Visit Films holds international rights to the story of a teenager’s bizarre sexual encounter that leaves her convinced she is being followed by an unknown entity.

Animal Kingdom and Northern Lights financed It Follows and Rebecca Green, Laura D Smith, Mitchell, David Kaplan and Erik Rommesmo produced.

Maika Monroe leads an ensemble cast of Keir Gilchrist, Daniel Zovatto, Jake Weary, Olivia Luccardi and Lili Sepe.
