Commentaries on this Media!

When the main characters of "It Follows" execute a scheme to conquer the supernatural villain in a pool, the setup is entirely wordless — not a word of dialogue is spoken until the villain itself comes after protagonist Jay (Maika Monroe). Filmmaker David Robert Mitchell's staging of the sequence represents a delicate balance of disclosing and withholding the plan they are about to enact, ratcheting up feelings of suspense and unease within the audience.
