Get out – 2017
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. 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 never could have imagined. (Adapted from Google synopsis).

Conclusion – personal thoughts and recommendations
This. Film. Was. Chilling… honestly terrifying. Get out Created such a new sense of suspenseful atmosphere that I was left confused and bordering paranoid in my own home. They way they structured this movie left you to wonder, what is happening? This was such a clever and morbid film that all I can really say is, hats off to Jordan Peele.
I would recommend this film to, well, anyone really but especially those who can handle a little suspension for a while as the horrorific parts don’t come til much later. This film really leaves you in a state of unease throughout and for that I commend them, no one likes a schlock horror.
To conclude, a good thing to remember is this film is quite violent and can be a bit frightening to younger audiences so please keep an eye out for the ratings before watching this film.
If you choose to see it, enjoy! And comment your opinion on the film in the comments!
