There are certainly good things in this movie, but the fact that it has become the flagship horror film of this generation is ridiculous. As social satire it is rather good, visually it has a few fresh tricks, as a horror film it is basically average, and as an Oscar contender it is simply lacking. Good enough to spend 2 hours on, but nothing that will stick with you.

Somewhat predictable with not-so-subtle political pedantism and white stereotypes. But still not a bad movie. It is rather racist however. You get the 1970's horror vibe. There's no Rosie Greer in this, but it would fit if there were.

The Extras on the bluray edition explain the oddly conspiratorial stereotypes about whites that were on heavy display all through the film. They even admit to inspiration from similar flicks of the 1970's.

The movie sure won't help race relations.

Best movie I've seen in a long time! And not because as my family would point out I can pick some less than stellar efforts - but even my wife enjoyed this one! If you enjoy a suspense-thriller-horror movie with a dash of comedy mixed in I would recommend this.

I read only 6 horror movies have been nominated for best picture at the Oscars and "Get Out" was one of them. See why it won "Best Original Screenplay". It got the respect it deserved.

You've only got to ask one question- How did the main character get the chair stuffing ( cotton? ) into his ears? The whole film falls apart on this one point ( the answer is that he couldn't possibly have been able to do it - if you watch the movie you'll know why ). Really amateurish to mess up such an obvious and important plot point- and if he could reach down to the armchair to get cotton ( per the comment below ) then why didn't he undo the straps with his teeth and escape- because the movie is amateurish and not very well constructed.
Basically, it's a rip-off of the " Stepford Wives "( 1972 ) with the main theme switched from patriarchal inequality to racial inequality ( with a small twist added to it so it's not a total rip-off ). I thought the main actor Daniel Kaluuya overacted wildly- it was like he was acting in a silent movie from the 1920's his facial movements were so over exaggerated.

Anyone who says this is a bad movie.... WOW. REALLY? This was a well thought out thriller/ suspense / horror/ comedy all rolled in one movie. The movie and acting was great. Guarantee the people who disliked this movie also disliked Black Panther. Oh well, there's my review.

That was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The acting is horrible, the plot is predictable, and the cinematography is bad. I can't believe how good the reviews of this movie are unless they are fake. We turned the movie off not even halfway through but then I finished it the next day out of morbid curiosity...and it didn't get any better.

Predictable. Ordinary. Boring. Tries too hard to make a political statement.

Racism was more of a platform than the underlying reason for the second generation activities. The Armitage family members clearly did not like each other. The movie tests interpretive skills and is clever in many ways. To only see racism is too simple.
