Get Out

Get Out ★★★½

Jordan Peele is definitely a director to watch.  For all the issues I have with get out, the tone and presentation are marvelous, and definitely cement Peele as an upcoming horror ingénue. 

My main issues with the film comes with its last third and the fact that it relies a tad to much on generic horror cliches. A jumpscare isn’t made scarier just by adding loud sound effects/music, in fact, it just makes it stupid. And the last third of this film just dissolves into a standard chase sequence/ action setpiece. When two thirds of this film break the modern horror formula, it’s jarring to see a film go right back to them.

Still, a great film, and in this day and age, an amazing horror film.
