It's a game I'd be happy to play again.

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.

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

"It Follows" is the creepiest movie in years.
March 27, 2015
Less a conventional scary horror film than a fitful, disturbing dream, It Follows is all about atmosphere, with an unsettling soundscape and dislocating widescreen imagery.

It Follows manages to bend the rules of fateful juvenile sexuality, and does so in a manner that genuinely tingles the spine and disturbs the mind.

It's hard not to share Jay's mounting panic as she watches the thing in its various guises walking slowly toward her wherever she may be, invisible to everyone else and entirely intent on destroying her.

The matters of sex and lost innocence work like a thematic undertow, pulling the characters down into the dark, psychological depths.

Promises more than it delivers, but engrossing throughout.

It's about many things, but dread infuses them all. You won't be grossed out. You'll be creeped out. And that's a lot more satisfying.

Most of it evokes the attacks on lust that flourished in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and The Birds and that were rampant in the high school nightmare movies of the 1970s and 1980s.

Mitchell's skills in crafting mood and building tension result in one of the most mesmerizing and suspenseful horror movies to come along in a long time.

Follows is an effective pastiche but a studied one; by the end, even its ambiguities feel overdetermined.

Where most teen horror movies revel in the peer group splintering and getting slaughtered, this one is more interested in how people gather around a loved one and shield her from harm.
