Synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes:
Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
OMG! That was some f*cked up sh*t! It was like Stepford Wives, only instead of women, it was black people. This was a great movie! I was totally into it. The acting was great, and I really cared about Chris as a character. He had depth, he wasn’t just your average victim. Don’t read that to mean that there was a lot of drama, because there wasn’t. The story seemed to have just the right amount of drama/suspense/scare ratio. I think I’m going to make my husband watch it. I really wouldn’t mind seeing it again. I saw the alternate ending as well, and I really think it should have been left as the final ending. It was tough, but it would have spoken volumes. But, it is what it is, and I understand Peele’s decision to go another way with it. However, if you have the chance to watch the alternate or “first” ending, make sure you do. It’s brutal, but really striking. Great movie, really creeped me out.
