A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
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
Jordan Peele said in an interview that Allison Williams reminded him of "someone you knew and had a crush on when you met her at summer camp", and he thought this was a great quality for the kind of character Rose Armitage really is. See more »
Chris stands up with his hands up at the 1:38:38 and continues standing at 1:38:40, 1:38:48, and the 1:38:54 marks; then reappears at the 1:38:58 mark getting up from a a *prone position* and walking until 1:39:04 without ever having his hands in the air. See more »
This movie is appropriately in a genre Mr. Jordan Peele has christened, "Social Thriller". The movie creates a very unsettling feeling from the beginning that slowly builds to a crescendo, that forces the viewer to see prejudices head on. When all is said and done, you now have kind of a bird's eye view of what is wrong with society. But besides that, it hints a Hitchcock-type of thrill that is sure to deliver Goosebumps. A HUGE congratulations to Jordan Peele for hitting a HOME RUN, his first time up to bat. Looking forward to future projects from him. GO SEE, GET OUT. 😀😀
