“The best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings,” American director, Jordan Peele stated in an interview on his new movie “Get Out” with Business Insider. “Get Out” is a social thriller which focuses on Chris, a young African-American man who notices things are strange when he meets his Caucasian girlfriend’s family for the first time. The family’s overwhelming efforts to comfort Chris turns out to be a horrifying attempt to condition his mind. The movie surprisingly earned a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and one critic described the thriller as an “exhilarating, smart and freak-out about a Black man in a White nightmare.”
Peele plans to create more films on ‘social monsters’, which will be a series of movies much like “Get Out” that expose the everyday horrors we tend to face. A new movie genre was even created in the midst of all the hype: social thrillers. Peele discusses that he wants to give people new perspectives on horror films; he wishes to create movies that’ll terrify and make viewers reflect back on what they’ve watched. There hasn’t been a release of titles or time schedules for his next films, but once released his fans will definitely be excited.
