An international trailer has dropped for It Follows, a small horror film that has been getting rave reviews everywhere.
The film tells the story of Jay (Maika Monroe), a nineteen-year-old who is stuck with a sexually transmitted serial haunting. It sounds like the perfect plot for a dark comedy, but early word is that this is one freaky film.
The trailer (in English) below doesn’t give away too much, but it nicely shows off the film’s unsettling tone.
There’s no word on whether or not the U.S. production will be getting a wide release, but It Follows hits France on February 4 and the UK on February 27.
Excerpt from TIFF’s description of It Follows:
Dating is already an emotional minefield, but the last thing nineteen-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe, who also stars in this year’s Midnight Madness selection The Guest) expects at the end of a romantic night out is to be stuck with a sexually transmitted serial haunting. In the light of day, she is stalked, followed, and attacked by terrifying, half-naked figures that none of her friends can see. These apparitions are driven by a single desire: to see her dead. With nowhere to run and no one to turn to, Jay is helpless against this phantom plague — that is, unless she passes the curse on to someone else.
