‘It Follows’ is Not About STDs. It’s About Life As a Sexual Assault Survivor.

IT FOLLOWS via Dimension Films

It Follows is among the most thematically-rich horror films released in the past decade, so it’s endlessly frustrating that the average viewer knows it as “the STD movie.” To be fair, this reputation is somewhat understandable; after all, the plot revolves around a malevolent entity that is passed on to others through sex. Yet David Robert Mitchell’s film has virtually nothing to say about life with an STD. Rather, it’s one giant metaphor for the horrifying aftermath of sexual assault and a denunciation of victim-blaming.

Consider one of the opening scenes, in which our protagonist, Jay, goes on a date with her new boyfriend, Hugh. While standing in line at the cinema, they play “the trade game,” which involves looking around and picking a random person with whom you would like to trade lives. The only reason this is even a game is that neither Jay nor Hugh typically pays attention to individual members of a crowd. Very few of us do, really. Implicit in our decision to ever leave the house at all is an extraordinary trust in those around us, so we rarely give any thought to the nameless faces passing by who might not have our best interests at heart. Very shortly, keeping a watchful eye on strangers will become a fundamental part of Jay’s existence. Her life of blissful ignorance is about to end.

That starts when Jay is betrayed by someone she opened herself up to. After having sex with Hugh, her innocence when it comes to romance is put on display when she reveals her childhood fantasy of simply holding hands with a cute guy in a car.  As she presents this lovely story, Hugh is preparing a chloroform rag in the background. All this time, he was only using her to pass on the curse. The demon is forcibly thrust onto Jay and now, to remain alive, she must distrust everyone in her immediate vicinity. That assumed faith in her fellow man has been shattered. A time when it was not necessary for Jay to monitor the movements of every passerby, a time when studying members of a crowd was a fun game, seems like a distant memory.

So far, what’s happening to Jay is less an analogue to having an STD and more a metaphor for life as a rape survivor. Even though the sex was consensual, the image of Hugh knocking Jay out certainly calls rape to mind, and besides, could Jay really give consent without having any knowledge of the creature? The ensuing visuals of Jay being dropped home half-naked, getting questioned by police, staying at the hospital, and laying in bed depressed for days, hammer the point home. Upon arriving back at the house, Jay spends a lot of time staring at herself in the mirror, examining the body that has been violated by an intruder.

It’s important to note that it’s not as if the monster only exists in the reality of the person it has latched itself onto. It surrounds all of these characters, but it’s only now that Jay has been made aware. The dangers surrounding her – this idea that she is never safe and is always being studied with a lustful eye – are hardly new, but Hugh was simply the one to wake her up.

David Robert Mitchell repeats key scenes and shots in different contexts in order to contrast Jay’s life before and after the attack. There’s a sequence in the first act in which Jay is relaxing in her pool when she realizes she is being watched by her neighbors, who are clearly seeing her as a sex object. She isn’t particularly miffed, and in fact she seems to find it somewhat amusing. “I can see you,” Jay says with a smile, and the boys duck from sight upon being spotted. At this point, being gawked at by strangers is a mild inconvenience that she brushes aside with a laugh. Later, in the midst of Jay’s new circumstances, she tries to relax in the pool again but finds it impossible to do so anymore. Almost instantly after entering the water, she looks at the picket fence where her neighbors had been watching her from earlier, and it takes on an all new meaning. Before, it was the spot from which a few silly boys were being a bit annoying, but now, Jay sees this as yet another threat. She immediately exits the water and returns inside. So much for being able to enjoy a nice day.

Jay’s life might be easier if her friends could see the demon, but they are blind to its presence. They can try to understand what Jay is going through, and they can do their best to be as supportive as possible, but they have no concept of how terrifying her world has become. When the creature is in the area or is approaching Jay directly, most of her peers look at her like she’s out of her mind, blaming her for her fear instead of blaming the thing instilling that fear in her. “Is something wrong with me,” Jay asks with tears rolling down her face. Nobody tells her no.

This is another extension of the rape metaphor, with Jay’s acquaintances subconsciously looking down at her for getting in this situation when she did absolutely nothing wrong. When Jay’s neighbors see ambulances outside of her home, they comment that she is “such a mess.” Even when Jay is being questioned by a police officer following the initial encounter with Hugh, his questions take on an unintentionally condescending tone, as if he’s approaching the conversation with the knowledge that she should have known better.

