Name: Get Out (2017)
Genre: Horror, Mystery
Tagline: “Just because you’re invited, doesn’t mean you’re welcome.”
PLOT : A young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend’s mysterious family estate.
MY TAKE : I have watched this film twice already. Once by myself, then again with MDI. And for once, she didn’t figure it out twenty minutes in! When I heard that Jordan Peele had mad a horror movie I assumed it would be a horror comedy, but I was wrong. The film is fantastic! I know it is getting a large spotlight for the racial aspect, but if everyone in the film was the same colour, it would still be amazingly frightening.
Peele has written a wild masterpiece with twists I didn’t see coming. He also couldn’t have picked a better cast. Bradley Whitford & Catherine Keener do a fantastic job of playing equal parts “normal strange parents” and “sinister as fuck!” Not to be out done by their children played by Allison Williams and Caleb Landry Jones. I wanted to soccer kick Williams by the end film. Which is a compliment to her amazing acting. This is all leading to the man of the hour Daniel Kaluuya. Daniel plays his role EXACTLY how I think anyone in his position would. Try to not make judgements while still being guarded, and rightly so.
Recently I found out there was an alternate original ending, and it’s actually the way I thought the film would/should have ended. Both are very effective, but having that last little bit of humanity stomped out would have been the icing on the cake. If you haven’t seen it , Check it out!
