My favourite thing about this trailer? Each moment wings unfurl to that beautiful music – especially at 1:19. The combination of the visual effects, the score and the monster’s sheer size makes for an almost, dare I say, ‘spiritual experience?’
To be clear, I’m in for the special effects and would truly be delighted if this were a disaster movie that pleasantly surprised me in more than one or two ways.
Kyle Chandler, Charles Dance, Ziyi Zhang, Aisha Hinds, Thomas Middleditch, Ken Watanabe and O’Shea Jackson also star.
Meeting a girlfriend’s parents for the first time is scary for any young man but when you’re a young African-American man (Daniel Kaluuya) visiting his Caucasian girlfriend’s mysterious family estate for the first time, there’s another level of scary that comes into play. And it’s writer / director Jordan Peele’s exploration of this fear combined with his smart social and cultural observations that make Get Out a thing to see.
As a self-confessed wuss, especially where scary movies are concerned, as soon as Get Out started, I was more than ready for the film to end. Not because I was having a bad time, as such. I simply knew that something bad was going to happen and I was looking forward to the point when it was over.
In spite of my ‘wussy’ ways, I did make it to the very end of Get Out, a well constructed mystery where the immediate scares come in the suspenseful moments when you don’t quite know how the impending horror is going to take shape.
Watch this movie because it’s worthy and you probably won’t have nightmares afterwards. At least not on the night you watch the movie. I didn’t; though I did have plenty of other thoughts going on… so that’s probably why. Or, maybe tonight is when the scares will come. Tonight…
