The executive producers are Mark Johnson, Alex Johnson, John C. Arnold, R. Lee Arnold, Ylian Alfaro Snyder, A.B. Lancaster, and Jerry Gilliam.

Ain't it Cool News  Directed with a delicate and gentle hand, Followed is probably the most unexpected horror surprise I’ve seen in quite a while. The final moments, set to a song called ‘Glory’ by Essie Jain, will warm even the coldest and deadest of hearts. I don’t know if Followed is ever going to be a feature film, but it certainly has enough going for it to warrant one.

Daily Film Fix  Kicklighter fashions a complex narrative using McIntosh’s fine writing as its foundation. Followed looks great, is well-acted, and should provide Kicklighter with an excellent calling card.

Macon Telegraph  'The state of Georgia is fast growing into a very influential film location,' said Kicklighter, a Georgia native, who graduated from Georgia Southern in May. 'I want to showcase the state that I live in and that I’m from.' While the film will be largely based on McIntosh’s work, there have been some slight tweaks to the story, Kicklighter said. McIntosh, who was at the park to watch the filming Saturday, said he has enjoyed seeing the changes, some of which he wishes he would have thought of for the written story.

FilmInk Australia  Zombies are the cinema trend that just won’t die! They have been lumbering, moaning and even occasionally running for some time now. Despite their refusal to let the public’s attention out of their clammy grip, zombie films are noted more for their gruesome scenes of violence than social commentary. US director James Kicklighter’s Followed, however, offers something different.

Macon Magazine  James Kicklighter, a 22-year-old from Bellville, is inevitably tagged as a prodigy, wunderkind and lovable ‘old soul,’ with eight movies to his credit, more in the works and a shelf of awards from indie festivals and arts organizations around the world.

Blank Stage Studios  Kicklighter said, 'I admit, when I first read the script, I had to read it a few times. Then, I went to the source material and read and re-read the short story. I did all of this for a good six hours, taking notes while attempting to wrap my head around the concept. It was simply different from any Zombie story that I was familiar with.'

Liberty Life Magazine  Whether documentary or feature film, Kicklighter’s theatrical proclivities infuence his work. 'I really like the relationship and character dramas. I’m a fan of stories that take people’s reationships and examine them in different ways,' he says. 'Themes that have something to say about characters and change the way they perceive themselves … tie back into the type of films we have in mind ... they’re always about relationships between the character and the concept.'
