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? Loyal Theorists, this will have to be one of my most clever solutions yet! Let's get SCARY!

I don't think you take into account the Rocky Mountains in your estimate, or even the Sierras. It would take longer for it to get over the mountains than walking in a city or flat land/foothills.

Or you can go to your local police station wait until the entity is almost there then go in and say “there’s a crazy stalker after me”. The entity will break the door or window to get to you. And boom there in jail.

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.

i feel like this could work for maybe a few months but i think you would mess up at some point, maybe you got drunk and crashed, maybe your car breaks down, life can get in the way. and it would be hard to maintain it for to long. i think you forgot that it can go invisible making it hard to track and give you a sense of security.

Ah yes, a theory about a film which involves an entity who follows you and kills you unless you pass the curse on to to someone else Corona follows, my dude
Sanderooh Päev tagasi
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.

Your mention that money is an issue is an important one. I'm pretty sure one of the themes of this movie is being stuck with the circumstances you are born into. None of these kids have much hope of ever leaving this town. And they are affected by all of the problems that are part of this town. And they have a small limited circle of people that they are ever gonna have relationships with. And going to the University of Detroit is never going to give her a leg up on this life. She's trying to get past her circumstances - sleeping with the new guy who's from somewhere else, going to college, etc. - but the cards are stacked against her. Her only hope is band together with the other members of her community, because that's how people in these go nowhere towns are able to survive it's terrible problems.

So... here's a wild thought. Since the entity is humanoid, what if you managed to do the entity? It certainly can't chase itself now could it? Wouldn't make for the hottest date, but what if it imploded?

Down to earth practical plans for it are great and all but the ridiculous stuff is much more fun. Are there any stats on its ability to climb? Two words, Tree House lol. Digging a home into the side of one of those gimongous California redwoods would be dope, and if you build it right you should easily be able to keep the entity out of it.

An important part of your STDC treatment is to have group of 3. You, the person that gave it to you and a trusted friend who has not received the curse. That way you have another person who can see it and one person who can't to confirm the suspicious person walking toward you isn't visible to normies.

Because it's a horror movie you'd discover that it's rate of approach changes over time and after taking enough measurements of the entity's speed you find that the approach rate is becoming exponentially faster with each passing day.
