No, the title of this post isn’t me telling you to take a hike. It’s in reference to that super-eerie horror film that is quite literally sweeping the nation right now. I’ve seen it, and it’s fantastic. You have too, and you want to see it again? Or maybe you haven’t, but need to see what all the fuss is about? Well never fear; I’ve got copies of Get Out on Blu-ray, and I’m dying to give ’em to you. Synopsis!
In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, 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 (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the- parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods). At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior 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.
Keanu was hilarious, as well as a well-crafted comedy. But what Jordan Peele does with horror? Well now. You’ll have to see, won’t you? C’mon then!
