PLOT: African-American Chris heads in the country with his white girlfriend Rose. About to meet her folks for the first time, he is understandably apprehensive; especially when Rose informs him that her parents don't know he is black. After arriving at their house for a weekend stay, Chris sees that Rose's folks couldn't be nicer. In fact, they're little too nice. But as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

REVIEW: “Get Out” is a horror flick from the mind of Jordan Peele. Jordan Peele is simply an early mastermind director, best known for his satirical TV comedy show “Key & Peele”. He did an amazing writing and this movie is very well directed by him, bringing an excellent use of tension and suspense. The film deals with racism in a clever and absorbent way. This is the kind of movie that leaves you feeling a bit weird after watching, with the story stuck inside your mind. Despite the horror elements, “Get Out” has a slight crest of comic relief. Daniel Kaluuya and Alison Williams were incredible in their roles, but without a doubt Catherine Keener did the best job at making the audience get involved; by being a despicable character from the get-go. It can be argued that as a horror movie, the film is not so frightening, though it does give a type of thrill that is sure to deliver goose bumps. “Get Out” is surely one of the best thrillers in theatres in years. It's a must watch for movie lovers who want the actual zest of the thriller genre.
