IT FOLLOWS is a horror film in which a young woman is stalked by a malevolent spirit, after having a curse passed on to her by her boyfriend.

Threat

Strong sustained threat and psychological horror throughout, with a supernatural element.

Sex

Frequent nudity, sometimes sexualised, including brief images from a pornographic magazine showing topless women posing, and one of them pulling her lingerie aside to reveal her genitals. Other nudity appears in a non-sexual context, such as a woman with dishevelled clothing and one breast bared, who is also urinating. There is also a scene in which a man is attacked by a woman who straddles him and thrusts in a sexual way, but they are both clothed and the scene registers as violence rather than sex.

Violence

Some strong violence, including blood spurts as people are shot in the head.

Injury detail

Strong gore as a corpse is shown with one leg snapped back at the knee, and posed at an unnatural angle, with blood and gore around the wound.

Language

Occasional strong language ('f**k').
