The following is going to be as spoiler free as possible. However, you may be able to figure out what's going on in Get Out after reading, so keep that in mind.

We're not sure if you've heard this, but Get Out is a really good movie. If you don't believe our glowing review of it, perhaps any of the 139 other reviews on Rotten Tomatoes will persuade you to believe that it's actually that good. There has yet to be a single bad review of the movie. We're not even sure how that's possible, and yet, here we are.

What exactly did Jordan Peele do in his directorial and solo writing debut that made the movie so utterly unbelievable? He made a horror movie that will scare the hell out of you. He wrote some of the most current and important social commentary in recent memory. He also made a satire that's not without laugh-out-loud moments. Here are just a few of the things that Get Out does right.

It's A Horror Movie For Non-Horror Fans

Technically, Get Out will be classified as a horror movie. However, if horror is not the genre that draws you to the theater, that's ok. If you're expecting a gory, violent bloodbath, don't. While there is a bit of that, the vast majority of Get Out does not find its terror in violence, it comes entirely from the unease that our hero has to deal with throughout the entire film. It doesn't have to make you jump in order to scare you. Instead, it does the job on an emotional level, by causing you to feel that something is wrong, while showing you very little.
