It Follows (2014)
Left open for interpretation...
To the extent of making very little sense. The editing is choppy and disjointed, making it really hard to get into and follow. It feels like there are important scenes that were intentionally excluded specifically to make the progression of events and actions more confusing. The rules were outlined but then it fails to follow them which makes the lack of explanation for the first victim and their place in the spread of the curse even more annoying. The characters are just as much cliche for moronic decisions as any other stupid teen in any other horror movie. The origin of the supernatural presence is brought up but never explored and no motives are ever even hinted at (this is honestly the most ridiculous aspect of the movie, why would a supernatural entity care at all about promiscuity to the extent that it would waste its time and energy stalking these people). There are a lot of inconsistencies and contradictions throughout and that isn't indicative of something so well written that it keeps you thinking and guessing when it's actually so poorly written that it requires the viewer to reach to make sense of it, to draw their own conclusions to fill in everything that was lacking.
I absolutely loved this movie! The way in which it was done could have gotten really old really fast but they pulled it off wonderfully and it added to the tension so well. From beginning to end, the story and execution really pull you in. The entire cast was great and John Cho, especially, was incredible.
