Storyline

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 Jose Tamayo

User Reviews

 
A film which you can't leave behind
22 March 2015 | by b-connalSee all my reviews

A simple but clever premise which draws upon horror traditions, especially the work of John Carpenter, is sustained throughout the movie to produce a memorable and tense 100 minutes.

The subject of sex, sexuality, disease, the transition into adulthood (you sense the director believes too early transition) and relationships between friends and family are played out against the backdrop of a once great Detroit. The films opening scenes summarise the movie perfectly and convey the central themes of the movie expertly.

Essentially a horror movie with a strong idea and 'conservative' message its strength lies in the realistic portrayal of teenagers, their relationships and what they think is the right thing to do faced with the horror that faces them and to an extent cannot escape.
