Young Jay (Maika Monroe) has consensual sex with a stranger, Hugh (Jake Weary), on the backseat of his car ... then he ties her up, tells her he has infected her with a curse and that from now on she will be followed by a slow-walking being that can take the form of any human, who will try to kill her ... unless she passes the curse on to someone else via sexual intercourse. However, if that person is killed, the curse falls back on her.

At first, Jay doesn't believe into that curse at all, but the experience was traumatic enough that she asks her best friends to stay with her for the night ... but then she has to find out that "it" is apparently really following her and trying to get into the house, which causes her to make a hasty escape.

Jay and her friends escape to a cabin in the middle of nowhere, but it follows, tries to make its way into the cabin, and actually manages to injure Jay. In the hospital, Jay has sex with her best friend Greg (Daniel Zovatto), who's less than sure he believes into the curse, but would be lying if he'd denie he wanted to have sex with her for a long time.

Three weeks later, it seems that the curse has been lifted, Jay hasn't been followed anymore, and Greg says he hasn't either ... then one day he's killed by whatever-it-is, appearing as his own mother. Jay makes an escape and has sex with a random stranger to buy some time ... but it returns, and when she and her friends try to destroy it in a public pool at night, that almost backfires.

It's only when Jay's best friend Paul (Keir Gilchrist), who has suffered through all of this because he's secretly in love with her, offers to have sex with her to help her take care of her problem that she finds hope once again ...


It Follows has a great, original and truly haunting premise, it features some very creepy scenes, and is carried by a great central performance by Maika Monroe - which all makes it a pretty good horror film that falls a bit short of being great by a handful of scenes that just haven't been thought through, like when Jay makes her first hasty escape by car, why does she stop eventually to sit down on a swing. Another time she makes an escape she then gets out of the car to sleep on the car's hood in the open. Also the scene in the public pool fails to make sense at all, as the plan seems to absolutely moronic and without any failsaves that it doesn't really compute.

All that said, it's still pretty good, and something vastly different from your usual teen-slasher - but it's also a film that makes it easy to nitpick ...
