A deep dive into Get Out

“Get Out” is a psychological horror film that was directed and written by Jordan Peele. I first watched this movie a few years ago with my friends one night, it looked interesting and we all said why not. We did not know what we were getting ourselves into. It was one of the most disturbing and weird movies I have ever watched, but we loved it. We were hooked the second we turned it on. The story follows a young African American man named Chris who is played by Daniel Kaluuya, who finally builds the courage to visit his white girlfriend’s parents one weekend. Chris is uncomfortable due to racial dynamics he encounters, but his girlfriend Rose, who is played by Allison Williams, reassures him that her family is open minded. 

They arrive at her parents’ house and Chris meets everyone in the family. First thing as he gets there is the strange behavior from the estate’s black groundskeeper, Walter, and the housekeeper, Georgia. Which adds to his unease. These encounters serve as ominous warnings of deeper secrets lurking beneath the surface of the seemingly idyllic Armitage family home, but he forgets about all of it and moves forward with a positive attitude. As the weekend progresses, he discovers chilling evidence of a sinister plot rooted in racial exploitation and manipulation. Dean, a renowned neurosurgeon, reveals his twisted fascination with the perceived physical advantages of black bodies and his desire to harness them for the benefit of an aging white clientele. 

Chris’ fears are confirmed when he stumbles upon a room filled with photographs of Rose’s previous black partners. He realizes that he has been lured into a trap, and his only hope for escape is to outsmart the Armitages and their twisted scheme. 

Through a combination of hypnotism and surgical procedures, his girlfriend’s family have been erasing the identities of black individuals and transplanting the consciousness of wealthy white individuals into their bodies. The revelation shocks Chris to his core, shattering his illusion of acceptance and revealing the insidious depths of racism and privilege that permeate even the most seemingly progressive corners of society. 

As the movie continues to play out, Chris finally confronts the horrors of the Armitage family’s atrocities, He is forced to confront not only the immediate threat to his own survival, but also the broader implications of systemic racism and culture appropriation. WIth the help of Georgina and Walter – who briefly break free from their hypnotic control – Chris mounts a daring escape from the clutches of the estate, fighting tooth and nail to reclaim his agency and expose the truth to the world. Through his resilience and resourcefulness, Chris not only survives but also exposes the twitch behind the Armitage family, ensuring that their heinous actions will not go unpunished. 

Me and my friends absolutely loved this show, it was creepy and interesting. There were so many plot twists and scenes that made me feel uneasy. If you are ever in need of a great psychological and creepy horror film, I suggest you grab some popcorn and turn on the movie “Get Out”.