The only people who can understand Jay are those who are also within the creature’s path of destruction or, in other words, those who have been the victims of sexual violence themselves. When the gang tracks down Hugh (whose real name is revealed to be Jeff) and he shares his experiences, they all sit around in a circle as if in a support group. We find out that even though it’s possible to transfer the curse to another person, you can never really escape its wrath. Assuming Jay dies, it will then kill Hugh, the person who gave it to him, and it will continue going down the line. Once you have been violated, there is no easy fix. It will be with you forever.

IT FOLLOWS via Dimension Films

And so even after someone like Hugh passes it on, he must still live a highly-paranoid life, not knowing if Jay has since been killed and therefore if he is now the target. Like Jay, Hugh must still look with suspicion at every single person he comes in contact with for the rest of his life. His heart still must skip a beat whenever a stranger so much as glances at him. He will never be able to go for a walk without his entire body shaking with dread. His life is completely destroyed no matter what. As Hugh puts it, “Wherever you are, it’s somewhere walking straight towards you.” For rape survivors, too, even if society instructs them to “get over it,” the scars will always be a part of them, and it’s difficult to recapture the same sense of safety they had before.

It fits with the metaphor, then, that the villain of the piece may or not have been defeated in the closing moments. Jay and her friends come up with an elaborate plan to kill it that seems feasible, but it’s unclear whether they pulled it off. They shoot the creature, it bleeds, yet the final shot features a stranger ominously following Jay and Paul down the street. Is it the monster? Is it a normal person? We aren’t sure, and that’s the point: even if the thing is dead, it has not truly been vanquished because Jay will nonetheless spend the rest of her life in a state of paranoia, thinking it could return at any second. Whether it will return is irrelevant.

Jay opens herself up to Paul and they hold hands in the final scene, which is nice, but that doesn’t do much on a practical level. A lesser film might wrap on a cliche lesson like “one must only settle down with their true love to leave all the evils of the world behind,” but Jay getting with Paul does not have any effect whatsoever on whether the creature is alive.

It does, however, mean that Jay no longer has to go through this alone, and so the third act victory has little to do with an evil being banished. This isn’t a story about a monster that terrorizes teenagers and then is sent back to the depths of hell. It’s about a girl who is betrayed, must suffer through the aftermath with little help, but who ultimately finds someone willing to share the burden.

IT FOLLOWS via Dimension Films

She tried this earlier with Greg, but that plan instantly backfired and resulted in Greg’s death. What’s different this time? Well, Greg very clearly did not believe Jay or sympathize with her struggle. While Paul passionately argues that Jay is not making this up, Greg shrugs and says that “something happened, but it’s not what she thinks.” He’s along for the ride, and if he’s presented with an opportunity to have sex with the hot blonde, that’s a nice bonus, but he has no real interest in helping Jay cope.

Paul, on the other hand, is fully on her side, and that’s why the ending is a happy one. It’s not particularly important that Paul and Jay are dating. This isn’t some lame conclusion about sleeping with the nice guy instead of the jock. The point is that Jay finally has someone that cares about her and can truly empathize with her pain without a hint of condescension or doubt. She no longer has to live in a world where nobody can fathom what she’s going through.

Given the horror genre’s historically terrible depiction of female sexuality, It Follows is nothing short of a gift. The subtext of almost every slasher is that promiscuous women should be punished for having premarital sex, and anyone who isn’t a naive virgin will be brutally slaughtered. Many have dismissed It Follows as another movie in that same line, in which our lead faces the consequences of daring to have sex purely for her own pleasure.

In fact, It Follows is an anti-victim blaming masterpiece that gives a huge middle finger to the genre’s antiquated approach to sex. It’s about a girl who, through absolutely no fault of her own, has her body violated. The world she’s subjected to in the aftermath is complete hell, and there are no easy solutions. Her life has been forever changed, and non-victims will never truly get what that’s like. Such is life as a survivor of rape, and the fact that we live in a judgemental society that is so quick to blame the victim doesn’t make it any easier.

