Synopsis 5 stars out of 5 -- [O]ne of the most fearsomely original chillers of recent times...4 stars out of 5 -- A first-rate horror movie....[IT FOLLOWS] has a refreshing, unpretentious sense that a meaningful subtext doesn’t undercut spookiness.[A] smart, relentlessly chilling thriller that opts for originality over cheaply rejiggered jolts.3 stars out of 4 -- IT FOLLOWS creeps you out big-time in that cool way that freezes the blood.IT FOLLOWS is more than just an expertly calibrated scream machine....The film twists the itchy melancholia of coming-of-age cinema into something more fatalistic.3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A]n unsettling, and deservedly celebrated new horror film....IT FOLLOWS both prolongs and heightens the potency of high school-age fears until they appear to be ancient existential terrors.Its acclaim derives from its masterly manipulation of mood by its cinematographer, Michael Gioulakis. The deadly menace, which seems to emerge from your peripheral vision...IT FOLLOWS sets us up for all of the tired teen-body-count-flick tropes, and then spends the next hour and a half subverting them with wit, style, and an almost suffocating sense of dread. -- Grade: A-3 stars out of 4 -- The mood is somber, ominous and increasingly suspenseful throughout, goosed along by an intense John Carpenter-esque electronic music score...A sexually transmitted haunting plagues a Detroit teenager in this stylized horror film from director David Robert Mitchell (THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER). In the wake of sleeping with a handsome stranger, Jay (Maika Monroe) quickly learns that she has inherited a most unusual curse: Wherever she goes, lumbering, half-naked phantoms follow, and their singular goal is to see her dead. Desperate, Jay turns to her younger sister and loyal circle of friends to for help. In time, however, Jay learns that her only hope for escaping death is to sleep with someone else, and pass the curse on. But the pursuing phantoms are invisible to Jay's friends and it soon becomes apparent that her time is running out. Now, with death closing in, the terrified young woman will be forced to make a difficult decision if she hopes to survive her terrifying ordeal.
