Major update as one of the most underrated horror films of all time is getting a sequel

Lead actor Maika Monroe says she is 'so excited'

The sequel to a cult horror film is in the works and it promises to be 'so f**king good'.

Released in 2014, the original movie - directed by David Robert Mitchell - follows teenager Jay (Maika Monroe) who sleeps with her new boyfriend, Hugh (Jake Weary), for the first time.

Soon after, Jay realises she has become victim to a fatal curse that is passed from victim to victim via sexual intercourse.

As death creeps closer and closer, Jay's friends don't believe her paranoia, that's until they start seeing what unfolds.

Titled It Follows, you can check out the trailer below:

The film ended up being Monroe's breakout role and has an impressive Rotten Tomatoes score of 95 percent.

Ahead of the highly anticipated sequel, the now 31-year-old actor has provided an exciting update.

And amid the anticipation, the movie is rumoured to be called They Follow, promising to be 'bigger and darker'.

Monroe told Collider Ladies Night: "But as you know with the first film, I'm not taking any credit in this, David is brilliant. I mean, he is brilliant.

"The whole movie transformed at that point. It was changing the game in the genre, and he wouldn't ever make a sequel if he didn't think it was going to top it.

"He's very specific, turns down so many… He just knows what he wants to do and what he wants to make.

"I mean, at first I'm like, 'Oh, a sequel? Where are we going to go here?'

"And I read it, and it's just so f**king good. It's so good. I'm so excited.

"I think where you'll meet Jay at this point is maybe not what's expected, but it's so cool.

"It's just, of course, as everyone says for sequels, literally, though, is just bigger and darker and more f**ked up. Reading it was the craziest thing ever."

Despite the hype, the original film received an above average score of 66 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

"They did a great job of selling the fear of someone following you. Yeah it's got a teenage feel to it, but it was nonetheless creepy. The storyline flowed but it wasn’t my favourite. How they sold the fear overshadowed any issue I had with the plot," one viewer thought.

Another added: "Very predictable from the start and to be honest, the plot is boring. Beside those flaws, the directing was pretty decent and I really enjoyed the 'teenage horror' atmosphere. I just wish there was variety of character ark and a little more tension."

Meanwhile, legendary filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, has encouraged people to watch it without knowing the story.

In a resurfaced clip on social media, he said: "A film that I really liked, I don't know if it's come out in England yet, but it was a really clever horror film that came out in America.

"It's really good however, one of the problems with the film to some degree is the fact that people want to tell the story in order to get people to go see it."

Maybe he's right?
