Opinion

From Library Staff

Jordan Peele combines his signature humor style with a terrifying premise to discuss racial politics in this 2016 smash hit. This movie will get your heart racing and your blood boiling. With thought-provoking social commentary, this film is an excellent new addition to the horror genre.

This modern horror/suspense film comes with more than a few laughs and a healthy dose of timely social commentary. Writer/Director Jordan Peele impresses in this debut that is as mind-bending as it is thought-provoking.

Well written, original, smart, well acted, with an awesome ending!

I wasn't as bother by the racism in the movie as I thought I would be and in fact, I appreciated it because it opened up room for dialog with my friends after we watched it.

It was a horror/comedy movie that didn't feed into the "Black people in horror movies" stereotype as much as some horror movies have in the past as well as present times.

I found it very difficult to understand what the acclaim was for. Poorly done and in-your-face obvious racial commentary.

A comic horror film with truth about racism.

Thank God Armond White Ruined their "100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes score" honestly, this movie was hyped up on pure media and Activists. Now, let's see...is it scary? No. Is it a thriller? Kinda. Is it overrated? To the maximum! Is the movie itself beautiful? Yes, the visuals in this movie was fantastic. It wasn't cheap but very fancy and beautiful with the setting and visuals. Now, again why is this in the horror section? I have no idea.

Great movie..... the undertones of race are subtle and well-done. It's scary, but not gory which makes it a great watch! I would recommend!

This movie is one of the best original psychological social thriller I've seen in a long time.

The beginning was promising, but deteriorated rapidly when the couple got to the dinner table. The brother appeared to be very drunk and evil and parents didn't seem to mind. Well I did -off it went.

Weird & crazy movie. Lots of 'f***' which does nothing at all for an already stupid movie. This was a waste of time.

"You know what I say? I say, one down, a couple hundred thousand to go. I don't mean to get on my high horse, but -- I'm telling you -- I do not like the deer. I'm sick of it. They're taking over, they're like rats, they're destroying the ecosystem. I see a dead deer on the side of the road and I think, 'That's a start'."
