Right now the talk of the town is David Robert Mitchell’s indie It Follows, a horror film that’s so goddamn good it’s playing nearly every single festival (next up is Sundance this coming January).
We nearly gave it a perfect score – calling it “a creepy, mesmerizing exercise in minimalist horror” – when reviewed out of the TIFF this past September.
Now, thanks to Bloody reader ‘Alexander B.,’ we have the official French teaser trailer (in English) that’s crazy tense, and shows just how terrifying the film will be. It could possibly be next year’s The Babadook, assuming Radius-TWC (who acquired the film) actually releases it.
Here’s what it’s about:
“For 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends at the lake. Yet after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter she suddenly finds herself plagued by nightmarish visions; she can’t shake the sensation that someone, or something, is following her. As the threat closes in, Jay and her friends must somehow escape the horrors that are only a few steps behind.”
Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi and Lili Sepe all star.
