It wasn’t long ago we sat down with Maika Monroe to discuss her preceding endeavour The Guest. Now, she’s back on UK soil promoting her latest venture – the harrowing, innovative horror production It Follows. It seems that the chilling atmosphere and tone to this feature extended to the set, as Monroe explains to us why this shoot was the most intense of her career so far. We also discussed…

– What attracted her to the project

– On David Robert Mitchell’s last film, The Myth of the American Sleepover

– The difficulties in finding strong female roles

– Wanting to try her hand in different genres

– Whether It Follows scares her…

– The atmosphere on set

– On her next project, The Tribes of Palos Verdes

It Follows is released on February 27th.
