Jay Height, a carefree college student living in Michigan, goes on a movie date with a boy named Hugh. When they are inside the theater, Hugh spots a young woman at the entrance. He points her out to Jay, but she cannot see her. Hugh becomes afraid and demands that he and Jay leave the theater. On another date, Hugh and Jay have sex in his car, before he incapacitates her with chloroform.
Jay wakes up tied to a wheelchair and Hugh explains that he has passed to her a curse through sex. He informs her that an entity, which can look like anyone and can only be seen by those with the curse, will pursue Jay at walking pace. If it catches her, it will kill her and then go back after the person who passed it to her. Hugh implores that she sleep with someone else as soon as she can to be rid of it. A naked woman emerges from the nearby woods and approaches them, and Hugh drops Jay off at home.
At school, Jay encounters an old woman in a night gown slowly approaching her and flees to where her sister, Kelly, works. Jay’s sister and her friends Yara and Paul, who has a crush on Jay, decide to help and spend the night to keep watch. That night, the kitchen window is heard shattering. Paul investigates but sees no one; Jay sees a half-naked and bloodied woman walking toward her. The others cannot see the entity. When a tall man with gouged-out eyes enters the bedroom, Jay flees the house to a nearby playground.
Greg, the neighbor, drives them to Hugh’s house, now abandoned, where they find a high school picture of him. With the help of the high school, they discover that Hugh’s real name is Jeff Redmond and trace him to his mother’s address, where he is living. Jeff informs them he believes he got the curse from a one-night stand and reiterates that Jay has to have sex with someone to get rid of it. They drive to Greg’s lakehouse, where Jay learns to fire a gun. The entity catches up to her and attacks Jay on the shore. She shoots it, momentarily incapacitating it, and escapes in Greg’s car, crashing into a cornfield. She wakes up in the hospital with a broken arm, surrounded by her mother and friends.
