A disappointing follow up to "It Follows" for director David Robert Mitchell. A film that is a little too interested in making cerebral references and packing in as many esoteric themes and ideas as possible. Leaning toward keeping a mysterious mood rather than making the film spell out its intention, which isn't always a bad thing, but its not interesting enough to keep the viewer wanting to find out what's going on. In other words - it just gets boring. It has a nice Hitchcock feel (including lovely use of music), along with a modern, if not an entirely original take on film noir but the story just isn't nearly dramatic enough. Reminds me of the follow up to the brilliant "Donnie Darko" where Richard Kelly just tried too hard to be intellectually, visually and thematically interesting but just falls flat on simple story telling... I guess second films are as hard as second albums.
