NOTE: This review contains a spoiler

"Get Out" is a very violent, strange film about an interracial couple and it plays on stereotypes in an offensive way. A black man named Logan, who is dating a white woman, Rose, is introduced to her parents and things get very awkward. Rose's parents live in a remote area where the residents act very strangely.

Rose's mother is a psychiatrist who hypnotizes Logan (and other black men) to their detriment, for insulting and degrading reasons. The men end up trapped there, essentially kept as slaves by racist people who seek to exploit them for their physical prowess. The film shows black people ass specimens whose bodies are to be painfully used and exploited to allow dying white people the chance to surgically live longer.

The hype surrounding this film was just that - hype. It is unoriginal, as it rips off the 2005 movie "The Skeleton Key." "Get Out" is also an insult to all interracial relationships. The stereotypes are terrible and belittling. The dialogue exploits racial wounds. The message you get from this film is black people are objects to be used and abused. This film has nothing to do with equality or racial understanding. It promotes suspicious and mistrust.
