When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend's (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

After the credits, there's an alternative ending with commentary from Jordan Peele. I'm assuming the Blu-Ray has the commentary for the entire movie, and I really wish it had been included in this rental (especially given that we pay $6 to have it for 24 hours).
It's too easy to give too much away with this film - I want you to view it because it goes way beyond a simple narrative. When "The Matrix" came out, most were quick to condemn it for its violence and praise it for its special effects. Very few reviews recognized what it was saying about us. Jordan Peele wrote, produced and directed the film. In all these areas, he excelled. The movie is tightly written - there is very little lag time. Frankly, the opposite could be said. I needed to watch it twice to take it all in. Peele's direction places a good deal of weight on images as clues, metaphors,etc. There are no grand, sweeping motions, sun-swept grasslands, etc. It is all close, claustrophobic, paranoia-inducing. The acting is as close to perfect as you'll get, especially when you understand what these actors had to do. This is not a picture where people are throwing around axes or defenestrating someone. The horror is all around, the blood and guts are in a dozen quick shots or so but there is definitely real evil here.
So the theme? This is where people tend to be put off. Is this film racist? Was "Network" racist? Any way you want to play it, this movie is a very morbid satire about race relations, something we all seem to have an issue with but something we never discuss. So, of course, this could be shallowly deemed racist. But what if you think instead: would I want to change the people around me like that? Would I want people to think and act the way I do? Do I really have the answer? Peele targeted the comfy White upper-middle class because its mindset is where we are now - most people find overt racism uncomfortable, at the very least. If he used skinheads or Klansmen or some silly stereotype, no discussion would ever be generated. This film pushes the audience - whatever color it may be. And, more broadly, in a time of growing intolerance, it asks people whether there are really any simple answers out there.
The most directly analogous movies are probably Stepford Wives and Rosemary's Baby, but spiritually it has a similar feel to Night of the Living Dead.
Over all this is a great film! Good writing, directing, acting, story, atmosphere, tone. This is what it looks like when you knock a horror film out of the park.
As your watching it, you cant help but get the feel of movies like, stepford wives, eyes wide shut, Manchurian candidate, and other films which play with that "What the hell is really going on here!?"
If you enjoy good films in general, this is a movie you shouldn't miss!
I was very intrigued by this movie and after watching it, I must admit, this was an absolute GEM! Not only was it a well played out movie, it was a mind blowing realization of how our world works. This was probably more farfetched than things are in todays society, but a great representation of what some people experience day to day because of their skin color. I was a bit surprised seeing that Jordan Peele wrote/directed it but DAMN, he has some talent. Rodney was a constant reminder J. Peele had a huge role in this movie cause that guy was hilarious!
The ending was not expected. (which makes a good movie, GREAT!)
Glad the alternate ending wasn't the "actual" ending, but glad it was incorporated because its exactly what would happen in todays world.
BRAVO Jordan Peele. Looking forward to more of your work!
