But after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone, something, is following her. Faced with this burden, Jay and her friends must find a way to escape the horrors, that seem to be only a few steps behind.Written by

Near the end of the film, Paul fires a small handgun several times and hits the 'follower' in the head, knocks him out. The scene clearly reveals that bullets hit the pool surface at an approximate angle of 30 degrees, and judging by the actors' height, bullets travel at least 9-10 feet in the water before they hit the target. It would be impossible for those bullets, that are fired at an extreme angle, to wound someone after traveling so far in the water. In fact, MythBusters did an episode investigating the effects of guns fired at targets that are underwater, they proved the water provides protection. See more »

A film which you can't leave behind
A simple but clever premise which draws upon horror traditions, especially the work of John Carpenter, is sustained throughout the movie to produce a memorable and tense 100 minutes.
The subject of sex, sexuality, disease, the transition into adulthood (you sense the director believes too early transition) and relationships between friends and family are played out against the backdrop of a once great Detroit. The films opening scenes summarise the movie perfectly and convey the central themes of the movie expertly.
Essentially a horror movie with a strong idea and 'conservative' message its strength lies in the realistic portrayal of teenagers, their relationships and what they think is the right thing to do faced with the horror that faces them and to an extent cannot escape.
