“Get Out”

‚ÄčI do not watch thrillers.  When I was 5 my mom dropped my sister, who was 6, and me off at the movie theatre.  It was 1957.  I watched “I Married A Monster From Outer Space.”  My night terrors were so severe that my mom had me visiting a psychotherapist for a year.  Nevertheless, I still avoid thrillers.  But, “Get Out” is more than a thriller.  The underlining message reveals the reality of our present day circumstances and this is what is terrifying.  Liel Leibovitzis, a senior writer for Tablet Magazine, offers a raw, bloodcurdling taste of reality as he describes “Get Out” and the secrets lurking behind many welcoming smiles.  This article is worth reading.
