It Follows (2014) feat. Ari Drew
After two years, we're FINALLY tackling a top request from listeners: David Robert Mitchell's It Follows (2014). Along for the ride is Trace's better half, Ari Drew, who has developed a special connection to the film during the pandemic.
Expect a lot of comparisons to Hereditary and other “slow burn/feel bad films”, including speculation about why horror audiences may struggle with these films, particularly on a first watch.
Also: how It Follows evokes a sense of timelessness, why the opening scene is a perfect short film, why Ari finds so much comfort in a dread-filled film, and how Joe has come around on the pool climax.
Plus: plenty of healthy debate about the ending, talk about shitty boys, and, finally, pondering the fate of Bait Bus.
