It Follows – Trailer

While I wouldn’t by any means call 2014-2015 a banner year for horror movies, I am glad to see that there are some coming down the pike that approach the genre with the sort of vision that more often than not elevates the material, such as The Babadook (on the strength of which director Jennifer Kent was rumored to be in the running to direct the upcoming Warner Bros. upcoming Wonder Woman movie) and David Robert Mitchell‘s It Follows, a movie that takes some familiar tropes (sexual awakening in a young woman) and takes it to new and frightening places.

Though what I find most interesting is that, while there’s plenty of crappy horror films out there–and probably always will be–there are filmmakers that don’t take the fact that they’re working on a horror film as an excuse to do weak work.
