Though critics and moviegoers responded to it nearly immediately, the establishment took a bit longer to get on board and seemed confused, as when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association nominated it for a Golden Globe (cool) but placed it in the Best Comedy or Musical category (wha?).

The comedic actor turned serious director with 2017's acclaimed Get Out, the psychological horror-thriller about being black in America that has garnered Golden Globe and Oscar nominations. What the first-time director was able to accomplish, and on such a minuscule budget, is remarkable.

For those who have already seen Get Out, this is the kind of film that really benefits from a second viewing. The film is also rated 99 percent on Rotten Tomatoes tabulated from 300 reviews.
