Get Out

Man, I told you not to go in that house.
25 March 2017

A black guy dating a white girl go away for a weekend to visit her family home out in the countryside. Shit gets weird.

It’s extremely important I don’t give anything away here, not because of some daft twist but because sitting back and watching this unfold without any idea of what’s coming is the best course of action.

For now I’ll just say that this is the funniest, smartest, most terrifying film I have seen in a very very long time. I’m not the biggest horror fan but Get Out goes out of its way to avoid cheap thrills, instead building a genuinely disturbing and deranged atmosphere even Hitchcock would be proud of.

Not to be missed.
