The racial satire part was good, the rest was overdone. Entertaining thriller.

If you've ever tried to make yourself comfortable on an overnight stay with a family you don't know, you'll understand how the horror kicks off. Just gets weirder as everyone gets to know each other.

You've only got to ask one question- How did the main character get the chair stuffing ( cotton? ) into his ears? The whole film falls apart on this one point ( the answer is that he couldn't possibly have been able to do it - if you watch the movie you'll know why ). Really amateurish to mess up such an obvious and important plot point.
Basically, it's a rip-off of the " Stepford Wives "( 1972 ) with the main theme switched from patriarchal inequality to racial inequality ( with a small twist added to it so it's not a total rip-off ). I thought the main actor Daniel Kaluuya overacted wildly- it was like he was acting in a silent movie from the 1920's his facial movements were so over exaggerated.

One of those you gotta watch a second time and it might be even creepier when you know what's happening! It really well-deserved all the positive reviews!

Movie was outstanding, one of the best in 2017. Simply view the ratings and amount of money it earned. Watch if possible, shows you a different dynamic of African Americans. Most people writing these low reviews and hating comments are white. It's a good movie, watch it.

Predictable. Ordinary. Boring. Tries too hard to make a political statement.

I only just saw this last week on Starz. It was free, thankfully. It turned out to be EXACTLY what I thought it would be. When this first aired it's preview, I thought to myself, "Ooo, just what black America needs. It's not enough we have the 'Dumpster' in the White House spewing his racist venom. No! Why stop there? Let's see more white-on-black racism on film! Whee!!!" And while some people in my building (my Caucasian Social Worker) could find the humor in this pile of doo as she laughingly told me "You should really see it!" Until I questioned whether it was, to put it delicately "What I thought it was about?" And she had to pause to consider this (I'm Black by the way...) So, I just want to say to those of you out there who for whatever reason, somehow, found this humorous, pause to consider.

This indeed is a rare type of movie that needed to be showcased. It's scary to see that even though slavery happened that this could even be conceived of it happening again in an even more cruel way. I'd like to see a movie where the roles are reversed. Good conversation starter!

"You know what I say? I say, one down, a couple hundred thousand to go. I don't mean to get on my high horse, but -- I'm telling you -- I do not like the deer. I'm sick of it. They're taking over, they're like rats, they're destroying the ecosystem. I see a dead deer on the side of the road and I think, 'That's a start'."
