Movie Info

Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, 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 could have never imagined.

Critic Reviews for Get Out

This brilliantly provocative first feature from comic turned writer-director Jordan Peele proves that the best way to get satire to a mass audience is to call it horror.

Kudos to Peele for tackling a painful subject in such a massively entertaining and thoroughly memorable fashion. [Full review in Japanese]

It's a game-changer.

It's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner made over in the spirit of Rosemary's Baby, with accessories inspired by Meet the Fockers.

May 3, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

By focusing the storyline on a particular form of racism -- the kind that's often disguised as peculiar envy -- Get Out reveals something more insidious.

Mar 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa.

Audience Reviews for Get Out

Very clever, brilliantly written and wonderfully uncomfortable neo horror movie, challenging racial stereotypes and viewer' expectations with almost every scene. The acting is as outstanding as the premise and the realization. A pretty wild and fun ride, not without humor but also a pretty gory final act. One of the freshest horror thrillers of recent years and deserving of all the praise it is getting.

Intense, thrilling, and very funny. One of the best "horror" movies I can remember.

A weekend getaway to meet the new girlfriend's parents is a horrific consideration for most guys no matter what the situation but Jordan Peele's debut squeezes this chestnut as if it were a bad comedy. This is a decent thrill ride with male paranoia as the fuel for the engine.