But Jay finds some hope not through dispelling her monster, but in sharing the pain with someone who understands. David Robert Mitchell’s film uses the horror genre to extend a welcoming hand to sexual assault survivors everywhere and send a clear message: you are not alone.

    Movie kinda sucks, don’t care what it was about…it won’t change my mind.

    • Jake

      not kinda sucks – it simply sucks.

      • Meisha’s Taint

        Your lack of vocabulary “sucks”

        1/3 of every post on here is something along the lines of ” ME NOT LIKE THIS” please try harder guys it’s a waste of others time to keep reading these over and over again you are offering nothing to the conversation. PLEASE TRY HARDER!

  • Beelzebubba

    Wow, stretching quite a bit on this theory aren’t we?!?!?! The movie was mediocre at best(writing, editing, cinematography, etc.) and your implication that there was this much depth to it is almost comical. It would be like saying Nightmare on Elm Street wasn’t about a serial killer hunting teens in there dreams, it was really a manifestation of our fears of being unable to look inward and accept ourselves for who we really are.(ala The Breakfast club). Sometimes a fish is just a fish and sometimes a movie is actually as shallow as it seems.

    • Cynthia Cepeda

      Metaphors are a lie made up by sjws.

  • James

    While I didn’t see it so much as rape but a loss of innocence and childhood, I do see what you’re getting at. Either way great film.

  • HorrorMovieSoundtrack

    I think it’s great that not everyone sees the same thing in a movie (or in a song, for that matter). Everybody has a different interpretation and it’s perfectly alright.

  • shawn lawson

    I liked it. Few creepy parts. Insanely good soundtrack. This does seem to be a bit deep though. Should write an article backing A Serbian Film. Movie is fucking awesome and everyone seems to dismiss it as disgusting trash

    • Tim Nuttall

      Yes, it offended people so much that they refused to accept it had interesting themes about power, pretty damn good cinematography – and completely failed to notice that it is, at its core, a black comedy. Saying that, Its not one I would watch regularly…

  • JR

    This isn’t the first article I’ve read that makes a compelling argument for the film being about sexual assault and rape culture. Just google “it follows rape culture” and numerous posts come up. To say that this theory is “too deep” is, frankly, laughable to me. Whether the filmmaker intended that to be the message or not, isn’t the whole point of art and film that it can be interpreted in numerous ways by different people? If you can make a case for your argument, then I don’t see the problem with delving deeply into any film.

  • alwayswipetwice

    Very interesting. I’ve only seen this once (and wasn’t bowled over by it), but this theory makes sense if only because her behavior after the incident was very in line with a rape survivor – which is that she was basically non-functional. Probably the most significant difference (or at least from personal account and most others’) is that she still had her core group of friends. Their loyalty throughout the situation is possibly the most significant statement within this whole theory.

  • Halloween_Vic

    This was a really good read actually and made sense to the context of the film.

  • Mark Lepine

    And everything you mentioned at the beginning could as be do to her finding out she is HIV positive and the monster following her around is the thought of being full blown AIDS.

  • Jake

    Still the STD movie. Bad, bad and bad.

  • Stoibs

    Dude, just stop it with this terrible movie! No matter how much you try to polish this turd, it’s still a turd.

    • Chris Yurkin

      Agree. It lost me the entire time and not one person I had watch it, liked it.

      • Meisha’s Taint

        It has a 65% and a 95% on rotten tomatoes majority seem to dig it why do people who don’t like this movie pretend like they are the majority??????? Terrible? Turd? Not one liked it????? Drama queens you all are boo fuckin hoo

        • Warbaby

          Horror movie hipsters are the worst… They are so much more enlightened…

          • Meisha’s Taint

            What does that mean?

          • Warbaby

            I’ve noticed a trend in the horror community… Basically, the more popular a horror film is the more likely it is to attract horror film hipsters who have to announce to everyone how much they hated it. The comment section below this article is about half full of people who came here JUST to say “This move sucked!” or “I hate this movie!”.

            Now, if this article was a review of the film, it would totally make sense to have that going on. Only, this wasn’t a review. It was a theory about the film being laid out by someone who enjoyed the movie enough to view it multiple times and actually come up with their own take. It was pretty obvious to anyone who can read that this was going to be an article discussing the themes in “It Follows”. If you don’t like the film, why are you reading about it? Why are you clicking the title of an article about a movie you hate so much?

