For 19-year-old Jay, fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her.

"Writer-director David Robert Mitchell's debut, The Myth of the American Sleepover, was a gentle depiction of adolescence in the Michigan suburbs as a time of inchoate yearnings and fading innocence. He returns to that territory with the same sensitivity in It Follows, only this time the danger is far more malevolent than just plain old emotional vulnerability. Creepy, suspenseful and sustained, this skillfully made lo-fi horror movie plays knowingly with genre tropes and yet never winks at the audience, giving it a refreshing face-value earnestness that makes it all the more gripping."
