Okay, so it might still be early in the year, but I feel confident in saying that Get Out is the must-see film of 2017. The buzz surrounding the #horror movie, written and directed by #JordanPeele, has not slowed down, thanks to glowing critical reviews and word of mouth.
The film breaks the typical horror structure and evokes meaningful conversations about race due to its subject matter. On a lighter note, the #movie has inspired a social media challenge, appropriately titled the "Get Out Challenge."
If you are active on social media, you may have noticed people posting about the "Get Out Challenge." In the movie, Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) gets out of bed late at night and ventures outside for some air. While outside in the Armitages' backyard he looks out to the treeline and sees the groundskeeper, Walter (Marcus Henderson), running at him full speed. Not exactly sure what he is seeing, Chris seems to brace himself as Walter gets closer, racing right toward him before cutting to the side at the last second.
Many people (and a bird) have posted their versions of the challenge — even NBA star Steph Curry has joined in the fun. Check out some of our favorites below:
There were also some major, yet hilarious, fails!
Be sure to follow Jordan Peele on Twitter and share some of your favorites on social media with the hashtag, #GetOutChallenge — or better yet, create your own. But do so with caution; I bet there was quite a few people who needed to ice some injuries after those failed attempts!
