Being a fan of Jordan Peele from Key & Peele, I came to the movie knowing his comedic and satirical chops, and his directorial debut definitely doesn't disappoint. I am rarely a fan of horror, but when horror is used how it should be - to magnify real societal wounds and inequalities then I become the biggest fan. Hollywood horror films nowadays are jump scares, cash cows and unnecessary violence and gore without realistic characters. Get Out stands out among a handful others recently to really use the genre well.
