Popular horror film 'It Follows' is set to get a darker sequel

If you're a fan of the 2015 horror movie It Follows, you are in for some good news as a sequel to the popular horror movie has been announced, titled They Follow, promising to be even darker and scarier than the original. 

Released in 2015, the film centers around a curse transmitted through sexual intercourse, where victims are pursued and killed by a supernatural entity and currently it holds an impressive 95% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Maika Monroe, who played the main character Jamie ‘Jay’ Height in the first movie, said the new script is "so fu***** good" and gave full credit to the director, David Robert Mitchell, who will be returning for the sequel.
I’m not taking any credit in this, David is brilliant. I mean, he is brilliant. The whole movie transformed at that point. It was changing the game in the genre, and he wouldn’t ever make a sequel if he didn’t think it was going to top it. 

‘He’s very specific, turns down so many… He just knows what he wants to do and what he wants to make. I mean, at first, I’m like, “Oh, a sequel? Where are we going to go here?” And I read it, and it’s just so f***ing good. It’s so good. I’m so excited.

I think where you’ll meet Jay at this point is maybe not what’s expected, but it’s so cool. It’s just, of course, as everyone says for sequels, literally, though, is just bigger and darker and more f***ed up. Reading it was the craziest thing ever. 

When It Follows was released, it quickly became a cult favorite, grossing over $20 million and the film propelled Monroe to fame and even earned her a nomination for an Empire Award.

She will next be seen in the upcoming horror movie LongLegs.
