It Follows brought a very original and terrifying monster to our screens. The Entity that once attached to you and follows until it can end you. The only way to save yourself is to pass it along to someone else... or is there another way? Is there a way to actually defeat the monster? Loyal Theorists, this will have to be one of my most clever solutions yet! Let's get SCARY!

If it always walks at a constant speed, you can probably write a program that tells you where it is at all times based in your location, length of stay, known routes and its walking speed. You'd probably have to recalibrate it every now so you can't avoid seeing it. But it would help a lot staying alive. You could even add a feature of how long you can stay in a certain area before it catches up. The coding is easy enough that it's doable by a 19 year old if they are willing to learn or find a peer who can do it.
Imagine the entity just gives up like 'urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh frick this imma go find another victim. All I'm doing at this point is walkind back and forth >:C'
Valente de Jesús
Valente de Jesús Aylar önce
The program is doable, the issue again is the resources and health management. There's only so much you can pay for transportation and allocation. And even if you're not willing to pay for that walking constantly even with small breaks on between would tear your health in a matter of days, staying outside also leaves you exposed to sicknesses and other dangers. The best solution I can think of is, that based on the behavior of the monster. It follows you in an Euclidean way, if there's an obstacle then it's pattern could be predicted with the Manhattan equation to find the fastest route around obstacles. It seems to be smarter than that tough. But is pretty safe to assume that it always follows the most optimal and direct route to you. With this in mind you could set up a route to keep travelling in circles, staying in all of your friends houses at some point of the day. It would be annoying for them but the protagonist's friends seem to cooperate. Then again I don't think the monster is as predictable as we assume.

Two things: 1. Getting an injectable tracker (like the type used for animals) and having a friend inject it into the Entity while you keep it's attention and direct them would take all of the guess work out of this. The main benefit to that is that you would then always be able to see EXACTLY where the Entity is. On top of that, it completely removes the guess works and margin for error, so you won't end up being blindsided one day because you messed up the math. 2. I love MatPat, but he seems to be ignoring one of the rules of the Entity here: it always walks in a straight line directly to you. It never follows roads, paths, or anything of the sort, but simply walks in the direction where it can feel you, only changing course to go around objects. This is good because it means that hills, buildings, and the like can very much slow it down, but also very bad because it makes it more unpredictable. You would have to figure out the exact path it would take from where you were previously, where it would run into obstacles, how long it would take to get around those obstacles, and plenty of other things as well. This is simply too many variables to keep track of. I honestly think that this is a very nice and simple solution, but one that will fail eventually due to simply not being able to predict things accurately every time. Not to mention that a single off day where you mess up one calculation (once you are used to the Entity enough to not worry enough to calculate things multiple times), and you are completely screwed. I think that putting a tracker in or on the Entity, and then monitoring it remotely is the best, and safest solution. Humans are way to flawed creatures for MatPat's system to work indefinitely after all

@filipesaul Paul weighs about 125lbs, him being thrown (or kicked) back means nothing. Cement doesn't dry it sets, and you'd use concrete (Cement + sand + aggregate). Concrete doesn't set instantly but it's heavy af and you can add large aggregate (3/8", 1/2", 3/4", etc rocks) to the mix - in which case there will be no "swimming" possible. You can also add Quik-set chemicals to make it set even faster. The strongest person in the world couldn't push 3' x 3' x 3' concrete off their body (1 ton...A 4' x 4' x 4' block of concrete = 2.4 tons), let alone above their head. All you'd need is a 10-12' or deeper hole around 4' x 4' wide and 2.5 - 3 yards of concrete. ($400)

Well, the monster was shown to be relatively intelligent. So he probably won't be so easy to get into the hole. And it can just walk/swim out of the cement (cement doesn't dry instantly, and the monster is shown to be relatively strong. Strong enough to break whatever's blocking his way out of the cement.

Small addition that you'd want the distance between work and home to be as the crow flies, it isn't likely the entity would be following along the same roads you're taking, it would probably cut through yards and fields and the like, and you may want to give yourself an extra hour or so before changing routes in case you have to stay at work longer than your scheduled shift

My biggest concern is the speed assumption. The Entity is sentient (often terrorizing it's mark). After experiencing the scheduled method of managing it, it could change its strategy. For example, it could walk extremely slowly towards you. Suppose it could reduce it's pace to a snails crawl (still moving towards you), then the calculations fall apart and it gets closer to you than your model predicts. If the entity times it correctly, it shows up when you're sleeping. There is evidence in the movie that it can change its speed. Specifically, when the entity gets on the roof and watches the protagonist run away.

Quick theory question: what happens if the most recent victim kills themself? It doesn't necessarily have to be caused by the STDemon, since someone could have it, not know about it, and just happen to off themselves before the demon kills them. Would the demon just break, since it wasn't what killed them? Or does it just not matter?

No animal is safe because 1) a lot of animals have short life spans 2) they get hunted and ended for food or apparel or simply for fun by humans or become prey of other animals so even if the entity doesn’t get to it, it would most likely pass away thus leading the entity back to you. 3) animals not being sentient enough to comprehend what’s happening will have no survival skills against the entity they wouldn’t even run away 4) no assurance that they would mate and their mates would mate and so forth in time for you to live a normal life. Especially since a lot of animals only mate during mating season. In short, animals aren’t reliable enough for you to put your life in their paws 🐾.

