Get Out (Bluray review)

Director; Jordan Peele
Mystery/Thriller
1h 44 minutes
From April 2017

Get Out left me gasping for air, the level of suspense and mystery was a perfectly blended cocktail of paranoia and dark thrill that will crawl underneath your skin and stay right there, taunting you with its dark and provocative script and premise long after the movies powerful ending.

Chris, played by the immensely talented actor Daniel Kaluuya is meeting his Caucasian girlfriend’s family for the first time, but once upon his arrival, he starts having a strange knot created inside of him, alarming him about the mystery that goes on behind closed doors.
As he only sees black people on the estate as the family’s servants, he starts wondering what in the world he has stepped into…

It’s a fantastic cinematic experience with some Purge meets 12 years of slave vibes, I’m not in any way comparing them due to them being completely different genres and stories, but the same feeling I got when watching The Purge was making itself present during Get Out.

It’s dark, it’s scary, it’s smart! With its brilliant acting and directing, it’s a movie that will stay with you for a long time.
Loving that Peele delivered some rationally thinking characters with a great sense of mind. Sometimes that along in thrillers have bothered me, the way certain roles were played out, thinking that I’ve met bread with a higher IQ. Here, Chris (Kaluuya) acted out and did what you would want someone in his situation to do. 7/10
