Plot[edit]

Photographer Chris Washington reluctantly agrees to meet the family of his girlfriend Rose Armitage, unsure of a warm reception. During their drive to the family's countryside estate, they hit a deer and report the incident. The white policeman asks for Chris' identification even though he was not driving, but Rose intervenes and the encounter goes unrecorded.

At the house, Rose's parents, neurosurgeon Dean and psychiatrist/hypnotherapist Missy, and her brother Jeremy make discomfiting comments about black people. Chris notices that the black workers at the estate are uncannily compliant. Unable to sleep, Chris goes outside to smoke and sees groundskeeper Walter running from the woods. Missy catches Chris returning and talks him into a hypnotherapy session to cure his smoking addiction. In a trance, he recounts the death of his mother in a hit-and-run when he was a child, about which he feels guilty. He sinks into a void Missy calls "the sunken place". He awakens believing he had a nightmare but realizes cigarettes now revolt him. The black housekeeper Georgina unplugs his phone, draining his battery.

Dozens of wealthy white people arrive for the Armitages' annual get-together. They take an interest in Chris, admiring his physique or expressing admiration for black figures such as Tiger Woods. Chris meets Logan King, a black man married to a much older white woman, who also acts strangely.

Chris calls his friend, black TSA Officer Rod Williams, about the hypnosis and the strange behavior at the house. When Chris attempts to stealthily photograph Logan, the camera flash makes Logan hysterical; he implores Chris to "get out". Dean claims Logan suffered an epileptic seizure. Away from the house, Chris persuades Rose to leave with him, while Dean holds an auction with a picture of Chris on display.

Chris sends Logan's photo to Rod, who recognizes him as Andre, a missing person. While packing to leave, Chris finds photos of Rose in prior relationships with black people, including Walter and Georgina. Rose and the family block his exit and Missy hypnotizes him. Suspecting a conspiracy, Rod goes to the police but is derided.

Chris awakens strapped to a chair. A video presentation featuring Rose's grandfather Roman explains that the family transplants the brains of white people into black bodies; the consciousness of the host remains in the "sunken place", watching but powerless. Jim Hudson, a blind art dealer, tells Chris he wants his body so he can gain sight and Chris's artistic talents.

Chris plugs his ears with stuffing pulled from the chair, blocking the hypnotic commands. When Jeremy comes to collect him for the surgery, Chris bludgeons him, impales Dean with the antlers of a mounted stag, and stabs Missy. Chris steals a car and drives away but hits Georgina. Guilty over his mother's death, he carries Georgina into the car, but she is possessed by Rose's grandmother Marianne; she attacks him and Chris crashes, killing her. Rose and Walter, who is possessed by Roman, catch up with him. Chris awakens the real "Walter" with his phone flash; Walter takes Rose's rifle, shoots her, and kills himself. Chris begins to strangle Rose, but cannot bring himself to kill her. A police car arrives and Rose calls for help. The driver is Rod, who has tracked Chris down through the agency. He and Chris drive away as Rose dies.

Cast[edit]

Writer-director Jordan Peele voices the sounds made by the wounded deer, and narrates a UNCF commercial.[11]

Production[edit]

Get Out is Jordan Peele's directorial debut.

The film is the directorial debut of Jordan Peele, who had previously worked in comedy.[12] He felt the horror and comedy genres are similar in that "so much of it is pacing, so much of it reveals", and that comedy gave him "something of a training" for the film.[12] The Stepford Wives (1975) provided inspiration, about which Peele said, "it's a horror movie but has a satirical premise."[13] As the film deals with racism, Peele has stated that the story is "very personal", although he noted that "it quickly veers off from anything autobiographical."[12]

The lead actors, Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams, were cast in November 2015,[14][15] with other roles cast between December 2015[16] and February 2016.[17][18] Principal photography began on February 16, 2016.[19] It was filmed in Fairhope, Alabama, for three weeks, followed by Barton Academy and in the Ashland Place Historic District in midtown Mobile, Alabama.[20]

The film was partially shot at Barton Academy, a historic Greek Revival school building in Mobile, Alabama.

Peele was worried about the film's chances of success, telling the Los Angeles Times, "What if white people don't want to come see the movie because they're afraid of being villainized with black people in the crowd? What if black people don't want to see the movie because they don't want to sit next to a white person while a black person is being victimized on-screen?” [21]

Alternative endings[edit]

Peele originally intended the film to end with Chris being arrested by police for the murder of the Armitages, reflecting the realities of racism, and Rod meeting him in jail. Rod asks Chris for information regarding the Armitage family for investigation, but Chris insists that everything is fine. By the time production had begun, several high-profile police shootings of black people had, in Peele's words, made the situation surrounding racism "more woke", and he decided the film needed a happy ending.[22]

Peele considered several other endings, some of which are included on the DVD and Blu-ray release. In one ending, Rod breaks into the estate and finds Chris, who tells him, "I assure you, I don't know who you're talking about."[23]

Soundtrack[edit]

Michael Abels composed the film's score, which Peele wanted to have "distinctly black voices and black musical references." This proved to be a challenge, as Peele found that African-American music typically has what he termed "at the very least, a glimmer of hope to it." At the same time, Peele also wanted to avoid having a voodoo motif. The final score features Swahili voices as well as a blues influence.[24] The song "Redbone" by Childish Gambino appears at the movie's beginning.[25] Other songs in the film include "Run Rabbit Run" by Flanagan and Allen and "(I've Had) The Time of My Life" by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes.[26]

Themes[edit]

