Following its premiere at Cannes as part of Critics’ Week, the horror film It Follows has been picked up by RADiUS for U.S. distribution. Written and directed by David Robert Mitchell and produced by Rebecca Green, Laura D. Smith, Mitchell, David Kaplan and Erik Rommesmo, It Follows will open in theaters in early 2015. The cast includes Maika Monroe, Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi, and Lili Sepe.
“American horror has an extraordinary new voice in David Robert Mitchell,” stated RADiUS co-president Tom Quinn. “It Follows is an inspired gift for horror fans everywhere. Both haunting and beautiful, it’s sure to be considered one of the best indie horror films in over a decade.”
“It’s great to be working with such a dynamic company like RADiUS,” said writer/director Mitchell. “I’m really excited for audiences to see this film. I hope it leaves a lasting impression in the form of nightmares and a general sense of dread.”
For 19-year-old Jay (Monroe), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends at the lake. Yet, after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter she suddenly finds herself plagued by nightmarish visions; she can’t shake the sensation that someone, or something, is following her. As the threat closes in, Jay and her friends must somehow escape the horrors that are only a few steps behind.
