What is Get Out actually about? This featurette helps answer some of those questions straight from the director’s, Jordan Peele, mouth. A different take on the horror genre. I do think that he has got it right.
Is it actually a horror film ‘tho? I’m not sure. It seems to be more of a thriller with an undertone of Trump’s America thrown in for good measure!
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 and his girlfriend, Rose, 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 behaviour 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.