            Maybe some folks that don’t like the film were reading hoping for some insight into the appeal? Maybe some people who didn’t like it wanted to discuss it with people who did? Yeah, I could see that. But what about the ones who clicked on the link to an article about a movie they despise and scrolled straight down to the comments section to shit on the movie?

            Those are your horror movie hipsters. They just want everyone to know that they were too cool to like the movie everyone else liked… And it’s not enough to shit on the movie and then move on to something else, like normal people would do… They have to go into every article, forum, thread, etc. that they see mentioning the movie and tell everyone “Oh. My. Glob! How could you like that movie?! It was such shit!” I never understand it, either. Maybe they think it makes them superior in some way to the rest of the world? To me, it’s just dumb.

            Who goes to a strip club just to tell everyone there how much they hate boobs? Horror movie hipsters would…

        • alwayswipetwice

          I think the Tomatometer is bullshit (ie: TFA has a 92% – bullshit!). I HATE absolutism in this context because movies are rarely all good or all bad, so it’s ridiculous to expect people to choose one or the other. Systems like that excuse people from having to articulate the nuances. It Follows is the perfect example. I don’t think it’s as great as some people applaud it to be, but I also don’t think it’s all terrible either. The cinematography, soundtrack, and base idea of it are great. But it seriously fails in the writing department. There’s barely any plot to carry the half-baked concept across the 90min runtime. Nothing really happens. The dialogue is uninspired too, imo. The characters don’t even have anything interesting to talk about in the moments where nothing is happening. It’s just boring. And I think the director’s reasoning for the ending is lazy and insulting (he said their idea is stupid because they’re kids). It had some genuine scares, but as a whole it’s just blah.

          • Meisha’s Taint

            Thank you so much for actually saying why you disagree as opposed to the usual ” You suck” or something is “stupid” comments I have some to expect on BloodyDisgusting.

          • alwayswipetwice

            Well, I like talking about horror movies, so by default I have to be able to articulate my thoughts. Otherwise I have nothing to talk about. lol. Don’t get upset over what people say though. You don’t need to interact with everyone you disagree with/disagrees with you because half the time it’s going to be like trying to get orange juice from a potato. Some people are trolls and others just speak in hyperboles because they either can’t or won’t elaborate their thoughts – and you’ll probably never know which is which in some cases.

            And those types of comments are far from being exclusive to BD. This is part of the internet, after all.

          • Meisha’s Taint

            Do you read reviews at all before watching horror movies? I like Rotten Tomatoes because it’s a quick way to read reviews of some of my favorite writers/bloggers who I’d be reading anyways ( Scott Wienberg, Mike Braken, Stacy Lynn Wilson ) I just don’t have to go site to site

            Who do you trust to recommend horror flicks? What other sites do you read?

          • alwayswipetwice

            Aside from the ones I read on here that interest me, I don’t read reviews at all or even visit RT much anymore. I usually know if I want to see a movie based off the director, writer, cast, premise, etc. If it’s something I’m on the fence about, I’ll see it anyway. Ultimately, I prefer dialogue with other fans/cinephiles than the one-sided nature of a review.

          • Overton Green

            Rottentomatoes is mostly good. Yeah there are inconsistencies but for the most part it gets it right. Batman v Superman was a really bad movie. On the flip side it has a worse rating than Daredevil and Catwoman. It’s bad but better than those films lol.

            I think because there are more and more critics it skews the ratings comparison when you are comparing an older movie vs. a newer movie.

            I do agree with you on TFA…it is definitely no where near worthy of the 92% it received.

    • I actually dug this film. It reminded me a lot of the old 80s horror films in tone (it borrowed heavily from Carpenter’s original Halloween not just in look and tone but also the score too). It’s a slow burn film and I get why some wouldn’t enjoy it. For me though it was a real trip down memory lane.

  • Forgot how polarizing this movie is lol

  • Braker

    IT FOLLOWS is whatever the viewer thinks it’s about and whatever it meant to the director. Please don’t tell us what it isn’t.

    • AlanMorlock

      People can view it as an STD metaphor but on those grounds the film doesnt hold up as well. Some reason gs have more support from the text itslef than others.

