A young woman runs out of her house in a Detroit suburb in the middle of the day, bare legged and wearing black high heels, screaming. The camera follows her and does a 180, showing us that there is nothing nearby, only a neighbor who asks if everything is okay. Still screaming, she gets in her car and drives away as the soundtrack blares some truly discordant and predatory music at high volume. We then learn what she was screaming about, but we have no answers. And so the movie grabs your attention and does not let go.

It Follows is one of the best horror films ever made, period. Since the mid nineteen-eighties, the vast majority of movies in the genre are more concerned with making you laugh or showing you how clever they are in re-configuring or poking fun at old tropes. It Follows is not that kind of picture.

The movie plays it 100% straight. It starts with the lead actress, Maika Monroe, who plays the main character as vulnerable and completely earnest. Her friends are like the average kids on your street, and they rally around her. It is all completely understandable, as you will not want to see her get harmed, either. The use of the camera, the score by Disasterpiece, and a mise-en-scene that deliberately never lets you in on exactly when the movie is supposed to take place give the entire affair a trance-inducing, dream-like quality.

That said, “It Follows” is not for everyone. The premise cannot be explained without inducing eye-rolls. There is very little actual gore, no real answers are forthcoming, and the nihilistic conclusion might leave you dissatisfied. But if your idea of great horror is an atmospheric sense of dread and paranoia, you cannot do better than this film.

Jay Height is a college student in Michigan. The first date with her new boyfriend Hugh goes well, expect he seems freaked out by a girl he describes but Jay can't see. The second date, they have sex in Hugh's car. Jay feels wonderful about it, but Hugh knocks her out right afterwards. She wakes up still in her underwear tied to a wheelchair with Hugh rambling about someone who will follow her. A nude woman approaches her and Hugh seems satisfied, releasing her from her bonds and unceremoniously dumping her in front of her house. Jay reports the incident and tries to forget about it, but at night, someone breaks into her house, changes form, and chases her. She knows it's something more than the ravings of a madman and resolves to seek him out to get more answers.

It Follows is a complex horror film that made a big splash last year when it was released into mainstream theaters. Its strengths are its unique world and the varied subjective meanings of the film. The world it builds is a combination of modern and retro. Brand new cars are seen everywhere, but Jay's friend Greg drives an 80's style station wagon that they drive around for most of the film. Jay's house seems stuck in the 70's with its dated style, old horror and sci-fi TV shows and movies on their very old fashioned black and white TV. The synthesized score created by Disasterpeace calls to mind past soundtracks like John Carpenter's Halloween and Charles Bernstein's Nightmare on Elm Street. All of this coupled with the artfully filmed Detroit backdrop makes for a film that creates its own time, similar to the Bates Motel television show.

Many people have speculated at the meaning of the film and the Follower.

The Steelbook looks really nice in person. Love the cover art. Blu-ray is the same as regular version. No digital copy code included.

Many horror films become classics because they transform the mundane into something terrifying. Ringing phones, camping in the woods, bathroom mirrors – any of these banalities could be the harbinger of a gruesome death. Into that fine tradition comes this film which successfully creates numerous nerve-wracking experiences from someone slowly walking.

On one hand it’s easy to go wild on the loaded premise to infer a variety of pointed ideas and grand-standing moralizing about young sex. So there is a decent academic backbone and intelligence to the feature as well. But besides being well-shot, nicely acted and coolly scored, the film is simply scary like few others ever are. Long moments of unsettling dread, creepy visuals, shocking apparitions - the movie nails its most important priority of being frighteningly tense. Unlike other pat horror films where the same rhythms of rest and attack are easily defined and observed, this film does a great job of imbuing even the dullest moments with a sense of danger. Nowhere is safe from this monster, as even the brightest and busiest places cannot offer shelter from its unrelenting attack.

A jaded viewer might gripe about some of the its logical fallacies and ambiguities, the subpar climax, and its low-budget effects. In fact, there’s ample room for a few more inspired moments which the filmmakers unfortunately overlooked, since the movie does feel like it could have easily been more than the final results. Yet while those weaknesses aren’t ideal, they barely detract from the overall experience of surviving this hellish ordeal. This movie’s freshly invented abomination shares some characteristics of a ghost or zombie, yet is so much more in its elegant design.

This movie is not 5-stars like a "2001" or "Raging Bull" is, but for its unsettling experience in the genre, it is definitely a modern masterpiece, sure to influence the direction of horror to come in the next generation.
