Post-Horror Summer Nights

It Follows

Nominated for the Critics Week Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, the film follows Jay (Maika Monroe) who is pursued by a relentless, deadly force after a sexual encounter.

Undoubtedly one of the best horrors of the decade, It Follows continues to feel as fresh and original as the day it was released. Nothing chills the soul quite like the pounding of inevitability. It wants to consume and it will not stop. The only way to delay the inevitable and keep yourself safe, is to pass it on to another target through sexual intercourse.

From the opening sequence, the film invites you to question conventions and expect the unexpected. We watch a terrified, scantily clad young woman flee in terror, but here she is running in broad daylight from something we cannot see or hear. Like most of the best films of the genre, It Follows frightens the audience with both the horrors they can see, as well as the terrors they cannot.

Featuring an intro from David Church, author of ‘Post-Horror; Art, Genre, and Cultural Elevation'.
