    Saw it today.

    If you're a fan of John Carpenter horror you'll really like this, right down to the soundtrack. The time setting was very vague but this almost could've been a long lost Carpenter movie filmed in the late 70's early 80's.

    It's about a curse that is passed on from someone you have sex with. The curse is that something follows you, in the form of random people that only you can see, until it catches you and kills you. It only walks so you can run or even drive far away to buy yourself time. If it kills you the curse is reverted to the person who gave it to you.

    Excellent movie. I'd almost go so far as to call it a new horror classic.

    @AnimalGod @freds @Stevie it's set in Michigan in such places as Clawson High School, the old Packard plant and a lot of old Detroit area neighborhoods.

    Here's some music from it, like I said, very John Carperter-ish

    Give it more of a challenge: there are cartoons that exceed Final Destination.
