It Follows is a good-looking low-budget supernatural coming-of-age horror film that develops some interesting subplots which might, at first glance, be easily overlooked or under appreciated. Simply put, a malicious supernatural entity incessantly follows its victims until it either kills them, or the victim transfers the curse to another through sexual contact. Played out among a group of teenage friends, It Follows is a frightening moral dilemma. Most interestingly is the relationship between Jay, a female Michigan college student, and her young male acquaintances who offer to help her out of her predicament (Klaus Ming October 2015).
