Jordan Peele’s directorial debut impresses with its twisted take on horror for mainstream audiences.
Is it worth $10? Yes
The terrific Daniel Kaluuya plays a handsome, successful, young Black man in comedian-turned-filmmaker Jordan Peele’s (“Key & Peele” [2012-2015]) haunting directorial debut. In “Get Out,” Kaluuya’s Chris Washington is happily committed to a beautiful woman named Rose (Allison Williams) and to their interracial relationship—she’s White.
The movie hits the ground running with a super-effective and memorable opening scene set to the tune of Flanagan & Allen’s “Run Rabbit Run.” The rest of the film takes us on an uncomfortable and frightening, though enjoyable, trip.
