A different, highly original and great horror movie.
They’ve been dating for five months: Chris and Rose decide to spend a few days at her wealthy parents’ house. The family doesn’t seem to have as good the good intentions they seemed to have.
‘Get Out’ is a well elaborated psychological horror movie that left us unsettled. The narrative is well carried throughout the duration of the movie, keeping the viewer with a constant feeling of foreboding, which intensifies when the summer party guests arrive, and behave with the most unnerving complicity veiled in affected politeness; it evokes the same sense of eeriness as the scene in the movie Rosemary’s Baby elicits, when the neighbors gather at the Castevet household. Help! With a phenomenal cast, they all portray their roles seamlessly, making their characters believable – making the movie even more horrifying.
Is there social commentary in this movie? Perhaps, the consistent profile of the victims – all of them are African-American – of the lunatic 99.9% white “Order of Coagula” can very well serve as a direct criticism of the racism existent in America. And yet, might Peele have made it so blatant and outrageous (on the horror movie scale) in order to give himself leeway to satirize racism itself as a phenomenon and racists? This movie will be debate fodder, and food for thought for quite a few, varying in angle according to the viewers lens. Social commentary aside, it is a horror movie of the sort that leaves a lingering feeling on unease. Now THAT is a horror movie!
This is a spectacular debut for this director.
