Consequence Podcast Network’s weekly series Psychoanalysis takes an in-depth look at different mental health topics through the lens of horror. Today, Jenn, Mike, and Lara are joined at the pool by special guest Dax Ebaben from the Watched Once, Never Again podcast for a comfort horror episode on the 2014 psychological horror film, It Follows.
They’ll unpack David Robert Mitchell’s eerie nightmare from several different perspectives and examine the underlying depictions of trauma and consent. We may disagree on whether Paul is a hero, villain, or something in between, but we love the symbolism of healing water and the film’s visual language. And we all want a shell reader.
