‘Get out while you still can.’

The Follower is a 2017 French supernatural horror film, shot in English, directed by Kévin Mendiboure (The Photographer [short – watch below]) with Nicolas Shake, Chloé Dumas (Dracula Reborn), Benjamin Polounovsky, Boris Anderssen Comar and Peter Lamarque.

Internet video blogger David Baker is invited by an eccentric and lonely woman to investigate paranormal occurrences in her home. She instructs him that he is free to film everywhere… except for her grandmother’s room upstairs.

At first, he sees nothing. However, things take a ghostly turn as he slowly discovers that things aren’t what they seem and – even more disturbing – something may very well want to follow him out…


“For the majority of the film it is focused on Carol (Chloé Dumas) and David Baker (Nicolas Shake). Both play their respective roles superbly, but Chloé Dumas takes her role to a whole new level with what can be described as schizophrenic behaviour. Beautifully shot, this indie film has no pacing issues and the editing is spot on leaving no time for breathers in between the supernatural elements.” Peter Hopkins, Horror Screams Video Vault
