Hope you enjoy starting with the March isssue:
It Follows (Movie Review)
Not a lot of films that have come out in the recent years have impressed me, but the recently released David Robert Mitchell film “It Follows” is one worth checking out. The premise of the story revolves around a young girl named Jay Height, who has a strange sexual encounter with her boyfriend Hugh. Jay is told that she will be followed by an entity unless she has sex with someone else. Otherwise it will seek her out and kill her. The movie itself revolves around her and her friends as she is plagued with visions of being followed by strange people, leaving her wondering whose real or not real, leaving you with an anxious feeling. After finding out that Hugh’s real name is Jeff Redmond, the plot unveils itself more as the movie continues, (which I won’t spoil for anyone). From what I’ve read, there has been a lot of debate over what exactly the movie represents, or what the director’s message was trying to relay. From what I gathered, it seemed that the film could be talking about several things, for example:
The lingering fear of sexual disease, or the shame that follows one around.
The repressed feelings or experiences that lurk in our minds.
Wasted time in relationships leading to unhappy results.
The movie itself is very dark and menacing, slowly creeping upon you when you least expect it. The soundtrack, created by artist, Disaster Peace, fits very well with the film. It gives off a very 70s/80s horror themed sound. For fans of supernatural horror films, I recommend this one. You won’t be disappointed.
