> An innovative horror-drama with a simplicity.
It was not too long ago I saw the director’s other film, his first one and liked it instantly. I did not expect him to go all the way from a beautiful teen drama to a creepy horror flick. But I liked this movie as well, thus that prove he’s not a fluke. After seeing his both the films, I can detect the style of presentation that marks his trademark. That is very realistic, dull, but a natural societal atmosphere with a mere background score.
I have said many times that these days horror flicks are heavily leaning on the scary noise/sounds. But this film brings the tone that’s really happening around us. The story was like a straight flowing river, no twists or turns like the Amazon river. Even it did not try to hide the existence of the evil spirit. Not only from us, but among the characters in the story. That means it is a very simple tale with the compelling scenes.
It does not look like a cheap horror, this 2 million movie can stand up to any fancy horror flicks. The writer/director’s interpretation was very interesting too. Like he said IT could board a plane to follow who he’s after. The theme was also very innovative. Quite similar types have made out, but this one was way better. Yep, many movie goers overwhelmed by the unexpected, even the filmmakers for the response.
Now I pray for if there is going to be a sequel, it must be made by the same writer/director. My worry is the B category filmmakers going to spoil the original in the name of follow-up. I highly recommend this movie, especially for adults due to the plot that develops on the sexual intercourse. Though there’s no strong nudity. I also suggest you to watch at night, if possible alone. I won’t guarantee that it would scare out of you, but that’s the best way to watch any horror flick.
I wanted more by the end, but that’s not to say ‘It Follows’ isn’t a very, very good film – it is.
I adore the look of the film, the cinematography is superb; the score is nice too. Maika Monroe leads a solid cast excellently. The premise is certainly interesting and it does create suitable tension, while the effects used are neat. The plot is quite sexual, potentially overly so in a couple of moments but in truth it needs to be for the most part. I would’ve, elsewhere, appreciated a deeper dive into the antagonists, also.
I could see a sequel coming from this, it’s the sorta concept that could easily produce many sequels. I’d be fine with just the one, but would watch another – it must keep the same vibe though.
An Advanced Teenage Horror Film: Expertly-Crafted, Psycho-Sexual Drama
David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows cannily takes the torrential world of the contemporary American teenager and uses it to bring the horror film back to its visceral roots—those dirty little tendrils that obscure the collective fears of our modern society. Today’s teenagers live in a bigger, more accessible world — a world in which the idea of the masked bogeyman lurking in the backseat has become clichéd to the point of being used as a Geico commercial. This is a truth that Mitchell understands completely, and his dissection of the paranoia and emotional detachment that plagues our suburbs is the genesis of this fresh interpretation of the horror genre. Following a sexual encounter with an older man, Jay (Maika Monroe) finds that she is being followed by a malevolent entity that will only leave her alone if she sleeps with someone else. This terrifying scenario throws Jay and her friends into a nightmarish game of trying to keep one step ahead of the relentless creature. Cinematographer Michael Gioulakis captures the unyielding dread that permeates the narrative with wide shots that evoke the eerie perspective of a hunter stalking its prey. It Follows feels like a natural progression of the teenage horror film—one that uses the complexity of today’s young people as a canvas for some expertly-crafted, psycho-sexual drama.
Innovative horror that gets deep under the skin
Jay (Maika Monroe) is a young, attractive girl coming-of-age who lives in the suburbs and, like pretty much every other young person, is finding out who she is through trial, through error, and with her friends for company. She is seeing a guy, Hugh, who acts a little odd sometimes but otherwise seems nice and trustworthy so one night she consents to his advances and they share an awkward but intimate moment in the back of his car. However, her post-coital bliss is cut short when Hugh inexplicably chloroforms her. She wakes up tied to a wheelchair in a derelict building where Hugh is rambling an apology about how he is doing this to her to show her that it’s real, that it sometimes takes the form of someone you love to mess with you, and that she has to sleep with someone to pass on the curse. She is convinced he is mad until she sees “it”.
The rest of the film sees “it” stalking Jay. Fortunately, she is able to demonstrate the reality of “it” to her friends who band together around her, without the help from any adult authority, as they try to understand the nature of this thing and how they can help her friend given her reluctance to merely pass it along by sleeping with another poor unsuspecting horny teen.
Honestly, the culmination of the first act of the film, in the derelict building, came as a complete surprise: the scene showed me a fresh vision of horror which was genuinely scary and discomforting despite my jaded tastes. The slowness of the preceding scenes matured into a crushing, intense uncertainty when I realised that it wasn’t what I expected from a horror and felt, for the first time in a long while, a sense of not knowing what I was watching.
The rest of the movie doesn’t quite live up to this chilling reveal. To be frank, I can’t think of how it could. Rather, the themes and references that led to the reveal are unpacked to flesh out the film’s universe. We see multiple scenes of urban decay and adult authority figures are conspicuous by their absence. In addition, the refreshingly natural colour palette (not that grungy green which seems to characterise most horror movies these days) and a creepy score create a palpable sense of alienation and loneliness which mirrors the characters’ confusion as they attempt to battle this malevolent force in the middle of the standard sexual and identity confusions of youth.
What’s more, as the film progresses we realise that despite being set in the present the cars, TVs, and clothes seem to be imported in from the 80s. At first incongruous, as the film progresses I saw that these choices could be seen as an homage to the slasher movies of the late 70s/early 80s, especially John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’, with their subtexts of the dangers of unsupervised teenagers having sex which is clearly much of what ‘It Follows’ is concerned with. The result is a film which appears bold and fresh, but under closer examination reveals a fertile heritage of horror which it gains much from drawing upon and referring to throughout the runtime. However, all this is so artfully executed and to such a great effect that a familiarity with this lineage is not required and, moreover, the film still has much to offer those that are.
As it seems to be the case these days, horror movies without the tiresome jump-scares or which don’t regurgitate haunted houses, creepy kids, or possessed girls get a lot of abuse from certain sections of the horror audience. If you like those tropes, avoid ‘It Follows’. If you like fresh, daring, and thoughtful horror which lingers long after the film ends, watch it. Now!
