For 19-year-old Jay, fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake...
One of the most hotly tipped films to come out of Cannes this year, David Robert Mitchell’s stylishly cool and beautifully shot sophomore feature IT FOLLOWS is set for release across the UK on 27 February 2015 through Icon Film Distribution. A contemporary horror exploring teen sex, suburbia, and the stuff of nightmares, IT FOLLOWS is a cult classic in the making from one of the most exciting film-making talents around.
For 19-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, or something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her teenage friends must find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind.
Following a standout performance opposite Dan Stevens in Adam Wingard’s The Guest, IT FOLLOWS sees 21 year-old rising star Maika Monroe in her first leading role. One of American’s hottest young acting talents, 2015 looks set to be a breakout year for Monroe as, following the release of IT FOLLOWS, she lines up alongside Chloë Grace Moretz in The Fifth Wave.
IT FOLLOWS will be released nationwide on 27th February 2015.
