A precursor to the smartphone - the flip-phone of the early & mid 2000's was nicknamed the "clam-shell". See more »
Near the end of the film, Paul fires a small handgun several times and hits the 'follower' in the head, knocks him out. The scene clearly reveals that bullets hit the pool surface at an approximate angle of 30 degrees, and judging by the actors' height, bullets travel at least 9-10 feet in the water before they hit the target. It would be impossible for those bullets, that are fired at an extreme angle, to wound someone after traveling so far in the water. In fact, MythBusters did an episode investigating the effects of guns fired at targets that are underwater, they proved the water provides protection. See more »

Will surely scare the daylight out of you // instagram: moviesmaniax
If The Sixth Sense scared the sh*t out of you when going to toilet at night, or Paranormal Activity made you afraid to stay at home alone, It Follows will definitely creep you out when walking back alone at night. After I saw this film, I would definitely run my ass off if I see anyone walking slowly behind me late at night. This film is a truly modern classic with its original and brilliant concept, all of which is put together nicely with its expertly directing and thought-provoking scares. The SCARES here are effective throughout thanks largely to its excellent soundtrack and intense sound effects that even though you can tell something is coming from its increasing volume of the music, but it will still effectively shock and gives you the chill down your spines when it happens. There are not many GORY scenes here but once it happens, it's definitely a terrifying one to look at. Overall, It Follows is not only the scariest film since The Conjuring but also one of the best ones worth watching before you die for its directing, concept, performance, music, etc, all of which comes together and works perfectly. It may have some funny moments along the way but once the scare comes, it's just expertly done and this film will surely scare the daylight out of you.
