Get Out – Movie Review
A young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend’s mysterious family estate.
Get Out is an exciting debut from Peele, who deftly combines enticing racial satire with genre thrills to impressive results.
I’ve seen more horror films than I can possibly count–being a big fan of the genre–so it’s refreshing that there are still original voices out there providing revitalization to the genre. Peele has crafted a highly appealing, special film that I hope will cause moviegoers to have a conversation on the way home about horror movies and social values.
