A young African-American man visits his Caucasian girlfriend's mysterious family estate.

Alert
"When a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation. Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods). 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. Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Jordan Peele (Key and Peele)."

This movie makes me want to go to my black friends and give them a long, loving hug.
I suppose you could call this a highly intelligent horror movie. The writer and director are clearly masters at creating suspense and anticipation. I felt quite tense and anxious from early on in the film, without really knowing a lot about the film in advance. I realized that I was scared and kept saying to myself, alone in the house, "I'm scared." I considered not watching all of it in one sitting but I'm glad that I allowed for continuity. I think this is the first horror/suspense movie that I've ever seen that should be followed by a process/discussion group of your closest loved ones. Black Lives certainly do Matter and this film makes me believe it all the more passionately.

Was rather impressed with this first time director/writer, Jordan Peele (co-wrote the 2016 Keanu film) movie. Had some tense moments and was rather good as a creepy weird/horror film. Thought the acting suited the parts.
However, i did not feel like the ending was as realistic or as good as the "alternative ending" that is provided on the DVD.
There is a segment of the bonus material that does provide some interesting background information and even some clips, not used in the film, that actually helped to know the bigger story (not the deleted scene section).
I would have given it a better rating, if not for the ending provided in the released version.

"Guess who's coming to dinner" reloaded for the 21st Cent.

This is a sinister concoction of social commentary, science fiction and black (no pun intended) comedy; an extended riff on the minority experience in the U.S.

Absolutely recommended. Regarding the alternate ending: it would have been much more realistic, but I would've hated it.

For the deleted scenes, there are seven different versions of the one where his friend rescues him. One would've been great for inclusion in the final film: my candidates are the ones titled "Rose's vote" or "White girls."

An exceptionally tense and well crafted Horror film with a (somewhat) unique premise.
The lead (Daniel Kaluuya) is absolutely brilliant. The central supporting cast is almost as good.
Oddly enough, despite its surface appearance, the movie makes no paticular commentary on Race. Yet does, however, rely on it heavily as a plot device.
That is to say: The movie has nothing to do with racism even though it has racists in it.
The movie really had only one major drawback.
The comedy relief (Lil Rey Howery) spoils every scene he is in by detracting from the overall tension.
It was an exceptionally poor idea to cast him.
Great movie though.

Written and directed by Jordan Peele in 2017, this American horror film depicts a supernatural unbelievably disgusting plan and its subsequent incident.
I thought this was a serious drama.
If I knew this was a horrow flick, I wouldn't have viewed it.
Although this is NOT my cup of tea at all, a script is well-crafted.
At the very end, however, I laughed my head off to death.

This was probably a lot creepier simply because it is described as a horror film so I had imagined worse. In hindsight, there's an obvious conceptual parallel to a 1999 film that doesn't involve racial differences but you don't really find out what's going on in either until the end so I won't spoil it.

Not a horror flick fan, but I recognized this was a very inventive one.

I personally thought this movie was well done. It’s freaky, kinda gory, and twisted with an interesting back story. Definitely a movie to add on to the list of scary movies to watch during Halloween. It keeps you on your toes!

Not what I expected, but gripping from start to finish. Refreshingly original.

A shocking thriller that raises disturbing questions about the status of racism in today's society. Highly recommended.

"You know what I say? I say, one down, a couple hundred thousand to go. I don't mean to get on my high horse, but -- I'm telling you -- I do not like the deer. I'm sick of it. They're taking over, they're like rats, they're destroying the ecosystem. I see a dead deer on the side of the road and I think, 'That's a start'."
