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!

    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.

    Why wouldn't a stainless steel box with a wall thickness of about 5 inches work; welding the doors shut at the same time after tricking it inside? Then encase it in 3 feet of reinforced concrete. Then after the entire chain is deceased the entity has no other person to go eliminate and thus it's purpose is null and void. Win.

    Question though would you still need to time the gas and you don't know about traffic plus you would have to have a good sleeping schedule to make sure you wake up on time so you wont die from the entity so in conclusion there would have to add more math and guess the way you would have to go If one takes up way to much time or consistency. (sorry for the bad spelling if there is any)

    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.

    since it all ways fallows you you can trap it in a deep pit and fill it with concrete one time payment of 1 to 3 grand depending on the pit. You can keep it from climbing up by butting a cap on it then fill it up with concrete. The creature has a physical form so it will be trapped forever even if its mostly encased it isn’t going anywhere just top the remaining part with concrete.

    Just go to jail if the entity doesn’t interact with other people then he can’t visit you in jail. Then you would have to be in jail the rest of your life. But it’s better then death. And possibly you could use your time in jail to plan for the entity.

    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?
