Comedian Jordan Peele make his debut on the horror scene with Get Out, a Blumhouse-produced thriller that uses the genre to tackle pressing race issues that are particularly topical at this present moment. Peele’s fresh vision has been hailed as a masterpiece by most who have seen it, including our own Fred Topel, who wrote in his review that “Get Out gets in right.”
Furthermore, the film currently has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes!
What’s next from Peele? Speaking with Arrow in the Head, he just expressed a desire to make more thrillers. In fact, he’s developing some more in the vein of Get Out.
I’ve been developing several different movies in the category I call ‘the social thriller.’ They all bite off of a different human demon. Get Out is about several things but obviously it’s about race… the next one will be about something else.
Peele also noted that he’s open to at some point making a sequel to Get Out.
In Get Out…
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).
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 could have never imagined.
The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).
