It Follows

Horror Thriller


 

A young woman is relentlessly pursued by an evil curse after having sex with someone.

What stands out in this film, and what will stay with you the longest, is the soundtrack. The otherworldly, ethereal, 80's synth soundscape creates an incredible dynamic to the drab suburbia world the characters inhabit. It adds tremendous strength to the story itself, which fully encompasses an overbearing fear of the unknown. Anyone and anything is a threat. This psychological terror, never fully explained, evokes feelings of paranoia, which continue to follow you as you exit the cinema. It, Entertains.
