Them That Follow
Provided by Metacritic.com
The filmmakers let the story slither at its own rhythm, so that the magnitude of the psychological control can be fully exposed. To accomplish that, their superb cast guides the film through a poisonous doctrine taken not from the pages of imagination but from real American folklore.
In the last act, Poulton and Savage’s long fuse explodes, and they get to prove they’ve made a hell of a picture.
The Hollywood Reporter
The cast commit gamely to the material, although the script is a bit underwritten, making sudden shifts in character a little odd and a bit random.
As grimly gripping as Them That Follow is, the proceedings have a stacked-deck quality to them, which keeps this compelling tale from being truly galvanising.
While the film tries to be a shocking window into another world, it plays more like an agog piece of tourism.
The Film Stage
Them That Follow has a compelling hook, but what’s left is nothing but an unfortunately wasted opportunity.
It’s competently made but utterly vacant, a forgettable indie fading fast.
