Argh! I still haven’t seen It Follows, the critically acclaimed horror festival darling that all of my friends are raving about. This movie, from director David Robert Mitchell, looks fucking awesome and I’m hearing that it lives up to the hype in a big way. If you’re not familiar with it, I suggest you check out the first trailer, the international trailer and the second international trailer while you’re at it. Then read Perri’s review for good measure. Done? If you’re a horror fan and you’re not excited it’s time to turn in your card.
Check out the It Follows TV spot below. The film stars Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, and Lili Sepe. It arrives in theaters on March 13th.
Here’s the official synopsis of It Follows:
As 19-year-old Jay’s summer—spent hanging with friends, lounging in a backyard pool—nears an end, her unperturbed suburban existence is about to be horrifyingly upended. After sleeping with a new boyfriend, she’s suddenly pursued, slowly but persistently, by a malevolent supernatural presence that takes the form of different people. Hoping to buy time and devise a plan, Jay and her friends escape to a beach house. But it’s coming.
