So this one was pretty polarizing for horror fans. Some loved it, some hated it. I personally really enjoyed it, because I’m a fan of slow burn movies. This movie follows a girl who contracts a very strange STD… it leads to her being followed by an eerie force, and if it catches her it kills her. Once it kills her, it goes back and kills the person who gave it to her and so on. The concept is interesting, although I don’t find myself caring about the characters too much (they’re kind of saltine people). What I do love about this film is the way it looks, it’s beautiful. It has a retro summertime feel. There’s lots of swimming, a beach scene, and some of the shots are beautifully still and feel like a relaxing breeze. It almost feels like a 70’s classic, like Halloween but set in the transition between summer and fall. This could probably count as a halloween movie as well, as it is a horror movie, but it certainly feels like the end of summer to me.
