After watching the movie, do you have more questions than answers? Let me help you find the hidden meaning of the movie It and also explain what the movie’s ending means.
The 2014 IT movie is not actually an adaptation of Stephen King’s “Master of Horror” book. Our translators may have accidentally, or perhaps deliberately abbreviated the original name, which sounds like “It follows”, that is, “It follows”. But often domestic critics are visited by the idea of a special change in the name of the picture in order to attract viewers who love King’s film adaptations.
However, the new It won’t be released until 2017, so it’s hard to tell if the title was changed on purpose. We will leave these arguments to the audience and critics, and we ourselves will tell about the meaning of the film and its ending. Surprisingly, the plot of the picture is quite original and interesting in its own way. See more than you can!
Let’s do that!
What is the movie It Follows about?
The film “It” or, as in the original “It follows” will tell us the story of a terrible creature. A girl named Jay makes love to her new boyfriend. But he stuns her with chloroform. She wakes up in an unknown place, tied to a wheelchair. Then her new friend explains everything.
The thing is, he’s cursed. The creature, visible only to whoever it follows, has been stalking him since his failed sex with a past girlfriend. Appearance it is able to take absolutely any. It is transmitted only during intimacy, so his new target is Jay. If it touches a girl, then she faces instant death. After that, she runs away from the already former young man, and the creature slowly follows her.
An interesting part of this film is the tension of the slow chase. The creature is barely moving, tormenting the victim with anticipation. If typical killers want to quickly grab and kill the victim, and this monster is only slowly delirium nearby, forcing.
The girl tells her friends everything. It turns out that the monster can be beaten in different ways, but it will not bring harm. Friends do not see him, but Jay tells them his location. Skip most of the movie (for your interest).
At the very end, she and Paul (her lover) walk together. They kind of killed this monster, so the girl gladly gave herself to her beloved. That’s just behind them again stands this monster, which is already following Paul himself. The couple hasn’t seen anything yet, but it’s a matter of time.
Here is such an open ending awaits the viewer from the film It Follows.
The meaning of the movie It Follows 2014
In a way, It is the banter of typical horror films. There are no screamers here, the monster is in no hurry. Everything here is completely different from the usual “horror movies”.
And the topic of sex is given special and important attention. The fact is that ordinary horror films often insert this for the sake of half-naked beauties and interest in the film among teenagers, but here it’s a completely different matter. Sex here is not at all attractive, but vice versa. You can easily die from it.
Undoubtedly, many critics, and even simply viewers, have caught some kind of allusion here for sexually transmitted diseases, for example, AIDS. After all, he, too, is gradually attracted to a person, and you can find him through bed. But the problem is that real AIDS is not completely transmitted, but only infects one more person. As a result, if you do not start treatment or start, a person will die.
