Critic Reviews of "Get Out"
J. HobermanMarch 28, 2017
Jordan Peele's semi-parodic horror film Get Out has a complexity worthy of its historical moment.
Mary Elizabeth WilliamsMarch 27, 2017
By focusing the storyline on a particular form of racism -- the kind that's often disguised as peculiar envy -- Get Out reveals something more insidious.
Stephanie ZacharekMarch 17, 2017
Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa.
Peter RainerMarch 10, 2017
What makes Get Out more than just a slam-bang scarefest is that, in its own darkly satiric way, it is also a movie about racial paranoia that captures the zeitgeist in ways that many more "prestigious" movies don't.
J. R. JonesMarch 02, 2017
Jordan Peele makes his directing debut with a horror movie that sticks closely to genre convention even as its ribbing of white liberals hardens into a social point.
Thelma AdamsFebruary 27, 2017
Following Oscar's pomp and self-importance, viewing Jordan Peele's fiercely entertaining thriller offers the perfect awards hangover cure. Audiences leave the theater shaken and stirred.
Simon Miraudo Student EdgeApril 23, 2017
Jordan Peele's Get Out plucks a raw nerve with skill and style. Strange, funny and confronting, it's the horror satire of our age.
Kong Rithdee Bangkok PostApril 07, 2017
Get Out is about how we should get out of our own abyss conditioned by familiarity and history, and it's one of the smartest films out there.
Marija Djurovic Cairo360April 05, 2017
Get Out is one strong, creepy and at times, yes, funny picture which successfully combines horror and comedy with a relevant and message.
Kevin A. Ranson MovieCrypt.comApril 03, 2017
Well cast and slickly edited... situations are horrific in their banality... who knew teacups could be sinister?
Cameron McAllister Christianity TodayMarch 31, 2017
A marvel of tightly controlled pacing, off-kilter visuals, and rich atmosphere, Peele's film owes a good deal of its exquisite shocks to the claustrophobic terrors of Rosemary's Baby and the manicured dread of Bryan Forbes's The Stepford Wives.
PopMattersMay 23, 2017
Get Out: is a masterfully done horror film that builds its chilling menace slowly and does not reveal itself until it's too late to resist.
The Blu SpotMay 22, 2017
Jordan Peele's Get Out contains a fascinating idea and some intriguing social commentary, but it's ultimately let down by bland execution and writing that never allows the idea to come to full fruition.
El Mundo (Spain)May 18, 2017
The strenght of the film is in the perfection of the narrative artifact that always seems right in taking each decision, always brilliant, always sour. [Full review in Spanish]
El Pais (Spain)May 18, 2017
A major work in which everything oozes talent. [Full review in Spanish]
Blog de cineMay 18, 2017
Peele plays a risky move using the film genre to establish a very real terror that usually faces hypocrisy. [Full review in Spanish]
El FinancieroMay 17, 2017
Pessimistic, violent and scathing, Jordan Peele's debut film is a faithful reflection of a divided country. [Full review in Spanish]

Stephen RootBirth date: 17 November 1951, Sarasota, Florida, USADescription: One of the most prolific character actors working today, Stephen Root has worked alongside many of the biggest names in Hollywood. Born in Sarasota, Root majored in acting and broadcasting at the University of Florida and remains a die-hard Gator fan. After three years of touring the U.S. and Canada with the National Shakespeare Company, Root settled in New York, honing his craft in many regional theaters and starring off-Broadway in 'Journey's End' and 'The Au Pair Man'. His Broadway debut came in 'So Long On Lonely Street', which was followed by the Tony award-winning production of 'All My Sons', with Richard Kiley. A starring role as 'Boolie', in the Broadway national touring company of 'Driving Miss Daisy' with Julie Harris, brought Root to Los Angeles where he now resides. Back on the boards, he recently starred with Helen Hunt and Lyle Lovett in ;Much Ado About Nothing', an LA Shakespeare Production. His first acting role on screen came in George A. Romero's cult horror classic Monkey Shines (1988).

LilRel HoweryBirth date: 17 November 1951, Sarasota, Florida, USADescription: From the impressionable age of eleven, Milton "Lil Rel" Howery set out to make the world laugh. With influential comedians like Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, and Louie Anderson in their prime, Lil Rel spent the early 90's tuned into classic programs like Def Comedy Jam and Raw. While other young adolescents in his West Side Chicago neighborhood were doing typical juvenile things, he was studying and mastering the art of comedy. Now as a well-respected comedian, actor and writer, Lil Rel has become a comedic staple in Chicago and a rising star nationally.As a teen who sought worldwide fame and success, Lil Rel wanted much more than to tell jokes to his family and loved ones. He was immediately drawn to the production and performance aspects of entertaining. At seventeen years old, Lil Rel wrote original comedic scenes for one of the most critical audiences he'd face: his high school peers. After starring in the school play and effortlessly delivering side-cramping laughs, his impact was undeniable. His peers and teachers offered enthusiastic approval that left Lil Rel humbled and reflective.After finishing high school, Lil Rel set out in search of the comedy spot that would offer him a chance to perform. He found that opportunity at The Lion's Den in Chicago's East Side. Too young to get in, he arrived earlier than most in hopes that the owner would bend the rules. He did. After walking out on to the stage, Lil Rel delivered his routine. An apparent hit, Lil Rel became a weekly regular at The Lion's Den before continuing on to become one of Chicago's most prominent comedians and hosts at an innumerable amount of comedy clubs and showcases.As Lil Rel's fan base grew, so did his opportunities. He submitted a performance tape to BET's Comic View casting department and was offered his first paid television spot in 2001. Proving to be a natural comedian with an undeniable stage presence, he was invited to perform again on the following season. With Comic View at its peak of popularity, the exposure launched him to the next phase of his career. By earning the respect of powerful show executives through his hilarious story-telling and knowledgeable off-stage demeanor, Lil Rel became a regularly featured comedian all over television and the nation.With small appearances like his national film debut in MGM Studio's "Barbershop 2" along with featured roles in urban hits like TV One's "Bill Bellamy's: Who Got Jokes" and HBO's "Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy," Lil Rel has been a welcome guest in inner-city homes for years. One of Lil Rel's most valuable television appearances was NBC's Last Comic Standing. Though he did not win the show, his memorable characters (including the infamous "neighborhood hoodrat") resonated well with at-home viewers. His crossover appeal landed him a spot on NBC's Diversity Showcase, as well as his hometown's second largest comedy experience, the "Just for Laughs Chicago Festival."In 2009, Lil Rel began his first business, The Lil Rel Company. Initially launched as the holding company for his stand-up comedy material, The Lil Rel Company now houses the entire Lil Rel brand. Lil Rel continues to perform at comedy clubs, showcases, and colleges around the country. In July of 2010, he appeared on Comedy Central's "Russell Simmons Presents: Stand-up at the El Rey." His new CD, "I Know You Hear Me, But Are You Listening," is available on iTunes.

