It Follows | dir. David Robert Mitchell | USA | 2014 | 100 min. 
After hooking up with a guy she's been dating for a short time, Jay (Maika Monroe) finds herself being followed by a spectre bent on her destruction. Fleeing the relentless creature, Jay and her friends soon discover that the only way to divert the curse is to pass it on to another. Foregrounding familiar horror tropes about sexual promiscuity and teens, David Robert Mitchell's greatest film (to date) has its cake and eats it too, smartly dabbling in genre pastiche and referencing several classic horror films while also constructing truly terrific sequences of terror peppered throughout its running time.
