Jordan Peele’s horror thriller ‘Get Out’ is certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes


Rotten Tomatoes has awarded Jordan Peele’s new horror-thriller ‘Get Out’ with a incredibly rare 100% certified fresh rating.

Comedian Jordan Peele surprised many of us with his directorial debut of Get Out, a horror-thriller set to release this upcoming Friday.

As of right now the movie has a certified fresh rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics have been raving about the film! All 32 reviews are positive. But that impressive score could soon change with the film’s upcoming  release.

The film follows “Rose” (Allison Williams) and “Chris” (Daniel Kaluuya) an interracial couple who travel to visit Rose’s parents (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) at their sprawling, country estate for a meet and greet.

Chris expects meeting Rose’s family will be a somewhat awkward social experience with some racial tension. And from watching the movie trailer I’m reminded of Sidney Poitier’s timeless film, Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner, but with a much sinister premise.

What Chris doesn’t expect is the weird vibes he picks up from the fellow black guests and housekeepers in attendance. He quickly learns that many black men have gone missing in the area. If he doesn’t get out he could end up a slave to the suburbs.

Raving Reviews

Read what some of the critics are saying about Get Out.

Matt Goldberg, Collider

"“The insightful racial commentary will come as no surprise to those who have enjoyed ‘Key & Peele,’ but even fans will be impressed by Peele’s level of skill and confidence in his first feature. He utilizes the sharp subtext that the horror genre provides to create a cutting commentary on racial dynamics. The film functions like a punch in the mouth to every Obama voter that went to Trump.  It strikes at every white person who professes their lack of racism while they idiotically exclaim that ‘All lives matter.’ Peele sees how far white people have come, and points out how little distance we’ve traveled. ‘Get Out’ isn’t meant to be reassuring. It isn’t meant to be conciliatory. It’s a bucket of ice water, and it will give you chills.”"

Jonathan Hatfull, Sci Fi Now

"“The film was shot last year but feels more relevant than ever in our current political climate, and ‘Get Out’ doesn’t only deliver an important, powerful message, it shows us a point of view that we too rarely see in horror cinema. This is an excellent horror that is gripping, scary, witty and timely, and it’s got something to say. Even if you don’t think all of it comes off, you will be talking about it.”"

I was pretty excited to watch this movie when the trailer premiered a few months ago. Now I’m more pumped than ever. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll go buy my tickets tonight. I never watch movies in the theater without checking Rotten Tomatoes first. Who would want to waste their money on a crap movie?
