Movie Review: Get Out (2017)

Get Out is a horror movie directed by Jordan Peele about a young African American male (Daniel Kaluuya) who goes to visit his white girlfriend’s (Allison Williams) parents’ house for a weekend. He is nervous that there may be racial tensions when her parents find out that he is black, despite her reassurance that everything will be fine. However, once they arrive, he not only finds out that he’s being treated differently, but realizes there is something far more mysterious about the family.

First off, I liked that this movie was not afraid to explore the racial tensions that unfortunately still exist in the United States today. Racism was a key theme throughout this movie and it was blended in perfectly to the horror dynamic in a way that I haven’t seen horror movies do before. I also enjoyed the psychological aspect that made this movie so thrilling. Instead of mixing several jump scares to make this movie terrifying, there was a slow realization throughout the movie about what was actually happening which kept the audience on edge throughout the entire movie. Overall, I thought Get Out was really well done movie and certainly something unique that we haven’t seen before. It starts off a little bit slow in the beginning, but the camera angles and the music were so well done that you could experience exactly what the main character was thinking even if he didn’t say anything most of the time. I also thought the ending was really good and tied things up, while also not being too obvious about how it was going to end.

IMDB: 8.3/10
Rotten Tomatoes: 99% critics, 89% audience
My Rating: 8.7/10