I mean I'd think moving to another continent would be a fairly good idea, you can't perfectly measure how long it would take the entity to get to you but if you estimated it based off of it's swimming speed which you'd have to determine somehow, and cut 15% - 25% off to be safe and moved in a hexagon or an octagon if might pay off, less time following a very strict routine with a chance of death at any slip up might help you think more calmly and figure out what to do next, if you go insane from the anxiety that you fucked up even a little bit you won't be able to run from that thing very well much less enjoy the rest of you life. If you move in an octagon or some other polygon with a lot of sides you won't have to worry as much about the entity cutting corners when you leave a bit early because you'll always move at the obtuse angle, if i used my brain correctly that'll make the path from somewhere on a side of the polygon to the second angle over shorter than if it were a right angle or an acute angle. that being said this would take a lot of money you'd need 6-8 different locations all over the globe, and we're also ignoring the person's ability to do that kind of math and while you could use a calculator figuring out the equation itself for trips across the ocean and difficult terrain might be an issue depending on their knowledge of math. One way to get that type of money would be sleeping with a rich person (if you could find one who's willing to) and then tell them what to do and that they'll die if they don't. Another way that's a little more far fetched would be going far away to buy yourself some time and building a home with no doors or windows. With running water and a garden you could probably survive for some time. The garden could have a glass ceiling (really strong glass i guess I mean you could potentially use bulletproof glass). You'd also need a ventilation system. Assuming this creature can't shapeshift into small animals, if you made the vents small enough your should be safe. Social interaction work and everything else could be handled the same way it is now: digitally. Or I could be completely wrong about all of this, meaning I just spent half an hour typing complete bullshit into a comment section of a half a year old video about a movie I haven't even watched.

You probably wouldnt even need to do that much work or take that many risks... just have it follow you to a government building... like a court or police station. While that may seem risky, you would have an immediate boost in armed manpower to deal with it.

@insomiablaze 1 not sure if this is bait but I'll take it anyway--they took on like 4 or 5 occasions and each one required more elaborate methods that the previous. They listened to the frequency of a cricket chirping to estimate the temperature, noticed birds that only lived in a few states, used trigonometry from the sunsets/sunrises to estimate the longitude and then mapped out the commercial plane flights overhead to finally pinpoint his location. There's a couple videos on here that detail all of it better than me if you are being genuine.

I know it's four months later, but what if a couple bounces the entity back and forth to each other so one can work while the other drives and then swaps?
Reversed Infinity
The most clever thing about this is that when you eventually pass away, ideally at old age, there would be few, if any, of the previous curse-bearers left alive. One end of the chain would be you, but you might be the other end as well. In just one lifetime, by performing this method flawlessly, the entity would hopefully cease to exist along with the chain of sexual encounters. Also, as the entity can be temporarily wounded, it is tempting to just run it through a wood chipper and see how long it takes to regenerate. Might give you a few extra hours in a pinch.

Interesting. 42,293 kilometres is relatively close to the circumference of earth at the equator (roughly 40,008 km). It means that in a single year, the entity could circumnavigate the entire globe if it were able to travel on water... I mean, oceans never prevented the spread of STDs. Wonder if that specific speed was intentional because of that reason?

Due to how it responds to natural barriers, you’d think that traveling somewhere over a large body of water would really help. We see it moving through an indoor pool, but imagine how long it would take to travel an ocean. Just rent a crappy one room apartment in Australia and spend your year going back and forth. Sydney is about 9,000 miles away from Detroit. Plenty of time to relax at each area until you have to travel back.

Well you could trap it in a hole, pour cement on it, then hook that cement and give it to a research center as quickly as possible, they will break through the cement and contain it, after doing countless tests as you would guess they would probably ship it to space, where it would endlessly float around

If the person you pass It to dies of something else, before the Entity finds them, does that break the chain? If so I've thought of a couple of plans. Unfortunately they involve murder, necrophilia or cannibalism.

Okay so I’m saying this with absolutely no research done, but if the entity follows someone SPECIFICALLY after a one night stand wouldn’t entering a healthy committed relationship and sleeping with your parter regularly fix the problem?

But what if you pass the curse on to the entity itself? It can not walk through walls, so it does not have infinite strength or anything, so you should be able to restraint it, at least long enough to curse it. If passing it on to animals is on the table, than that is not crossing any further lines.

Hey I have an idea 🤔 If the Entity can only be summoned if you have a one night stand with someone, what if you built a relationship with your said one night stand? First thing I was bothered with the movie is that Jay is 19. I thought it followed only teens that...had a "passionate night". If It can still follow you if you are 18 and more, what if you can just built a relationship with them? Is It still able to to follow you when you did with your one night stand that would be supposedly your future partner?? If yes, well then, I'm out of ideas 😕

The biggest advantage you have is that the entity is physical and would be easily provable to those unaffected. Instead of going at this alone, you would have hordes of people coming up with various plans to get rid of it and without a doubt government powers would get involved. Collective manpower could find the curse's origin and find out how to break it, or if not, make life with the entity a livable one.

The problem with going public is that the creature is a relentless killer that is also a master of disguise. Every government, crime syndicate or hate group on the planet and more than one or two corporations (because they can be all three) would take an unhealthy interest in trying to weaponise it. Then they could tracelessly eliminate inconvenient people.
