When a bike courier has a bad accident outside of the motel where her mother died, things get strange.

Watching Cody Calahan’s film, I couldn’t help but think of It Follows (2014). To be sure, the ‘80s throwback trend is nothing new anymore, and the story itself doesn’t call to mind David Robert Mitchell’s modern classic, but there’s a pervading feeling that you’ve seen this all before. The problem isn’t even that it’s derivative, but that it doesn’t pull it off.
