It Follows brought a very original and terrifying monster to our screens. The Entity that once attached to you and follows until it can end you. The only way to save yourself is to pass it along to someone else... or is there another way? Is there a way to actually defeat the monster? Loyal Theorists, this will have to be one of my most clever solutions yet! Let's get SCARY!

Your mention that money is an issue is an important one. I'm pretty sure one of the themes of this movie is being stuck with the circumstances you are born into. None of these kids have much hope of ever leaving this town. And they are affected by all of the problems that are part of this town. And they have a small limited circle of people that they are ever gonna have relationships with. And going to the University of Detroit is never going to give her a leg up on this life. She's trying to get past her circumstances - sleeping with the new guy who's from somewhere else, going to college, etc. - but the cards are stacked against her. Her only hope is band together with the other members of her community, because that's how people in these go nowhere towns are able to survive it's terrible problems.

So... here's a wild thought. Since the entity is humanoid, what if you managed to do the entity? It certainly can't chase itself now could it? Wouldn't make for the hottest date, but what if it imploded?

Down to earth practical plans for it are great and all but the ridiculous stuff is much more fun. Are there any stats on its ability to climb? Two words, Tree House lol. Digging a home into the side of one of those gimongous California redwoods would be dope, and if you build it right you should easily be able to keep the entity out of it.

An important part of your STDC treatment is to have group of 3. You, the person that gave it to you and a trusted friend who has not received the curse. That way you have another person who can see it and one person who can't to confirm the suspicious person walking toward you isn't visible to normies.

Because it's a horror movie you'd discover that it's rate of approach changes over time and after taking enough measurements of the entity's speed you find that the approach rate is becoming exponentially faster with each passing day.

MATT I HAVE A THEORY! What if the guy from hush is the same as the guy that survived in the belko experiment? I mean I don’t have a whole lot of evidence but the guy in the belko experiment was the only guy to survive I mean this would mean you would have to watch both movies and I really recommend them for a Friday night scare but like it it really is true their both played by the same actor and me and a friend are pretty sure there both made by BH production! Also the guy from belko (at the end) acts a lot like the guy in hush! He seems cold and emotionless! I wonder if their in the same universe

Why not just drive really really far away then take a flight, then a long while later do it again back and forth forever, although eventually you might not have enough money which why you fly away as far as possible, so then you have a long time to work and stuff, maybe make friends and tell them to help you maybe give you a home

If the is was real would it mean nobody would be born? You have to do it to have kids and if it kills you before 9-10 months how would the child be born. And how would it follow every single person who does to do. I mean there's a lot of people who do it at the same time

You're presuming the demon curse monster is stupid. In the beginning it doesn't know you at all, so of course it has no choice but to blindly follow you. However, after a few days of your commute, it'll figure out your routine and just wait for you at home or work.

The movie was enjoyable, but it offended me that they set it in The US. Even if one ignores that they have more guns than people; because kids don't have a lot of disposable income and there's theoretically a seven day wait to buy a gun; it makes no sense. They sell almost every sort of useful weapon at Walmart. On top of that, they also have fireworks for sale in every city with more than one traffic light. The M-80's (literally a partial stick of dynamite) are not legal anymore, but that's not much of a barrier. Then there are YA novels (like the Grimpow series), movies and cartoons that explain how to make gunpowder, TNT or dynamite, from easily sourced materials. That is probably why their horror movies are usually about people in the ocean or camping. American teens living on a farm or in the city would drop an eldridge horror in the hurt locker.
