It Follows 2015 - REVIEW


I figured I would see what all the hype is with It Follows.  Mostly heard mixed reviews but saw a few people who completely loved this film.  I decided to go into this one without reading a full review or a synopsis of the film.  Looked at the cast and hadn't heard of one of the actors in the film.  Oh well, lets give it a go.

It Follows starts off with the action right away.  A girl runs away from what seemingly is nothing and drives to the beach.  The next morning she is on her back dead in the sand.  We then go to Jay (Maika Monroe) who has a date with Hugh (Jake Weary), a guys she has been seeing.  They go to the movies and he keeps seeing someone following him so they leave,  Jay knew he was acting strange but goes out the next night with him and has sex in his car.  This is revealed he has now past the supernatural follower onto her.  Now she is being followed by a supernatural being that wants to kill her!!!

I wouldn't say I didn't like this film but I thought it moved a bit slow for my taste.  Not that I don't like a slow burn every now and again I just really couldn't get into this one fully.  I thought it did a good job of building suspense at times and there are a few moments when I was genuinely creeped out.  It Follows is very original and there is something to be said about that now a days.  The acting wasn't bad but wasn't anything to write home about.

To sum it up I would recommend a viewing of this.  Probably not worth buying it but on the other hand it's on sale for only  12.99 on blu ray just about everywhere.  I did see a few just downright bad reviews and I really don't agree.  I probably won't view it again anytime soon but really not a bad flick.  I would rate this one 6 out of 10 stars.  Stay twisted everyone!!
