A young African American man visits his white girlfriend's family estate where he learns that many of its residents, who are black, have gone missing, and he soon learns the horrible truth when another frantic African-American warns him to "get out". He soon learns this is easier said than done.
Horror - This horror/suspense thriller has a fair amount of dark humor and
social commentary to go along with its creepiness. While there isn't
any major violence until the final 20 minutes or so, when it does
come it is brutal and bloody. That, along with constant language and
adult themes makes the film not for kids. The more recognizable
stars in the cast, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, and Catherine
Keener have supporting roles to the more unknown lead, Daniel Kaluuya.
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; over 30 S-words; 2 Gd's; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Beatings, shootings, fights, surgery with blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Fights, fires, and car wrecks. COMEDY: Darkly comic lines and situations; race humor.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good The praiseworthy quality of Get Out is that it delivers the goods without copycatting every cookie-cutter horror film being released today. It's the proverbial breath of fresh air blowing through a stale industry.
Roger EbertFull Review Good "Get Out" feels fresh and sharp in a way that studio horror movies almost never do. It is both unsettling and hysterical, often in the same moment... "Get Out" is not a film that takes breaks for comedy routines... keeping us on edge and uncertain from the opening scene to the final one.
NY PostFull Review Good Peele's content to deliver an entertaining suspenser, one stylistically aligned with the paranoia-inflected conspiracy films of the 1970s, in which the violence is confined to the final minutes, rather than the later slasher films, in which the audience is invited to gorge itself on a junk-food buffet of murders.
