Trivia

Jordan Peele cited the original Night of the Living Dead (1968) as an inspiration for making this his feature film writing-directing debut, because the film had an African American protagonist. See more »

Goofs

When the neurosurgeon, Dean, prepares for surgery, he takes his sterile gloves and pulls his mask up over his face. A mask is not a sterile item, and his gloves would no longer be sterile after touching it. He then takes a scalpel from an unwrapped, cloth-lined box - something else that would not be sterile.

Good But Don't Believe All The Hype
4 April 2017 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I have until very recently had a problem sleeping. You see when I was in bed I'd be lying there and I'd suddenly have enraged thoughts as to the Oscars being too white. Words can not convey just grief stricken and tortured I was knowing that once again the Academy Awards were going to gift accolades to white film makers once again damaged me mentally . emotionally and physically. Thankfully all this was cured when MOONLIGHT won the Best Picture this year. All the world's wrongs had now been righted in what must be the most important event ever since the big bang 13.8 billion years ago. Now the only thing bothering me is that every time I watch a horror thriller is that the token black character gets bumped off early. Along comes GET OUT which has received universal praise and features a black director/screenwriter in Jordan Peele and stars black actor Daniel Kaluuya so there's no way a clichéd thriller where the first scene features a token black character getting killed

!!!! SUGGESTIVE SPOILERS !!!!

So the first scene features a black man walking along a dark lonely street .. Then he's attacked. I suppose this is an example of post modernism? Thankfully this is more than tokenism because we're introduced to the main character Chris Washington who is African American and has a white girlfriend Rose who drives him to her middle class WASP parents home. There's two things that can happen at this scenario. One is the middle WASP class parents slam the door in their face and disown their daughter. The other scenario is boyfriend is greeted as a respected new addition to the household and he soon wishes the parents had slammed the door in his face

To be fair to Jordan Peele he has made a fairly effective and enjoyable tongue in cheek horror thriller. The only thing he can be criticised for is that the polite middle class White Anglo Saxon Protestant characters constantly reminded me a little too much of THE STEPFORD WIVES. Apart from that it's an entertaining film. The downside is that it's really nothing more than that and I'm slightly surprised as well as puzzled by the hype and acclaim surrounding GET OUT. It goes without saying that the hype works against. Watch the film but don't expect a masterwork of cinema otherwise you'll be left with a feeling of disappointment