  • Chris Yurkin

    It Follows was horrible….

    • Meisha’s Taint

      I’m calling on a ban on the words “horrible” “sucks” and “blows” to describe movies it’s like saying nothing at all. WHY don’t you like it Chris?? No one cares if you like it or not…..WHY don’t you like it?

  • AphroditeBoy

    It can be about both.

  • Uter

    The article presents an interesting take. To suggest STDs is all the movie is about I feel is too simple an interpretation. It seems like people dislike this movie just to be contrary. As far as horror movies go, it’s one of the best in recent years, easily. I’d like to hear from the critics what from 2015 beats this.

    • I agree. Genuinely one of the best quality horror films I’ve seen in a long time. I find it hard to understand the gripe some people have with it.

  • Jacob

    The thing about It Follows is that it wanted to be an 80’s movie but failed in almost every aspect.

    The film could’ve done without the opening, some of the manifestations behaved really randomly (they were like randomly gratuitous so it was kinda awkward in a lot of scenes)

    And the characters were all kinda weird. Like there was a lot of emphasis on that one girl’s iPad type thing even though the film tried so hard to have an ’80’s-type vibe. It was just random.

    I get why some people might like the movie, and why some might say it reminds them of an old school horror film,

    But the thing about old school horror films is that they were unpredictable, original, and pushed boundaries. This movie just consisted of a few random gags and jump scares based on a few clips of Halloween it seems.

    • Overton Green

      they had the 70s era house yet a 2010 Toyota in the drive way. All the main characters had old cars but the cars on the street were modern. Then the biggest issue was they were always watching old school box tv that were in black in white and the only thing that came on tv were 1960s films.

      Very strange indeed. I think budget constraints kept them from doing the total transformation. That aside I really loved the movie.

  • skapoo

    I called it “demonic aids” but it’s clear tons of people thought the same. So yes it is about STDs lol
    I dunno, I didn’t like it that much. Seems like they took a few things from Carpenter’s Halloween but it wasn’t great like that movie was.

  • Francesco Falciani

    i’d love a sequel to it. didn’t they plan it?

  • marklola12 .

    it was ok but certainly not as great as everyone makes out

  • I wouldn’t say the STD concept makes the film less ‘deep’, it was a unique approach. The idea of the film being a metaphor for sexual abuse is interesting and makes some sense, but Jay isn’t the only person who interacts with the demon. To say the film isn’t about STDs and is infact about sexual abuse is like saying the entire film universe revolves around Jay, otherwise every character that is killed or followed by the demon is also experiencing sexual abuse.

  • Brett Strohl

    I thought it had something to do with sexual assault when the girl starts placing blades of grass on her arm in the pattern of self mutilating cuts. But I couldn’t really untangle the whole thing. Great write up Brendan!

  • lány

    I also think that the approach to sex in this movie is excellent. It is seen as natural that Jay is sexually experienced, e.g. when her sister asks if she slept with Hugh on their first date, or when she says she decided to try to pass it on to Greg as 1. he was not afraid, 2. they already had sex in high school and it was not a big deal.
    I think it is wrongly interpreted as another movie that warns about the consequences of sex, and rather it is about the violation of trust, as described in this article.

  • Peter Johnson

    Maybe don’t throw one theory out the door just because you see it in a certain way. Come on man, number one rule for open ended movies is multiple interpretations, so don’t be so positive that this is for sure what it’s about. It’s a good theory, though

  • Grandpa Fred

    Dear author of this piece, whatever your take on the movie is, that’s fine. But to say the ending is ‘happy’ is downright silly. Did you not happen to catch the solitary figure walking slowly a small distance behind Jay and Paul on the sidewalk right before the scene cuts? It hasn’t -and will never- end.

  • Maxime C

    For me this movie was all about falling asleep and having to start it all over again.

  • Jimmy Cthulhuhan

    When was she sexually assaulted… they had consensual sex, then he “abused” her (for relatively understandable reasons, albeit mostly to save his own skin). They basically just had a twisted one night stand. Which I think is the kinda the point…

    IMO, it was the story of a girl with very cliche daddy issues (and her eventual comeuppance to find some self respect). STD monster is a thing, but not the real point… just the driving force of the movie… a result of her “problem” that forces her to see and inevitably fix herself (albeit possibly too late) Could go into airtight detail, but… I’m lazy! The article is mostly on point though, just swap sexual assault shame (is that a thing?) with slut shame.

