Review By: Kelsey Deth
Get Out is a refreshing psychological entrapment horror film that pairs racial subtext with eerie and unsettling suspense, resulting in a strong vision of terror. Even though I can’t ever be in our lead, Chris’ shoes, being a white woman, I can understand the very real, relevant fears this movie will invoke in those who could be. Regardless of my skin color, imagining myself in this situation is utterly crippling and unthinkable, it invokes a true sense of dread and helplessness in me. I felt for Chris and was invested in him finding his way out of this hellish fate. Even before we know what’s going on we are really on this surreal offbeat path with Chris as he gets closer to finding out just why something feels so wrong.
