She wowed us all in Adam Wingard‘s superb super solider thriller THE GUEST but can actress Maika Monroe hit big with genre fans in her latest performance in David Robert Mitchell‘s acclaimed shocker IT FOLLOWS? If the buzz on the festival circuit is anything to go by the answer appears to be an undeniable yes!

The breakout film from the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, It Follows is a suspenseful, beautifully shot, horror film that takes old, tired horror clichés and puts a smart, culturally relevant spin on them whilst maintaining a timeless class that the horror genre hasn’t seen for a long time. Teen sex, suburbia, murder, and nightmarish demons all take on a new layer of substance and style. Writer/Director David Robert Mitchell reminds us why these horror fundamentals are used so often and shows his peers how it’s done.

After a date and seemingly innocent sexual encounter, 19-year-old Jay (Monroe) is left with an inescapable sense that someone, or something is following her. Jay and her friends team up to try and find ways escape the traumatising horrors that are always right behind them.

Due for release in the UK and Ireland on 27th February 2015 we are delighted to bring you the first UK teaser trailer for this highly anticipated thriller that has been given five stars from TOTAL FILM.
