Storyline

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.

Trivia

Daniel Kaluuya has said that he can relate to the party scene. He states, "That party scene was just like, 'Oh, I've been in that party. I'm going to that party. Like, that kind of racism that isn't seen as racism, that isn't seen as, kind of like, mainstream racism. It's just life, and to explore that is quite an uncomfortable conversation, and Jordan just spoke his truth. He cinematically articulated an experience that millions of people go through and they are made to feel crazy for going through that. But he just said, 'No, actually, you're not crazy.'" See more »

Quotes

Chris Washington: He's different.
Rod Williams: No shit! Why is he dressed like that?
Chris Washington: It's not that, it's everything. He came to the party with a white woman like 30 years older than him.
Rod Williams: Sex slave! Oh, shit! Chris, you gotta get the fuck up outta there, man! You in some 'Eyes Wide Shut' situation. *Leave*, motherfuck -

User Reviews

 
Best debut from a first time director in years
12 May 2017 | by dre64-2See all my reviews

Let's clear the air about this film. It's not a horror film. It's not a comedy. What it is, is a suspenseful thriller of the highest level, worthy to be compared to Hitchcock caliber. The humor is there, along with a few horror scenes, but not enough to overshadow the main theme of the story. The film hits all cylinders with almost no misfires. As far as complaints that the film is racist, it is not. It would work just as well with an all-black or all-white cast. Those complaints are from people who are uncomfortable with black people or interracial relationships and are letting it distract them from the narrative of the film. I most certainly hope that it reaches the wider audience that it so richly deserves.
