  • The final form was that of Jay and Kelly's father. Not much is said about their father, but it's implied that he had died or left some time before the film. When Kelly asks what "it" looks like, Jay says "I don't want to tell you." likely as to not upset her sister. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • "It" is a creature that is invisible to anyone except to those whom it follows or has followed. The origins of "It" is a mystery. All that is known is that if you have sex with a person that "It" is following, it will then start following you instead. If it kills you, it starts following the person who passed it to you again. It can assume the form of previous victims or a person's loved ones, likely in order to wear on their nerves or catch them off guard. "It" cannot run, it only walks at a modest pace. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • After the attempt to defeat "It" in the swimming pool, Jay checks to see if it's still in the pool. What she sees is the entire pool turning into blood. Afterwards, Jay and Paul have sex. We then see Paul driving in a shady part of town, driving passed some prostitutes. It could be implied that he was considering passing it on to a prostitute. But it seems more like he changed his mind, as he continues to drive by them instead of stopping. Lastly, we see Paul and Jay walking down the street, holding hands. In the distant background we see a person walking in their wake. Then the film ends.

    This is left ambiguous, but it's possible that they defeated the creature at the pool. It's also possible that Jay and Paul decided to stay together and possibly pass the curse back and forth to each other (if it works that way). Third theory is that Paul indeed passed it onto someone else, but Jay and he stayed together as a couple. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • It walks at a steady pace, only stopping if blocked by doors or some other barrier. The average person walks at 5 kilometers per hour (3.1mph). So theoretically, if you drove 20km away, it would take 4 hours to reach you following the same path. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • According to the trivia, this is left deliberately ambiguous to make the movie seem more like a dream. The opening of the film appears to take place during modern day (2010's). As Annie, the girl being followed at the beginning is seen using a cell phone and driving a modern car. The rest of the film, cell phones are never used or seen again. Every television is an old style tube TV. The theater has the old style seating instead of the newer stadium-style seating. All the cars range from the 60's to early 90's, but nothing more modern.

    It could be said that the beginning of the film takes place during modern day, while the remainder of the film takes place in the late 80's/early 90's. Edit (Coming Soon)
