Tag: IT FOLLOWS
The quicker we dispel It Follows of its “STD Horror film” tagline, the better. I found it impossible to take the horror at face value, and typically I can pinpoint it. But here the “IT” seemed to resemble a plethora of fears, and appropriately, it’s a shapeshifter after all.
It Follows has become the most talked about horror film of the season thanks to rave reviews and a ridiculous amount of press from not only genre outlets but mainstream ones as well. With so much hype surrounding it, I deemed it necessary to drop everything and see it as soon as possible. As I left the theater, I couldn’t shake the feeling that while what I saw was both engaging and thought-provoking it still somehow missed the mark of true terror.
