Blu-ray Review Round-Up: Invasion Of The Bee Girls, I Bury The Living, Virus, What’S The Matter With Helen?

19 May 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As Scream Factory continues to release pared-down catalogue titles on their now five-year-old label, the brand keeps expanding to include all different kinds of movies. Once known for releasing deluxe special editions of horror fan favorites, the company has diversified over the last half decade and begun releasing new films (as part of their deal with IFC midnight), unknown (and sometimes previously unavailable) cult films, a handful of classics, and even their own in-house productions. This last batch of catalogue titles, the majority of which have been released with only minimum bonus features but new HD scans, continues to broaden the reach of the Scream Factory brand to include a range of titles from secretly successful ’70s sexploitation sci-fi to well-intentioned failures of the 1990s.

First up is the 1958 cult classic I Bury the Living, directed by Albert Band (father of low-budget horror legend Charles Band, who would go on »

Awards Race Disruption: Why ‘Get Out’ and Netflix Can Afford to Rewrite the Rules

11 May 2017 12:35 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Isn’t May a little early to launch an Oscar campaign? Not anymore. These days, it seems old rules don’t apply. On Tuesday evening, Universal marketing turned its “Get Out” DVD launch party into an ad-hoc awards event, inviting awards journalists to its Wisteria Lane backlot to celebrate Jordan Peele’s horror comedy about suburbia gone very wrong.

At $174 million to date (and an expected $50 million bonus rolling out overseas), “Get Out” is Blumhouse horror producer Jason Blum’s highest-grossing film (and his second Oscar contender, after “Whiplash”). And no one is more surprised to be in the awards conversation than breakout writer-director Peele, who is developing seven more original ideas for his new Universal first-look deal. Chances are, he’ll get more than $4.5 million to make them.

Being in any awards race is “a little surreal to me,” Peele told me. “I have a hard time accepting that’s part of the conversation. »

'Get Out' is a strikingly scary thriller

25 April 2017 7:40 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By: D.S.

MoreHorror.com

A young black man visits his white girlfriend's family estate where he learns that many of its residents, who are black, have gone missing, and he soon learns the horrible truth when a fellow black man on the estate warns him to Get Out! And this line was appealing enough for me to wait for this movie to Get Out!

Let me clear you, this film not what many would consider "true genre horror", it's definitely a scary thriller.

Black photographer Chris Washington (Daniel Kaluuya) and his white girlfriend Rose Armitage (Allison Williams) visit Rose's parents for the weekend, where they meet Chris for the very first time. Staggered by their behavior from the very off, Chris begins to think all is not right in the home of Dean (Bradley Whitford) and Missy Armitage (Catherine Keener).

The characters are fleshed out immaculately, with Bradley Whitford »

A young black man meets his white girlfriend’s parents in Jordan Peele’s chilling satire of liberal racism in the Us

Ira Levin, author of Rosemary’s Baby and The Stepford Wives, would have cracked a wry smile at the cackling satire of this chilling “social thriller”, the directorial debut from MadTV alumnus Jordan Peele. When a preppy rich girl takes her African American boyfriend home for the first time, loving harmony turns to creeping discord. Diving deep into the broiling undercurrents of “post-racial” America, Peele’s hybrid creation starts out like a modern reworking of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, before drifting towards the more brutal territories of Kevin Smith’s Red State or Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room, via the eerie mysteries of Charles Burnett’s To Sleep With Anger. Beneath the beatific smile of 21st-century liberalism, Get Out finds the still grinning ghoulish skull of »

The 2 Iconic Films That Inspired Jordan Peele's Horror Masterpiece, Get Out

3 March 2017 7:00 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jordan Peele's new film, Get Out, currently holds a rare 99 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and for good reason. The subversive horror flick uses race as the primary motivator for the brilliant, bloody horror that transpires when a young black man (Daniel Kaluuya) accompanies his white girlfriend (Allison Williams) home for a weekend to meet her "liberal" parents. His descent into a terrifying "are they trying to kill me, or are they just weird?" back and forth results in an unsettling, funny, and overwhelmingly spooky movie. Given our current political climate, which makes Get Out more resonant than ever, it's easy to assume Peele's primary inspiration for the film was pulled from news headlines about black men continuously suffering grave and blatant injustice at the hands of white people. It turns out a lot of different things influenced the final product, which Peele began working on before »

