Get Out is practically superfluous if you’ve seen the theatrical trailer. Praised as a horror movie satire and biting social commentary, Jordan Peele's hypnosis-infused Stepford Wives knock-off stops short of actually digging in to its mixed-race-Meet the Parents premise. First-time filmmaker Peele has a knack for recreating elements he’s seen in a dozen other genre films, but his screenplay mutes the provocative voice he brought to his hit TV sketch series, Key & Peele. Though bolstered by an exceptional cast and the occasional bright spot of sinister weirdness (you'll never drink tea again), this mediocre genre flick has nothing new to say, and seems content with congratulating its audience for showing up to an allegedly edgy thriller. Just as trailers protect moviegoers from having to be surprised by anything, Get Out creates a cinematic safe space for multiplex-minded hipsters, eliminating any need for socio-political soul-searching once the lights come up.
