The Review: ‘It’ is someone you may or may not recognise, following you at a steady walking pace until it reaches and kills you. This curse/haunting is passed on via sex. To stop being followed, you must make love to someone else. It’s a premise that works strikingly well, a metaphor for the pressures of teen sex and losing your virginity.
Innocent day-to-day scenes become disturbing 360-degree panning shots as you and the characters have to evaluate who is ‘infected’.
I’ve rarely experienced such well-timed shocks in a film. Punctuated by a nightmarish soundtrack, this is a compelling, utterly terrifying movie.
The Verdict: The worst game of 'tag' you'll ever play.