    Regardless, alright movie, not great, not bad.

  • Overton Green

    I don’t see how this movie is about sexual assault at all? No one in the film was sexually assaulted. The people in the movie were basically given a supernatural STD.

    Jay gave it up voluntarily each time she had sex. Her motivations for why she gave it up doesn’t matter. The facts are she was never forcibly raped and because of that the sexual assault survivor take makes absolutely no sense and is invalid.

    • Birk McClain

      is there such a thing as ‘non-forcible’ rape?

      • Darnell

        Yes

  • Shane da Lucky

    In conclusion Paul has to keep having sex with prostitutes in order to keep “it” at bay… These random encounters keep “it” away for awhile but “it” always comes back. This was a clincher for me. It’s about sex, the passing of a curse through sex. Clever.

    If you think of the horror of someone knowingly giving you a chronic STD like HIV (“it”) then this makes the STD scenario far more sinister.

    As for the movie being a metaphor for rape or sexual abuse I don’t think so, I think thats being a little over analytical.

  • Ash Housewares

    I didn’t perceive the film as a metaphor for STD’s. For that,”Species” and HIV/AIDS come to mind. I really didn’t think about what the horror represented but I think you nailed is as metaphor for sex. assault/victim blaming. Thanks for such a thoughtful article.

  • Birk McClain

    that’s not what the movie was tho. check the wiki.

  • THGrimm

    I didn’t care for this movie, but this article is a great interpretation and makes me appreciate it more.

  • StatoMatt

    Not saying this is what it was about by any stretch of the imagination. Also not saying is isn’t what the author said either. I felt the movie was an adept criticism of people who pass the buck. People who could bite the bullet and deal with an issue themselves, but instead decide it is easier to pass it on. Set I Detriot it reeks of the way the automotive industry and government bail outs left individuals to fend for themselves and rewarded people who hid the truth and had a chance to deal with it early on. Also shots at environmental cover-ups and people who don’t report crimes of all nature.

    I think the reason it spanned eras 70s housing, 80s soundtracks, movies from the 50s, cars from today and “clam-shell e-readers from the future is because it has always been happening. Both the passer of the buck and the heroine who confronts an issue are behaviours that has followed human kind since the dawn of time and will continue to until humans disappear. Maybe I am reading too much into it, but that is what I see.

  • Derek

    I liked the article and LOVED the movie. The fact that this movie is still talked about often shows that it was original enough to stick with us.

  • Darkness69

    Loved the movie. Excellent article!

  • Baron Von Marlon

    This is one the reasons I don’t like this movie. It’s too vague. Open too many interpretations.
    Like the creators don’t really know it themselves and they’re like “Hey, let the viewers figure it out!”
    Personally I consider this lazy. Being vague and creepy isn’t that hard. Writing a solid script is.

  • Vincent Kane

    I don’t care what you call it. It was flat horrible, nothing scary about ti even with the “undertones”. Sorry but this “new” type of horror is ridiculous.

    • BigStanRutgers

      fff

  • BossWalrus

    Great article!! Finally just saw this and loved it, and now I feel like I need to re watch it.

  • BigStanRutgers

    “Waaah! I don’t like movies that expect me to think!”

    Shut up and stop expecting everything in a film to be handed to you on a platter.

  • Creature_of_the_Night

    It might not even be about rape – she had consensual sex- the movie just may be a metaphor for how you reach puberty and eventually have sex, and how puberty and sex just changes the world forever somehow, and how you see things.

    Sometimes, I know it is crazy, I think the world was better before I even reached puberty and didn’t have sexual desires. When I was more innocent.

    But I think the movie just may be about reaching puberty, and how it changes the world in a person’s eyes, and they see everything differently.

    Like the pool, at the beginning she doesn’t think much of being looked at, but after having sex…. then she knows how she and OTHERS think, and it creeps her out and she goes in the house.

    Just my two cents.

  • Creature_of_the_Night

    The passable supernatural STD is simply having had sex, and how it changes you and your view of the world – the loss of innocence.
