Scary and disturbing
24 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'It follows', a Dave Mitchell feature presented at Cannes, is a truly disturbing movie that starts from a very simple premise.

Teenager Jay lives in a nameless Midwest town, and one day someone 'passes' 'it' to her. And then the following begins...

The very first scene caught me completely by surprise on how disturbing it was, and sets the bar high on this movie, showing that the director has no remorse in punching below the belt - and you will thank him for that by the time credits roll.

The movie makes an incredibly savvy use of sound, which is almost a character on its own, as well as the desolate settings shot in Detroit.

Actors give an understated performance that is even stronger, given how horrific is everything that is going on. And the followers... when I got home I had to make sure that there were at least two doors open in my room!

Make yourself a favor and go and see this, it is a fantastic summer scare.
