Who would've ever thought that a comedian could make such a compelling horror film? That is a thought that has gone through the head of just about anybody who has seen Jordan Peele's Get Out, and the woke thriller has already carved out a place for itself as a modern horror classic. Seriously, if you have not seen this movie yet, do yourself a favor and check it out as soon as possible while it is still in theaters.

One of the biggest reasons for Get Out's success is the way in which the racially charged thriller honors classic horror films that have paved the way for its success. We've gone through the movie and picked out nine of the coolest and most horrific Easter eggs that are sure to get any self-respecting horror fan excited. On that note, let's kick this list off with the horror film that inspired Get Out's terrifying name.

The Amityville Horror Get Out

The Amityville Horror

This reference might be the most on the nose of the bunch, but that doesn't make it any less awesome. Although the line "get out" is uttered in Jordan Peele's film of the same name -- specifically during a genuinely tense scene involving Lakeith Stanfield's character -- the title of the movie is also a direct reference to The Amityville Horror. As most horror fans likely remember, the phrase "get out" is an iconic facet of the Amityville lore, as it is the command shouted by the house as the demonic spirits demand that Father Delaney stop helping the Lutz family.
