“If her character dies, she dies…”
Follow Her released on demand on June 2nd 2023. The erotic-thriller-horror film stars Dani Barker, Luke Cook, and Mark Moses. It runs for approximately an hour and thirty minutes.
An aspiring actress and live streamer named Jess responds to a job to help write an erotic thriller screenplay in a remote location, but things take a twisted turn when she ends up caught in the middle of the creator’s quest for revenge.
Here is the trailer:
Follow Her is a solid mix of Cam and Fresh, presenting us with a smart and entertaining erotic thriller that has plenty of twists and turns. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
In particular, Luke Cook was out of this world as Tom! There weren’t too many characters in this one so our two main leads needed to steal the show and they did so with flair. It was fun seeing where the twists went and I really thought both actors did their part and then some.
Smart take on the social media genre…
I recently enjoyed Influencer for the same reason, but I have to give it up to Follow Her as well. This movie took a real look at the dangers and problems with live streaming and social media. I love that they didn’t hold back, making the shocking moments that much more petrifying since I could see some of this actually happening in real life.
This film nailed the vibe it was going for and that last half hour was incredible!
Takes a little while to kick into high gear…
The pacing was a little sluggish in the beginning. I was interested, but my attention was fading slightly until we got to the final act. There wasn’t too much set-up but I do think that we could have moved things along a little quicker once Jess arrived at the house. The fetish stuff was a bit silly, but it made sense with Jess’s line of work so I’ll go with it.
The twists were also a little outrageous, but still fun overall. I’m all for a film taking a risk and I didn’t mind them, but they did disrupt the overall tone of the movie slightly and felt a little abrupt. That being said, they weren’t predictable so this wasn’t a major con.
So am I in or out?
Follow Her is satisfying in all the right ways with plenty of twists to keep you hooked until the very end.
I really enjoy smart and self-aware horror films and I think that Follow Her checked off all the boxes I was looking for and then some.
I’d absolutely recommend a watch if you’re a horror fan!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
My supernatural thriller Girl Number Thirteen is out now! I hope you enjoy!
