Get Out is the rare movie that perfectly blends horror and satire

Universal

It’s the perfect setup for a horror movie: there’s a lonely house in the woods and a weird ritual that our naive protagonist Chris (Black Mirror‘s Daniel Kaluuya) doesn’t understand until it’s too late. Except the “woods” are a bucolic suburb and the weird ritual is meeting his girlfriend Rose’s family for the first time. But something even creepier than awkward small talk is going on. And that’s where the horror/fun of Get Out begins.

Chris has a tragic past, but he’s become a successful photographer and finally found happiness with new girlfriend Rose. They’ve been together for five months, and now he’s ready to meet her family. But there’s a little more tension than usual in this relationship rite of passage: Rose (Girls‘ Allison Williams) is white, and she hasn’t told her parents that Chris is black. Chris is nervous, but Rose points out that telling her parents: “Oh yeah, I’m bringing my BLACK boyfriend home” would have been even more awkward.
