Predictable. Ordinary. Boring. Tries too hard to make a political statement.

Although we may have seen horror movies like this before, Get Out's suspense elements were well thought out and the direction was on point. Great acting too.

You've only got to ask one question- How did the main character get the chair stuffing ( cotton? ) into his ears? The whole film falls apart on this one point ( the answer is that he couldn't possibly have been able to do it - if you watch the movie you'll know why ). Really amateurish to mess up such an obvious and important plot point- and if he could reach down to the armchair to get cotton ( per the comment below ) then why didn't he undo the straps with his teeth and escape- because the movie is amateurish and not very well constructed.
Basically, it's a rip-off of the " Stepford Wives "( 1972 ) with the main theme switched from patriarchal inequality to racial inequality ( with a small twist added to it so it's not a total rip-off ). I thought the main actor Daniel Kaluuya overacted wildly- it was like he was acting in a silent movie from the 1920's his facial movements were so over exaggerated.

An excellent premise that is almost carried to cinematic perfection, it is troubled with some pacing issues in the first half, but finishes with an excellent existential horror finish that raises questions about identity and race. Mucho recommended with a sativa.

Brilliant! All the way around, it is very hard to believe this is a first time director. A must see.

Up for several Oscars, this is a must watch. A fresh story, no gratuitous violence, a psychological thriller that you should probably not watch too close to bedtime. Exploring inter-racial relations this will give you a jolt that you will not forget any time soon.

Awesome. This movie is so good. I applaud the actors, especially "Georgina". She was able to cry and smile, laugh at the same time. She accurately portrayed the horror she was in also. The story was original and kept my attention throughout. Bravo.

Four Oscar noms. Transgressive. Worth watching.

This is more funny than scary, though the “horror” aspects (and social commentary) are all there. The “scares” are mostly of the type that make you jump, the laugh (maybe a little nervously); the special feature interviews highlight the similarity between “getting a laugh” and “getting a scare” in movie – both are about perfect timing. The true “horror” is in the concept: re-enslavement of Black people by high-tech and brainwashing. Disguised as a horror movie, this film is really a look at attitudes about racism and stereotypes, and is likely to start some serious discussions.

I'm not sure what's more repulsive--the mindless adulation of this film or the film itself.

"You know what I say? I say, one down, a couple hundred thousand to go. I don't mean to get on my high horse, but -- I'm telling you -- I do not like the deer. I'm sick of it. They're taking over, they're like rats, they're destroying the ecosystem. I see a dead deer on the side of the road and I think, 'That's a start'."
