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!

  • One of the complications is whether the entity walks in a straight line towards you or not. If you lived in Florida and flew to South America would it take the long way and walk to you or go through the ocean? Or what about putting incredibly difficult terrain like a mountain or the Grand Canyon between you and it. Would it jump to the bottom of the canyon and climb up the other side or walk around? In short, what's the pathing strategy of the entity?

  • What happens when you grow old and die, and assuming if you were in a sexually active relationship no one was cheating and the people who passed it to you and so on and so on are all also dead. Does the entity just die? Does it pass through child birth? This leads to hypotheticals and I need hypotheticals answeree.

  • There is no fewer reckless teenagers, LOL and no bias based on bitter experiences it’s just fact. Even myself, besides, anybody is reckless in their own way especially as a teenager and those statistics you looked at are total bullshit (not that I blame ya to be real) but apart from quarantine their was a wide array teens sowing their wild oats if you know what I mean. Also toxic parents can be accepting and still be very toxic because now there’s no respect established in the household but these will also be the same parents command things and whoop kids without giving context in the same week which causes the average child to be a tad bit sociopathic and if you live in The “humbling” parts of LA (like myself) your definitely FUCKED.

  • I don't think it's ever asked in the show, but if it can be harmed, them certainly obliterating it into pieces is a solution? It's gruesome, but I feel like this issue can be solved via a woodchipper or very heavy slab of stone. If that doesn't work, but it can be stopped by kinetic movement (despite being immortal) then still, submerging it in cement or something feels like it could also stop the creature, at least long enough for all the cursed people to die out. Even that feels like a strange caveat, perhaps going on a murder spree to find all the people cursed, thus ending it with yourself.

  • Why not go to a cop or a police officer and throw paint on the entity- something they did in the movie. Tell the cop about the dangerous person who has been following you and let them try to take it out. Watch as the situation is either sorted out or escalates to a point that the military and others know about the entity and try to take it out for you.

  • Hold on: Matpat, have you done the math on weather or not the entity is likely to come back to you? Think about it, you only have to sleep with one person and tell that person to also sleep with someone else and so on. The key here is to only pick morally questionable partners- if they all pass it on diligently then no-one ever has to die. You'd have to deal with the entity for a couple of days or a week before passing it on so that lowers your chance of dying. The only recommendation I'd make is to keep your eye on the obituary- but if its not come back after a couple of weeks it likely never will.

Like if you've seen it break a wooden door and a glass but if you found out the limit of what it can break through, you would then be able to work out a way to trap it until long after you've died of old age.

  • Isn't what the guy did, in the end, make more sense? By sleeping with a hooker she is highly likely to sleep with someone else. As long as he lets her know hey when you see it following you, time to sleep with someone else. Would sleeping with more than one change anything? Like, say he slept with one hooker then slept with another before she died? Though suppose it wouldn't work because he no longer has it following him. Ultimately the way to stop the entity would be to just let it go all the way down the line so there are no more people to go after. IT will never happen because I doubt everyone up the line would just accept it considering they passed it on to begin with.
