Black photographer Chris Washington and his white girlfriend, Rose Armitage, have been dating for several months. Rose now feels it’s time for the two of them to visit her parents at their large country home in upstate New York. Chris is a bit tense not knowing how Rose’s parents will take to their relationship. But her father, Dean, a neurosurgeon, and her mother, Missy, a hypnotherapist, greet Dean and Rose warmly and with open arms. But Chris is somewhat unnerved by the odd behavior of the estate’s black staff, the housekeeper Georgina and the groundskeeper Walter. At the Armitage’s annual get-together party, Chris encounters a strange crowd. When he tries to take a photo of another black man, Logan King, Logan becomes hysterical. After the party, Chris implores Rose to leave with him and go back to the city. But it’s at this time the nightmare begins for Chris. The Armitages have sinister plans that threaten Chris’s sanity and his life. Chris is going to have to take some drastic steps if he is going to successfully escape this nutty household.

GET OUT earns its laughs while honoring horror traditions. We need more movies that dare to start a conversation, all the while entertaining the hell out of us.Richard Roeper
With the ambitious and challenging GET OUT, Jordan Peele reveals that we may someday consider directing the greatest talent of this fascinating actor and writer. Peele’s greatest gift here is in the way he walks that fine line, staging exchanges that happen all the time but imbuing them with a greater degree of menace.Brian Tallerico
GET OUT delivers plenty to frighten and enrage audiences. But it’s the fact that Peele doesn’t pull a single one of his punches that makes this Blumhouse-backed debut a must see. What a watershed feat Peele has pulled off, delivering such a gloriously twisted thriller that simultaneously has so much to say about the state of affairs in post-Obama America.Peter Debruge
GET OUT is very creepy, very funny and as pitiless as a surgeon’s scalpel.Peter Bradshaw
