After watching Keanu last year, which I had enjoyed, I had been looking forward to what Key and Peele could bring next to the big screen. I didn’t expect that that would be – at least, coming from half of them – an original, well-written horror film.
The movie, titled Get Out, is about a black man named Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) who gets invited by his white girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) to go on a weekend trip to her home and meet her family. Christ is wary at first since Rose has failed to mention to her family that she’s dating a black man. But she reassures him that her family isn’t going to be prejudiced against their interracial relationship. And it seems to be indeed like that when he gets to meet them, as they treat him very cordially. But as the weekend passes, Chris begins to notice that some things are off, which eventually leads him to a very sinister discovery.
