As the Halloween month draws to a close we have one more spooky flick for you. And keeping with the theme, we’ve dragged Rachel in on this one to try and give her a good scare! And It Follows both did and didn’t live up to the task.
Rachel is famously a scaredy cat, and when she accepted our invitation to watch Midsommar with us earlier this year we were a bit shocked. Her reaction to that movie was so priceless we’ve been desperately trying to recreate that moment. Unfortunately, few movies carry with it THAT much dread. It Follows certainly has its share of it, but Rachel really couldn’t get over the bad decisions made by the main characters enough to really let it take her out. There were some good screams and spooks, but ultimately she slept pretty good right after so we failed.
The good news is she did like It Follows even if it wasn’t totally the scariest. It’s shot super well, it has great mood and tone, and that soundtrack is chef’s kiss. We certainly will be trying to scare her some more, and eventually we’ll get her to watch Hereditary.
So what do you guys think of It Follows? Is it a horror classic or is the lead too dumb to transcend the genre? Let us know over on Twitter or in the YouTube comments! Let us know what your favorite movies are that ACTUALLY scare the pants off you! For now though, settle in for today’s invisible ghost-fueled episode of So…I’m Watching This Show!
