Get Out

Saw Get Out on Thursday. It was excellent, but it's hard for me to say I enjoyed it. I'm not a big fan of horror movies, but I'm glad I went, I supposed. It's surprising it's Peele's first directorial effort, since it's really well done, and the cinematography is great. It's very much aware of horro...
