A brilliant movie with timely themes relevant to the world we live in now!

Excellent work from writer/director Jordan Peele!

GET OUT is a one-of-a-kind thriller. Writer/Director Jordan Peele strikes the right balance between suspense, dark humor, and the serious (a social commentary on the state of race relations in America). What an innovative and entertaining movie! Of added interest is the alternate ending with commentary by Peele, one of the Bonus Features on the DVD.

A well-done old-school sci-fi flick. Basically "Stepford Wives" with black guys rather than women as the victims. Not a very original premise, but handled nicely and not a gore-fest. I enjoyed it.

One commenter asked "Does anyone understand the scene where guests are playing silent-bingo in the yard, and the host was flashing hand/finger signs?" I didn't understand it either when I watched the movie, but the bonus material/out-takes makes it clear that the rich white folk were basically conducting a slave auction.

This movie is a good example of how science fiction can be used to reflect and sublimate a society's cultural changes. The "Stepford Wives" grew out of and reflected the birth of feminism in this country. This movie reflects the growing drive for cultural fairness by America's talented young black people.

It was OK.... slight twist on plots we've seen for decades. Oscar-worthy ? Not a chance !! Does anyone understand the scene, when guests were playing silent-bingo in the yard, and the host was flashing hand/finger signs ??

I think it is annoying that this junk was nominated for Oscar!

I've enjoyed Key & Peele's Halloween specials for years, so I initially expected something slightly humorous and off-beat. Instead I realized this was similar to The Stepford Wives but with a deeper, horrific feel. Beautifully surreal commentary and not to be missed.

Creepy, not scary, I didn't expect the ending, which is always positive. I did notice the one plot-hole mentioned in someone else's comment. I didn't really care, though, as the resolution was satisfying. Highly recommend.
