Chris and the audience finally get an explanation of what sort of evil is going on here after he is shown an informative video on the history of the procedure. The video shows the grandfather of the Armitage family explaining how he has found a way to put an older mind into a younger body.
The video is eerie in just how normal Mr. Armitage talks about the procedure. But when he looks to the skies and says, “Behold, the coagula,” it adds an even creepier cult feel to the whole thing that makes it all the more unsettling.
9 “I Want Your Eye, Man.”
Following the informative video, Chris is introduced to the man who will be taking over his body, the blind Jim Hudson. Chris previously met Jim at the party and the two bonded over their love of photography, a hobby Jim lost when he lost his sight.
Jim explains to Chris that he is not like the others in this community. He does not care about race whatsoever, but he is actually just envious of Chris’ talented eye for photography and wants it for himself.
8 “Black Is In Fashion.”
One of the creepiest scenes in the movie is when Chris attends the garden party at the Armitage’s house where he is the unwilling center of attention. All the guests make small talk with Chris, wasting little time bringing up his race in ways that they seem to think are progressive and respectful.
One particular guest starts talking to Chris about how he imagines it is beneficial to be a Black man in the current era and how it is somehow fashionable. It is one of the film’s cringiest moments as Chris is forced to listen to such offensive ignorance with a smile on his face.
7 “Get Out!”
One of the most unforgettable moments in the movie is when Chris meets a fellow Black man at the garden party, though the interaction is not what he was hoping for. Andre (Lakeith Stanfield) was seen in the opening scene of the movie getting captured but now appears to have a totally different personality.
When Chris sneaks a picture of Andre, something triggers in the young man and he begins shouting “Get out!” at Chris. What seems like an attack is later revealed to be a warning.
6 “Sex Slave!”
One great element that Jordan Peele included in the movie was the character of Rod, Chris’ best friend. Rod acts as the much-needed comic relief throughout the movie, diffusing a lot of the tension with some big laughs.
Rod is much more suspicious of this meet-the-parents scenario than Chris is and he is even warier when Chris tells him about Andre. The first theory that pops into Rod’s head is “sex slave!”
5 “I Mean, I Told You Not To Go In That House.”
Peele manages to subvert expectations and comment on the horror genre without ever falling into parody. During the final sequence when Rod comes to save the day, he says the same thing countless horror fans had been screaming at countless horror movie characters over the years.
Chris is beaten and horrified by his experience and all his friend can say is “I mean, I told you not to go in that house.” Indeed, Rod was the voice of reason the whole time.
4 “Now, You’re In The Sunken Place.”
One of the most horrific concepts introduced in this movie is the idea of the sunken place. When Missy Armitage offers to hypnotize Chris to cure him of his smoking habit, she ends up putting him in a deep trance in which he cannot move, then tells him to sink.
The visual image of the so-called “sunken place” is stunning and terrifying all at once. It makes the audience feel the sensation of being a passenger in one’s own body.
3 “You Know I Can’t Give You The Keys, Right, Babe?”
Chris finally decides this visit has gone on long enough and he needs to make a quick exit. He gets Rose to pack her bags and then attempt to leave the house. But when they come downstairs, the rest of the family is much more sinister, and they close in around Chris.
He tries to back them off as Rose desperately searches for the car keys. Then in a devastating switch, Rose drops the act and says, “You know I can’t give you the keys, right babe?” finally revealing the trap.
2 “I’m TS-Motherf*****-A. We Handle S***.”
After Chris is put through so much in the movie, Peele was wise enough to leave fans with a triumphant ending. As Chris stands over the bloodied Rose and several other dead bodies, he suddenly sees flashing lights and audiences immediately suspect the worst outcome.
Thankfully, it is revealed to be Rod coming to rescue Chris in his TSA car. When Chris asks his friend how he found him, Rod replies “I’m TS-motherf*****-A. We handle s***.”
1 “By The Way, I Would Have Voted For Obama For A Third Term, If I Could.”
One of the most fascinating aspects of the movie was highlighting the racism that comes from those who see themselves as progressives. The best example of this is with Rose’s father who bends over backward to make it seem like he is really an ally to Black people despite doing the bare minimum.
