Jeff’s Top 13 Horror Films of 2017: #7

Get Out

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. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.

What can I say about Jordan Peele’s horror entry that hasn’t already been said? Yes, it deserves all the accolades being bestowed upon it despite only making the halfway point on this list. Here’s what's great about this movie… It sets you up to be the stereotypical racists ladened story that should lead to torture and death for our hero. But in that you’d be very wrong. There is march darker and sinister plot at play here that while recognizes the stereotypes, sinks much lower inter the realm of mad scientist. Get Out is a top shelf horror film worthy of oscar nominations, a psychological thriller that is must see for all horror fans.
