  • It Follows represents a compelling evolution in how studios and audiences can (and should) conceive of its monsters.

  • No question that the storytelling here is impressive; the story itself, however, is a bit thin.

  • It's a testament to how scary a movie It Follows is that for days after watching it, you walk around thinking up survival plans - should you hide, stay on the move forever, pass the haunting on to someone else?

  • Ultimately, rather than sex, what seems threatening here is impending adulthood in all its dimensions, and in its floaty, insubstantial way, It Follows catches some of the mingled excitement and terror of growing up.

  • It's a wildly fun conceit ... Mitchell's atmospheric rendering of It Follows gives the film a fanciful, otherworldly feel.

  • Good horror films rely on suspense and tension, and this one has both elements aplenty.

    Maybe I'm not refined enough to understand and enjoy this movie as there is only one word I can muster to describe what I just watched and that is .....Boring

    A movie that just makes you look over your shoulder why you are still watching, you stop and think is this real. Aside from the unnecessary adult theme this is a good movie, by far some of the best cinematography ever in a thriller. The acting is a bit engrossing sometimes, they did a good job in playing out this completely original story.

    While paying homage to the original horror films, It Follows keeps constant suspense, with heart pounding music ultimately delivering a chilling horror film. - Andrew Huynh

    Definitely a solid horror film in a time where we don't see a lot of quality in the genre. It has the feel of a 1970's horror movie and borrows a lot from movies such as Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween. Some of the acting may dip throughout the film, but the lead (Maika Monroe) has a great performance. A must-see for horror movie fans.