Get Out has been seen as a satire on the dynamics of so-called "West-Wing liberals",[27] who consider themselves to be allies to movements against racism yet do more harm than good. The Guardian wrote, "The thing Get Out does so well – and the thing that will rankle with some viewers – is to show how, however unintentionally, these same people can make life so hard and uncomfortable for black people. It exposes a liberal ignorance and hubris that has been allowed to fester. It's an attitude, an arrogance which in the film leads to a horrific final solution, but in reality, leads to a complacency that is just as dangerous."[28] Peele said about the film, "The real thing at hand here is slavery ... It's some dark shit."[29]

The film also depicts the lack of attention on missing black Americans compared to missing white females. Slate's Damon Young stated the film's premise was "depressingly plausible ... Although black people only comprise 13 percent of America's population, we're 34 percent of America's missing—a reality that exists as the result of a mélange of racial and socioeconomic factors rendering black lives demonstratively less valuable than the lives [of] our white counterparts."[30]

Reception[edit]

Box office[edit]

Get Out grossed $175.5 million in the United States and Canada and $78.7 million in other territories for a worldwide gross of $254.1 million, against a production budget of $4.5 million.[1]

In North America, Get Out was released on February 24, 2017, alongside Collide and Rock Dog, and was expected to gross $20–25 million from 2,773 theaters in its opening weekend.[31] The film made $1.8 million from Thursday night previews and $10.8 million on its first day. It went on to open for $33.4 million, finishing first at the box office. Thirty-eight percent of the film's opening-weekend audience was African American, while 35% was white, with Georgia being its most profitable market.[32] In its second weekend, the film finished in second at the box office behind new release Logan ($88.4 million), grossing $28.3 million, for a drop of 15.4%. Horror films tend to drop at least 60% in their second weekend, so this was above average.[33] In its third weekend, the film grossed $21.1 million, dropping just 25% from its previous week, and finished third at the box office behind newcomer Kong: Skull Island and Logan.[34]

In March 2017, three weeks after its release, Get Out crossed the $100 million mark domestically, making Peele the first black writer-director to do so with his debut movie.[35] On April 8, 2017, the film became the highest-grossing film domestically directed by a black filmmaker, beating out F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton, which grossed $162.8 million domestically in 2015. Gray reclaimed the record two weeks later when The Fate of the Furious grossed $173.3 million on its fourteenth day of release on April 27.[36] Domestically, Get Out is also the highest-grossing debut film based on an original screenplay in Hollywood history, beating the two-decade-long record of 1999's The Blair Witch Project ($140.5 million).[35] By the end of March, the Los Angeles Times had declared the film's success a "cultural phenomenon" noting that in addition to its box office success, "moviegoers have shared countless 'sunken place' Internet memes and other Get Out-inspired fan art across social media." Josh Rottenberg, the editor of the piece, attributed the film's success to the fact that it was released "at one of the most politically charged moments in memory."[21]

Critical response[edit]

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 99% based on 293 reviews, and an average rating of 8.3/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride."[37] It is one of ten films to earn a 99% (six other films) or 100% (three films) rating with 100 or more reviews (it held a 100% approval rating after the first 139 reviews on the site were registered).[38][9] On Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating to reviews, the film has an average weighted score of 84 out of 100, based on 48 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[39] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A–" on an A+ to F scale.[40]

Richard Roeper gave the film 3½ stars, saying: "the real star of the film is writer-director Jordan Peele, who has created a work that addresses the myriad levels of racism, pays homage to some great horror films, carves out its own creative path, has a distinctive visual style—and is flat-out funny as well."[41] Keith Phipps of Uproxx praised the cast and Peele's direction, saying "he brings the technical skill of a practiced horror master is more of a surprise. The final thrill of Get Out—beyond the slow-building sense of danger, the unsettling atmosphere, and the twisty revelation of what's really going on—is that Peele's just getting started."[42] Mike Rougeau of IGN gave the film 9/10, and wrote, "Get Out's whole journey, through every tense conversation, A-plus punchline and shocking act of violence, feels totally earned. And the conclusion is worth each uncomfortable chuckle and moment of doubt."[43] Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave Get Out 3.5/4, and called it a "jolt-a-minute horrorshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit."[44] Scott Mendelson of Forbes said the film captured the zeitgeist and called it a "modern American horror classic."[45]

Film critic Armond White of National Reviewgave a negative review of the film, referring to the film as a "Get-Whitey movie" and stating that it "[reduces] racial politics to trite horror-comedy, it’s an Obama movie for Tarantino fans."[46]

Possible sequel[edit]

In an interview with The Playlist, Peele stated that he has ideas for a Get Out sequel and was open to making one.[88] Peele additionally expressed interest in "a Lego version of Get Out" directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.[89] In December of 2017, Peele had an interview with Vanity Fair in which he discussed fan theories from Reddit delving into the film, confirming which of the most popular were true and false. Peele stated that he and Being John Malkovich director Spike Jonze had discussed the theory that Get Out was a secret stand-alone sequel to Being John Malkovich, and, although admitting that Get Out was never conceived as a sequel to Being John Malkovich or thought of as such until after the film was released, Peele stated that since hearing the theory both himself and Jonze viewed the connection as both films being set in the same continuity, saying that "as far as I’m concerned, it’s true".[90][91][92][93] Regarding his video about the theory in the January 2018 issue of Empire, Peele expressed interest in casting John Malkovich in a Get Out sequel, stating that it would be "cool" to "do the full trilogy".[94]
