Get Out (2017)

Jordan Peele of Key & Peele makes his directorial debut with this unconventional horror story that puts a creepy, psychological twist onGuess Who’s Coming To Dinner.

Chris (Danial Kaluuya) and Rose (Allison Williams) travel to the country to visit Rose’s parents for a weekend getaway. Things get cringey and awkward as more people arrive for some sort of gathering and treat Chris in unusual ways. Things keep building as this feeling of dread develops. You feel like there is no way this can end well.

The writing is great and the characters are all superb. There are plenty of tense moments and the pacing escalates as the movie progresses. It’s the kind of movie that restores faith in modern horror. Not everything needs to be sequels or boring dumb stuff.
