Slate reported that this movie was the "secret midnight screening" at the January 2017 Sundance Film Festival--even though "rumors had been circulating for days that the horror movie...was the festival's enticing TBA [to be announced selection], and Variety confirmed those rumors hours before the show."

I know she caught me off guard, right? But it's cool because... I'm cured. It worked!
Bruh, how you not scared of this, man? Look, they could have made you do all types of stupid shit. They have you fuckin' barking like a dog, flying around like you a fuckin' pigeon looking ridiculous. Or... I don't know if you noticed, white people love making people sex slaves and shit.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are not a kinky sex family, dawg.

I decided to see this film at the theater after hearing some of the hype (which was basically that it is an excellent horror film that is told from the perspective of a black man).
Well, I can see this would be truly the worst nightmare of a black man (and really the worst nightmare for us all). This is NOT a film that tries to make the viewer feel "sorry" for black people, nor is it at all preachy, but it is just a good old fashioned horror film with a fresh new setting. I'm an old white guy by the way.
The acting is wonderful, and directing is amazing. The film, while mostly horror, is actually completely hilarious in some parts, making it the funniest AND scariest movie I have seen in ages (no easy feat). It is a shame that the film will likely not be regarded in the company of Academy Award potential nominees, because the directing and acting is honestly Oscar worthy. Again, no small feat for a horror movie that is also funny.
In summary, this is a MUST SEE at the theater and one of the best films of the year. It is a fun ride that is very well done!
