scares to make up for the true scariest part of any horror film, the sense of dread. Dread is felt in this movie almost immediately because it combines so well with the tone, another forgotten about ingredient in horrors. There is no real way to explain the plot of this film without it coming across like a more twisted game of "tag," which played a part in exactly how many people I could talk into seeing it after the mixed feelings from the trailer. That being said, the film breaks a lot of the norms set by today's "scary" films. This is a movie that knows what it's doing, and its main concern is to make the audience feel as if they are a part of the experience with the sense of realism. With the enemy being as far-fetched as it may come across in conversation, it's easy to get caught up in the surroundings of the characters looking for "it." Having to watch over the characters' shoulders throughout the movie makes it all the more frightening when something IS seen, and there's never a sense of safety. It Follows takes a good deal from the greats in the horror genre, namely Halloween. I recall a great deal of times thinking "wait, that was in Halloween," where the background is scarier than what could pop up out of the shadows with some loud sound surrounding it. The score in this movie is simply unnerving and remarkable. It adds to the tone and creates an even more frightening and uncomfortable feeling when "it" has appeared. It was as if I were watching a great Carpenter movie in the theater, and it's been a great while since such a possessing and haunting score has come along. It truly is like another character in the movie, but used so well it adds to already-present uneasy feeling that one has while watching. It Follows delivers where other recent horrors have failed, it creates memorable moments and characters which the audience feels for. Also unlike recent films, there is no way to predict what direction the movie will take, and there is finally not a completely predictable ending. Horror movies have taken easy ways out and desensitized the audience throughout by having things jump on screen which make the "big moments" feel insignificant and forgettable because audiences have been jumped at so much they just don't care anymore and they're ready to see "the monster die" (I'm oversimplifying of course, but the intent is clear). Meanwhile, this film has (quietly) some of the most memorable terrifying sequences of the decade thus far. Of course, I'd have a useless review if I didn't address the performances of It Follows. All of the other elements I've brought up in the review were almost created by, and greatly assisted by, the acting. If the acting is bad (which is a common thing in horrors), then it's hard to make anything else believable, which distances the audiences and takes away a lot of the sense of terror. The acting is so real by the cast that they make this plot seem genuine. They're not the usual teens that the audience can scream "why did they not think of.." or "I would've.." at. They address the horrifying situations as real people would, they're not magically filled with some convenient insight and they're not face-palmingly idiotic, either. In a year filled with soon-to-be many blockbusters and money makers, It Follows will be remembered by many as one of the best of the year. It is a film that embodies all things horror, and pays great homage to what made people adore the genre. Like a good brand of medication, without the side-effects, It Follows is what the genre needed and is, to me, one of the best horror films of the decade to this point. With all of the key ingredients in place, we've got a great film here. 9/10.
