In mid October 2017, Jordan Peele surprised students at a UCLA class called "Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and Black Horror Aesthetic", a course created after the success and popularity of this film. With the help of Tananarive Due, a college professor at UCLA, Peele secretly sat in the last row as class was in session. Professor Rue asked the question, "What do you think the director was trying to say about the coveting of black bodies?" to which Peele raised his hand, much to the surprise and joy of the class once they recognized him. The students gave him thunderous applause and a standing ovation as he went to the front of the class, and Peele ended up teaching the students. The moment was briefly captured and shared on Twitter.

When Rose's car hits the deer, the deer is moving from left to right, so it would seem the driver's side would be damaged. However, the deer is leaping high in the air at the point of impact and hits the front passenger side, thereby causing damage on that side. See more »
600th Review: As Lingering and Effective As You Would Want It To Be
Get Out is full of touches and surprises, strong acting, excellent direction, and above it, it's a ride, a trip to a place Hollywood doesn't normally go - it offers a unique experience - and in this age of copycat, cookie cutter safe choice cinema, it stands out by a mile.
Get Out is that rare beast - a film that leaves you satisfied yet pondering. We objected to its constant referral as a horror film - it's an effective thriller with mild horror elements - but it is not a gore/slasher movie - this is more about getting under the skin, and inside the mind, of the viewer.
The plot is simple: girlfriend takes boyfriend home. Home is not what home seems to be. Fun ensues. The genius of this is the way it plays on both white and black perceptions - we asked how the film would be if you reversed all the roles (pretty darn effective) etc;
Get out and see it.
