David Robert Mitchell's 'It Follows' Poster & TrailerPosters Trailers
We finally get the first (French!) trailer to David Robert Mitchell's much buzzed about horror flick, It Follows, which already made it's rounds at Cannes, Fantastic Fest, AFI FEST, and now it's going to Sundance! This is Mitchell's sophomore feature after The Myth of the American Sleepover (which is on Netflix) and it looks really good! Written and directed by Michell, It Follows is about 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe), who finds herself plagued by strange visions and an inescapable sense that someone (or thing!) is following her after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter.
Initially, I wasn't sure I was on board with the whole "being punished for being sexually-active" kind of premise but after watching the trailer, there is a omnipresent darkness, permeating through the trailer that'll surely leave many of us shaking in our boots come 2015. Many critics have already claimed that this film and The Babadook could be 2014's scariest films which only makes me want to see it that much more! Even though, I am the worst when it comes to horror films, its premise about teen sexuality is of great interest to me so bring it on! Sadly, I couldn't catch It Follows when it was at AFI FEST. But thank goodness RADiUs and The Weinstein Company acquired the rights and will be distributing it early 2015. Doesn't it look so creepy and awesome?
