Amid a recent resurgence in horror films, It Follows stands out. David Robert Mitchell reinvents genre bromides while simultaneously embracing and challenging tropes that audiences and filmmakers rely on too heavily. Joshua Grimm shows how this film helped reinvent the rules of horror, particularly along the lines of genre, style, sex, and gender.
