Get Out is a 2017 horror film, directed by Jordan Peele, and starring Daniel Kaluuya and Addison Williams. It follows an African American photographer who visits his white girlfriends’s family, soon however, it’s revealed the family may have sinister plans for him. This a fantastic horror movie, and it’s also very well directed. However, I don’t particularly like the twist or ending, as they both seem strange in this film.
Get Out follows Chris, an African American photographer. He decides to visit his new girlfriend Rose’s parents. This turns out to be a mistake however, as her parents seem to have sinister intentions for Chris.
This movie is fantastically directed. Jordan Peele did an excellent job with maintaining tension throughout scenes, as well as placing hidden details within the movie that foreshadow the plot. The acting in this movie is also amazing. Daniel Kaluuya has some scenes that are really a testament to his ability. Additionally, there’s one scene where Georgina, the maid of the house is smiling widely while sobbing at the same time, and it’s an incredible scene. This movie also presents racism in America very well, although the twist that occurs, in my eyes at least, undermines this theme.
There’s a twist towards the end of the movie there’s a twist straight of science fiction. Personally, I found it out of place in a movie so grounded in our modern world like this. I also felt it undermined the theme of racism throughout the film.
I liked Get Out. Jordan Peele is an excellent Director, and I think overall he knocked it out of the park with this film. It’s a refreshing take on the horror genre, and I enjoyed it a lot.
