Chris and his girlfriend Rose go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.Written by
In mid-October 2017, Jordan Peele surprised students at a UCLA class called "Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and Black Horror Aesthetic", a course created after the success and popularity of this film. With the help of Tananarive Due, a college professor at UCLA, Peele secretly sat in the last row as class was in session. Professor Due asked the question, "What do you think the director was trying to say about the coveting of black bodies?" to which Peele raised his hand, much to the surprise and joy of the class once they recognized him. The students gave him thunderous applause and a standing ovation as he went to the front of the class, and Peele ended up teaching the students. The moment was briefly captured and shared on Twitter.

When Chris sends Rod a photo on his phone, he begins typing Rod's name into the recipient tab. However, even after several letters, his phone screen shows "no name found" in the tab. A suggested contact should have popped up right away. See more »
Fantastic! I would not call it "horror" but certainly "thriller" with some comedy thrown into it. This Jordan Peele fellow has managed to bring something new to this genre and I certainly hope he'll do more thrillers.
The cast is great and I especially enjoyed Betty Gabriels performance. Lots of faces I have never seen before and they all did a stellar job. And those faces I have seen before did a stellar job, too. =)
I do not know if the overall idea is new but the way it was presented and the way it was done feels very fresh.
