It Follows brought a very original and terrifying monster to our screens. The Entity that once attached to you and follows until it can end you. The only way to save yourself is to pass it along to someone else... or is there another way? Is there a way to actually defeat the monster?

    I have a good idea about a film theory episode on the Simpsons. Bart is actually an evil genius. Also, I already have two pieces of evidence, the first one is on episode 12 season 1. Bart figures out easily in a few seconds that Sideshow Bob framed Krusty, and he did it as fast as Sherlock Holmes. My second piece of evidence is that on episode 11 he learns french without a teacher and he wasn't even spoken to in french that much all in only 3 months so he was basically like Matilda.

    i remember Film Herald had a really solid idea of luring the creature into a large, unscalable pit and filling it with quick-drying cement. if you drive far enough to buy yourself maybe a couple days time and purchase a shovel and the cement, you should be able to trap it since it seems to still loosely abide by the natural laws of mortal beings like being trapped within a solid object.

    Before I watch the video I’m calling it. The creature walks at what looks to be about 3 mph constantly. To ensure you can live the rest of your life without worrying about it you would need it to stall for about 80 years just to be safe. That’s about 702,000 hours. Since the creature moves at about 3mph we can multiply those two numbers to get roughly 2,500,000 miles. This means that there is no way to move to a part of the world that would buy you enough time to live your life without fear of it.

    Hang on, I fail to see something. If the entity starts at your house, but your job isn't far away enough, taking a longer route to get there really wouldn't matter, since it would just adjust its course halfway through. You'd need to drive further away first, wait for the entity to get there, and only then head off to work, right?

    I mean I would have just trapped it in a cage. Lure it into a 2 way cage and have my friends slam the doors shut as soon as I’m out the other side. Then chain it up and drop it at the bottom of the nearest body of water. Even if it can break out, it’ll take a long time to do so. It’ll take a lot of money to do it. But it’s worth it. Alternatively, try really hard to develop super powers.
