(VVNG.com)- Regardless of whether you like scary movies or not, you are sure to have some spooky fun during this thrilling gem of a flick. I usually stay away from horror movies but I was curious as heck about this one and I am REALLY glad I put on my big boy pants the day I went to see it. I had so much fun watching the movie go from one freakishly shocking surprise to another. This film is really well written, well directed, well acted and “well’ surely have you guessing, jumping, smiling, screaming, and having a heck of a freaky good time.
I kept forgetting that this was supposed to be a horror flick because of the many times the main characters were hanging out, with the seemingly perfect parents, just having a gay ol’ time. Those moments were always suddenly interrupted by a perfectly placed jump-scare or by an extremely eerie occurrence. That’s how it was throughout the whole movie. One moment you’re laughing and smiling because of a funny situation. The next, you find yourself pretending to be looking for the perfect popcorn as an excuse to look away from the screen during a scary scene.
I give Get Out, the “Checky™ Seal of Approval!” Kudos to Jordan Peele (one half of Key and Peele) for writing and directing such a smart and frightening film and for being able to make the unbelievable, believable. The cast is great, specially the main actor, Daniel Kaluuya, the music and tone are perfectly creepy and the story is REALLY good from start to finish. On the surface, I thought that this movie was just going to be a simple lesson about how this country is taking some major racial steps backwards, but it is so much more than that and by the third act it seemed like everyone in the theater was hooked and were audibly laughing, cheering and gasping at every shocking twist and WTH moment this flick was perfectly executing.
So I recommend you GET OUT of your house and go to the theaters so you can experience all of the terrifying secrets behind this thrilling flick that is so intriguing and smart, you won’t mind when it gets under your skin and messes with your head.
So, what did you think of Get Out? Do you agree or disagree with me? Which flick are you checking out this week? What is your favorite scary movie of all time? Let me know in the comments below. Have a great day at the movies and don’t forget to save me some popcorn.
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), 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 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 never could have imagined.
