The Alamo Drafthouse is excited to announce David Robert Mitchell's IT FOLLOWS as the latest Drafthouse Recommends title. Drafthouse Recommends spotlights first-run films with the Alamo stamp of approval, indicating, simply, that we love it and want everyone to go see it. The goal is to highlight groundbreaking, innovative and intelligent films we believe deserve to be seen by as many people as possible.
Director Mitchell's follow up to his widely acclaimed 2010 debut, THE MYTH OF THE AMERICAN SLEEPOVER, IT FOLLOWS takes some of choicest genre influences -- Spielberg's JAWS, Carpenter's HALLOWEEN, Nakata's RINGU, Cronenberg's THEY CAME FROM WITHIN, to name a few - and builds something entirely new. The result is an assured, pulse-pounding second outing for the director that easily stands alongside its influences and is sure to leave horror fans buzzing.
