Jordan Peele makes his directoral debut in this 2017 psychological horror, starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams and Bradley Whitford. Though Peele had previously only worked in comedy, the critical response Get Out recieved was tantamount to what a veteran horror director would have likely recieved, with many impressed by how the film “weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.”
The film follows Chris, a talented black photographer, as he and his girlfriend Rose visit her family upstate. After their journey is interrupted by the strange pseudo-racist behaviour of a local police officer, the pair arrive at Rose’s family’s home. After experience more weird and frankly frightening behaviour, Chris begins to wonder whether it was such a good idea following his girlfriend upstate was such a good idea after all as the mystery of the town deepens and a sinister conspiracy is unveiled.
