It Follows (2014)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
This is a good movie. No, wait, a very good movie. At a time where it seemed like a remake was being churned out left, right and center, It Follows managed to come through with something original when the genre was yearning for it. There are some chilling moments in the film and while the movie is always engaging, there are a few moments toward the end to the film where the movie started to drag out a little bit to the point where I feel the ending could have had a little more impact.

However, that is only a small squabble on an otherwise unique horror movie which boasts some suspenseful scares.
It Follows (2014)
Review by Michael Mahoney

8 / 10
Something of a modern-day classic, It Follows is certainly a memorable movie with plenty of creepy scenes, even if there's something to be desired insofar as the origin of the 'it' is concerned.

There's not too many performances here that really stand out one way or the other. Most of the main actors and actresses do just fine (such as Lili Sepe, Maika Monroe, and Keir Gilchrist), but didn't really blow me away. Gilchrist, on a side-note, later starred in 2015's Dark Summer, a somewhat disappointing film overall, but not altogether terrible. It was Olivia Luccardi's performance I enjoyed the most, though I kept hoping for a bit more from her character.

Which leads to the crux of my problem with the film, which is that we never learn what exactly the entity that 'follows' is. Not only do we not learn what the entity is, but more problematic, none of the characters even come up with any ideas, nor seem to care. Luccardi's character was a reader, and the first time I saw this, I kept hoping that she'd eventually run into something that matched this creature's modus operandi, but we got nothing.

If you can get past that, and I by-and-large can, you have a pretty enjoyable and occasionally rather creepy film. Some of the music used worked quite well, creating an uneasy atmosphere, and given that the being here is invisible to most people, there are some decently subtle scares here also, and at times, the film feels pleasantly disorienting.

Overall, It Follows is a solid film, probably an easy top ten movie in 2014, but having seen it twice, it's not a movie I necessarily love. I enjoy the film quite a bit, and if a sequel deigns to explore the background of the malevolent entity, I'd be all in. As far as this one goes, the film's good, but I need more information to fully sate me. 7.5/10 (rounded up to 8/10 to fit site's format).
It Follows (2014)
Review by Alex Martel

7 / 10
I wished I liked "It Follows" a little bit more that I do. I loved the first two thirds of it. It's a wildly original and scary concept that breathed new life in a tired genre, and mostly got put to good use.

Unfortunately, the last third runs out of steam and bite, and I couldn't help but question the reasoning behind the way our main characters though they could destroy "It". Maybe the point was that child like innocence was the way to conquer what is essentially a sexual transmitted supernatural killer, but it doesn't quite come across with the "rules" that the film established previously. So for a portion of the film, I was angry at a bunch of idiots who put themselves in danger for a scheme that obviously wasn't going to work.

Still, this is a very good movie that you should watch, as with any new horror IP that actually makes an effort.
