Ambiance
This horror movie is about a monster whose modus operandi makes its victims feel alone and isolated, no matter how well surrounded they are. Consequently, the audience feels that way, too. Writer and director David Robert Mitchell is really good at setting an ambiance and sticking to it. Most of the day scenes are shot under a cloudy sky and it is very depressing.
But it’s fitting, see, because this situation is hopeless. The first act can be shocking, as we understand the complexity of the main threat and how it pushes its victims to turn against their peers. In a nutshell, “it” is a supernatural sexual disease that moves from one partner to another. It is a monster that can take any human form. It follows you wherever you go, and it never gives up.
How creepy is that, considering you can’t even afford to sleep? It Follows is one of the scariest movies ever made. It is also the kind of film that could generate countless sequels if they were done right. It makes the most out of its gimmick, yet it leaves us wanting more. The special effects are sparse but oh so effective. The budget was relatively small and that’s never a problem.
