For nineteen-year-old Jay, Autumn should be about school, boys and week-ends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her friends must find a way to escape the horrors, that seem to be only a few steps behind.Written by
The dilapidated house that Hugh hid out in, and that Jay and her friends explored, is a house style called the American Foursquare. This style was popular from the 1890s through the 1930s. Many floor plans for the foursquare feature "circular" traffic patters, where one can proceed through several rooms and return to the starting point without ever reversing the path: kitchen, vestibule, living room, dining room, and kitchen, for instance. In some homes, adjoining bedrooms shared closets and bathrooms. This kind of "fluid" floor plan would make this style of house particularly desirable if an escape from "It" was needed. See more »
Near the end of the film, Paul fires a small handgun several times and hits the 'follower' in the head, knocks him out. The scene clearly reveals that bullets hit the pool surface at an approximate angle of 30 degrees, and judging by the actors' height, bullets travel at least 9-10 feet in the water before they hit the target. It would be impossible for those bullets, that are fired at an extreme angle, to wound someone after traveling so far in the water. In fact, MythBusters did an episode investigating the effects of guns fired at targets that are underwater, they proved the water provides protection. See more »

Over 300 reviews, high score and meta-score in a 2 million budget film, that alone should make you watch it. This movie shows a great idea, very simple and elegant, for a horror movie, of course. And it's all around good, well played, good sound effects, more suspense, less gore, it has all the elements you expect in a horror movie, and at the same time it is not cliché. The real highlight here is the director, this movie is exceptionally well directed, I mean frames and shot composition makes the movie jump from the screen. If you like horror and not gore movies, watch it. Yes, the movie is a bit slow at first, but it didn't bored me at all.
