Jordan Peele of Key & Peele fame wrote and directed a horror movie called Get Out, and it has Black Twitter reacting. Oh yeah, it’s a horror flick that also incorporates interracial dating, Black people in horror movie stereotypes, fear of white people and a hint of bugged out comedy.
Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), the Black guy, is off with his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), the white girl, to meet her parents for the first time. The weekend getaway goes from awkward to horrifying via hypnosis, strange housekeepers and what looks like an attempted fade via lacrosse stick.
And yes, that’s Darius from FX’s Atlanta.
Check out the trailer below, as well as Twitter reactions on the following pages.
We’re intrigued. Get Out is due in theaters February 24.
