Critic Reviews for It Follows
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.
Audience Reviews for It Follows
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
It is a pleasure to see a terrifying horror movie that invests in a nightmarish atmosphere of tension with moments of suspenseful anticipation, an excellent electronic score and an efficient camerawork that makes the best use of zooms and pan shots.
Horror, or fear perhaps, distilled. It doesn't take much. Take many of the known ideas about the genre and cut away the fat, that's all. Less equals more. "What in God's name does it want?" That's a question for later, buddy. Good stuff.
