Of course, it’s impossible to know from just the trailer how effective a horror movie is going to be, and for the most part, while I love the genre, I’ve found myself disappointed by what has been attempting to pass itself off as horror for quite a while. Still, there have been those movies, such as last year’s The Babadook that have fulfilled their promise and combined just the right amount of plot, atmosphere, thought, and scares to prove themselves to be highly effective. For whatever reason, this trailer for It Follows makes me think that it, too, may have that same touch. It certainly seems to have gotten good reviews out of its premier at Cannes last year. Let’s just say I’m hopeful.
