Get Out ★★★★

This strikes a brilliant balance between creepy and fun — it manages to be both things at once, without either detracting from the other. It's built entirely with this duality as a central mechanic, and does a great job of exploring its limits.

I saw one of the big twists coming miles away (avoiding spoilers, let's call it “the box of photos”), so I wondered if this could have worked even better as a Touch of Evil-esque “the audience knows what's coming” kind of deal. But then I realized that having a nagging feeling that that is what's going on is really well aligned with the film's themes and so now I'm thinking I want to watch this again.
