Young photographer Chris Washington agrees to meet his girlfriend Rose Armitrage's (Allison Williams) parents over the weekend. He asks her if she told her folks that he's black and she says they're not racist, that it doesn't matter. At first everything is great-her parents are welcoming and everything is perfect. But there's something peculiar about the Armitage's African-American servants. They seem a bit like zombies. And when the mother, Missy Armitrage (Catherine Keener) gets Chris alone one night she performs some very disturbing hypnotism on him, saying it will cure his addiction to smoking. Then, at the big family party that's happening the next day there are more than a few racial insults which seem to upset Rose far more than it does Chris. It's here that they are introduced to the only other black guest-a man married to an older white woman. And he's behaving just like the awkward servants. This makes Chris a bit paranoid, particularly when he emails a photo of the guy to his friend, who identifies him as an acquaintance from years ago. When they do a google search on him the police report him as missing for six months. What's going on in this Suburban neighborhood?
This is one of those movies that keeps you guessing until the end. It has the feel of THE STEPFORD WIVES and DEAD & BURIED (1981). GET OUT is perhaps the best horror film this year. Highly recommended.
