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

All Critics (218) | Top Critics (50)

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.

What makes Get Out more than just a slam-bang scarefest is that, in its own darkly satiric way, it is also a movie about racial paranoia that captures the zeitgeist in ways that many more "prestigious" movies don't.

Jordan Peele makes his directing debut with a horror movie that sticks closely to genre convention even as its ribbing of white liberals hardens into a social point.

Following Oscar's pomp and self-importance, viewing Jordan Peele's fiercely entertaining thriller offers the perfect awards hangover cure. Audiences leave the theater shaken and stirred.

Wait for those moments, scattered throughout the action, when the winces quicken into jolts and jumps; and consider how much is packed into Peele's terrific title.

Cultural appropriation shifts from 'problematic' to 'horrific' in writer-director Jordan Peele's sharp take on the scary world of stuff white people like.

Audience Reviews for Get Out

This film works incredibly well as a comedy, horror, or psychological thriller. Almost too well as I occasionally found myself wishing it would pick a lane and drive it home. In the end, however, I'm glad it didn't. This movie had too many points to make to keep things simple. Kaluuya and Williams put on fine performances, but Peele proves to be the mastermind, getting every little directorial detail right in what is sure to be one of the best films on 2017.

One that I think will require a rewatch. Whilst I felt somewhat disappointed by the conclusion and revelation to the story, it is nevertheless an interesting dark comedy/thriller.