Jordan Peele on Get Out, the No. 1 Movie in the Country: ‘Horror Doesn’t Have to Be Disgusting’

2 March 2017 11:48 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

While Jordan Peele is a lifelong fan of horror movies, he knows that not everyone shares his enthusiasm for the genre which more often than not contain blood and guts and death and calculated scare tactics. With his directorial debut Get Out, however, which is a hit with critics and at the box office, he set out to make a horror movie that would be accessible to everyone — even those who don’t typically enjoy the genre.

‘Get Out’ Is the First of Many ‘Social Thrillers’ Jordan Peele Has Planned

2 March 2017 8:34 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just can’t get enough “Get Out”? Never fear, Jordan Peele has plenty more where that came from. The writer/director recently told Business Insider: “I have four other social thrillers that I want to unveil in the next decade.”

Get Out” brilliantly uses classic horror and thriller tropes to exorcise the demons of racism. It stars Daniel Kaluuya as a young black man who takes a weekend trip to his white girlfriend’s (Allison Williams) family home, where casual racism is merely a front for far more sinister aims. The film is a brilliant use of genre to explore social issues while also being equal parts wildly entertaining and deeply provocative.

Get Out – Review

23 February 2017 10:36 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The first few months of the year seem to be prime territory for the studios to unleash new horror flicks. Perhaps the thinking is to get out of the way of most of the action blockbusters of the Spring/Summer and steer clear of those serious “message” prestige films near the end of the year. Well, maybe this “chiller” could be close to the later category. It’s got lotsa’ scares and some not-so-subtle bits of social commentary, a message horror flick. But it’s really not something new to ‘sinister cinema”. Many interpret the vampire legend as a commentary on female sexuality while others see zombie stories as metaphors for the struggle in the class system (the walking dead as the lower classes rising up to consume…). Perhaps the most famous example of this “mixing” is 1956’s iconic Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (and its three remakes), which some »

Comedy Horror Movie Get Out Is Funny, Scary, Bloody — and Dead Serious About Racism

23 February 2017 6:17 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Chris Washington and Rose Armitage, his white girlfriend, arrive for a weekend visit with her family in a remote, leafy suburb, Dad tries hard (too hard) to allay any discomfort his guest may be experiencing.

Or to look at it from the other end, Dr. Armitage — he’s a neurosurgeon — is trying to disguise any hint that he and Rose’s mother might themselves be experiencing any discomfort: Chris is their daughter’s first African-American significant other, and Rose hasn’t told them in advance.

Dr. Armitage addresses Chris as “my man” and tells him how much he loved Barack Obama – wished, »

Playback: Jordan Peele on ‘Get Out’ and Art’s Role Under a Trump Regime

23 February 2017 11:27 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety podcast.

On this week’s episode, Jenelle Riley and I welcome back Variety Senior VP Tim Gray for one last round of Oscar predictions before Hollywood’s big night on Sunday. What are the tightest races? Is there a runaway sweep on the horizon or something more varied? Lots of questions. We’ll have answers in a few days.

Later in the show (27:58) I’m talking to “Key & Peele’s” Jordan Peele, whose directorial debut, “Get Out,” bowed at the Sundance Film Festival last month. A horror film with a definitive point of view, it feels like the beginning of a promising career for the comedian behind the camera. Going to Park City was beyond his wildest dreams, however.

Get Out Producer Jason Blum on Jordan Peele’s Directorial Debut

23 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

There are few producers who have had the overwhelming success of Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions from their early days turning Oren Peli’s low-budget Paranormal Activity into a hugely profitable franchise, followed by the equally successful Insidious and The Purge movies. Jason Blum also has an Oscar nomination notched onto his career belt for his involvement in getting Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-nominated Whiplash made, and Blumhouse were involved with bringing Jem and the Holograms to movie theaters. (Sorry, but I actually kind of liked it, even though it bombed… big time.)

Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out will be the third time Blumhouse has worked with an actor making their transition into directing, as Jason Blum handled the same duties on Joel Edgerton’s The Gift and Leigh Whannell’s Insidious: Chapter 3 a few years back.

Get Out Review

22 February 2017 6:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jordan Peele’s Get Out is a modern-day provocation commanded by raw talent. On the surface, one can marvel at a feature debut steadied by poise, purpose and tonal damnation. Social relevancy gives a voice to racial unrest, only making this twisted suburban nightmare even more daringly delicious. Peele uncorks a bottle of matured oppression, and adds it to a simmering societal pot that only appears to be bubbling more by the day. Paranoia, exploitation and class dominance make for one hell of a conflict, yet comedy still endures. Not like a confined Key & Peele sketch entertains, though – expect nothing to be held back. Just wait for the last thirty-minutes or so. Fireworks by way of gore, survival terrors and one massive, monumental mindfuck.

Daniel Kaluuya stars as Chris, an African-American photographer who’s dating the All-American Rose (Allison Williams). It’s a big weekend for the couple. They’re »

Get Out review – white liberal racism is terrifying bogeyman in sharp horror

22 February 2017 12:35 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Writer-director Jordan Peele masterfully combines incisive social commentary with genuine, seat-edge suspense in film exploring evils of American suburbia

There’s a great, often under-appreciated, history of social commentary within the horror genre. From John Carpenter’s politically charged They Live to Bryan Forbes’ haunting adaptation of The Stepford Wives, Ira Levin’s icy take on the male fear of second-wave feminism, scares and satire used to arrive simultaneously. But somewhere along the way, that tradition has been jump-shocked out of its seat, popcorn flying, and replaced with vapidity, an impatient teenage audience force-fed predictable thrills over a story that might provoke or inspire debate.

‘Get Out’ Review: Jordan Peele Scores With a Scary, Funny, Relevant Directorial Debut

22 February 2017 10:38 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The spirit of Ira Levin is alive and well in “Get Out,” Jordan Peele’s impressive feature debut as a writer-director. Levin was best known for novels like “Rosemary’s Baby” and “The Stepford Wives,” chilling little tales in which a seemingly posh and prosperous community was hiding something truly terrifying. That’s the vibe that Peele nails so successfully. On their sketch show “Key & Peele,” he and comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key were masters at finding the humor in the uncomfortable gulf between male and female, black and white, gay and straight, nerdy and cool; here, there’s a similar mining of everyday. »

Jordan Peele’s Second Act: How the ‘Key & Peele’ Comedy Star Became a Bonafide Horror Director With ‘Get Out’

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jordan Peele’s latest career incarnation could have been fodder for “Key & Peele,” the hit Comedy Central sketch show in which he and Keegan-Michael Key skewered modern racial issues. But Peele wrote had written a horror movie about race, and it needed a director. That created a challenge: After William Crain (“Blacula”), Bill Gunn (“Ganja & Hesse”), and Ernest Dickerson (“Bones,” “The Walking Dead”), how many black horror directors can you name? (The savviest genre fans out there might also remember James Bond III, very much a real person, who directed “Def By Temptation” 27 years ago.)

Needless to say, it was slim pickings. “I first pitched this as a movie no one would make,” Peele said. “About halfway through writing the script, I realized I was the only person who could direct it.”

However, Peele’s feature directing debut, “Get Out,” also brings him into the rarified class of horror directors »

Get Out: Jordan Peele Explores Race With His Social Horror Flick

21 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

After many years establishing himself as a comedian--first on Mad TV and then teaming with that show’s Keegan--Michael Key for the equally successful Comedy Central show Key and Peele--Jordan Peele has decided to go behind the camera to make his directorial debut with the horror-thriller Get Out.

It stars Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario) as Chris Washington, whose girlfriend Rose Armitage (Allison Williams of Girls) wants to take their relationship to the next level by having him meet her parents, who she hasn’t told that her boyfriend is black. At first, it doesn’t seem to matter, but as they spend the weekend together at her parent’s remote house, they’re joined by family friends who are acting equally oddly around Chris.  As Chris tries to figure out what is happening, he is led down a dark path towards something quite malevolent and deadly.
