It Follows

April 2, 2015

"It doesn't think. It doesn't feel. It doesn't give up." This week on The Script Podcast, "It Follows" -- the sophomore effort from auteur David Robert Mitchell represents a movement towards more intelligent, modern horror films. "It Follows" is also Mitchell's love letter to classic horror, but does he represent Detroit? What does a strong female protagonist in a modern horror film need beside a scream and a great body? Two words, “super power." Do we get that in Maika Monroe's ingenue? How does 'anxiety horror' compare to traditional 'jump out' or 'gross out' horror? Also we talk Monster taxonomy, is ‘the follower’ a demon, a ghost, or ambiguous supernatural power? "It Follows" doesn't offer much in advice for safe sex, but our script doctors don't mind giving some.
