Thriller films are making a comeback in a major way.
The upcoming movie Get Out tells the story of a young African-American man who visits his White girlfriend’s family estate, and gets caught up in a more sinister reason for the invitation.
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams) have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean.
Although Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
The Jordan Peele-directed film stars Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, and Catherine Keener. Check out the intense trailer for Get Out above, in theaters this February.
