A Quick Review of GET OUT
I didn’t get the chance to see Jordan Peele’s movie, GET OUT, in the theater. There were a few other movies the BF and I were interested in, so we saved this one to either rent or buy from home. This week we had some time and got to finally see it.
As a horror fan, I found this movie to be scary in the fact that racism is still so prevalent today. I don’t want to go into much detail about the movie, because it will totally give away the plot, but just be prepared to think about horror in a different way. And BTW–there is a little political undertone to this piece too…
My advice–SEE IT!!!
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
I AM LIVE-TWEETING IT ON FRIDAY AND I HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET I AM SO EXCITED!
