Thank god that Jordan Peele got to execute what was in his mind, and we got to witness the masterpiece he created in Get Out (2017). Movies like Get Out are rare because they take horror and mystery to a whole new level. It’s not just jump scares and horrific scenes, but the movie is layered and more nuanced.

Many things go into making such a movie, like getting the story right, the theme, tone, and the creative approach. Then comes the acting, the cinematography, and the rest of the movie magic. Without one, the other cannot make the movie a success, and this cannot be more clear in horror movies like Get Out.

Get Out deals with a lot of issues simultaneously. While primarily a psychological thriller, the movie touches on race, inter-racial couples, and other hot topics. The premise is simple, a mixed couple, Chris and Rose, head to the suburbs to spend the weekend with Rose’s parents. The family gives Chris a warm and over-enthusiastic reaction which seems weird to Chris, but he doesn’t think much of it. 

As the movie progresses and the tension builds, Chris realizes the white family in the suburbs is part of a racist cult. They use hypnosis, and other means to ‘capture’ black people, and then other horrific things follow. Get Out is twisted and weird and sometimes funny. Daniel Kaluya’s acting gives you more reasons to empathize with the protagonist, and once you are hooked, you are there till the end.

Abdul Mukeet
Two things define Abdul Mukeet. His love for literature and his love for food. He likes to indulge in the best versions of both of them. When he is not writing for Viebly, you can find him cooped up in a corner with a good book in his hand and a cat in his lap. Oh, yeah, he loves cats too. His interests lie in psychology and knowing what makes humans click. That is what he wants his writings to look be like too. Something that readers can click with. One day he will be an established author, till then, you can find him on Twitter tweeting lame puns and making unfunny jokes.
