Not only have people created hilarious memes, but there's even a #GetOutChallenge.
Jordan Peele’s box office hit Get Out has left many talking since its release just two weeks ago. With a nearly perfect intermingling of horror, comedy and subtle blistering truths about the Black man’s experience in America, Peele definitely hit the nail on the head with this one.
The thriller is about a Black man’s weekend getaway to his White girlfriend’s parent’s estate. As the weekend progresses, things start to get weird after a series of disturbing occurrences leave him to believe that something isn’t quite right in their quite town.
In a review in The New Yorker, the film is described as one that successfully “lurks within the hearts of Blacks who must navigate white spaces.”
In fact, it’s one that a Cosmopolitan writer describes as “the terrifying truth about White women,” which refers to the appalling end of the film.

Get Out, which is Peele’s first dive into the genre, is one that he says won’t end here. Over the next few years, he said that he plans to release an entire series of thrillers about ‘social demons.’
Peele, 38, is an actor, comedian, and now film director. Until now, he was known by most as a co-host of the comedy series Key & Peele.
In addition to rave reviews and a rare perfect 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes, the film has become the Internet’s latest subject. In addition to comical takes from various scenes in the film, people have also started a #GetOutChallenge.
Some of the trends include people’s new fearful view on teacups, using a camera flash on those that may not be in their right mind or just hilarious re-enactments of running at full speed as seen in the film.
