Decades of Horror 1990s And Beyond Episode 37 â€“ Get Out (2017)Get OutÂ is a story of simmering racial tension. Jordan Peele decided to go with not an overtly racist family of white folks as the antagonist. No, instead Chris must go up against the seemingly well-meaning if an unintentionally cringy family of his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams). While the seemingly harmless Dean (Bradley Whitford) and Missy Armitage (Catherine Keener) are very inviting, something sinister lies beneath their smiles. Especially with the unusually chipper house staff of Georgina (Betty Gabriel) and Walter (Marcus Henderson) who make Chris raise a few eyebrows. Hopefully, he can raise his legs quick enough toÂ Get OutÂ before things get too crazy. Even though Thomas just discussedÂ Get OutÂ on a Horror News Radio episode a little under a year ago, he just had to get a new one out. Not just because of the Oscar nominations or February being Black History Month. No, the big reason was simply this; there weren’t any black people on a Gruesome Magazine podcast discussing the film yet. So, Thomas enlists familiar voices Yonathan Habtemichael and Shakyl Lambert as well as newcomer Torrey Depina to discussÂ Get OutÂ as a film that represents the Black experience. Yes, even a horror film like Get OutÂ speaksÂ to race relations, cultural fetishization, and systemic oppression. But don’t worry. There’s plenty of silly talk about Denzel Washington, wrestling and horror cliches to lighten the mood.
