For the latest episode we decided to devote the whole episode to the movie Get Out which is a phenomenon right now and could potential be the best horror movie of 2017 if not years.
Get Out was more than just a horror movie. It was a movie that made self aware of the micro racism that exist in our world today and decided to shed light on what African Americans go through or any people of color for that matter.
The movie also had the ability to make us laugh as well as scare us throughout the whole movie. The script is well written and as a horror movie drives people to have conversations about a topic that makes most people very uncomfortable. You can read more about my initial reaction with my review of Get Out.
Along with my buddy and co-host of our podcast “Bitch, I Ain’t Scared” have a listen to our thoughts on the film and to talk more deeply about the reactions, the emotions, and thoughts of the film and how brilliant this movie is.
Thank you all for reading and listening.

As Black History Month comes to a close for the year, America is given a film that not only gives us some wonderful entertainment and its topic is dealing with the struggle of oppression against African-Americans and people of color. Get Out brings out the stereotypes and racism faced with black people and the complex reactions to interracial dating with a suspenseful twist. It may even make black men think twice about dating a white woman.
Jorden Peele, who is known for his role in the sketch comedy show “Key & Peele”, took a stab at giving us scares but still providing a bit of comedy with smart script. This story is about Chris Washington played by Daniel Kayuula (Sicario, Kick-Ass 2) a black man who has agreed to spend the weekend at his girlfriend Allison’s parents house in the country. Allison just happens to be a white and Chris is a little hesitant to meet them because this is the first time she has brought a black man home to meet them. Once there he notices a lot of obvious awkwardness and underlined racism but that something isn’t right with this family and the people who work for them.
