Jordan Peele (of Key and Peele) is known for his comedy, but this horror movie Get Out, which he wrote and directed, is going to have him laughing straight to the bank. Honestly, it’s probably one of the scariest movie trailers that we’ve ever seen. Like, it’s f*cking frightening. And we can’t wait to see it. Here’s a quick plot synopsis:
When a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).
At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
Maybe it’s the fact that the preview uses a ton of messed up violin strings, or maybe it’s the fact that this is almost a believable horror story perfect for the current times, but this movie is going to be a box office hit that M Knight Shalamadingdong is kicking himself over for not thinking of first.
