Sex can be a terrifying part of life to others it’s literally taboo, in the UK trailer for David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows will haunt our visions of intimacy and we should fear the repercussions of sex.
On the eve of Sundance Film Festival(which we’re reviewing the film at) the trailer delivers an well crafted trailer that eerie, well executed and that it’s refreshing when the rule book is ripped up end results can be excitingly nightmarish.
Starring The Guest‘s Maika Monroe, It Follows sees Jay a 19 year old whom after an innocent sexual encounter she senses something isn’t right. She soon discovers something or someone terrible is following her, is it real or is it malevolent? She teams up with her friends to attempts to try and find ways escape the traumatising horrors only to find the source of the problem is beyond their control.
Very few films live up to the buzz especially when the film is a horror flick.It seems the winning formula is to go down the psychological route, just look at the brilliant The Babadook, like that film this may deliver a cautionary message amongst the young, free and single fraternity. Be careful my friends! It Follows looks creepy, atmospheric and if you adore the recent trend of films paying homage to 1980s this one will go down a treat.
It Follows is due for a 27th February UK&Irish cinematic release however if your feet are so itchy you can catch the film at Glasgow Film Festival when it plays 20th/21st Febraury. The film also co-stars Linda Boston, Caitlin Burt, Heather Fairbanks, Keir Gilchrist, Lili Sepe, Jake Weary, and Daniel Zovatto.
