Get Out definitely makes viewers want to get out of the theater before the movie is over.

Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and Rose (Allison Williams) are an interracial couple visiting Rose’s family for the weekend. During the visit, Chris realizes that he is in danger after white people around the house start acting strangely, and Rose’s mother (Catherine Keener) hypnotises him.

Get Out has a slow start, but after almost an hour, it starts to intensify with a plot twist. Using the horror movie genre to critique modern society, director Jordan Peele makes the whites in the film “monsters” preying on blacks.

The actors do a successful job at playing their parts, but Peele, of the TV show Key and Peele, fails at making Get Out a horror movie.

With only a few scenes able to make viewers jump, Get Out incorporates more humor than fear. Writers use excessive amounts of profanity in attempts to make viewers laugh and earn an R rating.

With high reviews leading up to the premiere of the movie, Get Out is a letdown.
