Trivia

The monstrous "It" is often said to be a metaphor for sexually transmitted diseases and sexual promiscuity. When asked about the film's concept, director David Robert Mitchell states, "The basic idea of being followed by something that looked like different people, that was very slow, and always coming came from a recurring nightmare I had when I was a kid. Later, as an adult, I added the sexual aspect of passing on this terrible thing. It came at two different points of my life." See more »

Quotes

Yara: 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.

Scary and disturbing
24 July 2014 | by 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.
