With the help of her friends, Jay tries to evade this entity; however no matter what she does or where she goes, it follows.
The plot to It Follows was definitely intriguing. While the story has very little explanation in its back-story, this drawback actually benefited the overall plot by strengthening the mystery tone which added to overall tension to the movie.Though the movie was an hour and forty minutes, the pacing to the film was long. This was not to say a bad thing as so many horror films go by quickly. However there were times where the plot would drag on; particularly during the end of the film. In the end, It Follow's plot does hold true to many horror plot elements; but rather then coming off as generic, the story uses these traits to the best of their abilities making this spooky tale very engaging.
It is safe to say that It Follows is a solid horror film. While it does has some issues in its execution, the movie makes up for it in a variety of areas. The film comes off as unique by taking elements from a variety of horror films. It Follows is to say the least refreshing and; after watching the film you will definitely be watching or back-because you never know what could be following.
