But after a seemingly innocent sexual 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. (Filmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“David Robert Mitchell has clearly studied up on John Carpenter. But Mitchell has his own twisted gift for letting atmosphere help define character. It Follows creeps you out big-time (…) Rating: ??? (out of four)” Peter Travers: Rolling Stone 

“‘It Follows’ abides by a principle that few horror movies have the courage to embrace: The unknown is the unknown.” Stephen Holden: The New York Times 

“‘It Follows’ turns to eighties teen slashers of the ‘Halloween’ and ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ variety while elevating them to a more abstract plane, rendering the looming threat of adulthood in ominous terms.” Eric Kohn: IndieWire
