Film Brief: It Follows

It Follows - poster

I was hoping when I asked what “follows”, the answer would be a great movie that lived up to the Tomatometer hype.  It was not to be.  It Follows may be found somewhere between a supernatural horror film like The Ring and a corporeal one like Halloween or I Know What You Did Last Summer, but with pacing along the lines of Let the Right It Follows - text blockOne In.  I give an “A” for atmosphere, but filmmaking expertise and a knowing style are betrayed by gappy logic and a fundamentally lame storyline comprising retreads retrod.

There was a lot I liked about It Follows, but my mantra: story matters.  A marginal thumbs-down.  5/10
