Horror History: Jordan Peele’s GET OUT Opened in 2017

On this day in horror history, writer-director Jordan Peele’s Get Out opened back in 2017. Daniel Kaluuya stars with Allison Williams, and Lil Rel Howery.

Chris and his girlfriend, Rose have reached the meet-the-parents milestone. So she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate. 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 the truth. One he never could have imagined.

Bradley Whitford co-stars with Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, Catherine Keener, and Lakeith Stanfield.

The film sports a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. The Critics Consensus reads: Funny, scary, and thought-provoking. Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride.

Blumhouse’s producer Jason Blum said that he’d be up for Get Out 2 – but only via Jordan Peele. He said: “If Jordan wants to do a sequel, I’ll do it in a second, but it has to come from Jordan Peele. I think he’s flirting with the idea.”
