    Get Out


    Get Out is a relief.

    Yes its a political film but not in the over-the-top, "we've seen this before" kind of way. I was so scared it would fall into a cliché like that but it didn't.

    Anyways, despite what your first impression may be, this isn't exactly a scary movie. It's more period drama with a disturbing twist. It will still offer some scares and definitely a disturbing story, but don't expect a screamer.

    It follows the story…