Richard HerdBirth date: 26 September 1932, Boston, Massachusetts, USADescription: Utilitarian character actor Richard Herd is one of those stern familiar faces you've seen countless times on film and TV but can't quite place the name. The stage-trained actor who shares a striking resemblance to actor Karl Malden never found the one role that would make him a household name, but he has made up for it with a number of rich and rewarding stage, film and TV assignments bolstered by his trademark authoritarian look and stance.Born on September 26, 1932, is the son of another Richard, a railroad engineer and WWII vet who died when the boy was quite young. The younger Herd suffered from bone marrow cancer which affected the growth of his legs as a child. As a result, he was educated at the Industrial School for Crippled Children during his formative years. Luckily, loving care and several operations saved his legs from deformity.It was his mother Katherine's love of music that ignited Richard's initial desire to perform. Trained on the drums, he received early acting training on radio and in summer stock (Liberty Mutual Theatre in Boston) during his high school years and in the late 1940s studied Shakespeare under veteran Claude Rains at one point. Other plays such as "Our Town" and "Sing Out Sweet Land," and the children's theatre productions of "Penrod" and "Robin Hood" helped to beef up his early resume.Richard enlisted in the Army during the Korean War but injured a knee in basic training which led to an honorable discharge within 90 days of his enlistment. He did, however, go on to work for the Army Signal Corps in a host of training films.Richard continued to gather experience in such classical plays as "The Miser" and "A Month in the Country". With several summer stock runs, Shakespearean bus-and-truck tours and industrial films under his belt, he finally made his New York debut in the minor role of an usher in The Dress Circle" at Carnegie Hall. He also became a member of the Player's Club.Making a highly inauspicious film debut in the minor role of a coach in the film Hercules in New York (1970), which was the showcase debut for the massively-muscled Arnold Schwarzenegger, Richard didn't settle in Hollywood until the mid 1970s after replacing actor Richard Long (who died before filming began) in the role of Watergate figure James McCord in All the President's Men (1976). Although Richard made a handful of other movies throughout the rest of the decade (I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (1977), F.I.S.T (1978), The China Syndrome (1979), The Onion Field (1979)), he appeared with much more frequency on TV, playing stern, authoritarian types on episodes of "Kojak," "The Rockford Files," "The Streets of San Francisco," (starring the similar-looking Karl Malden), "Rafferty," "Eight Is Enough" and "Starsky & Hutch," as well as in the TV movies Pueblo (1973), Captains and the Kings (1976), The Hunted Lady (1977), Dr. Scorpion (1978), Kate Bliss and the Ticker Tape Kid (1978), Terror Out of the Sky (1978) (TV)_, Marciano (1979) (TV)_ and, most notably, Ike: The War Years (1980) in which he portrayed General Omar Bradley.Never finding the one support role that might have made him a character star, Richard has nevertheless been featured impressively on all three mediums for the past four decades. On stage he appeared in a pre-Broadway tryout of "On the Waterfront" and played to great applause in productions of "Other People's Money" and "The Big Knife". His finest hour on stage, however, would come with his portrayal of the epic film producer in the one-man show "Cecil B. DeMille Presents," which he has toured throughout the country. On TV, Richard has guested on most of the popular TV programs of late, including "Desperate Housewives" and CSI: Miami" and is probably best remembered for his recurring roles as Admiral Noyce on Seaquest DSV (1993), as Jason Alexander's boss Wilhelm in the sitcom classic Seinfeld (1989) and as Admiral Owen Paris in Star Trek: Voyager (1995). A few of his lightweight cinematic crowd-pleasers include Private Benjamin (1980), Deal of the Century (1983), Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987) and Sgt. Bilko (1996).On occasion Richard has moved into the director/producer/writer's chair. He directed the play "Idle Wheels" for the Road Theatre Company in North Hollywood, was a producer of the N.Y. play "Agamemnon" and co-producer (and performer) of the play "The Couch with the Six Insides," and, as a playwright, had a presentation of his play "Prisoner of the Crown" produced at Dublin's Abbey Theatre.Married briefly at the age of 19, Richard remarried and had two children (Richard Jr. and Erica) by his second wife. That marriage also ended in divorce, but his third (in 1980), to actress Patricia Herd (Patricia Crowder Ruskin) has lasted. Patricia has a daughter from an earlier marriage.
