That was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The acting is horrible, the plot is predictable, and the cinematography is bad. I can't believe how good the reviews of this movie are unless they are fake. We turned the movie off not even halfway through but then I finished it the next day out of morbid curiosity...and it didn't get any better.

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

Racism was more of a platform than the underlying reason for the second generation activities. The Armitage family members clearly did not like each other. The movie tests interpretive skills and is clever in many ways. To only see racism is too simple.

Get Out was not what I was expecting. It portrayed the issue of racism in a very different and odd way. This movie was quite good and thrilling, it had me hooked right till the end with its mysteriousness. Overall, it was a good suspense thriller which had really good acting and a different but interesting storyline.

A disturbing psychological thriller. Quite different from what I was expecting, but in a good way. Great acting and truly suspenseful in some parts.

An excellent film that provides social commentary while it entertains.
This film echos Hitchcock's suspense & David Lynch's surrealism.
Highly recommended!

WOW! Finally, Very good psychological thriller with plenty of suspense, twists and turns that has you on the edge of your seat to the very end without all the blood and gore.

This movie makes me want to go to my black friends and give them a long, loving hug.
I suppose you could call this a highly intelligent horror movie. The writer and director are clearly masters at creating suspense and anticipation. I felt quite tense and anxious from early on in the film, without really knowing a lot about the film in advance. I realized that I was scared and kept saying to myself, alone in the house, "I'm scared." I considered not watching all of it in one sitting but I'm glad that I allowed for continuity. I think this is the first horror/suspense movie that I've ever seen that should be followed by a process/discussion group of your closest loved ones. Black Lives certainly do Matter and this film makes me believe it all the more passionately.

Was rather impressed with this first time director/writer, Jordan Peele (co-wrote the 2016 Keanu film) movie. Had some tense moments and was rather good as a creepy weird/horror film. Thought the acting suited the parts.
However, i did not feel like the ending was as realistic or as good as the "alternative ending" that is provided on the DVD.
There is a segment of the bonus material that does provide some interesting background information and even some clips, not used in the film, that actually helped to know the bigger story (not the deleted scene section).
I would have given it a better rating, if not for the ending provided in the released version.
