Ep. 02-17: Get Out (2017)

Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, go upstate to visit her parents for the weekend. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s being in an interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth far more sinister than he ever could have imagined.

Former comedian, Jordan Peele, directed this modern masterpiece a few short years ago and, as a result, will forever be enshrined in the hallowed halls of horror. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture (winner in the Original Screenplay category), Get Out was the first of what Peele promises to be many more horror films with him at the helm. Join us as we discuss past horror keys that influenced this film (many openly acknowledged by Peele himself), as well as those that lift it miles above average run-of-the-muck scare-fare. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys sinks deep into the sunken place, revealing the secrets from within.

Note: We know that Ari Aster directed Hereditary and Midsommar and that Robert Eggers directed The Witch and The Lighthouse. We were just excited at the moment and made an error in speaking. Tim also happened to watch some of these films on the same day which added to the confusion. This error is also addressed at the end of the show.
