wow, okay. 

Wild stuff going on, for sure.  Especially in that the kids (and, uh, their doppelgangers) are full-blown a part of the craziness.

Off the top of my head, you "never" see a black family in an 'official' horror film (as opposed to, you know, various other films where horrible ish happens to black folks)..

I still haven't seen Get Out yet.  I guess I'll get around to it, somehow.

"I Got Five On It" remixed to creepy effect?  Neat.

You've got to see it, Hype!  :)

When you do decide to see it, pay attention to all the little details of what you may already know about American history.

I'm co-signing Battle here. Get Out was a great film, much better than it's weird trailer or I thought it would be going into it. The Us trailer reminds me too much of the Get Out trailer, though I hope I really am pleasantly surprised by this one. It's good to see Lupita in a starring/co-starring role, and as you pointed out you never see a black family as the main family in a horror film.

I'm looking forward to the fitty-leven think pieces on this movie based upon the trailer.
Who knows if any of us will be right?

But putting my guess into the hat: Us versus them. (The them are us. lol. I can't decide if US is who we are as a people/society/culture or the mask that we wear to walk around "safely" in white society


Listen to my entertaining radio show, "The Takeover: Top 20 Countdown" at www.top20takeover.VVCRadio.com.

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!
