"It Follows" Is Not Your Average Horror
Before we look at what she catches, you must first understand that "It Follows" is not your traditional horror film. This is one of those films that doesn't play so much on the gore of an event, as much as the fear of being chased.
It's a film that gets you emotionally charged, as you see the unseen which Jay wishes she'd never seen at all. Trust us, it will make sense after you watch it;)
"It Follows" tells the story of a young woman named Jay, who comes into contact with an unshakable force. It's unshakable because it's in her blood, yet it's only in her blood because she put it there.
So how'd she put it there you ask? Well, what do most teenage girls and boys do? If you said, "Play Scrabble" you have a lot to learn about today's youth.
Anyways.. as Jay(Maika Monroe) comes to terms with the horrible mistake she has just made, strange things start to happen in her life.
You know that weird feeling you get when you think something is watching you? Following you down a dark alley? Well, let's just say, since Jay has made "contact" her weird feelings have become a reality that could very well kill her and anyone she has ..contact with;)
"It Follows" could easily be a teen horror, but it's got enough action and suspense to keep even the biggest of kids(adults) entertained during your next movie night.
The Fear Is Real
Just imagine your worst fears materializing before your eyes every time you look to the left.
Now imagine those same fears coming back full force any and every time you look to your right.
Some people might think you were a little off your rocker if you broke into a sprint every 5 minutes, but if you're in Jay's position we would totally understand.
You see this presence, this entity that Jay has picked up isn't just following her...it wants to kill her! It wants to rip her limb from limb and neck to ear, it's all she can do to just survive the night..alive.
The interesting concept about Jay's disposition is that even though "It Follows" is a fictional horror, the fear of catching something lethal is all too real.
We say that to say this...If you're out having "contact" with this person and that person just know there's a good chance that something deadly can haunt you for the rest of your life.
After Watching, "It Follows"
We've got to say, we were entertained. This film is definitely one to watch on a Saturday night when you want a little horror without tons of gore.
"It Follows" isn't a film that will have you checking under the bed, but it is one that will make you think before you allow someone else to make "contact" with you;)
