Both known and forgotten horror films of the 20th Century

Well, this was I must say a very interesting addition to this year's horror movie collection. The film is about a young woman named Jay (Maika Monroe), whom after a sexual encounter with a young man she was dating, starts seeing people, or what the audience thinks are people, follow her in an aggressive manner. The young man, named Jeff (Jake Weary) tells Jay immediately what is going to start happening to her, because it happened to him, and tells her the only way for her get rid of it is if she sleeps with someone else. Jay eventually enlists the help of her sister, Kelly (Lili Sepe), and a few friends to help her figure out what is going on, and how to stop it without spreading it to anyone else. The film is unique in that it never really gives an explanation as to how this type of supernatural STD began, and it leaves the audience on a rather ambiguous ending. At first, I wasn't sure if I even like the film because of the ending, but after some reflection I realized that I actually really liked the film. The movie relies a lot on camera angles, old fashion horror movie tricks (such as an invisible being lifting up Jay's hair, and none of the other characters can see who is doing it), and eerie old broken down neighbourhoods as part of the creepy setting. One other thing that I really liked was how most of the homes shown in the film were not modernized, and looked like they could pass for homes that were set up in the late eighties, early nineties. The reason why I liked this is because it's how a lot homes still look like because of the lack of resources from the families that own them; this in my opinion lends credibility to the realism of the film. The music score of the film is also awesome because it adds to the eeriness of the film, that will leave goosebumps on your skin. Great film, recommended to any horror movie fans.
