We at Advocate Channel love spooky season, and to celebrate Halloween, we're sharing a different spooky movie every day until the 31st! Today's pick is a newcomer to the horror genre, but has already made a profound impact: Get Out.
Released in 2018, Jordan Peele made his directorial debut with Get Out. At the time, Peele was widely known for his work in comedy, with projects including Key & Peele, Keanu, and Big Mouth. However, the star has a deep passion for horror films and showcased his love for the genre with Get Out. The film opened with rave reviews and set a new standard for what a horror movie can be. With elements of humor, current events, and elusive easter eggs, Peele's first film in the director's chair will likely go down as one of the most unique horror films of all time.
Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, LaKeith Stanfield, Catherine Keener, Bradley Whitford, Lil Rel Howery, and Caleb Landry Jones, Get Out follows Chris and his girlfriend Rose as they take a trip to visit Rose's parents. The trip however doesn't go as planned as Chris discovers a dark and horrible secret about Rose's family.
The film explores the political and racial tensions that exist in the United States through creative storytelling. Peele uses his work to identify these issues, and ultimately gives viewers a lot to think about upon finishing the film.
While it may not be a Halloween movie, Get Out is the horror movie that will certainly give you the spooks.
