At this point, I may well sound like a blindly loyal fanboy to Second Sight, bestowing nothing but the most intense superlatives upon every single one of their releases. But there’s no rose-tinted glasses on me. Part of me even wants them to miss, just once, so that I can have a break from trying to find new ways of saying the same thing – Second Sight are the most passionate and consistently impressive distributors of physical media. They are such champions of the home video format, and it shows in every release. Everything they do is perfection; the choice of films, the presentations and transfers, the packaging, the special features and associated extras (art cards, books, etc.) are all nothing short of flawless.
Their latest release is 2014’s It Follows, a modern horror masterpiece that almost 10 years on is still widely discussed as one of the best supernatural chillers of recent times. It’s an impeccable film, and Second Sight’s release is a revelation – their 4K master (approved by director David Robert Mitchell) and Dolby Atmos track are phenomenal. I just… I don’t know how they do it. How do they find the time to do so many releases that are all to this astronomically high standard. They’re masters of media and we worship them, as you all should.
A young woman is followed by a terrifying supernatural force after a sexual encounter with her new boyfriend.
