As a fan of horror movies, I honestly feel that most of plots this genre’s movies are not reasonable, we have to lower our intelligence to admire the movies with hardly created thrilling factors. The recent horror movie “Get Out” is an unbelievably smart horror movie, its plot details have profound meaning that makes me think over again and again. This is a rare chance, I remember the last time I watched a high quality horror likes “Get Out” was “The Sixth Sense” in 1999!
This horror movie does not relate to any ghosts and monsters, the frightening factors are totally relying on the talent of the director and the plot. The atmosphere of the plot seems to be very relax, but the inner tensions were wrapped closely with details. Each dialogue and even a small movement can be a key element to the whole movie, and all details are revealed clearly at the end.
Although the movie talks about the old thread of USA—racial discrimination, it is described in a novel way that is full of unbelievable surprise! The main protagonist Chris is a young and talented black photographer, and date with a Caucasian girlfriend Rose several months. Rose wants to bring Chris to meet her parents, the boyfriend originally fears the parents will care about his skin colour, but he gains unexpected hospitality later. Rose’s father is a neurosurgeon and her mother is a psychiatrist/hypnotherapist. They seem to impress their daughter’s alternative choice.
The Caucasian family has one male and one female servant, their strange facial expression and eccentric behaviours seems like the condition of unemancipation of black slave. However they seem to receive respect; the dialogue between the Caucasian and Chris are mostly about the praise of black people, the over enthusiasm of the people increase the trepidation of Chris. Each dialogue, the little action of Chris’s tobacco addiction, stirring spoon sound of the hypnotist—every scene is the attraction of great acts to ensure the audience to follow the plot! The shocking conspiracy in the end causes everyone shivering and sweating, as we do not know how is the end of Chris!
A rare and smart horror/thriller movie that is strongly recommend to you!
筆者喜歡看恐怖驚悚片，但坦白說，很多這類片都不合情理，常常為驚嚇而驚嚇，觀眾很多時要把自己的智商稍為調低一下才可以盡情欣賞，但最近看的這套《訪 · 嚇》(Get Out) 居然是智慧型驚悚片，看完之後慢慢回想當中細節，有嗒落有味的感覺，甚為難得，記得對上一次有這種質量的恐怖片可能要數18年前的《鬼眼》(The Sixth Sense)！
電影說的是美國的種族歧視的老話題，但角度非常新穎，充滿令人意想不到的驚喜！男主角是年青有為的黑人攝影師 Chris，與一個親密的白人女朋友 Rose交往了幾個月，Rose要帶他回家見家長，Chris生怕女友家人會介意自己的膚色，心情患得患失，但去到之後卻受到出乎意料的款待，Rose的父親是外科醫生、母親是催眠治療師，他倆似乎對女兒這另類的選擇頗為滿意。
