I watched Get Out for the first time yesterday and to my surprise it was an amazing movie. It has a perfect blend of horror and comedy wrapped up into one psychological thriller that nicks at our subconscious as black men and women. That’s not to say that all white people have ulterior motives but this story really brought out many fears black people have whether it’s innate in us to believe it.
The story starts with a young black Photographer named Chris and his new Girlfriend Rose which happens to be white. And it’s a fresh new relationship and thus Rose plans to take Chris to get away from the city and take him to meet her parents. And at first it’s awkward but quirky as Chris is thrown into a weird situation with Rose’s Liberal parents. But as time goes on the strange occurrences and mind boggling coincidences spiral into a literal nightmare for Chris; As he descends into a madhouse from hell with a white family straight out of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Get Out has many subliminal messages towards the movie going audience. Whether this was intentional or not by the first time film creator Jordan Peele it has moments of lighthearted humor delivered by Chris’s TSA friend Rod to bring a charm to a suspenseful horror show.
The messages to me was that beware strange white people in certain venues when you’re the lone black man. Also beware people trying to steal your organs and be aware of your surrounding you may end up missing.
All in all towards the end of the movie begins a fight for Chris’s life and escape from his supposed girlfriend’s home and the family from hell. In an insane climax which was fun to watch your rooting for Chris to escape his tormentors. The nail biting terror and suspense you’re on the edge of your seat, hoping he can get away from these crazy people. This movie is worth buying on Blu-Ray and DVD you won’t go wrong.
5 out of 5 stars
