Get Out will go down as one of 2017’s best films.
It perfectly blends the horror, mystery and comedy genres in a thought provoking thrill ride.
Without giving much away, the film is about Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) a young African-American, who visits his caucasian girlfriends’s family estate for the weekend.
Things seem to be going fine until Chris begins to sense something is wrong. What unfolds is truely horrifying.
The film excels on all fronts but what really stands out is the social commentary that it provides on race.
It’s done in a completely absorbing and truely terrifying way, providing the audience with a unique take on the real life horror of racial profiling.
You’ll leave the movie completely creeped out… and will never stir your tea the same way again.
Get Out, directed by Jordan Peele and starring Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams, is released on May 4.
