I was able to get a DVD copy of Get Out, a Horror movie by Jordan Peele in his first directorial debut.

I like the way the movie blended horror, comedy and mystery all in one.  One thing that I noticed about the movie is how it seem to be about racism but ends up being another M. Night Shyamalan type of movie in my opinion. I felt that Lil Rel Howery had stolen the movie as the TSA agent Rod Williams.

The movie is about a young black Photographer named Chris Washington who is going to visit his white girlfriend Rose Armitage’s parents. While there he first finds out about a gathering going on at the same time as his visit.  After a while he starts to feel on edge after a few of the guest say a few thing to him.   I don’t want to spoil the rest of the movie, but the twist and the ending was different than what I expected. 

This movie had a fresh take on the genre of the horror comedy movies (haunted house, scary movie etc.).  I’m not sure if this was the direction the director was taking but this is how I felt about the movie.  The action was there, the comedy timing was there and some of the horror elements was there. 

The DVD special features like extended scenes or alternate ending and the interview with the director and some of the cast.  The following are extended scenes Rose Hypnosis, Extended Rutherford, Badminton, Sunken Place Deer, and Detective Latoya Extended.  The original ending (which seem too cliché)  Rod Arrival 1 sex slave, Rod Arrival 2 don’t give up on love, Rod Arrival 3 white girls (funny one),Rod Arrival 4 cousin single, Rod Arrival 5 bathroom,  Rod arrival 6 rose’s vote.

  Also there was an interview (Chance the rapper) with the cast Daniel Kaluuya as Chris Washington, Allison Williams as Rose Armitage, Lil Rel Howery as Rod Williams and director Jordan Peele. It was great listening to different stories that the casts had to share.  In my opinion this is a good movie to watch if you like movies with a twist.
