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 plaster cast on Jay's arm gets replaced with athletic wrapping tape for the pool scene towards the end of the movie. When she crawls out of the pool, she bends her "broken" wrist nearly ninety degrees, which the cast would have kept completely immobilized. The hard cast returns for later scenes. See more »
When I was a little girl my parents would not allow me to go south of 8th mile. And I did not even know what that meant until I got a little older. And I started realizing that. That was where the city started and the suburbs ended. And I used to think about how shitty and weird was that. I mean I had to ask permission to go to the state fair with my best friend and her parents only because it was a few blocks past the border.

return of the real horror
Finally a real horror in a long time! No more bloody, slasher crap. This is how the really scary movies were made. Suspense and fear are created by great cinematography and music.
The pace of the movie is slow and almost no to few special effects are present. I surely hope that this movie hails the return of the great horror genre: we are scared of the unknown and not violence for the sake of it.
All the young actors are promising, they really pulled it off. Kudos to the director who also wrote the script, I am looking forward to his next movie.
Go see it, you won't regret it!
