Thompson on Hollywood

Cannes STD Horror Hit 'It Follows' Lands Distribution; Director Interview (UPDATED)

The only question is, why did it take so long? Cannes horror hit "It Follows," David Robert Mitchell's second Cannes Critics' Week entry after "The Myth of the American Sleepover," has been scooped up by RADiUS, beating out several companies chasing U.S. rights. Shot again near his hometown of Detroit, Michigan, Mitchell turns to horror with the same dreamy tone, taking full advantage of the destroyed Michigan landscape. He wants to scare us, pulling us into his likable characters' romantic entanglements and then puts us on edge as we wonder who's following who.
