“Gripping, scary, witty and timely.” So reads one tagline to Jordan Peele’s remarkably unique 2017 horror, Get Out, and as 5 word reviews go, it’s pretty accurate in its summation. Get Out is a very fresh take on the horror movie, paying homage to genre classics and conventions and blending them with comedy, and dark social satire. The result is a thoroughly modern horror film with a social commentary to make – much as George A. Romero in his 1978 horror classic The Dawn of the Dead. With the rise of gore horror and otherwise unimaginative and staid genre films, it’s refreshing to view a genuinely smart horror film. Jordan Peele is interested in more than just jump scares, and instead directs a film that can take on social issues whilst framed by its wider horror narrative.
