It Follows (2014)


The hype for It Follows over the past year or so has at times been somewhat overblown – the saviour of modern horror this is not – but some of it is at least deserved. With cinematography that takes its cues from the voyeurism of John Carpenter’s Halloween and a similarly evocative soundtrack, It Follows tracks a group of teens as one of them becomes haunted by, well, ‘it’, after sleeping with a mysterious guy. Playing on timeless adolescent fears about encroaching adulthood and sexual awakening, It Follows is both a good pure-scares horror and an affecting look at the fears of growing up.
