Get Out

Writer/Producer/Director Jordan Peele’s Get Out is a creepy, but fun horror/mystery that I think even those, who are not normally fans of the genre, will enjoy.
The plot centers around a mixed-racial couple (Allison Williams and Daniel Kaluuya), driving to the country home of the woman’s parents (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford).
On the way, their car hits and kills a deer.  That’s the least of what happens.  And, it’s all I will mention because this is a film of spooky surprises.

Peele’s writing and directing are excellent and Cinematographer Toby Oliver and Editor Gregory Plotkin support his work, admirably.

The moral of this story is that it pays big-time to have a best friend, who in this case is wonderfully played by LilRel Howery.

I give Get Out a 4.2 out of 5.
