Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Get Out

Never quite betters its amazing prologue. Finding a balance between contemporary horror movie cliché & social satire, it creates a scene that is not only unnerving, but thought-provoking too. The main narrative flaunts its absurd sci-fi subtext as if trying to critique the genre itself, but while clever, funny & engaging throughout, the characters are two-dimensional & the ending lacks the courage of its convictions.
