What happened in the previous movie?

In the first movie, Jay had to deal with an unyielding supernatural force that followed her around after she had intercourse with her boyfriend, Jake Weary. This nameless, unseen force sought to murder the next victim of a string of ominous-seeming sex encounters.

Jay had to make the difficult decision to either live her entire life avoiding the beast or pass the curse on to another victim. “It Follows” ended with an open ending in which Jay and her companion Paul, played by Keir Gilchrist, had a sexual act and hesitantly decided to face whatever consequences might come their way together, following multiple failed attempts to defeat the creature.

After making its debut at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, “It Follows” was later acquired by Radius-TWC for distribution. Two weeks after a successful limited release, on March 27, 2015, the movie received a wider release. Critics praised the film for its uniqueness and Maika Monroe’s performance in it. Despite having been made on a $1.3 million budget, it became a global success, making $23.3 million.

Recently, Maika Monroe wrapped up production for Oz Perkins’ film “Longlegs,” which also stars Nicolas Cage. This movie will be released by Neon in 2024. She has performed in Neil Jordan’s “Greta,” and she has also made appearances in “Honey Boy” and “Hot Summer Nights.”
