There’s been an enjoyable stint of smaller-budget horror movies of late, The Babadook being among the most recent, and this new offering, It Follows, shows there’s life in the old genre yet.
The innovative-yet-respectful twist from director Robert David Mitchell, is that this time 'It' takes the form of a mysterious 'something' that is passed from person to person through sexual contact.
