It will probably end up being the best horror movie of the year, and easily one of the best of the past five years.
March 23, 2017
Smart, accessible, pin-sharp, and also a more authentic, disturbing genre-tweaking pic about slavery and the antebellum South than Django Unchained.

Jordan Peele is known for being really good at comedy, and now it turns out he's really good at horror too.
March 22, 2017
Peele's background in comedy serves him very well. The jokes are never riffed, nor do they feel less than organic to the plot.

In essence Get Out is every microaggression a black man has ever faced -- but supersized.
March 20, 2017
Don't be surprised if a knot sets up residence in your stomach as Peele toys with you.

Jordan Peele's Get Out is so clever you could write a thesis on it the length of War and Peace.

A film of two halves, then, and though I'm not convinced it all fits together perfectly, the latter part's move into all-out horror is entertaining in itself.

Proof that you don't need stars or special effects to lure an audience. Just a fresh idea and a twisted imagination.

Beneath the beatific smile of 21st-century liberalism, Get Out finds the still grinning ghoulish skull of age-old servitude and exploitation unveiled during a rollercoaster ride into a very American nightmare.

A great exercise in sustained tension and menace rooted in social discomfort.

An erratic yet ultimately rewarding horror flick...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 17, 2017
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.
March 17, 2017
It's a combination of a knowing issue-based drama, lively romantic comedy and unhinged horror that hits all of its targets with precision. And it keeps us gleefully entertained with its escalating terror.

This isn't some inside joke, it's a universal lesson learnt... even if that lesson is expertly disguised by a brilliantly bizarre and truly bonkers story set in the 'burbs.

In a double whammy of satire, Get Out upends all the expected tropes of the horror movie and gives middle-class white liberals a thorough skewering.

It lacks the subtlety of Night of the Living Dead, but deftly balances laughs and bloody thrills.

It was 6 minutes before I yelped and 15 before I wondered if I'd packed fresh underwear.

March 16, 2017
It's an auspicious debut to say the least, with Peele making good on his performance background in sketch comedy to make his points land with a sly wit that makes the horror all the more powerful.
