Nothing quite tops the experience of seeing a movie like Get Out for the first time. Jordan Peele's directorial debut is, among other accomplishments, a true feat of well-paced screenwriting. As a result, your heart really starts to race in the film's final act. At Wednesday night's African-American Film Critics Association Awards, Peele revealed some of his favorite audience reactions.
"My favorite reaction was, in one of the screenings Chance the Rapper was there, he was there with some of his friends," Peele said. "You know, there's so much tension in the movie, so much stress to put the audience through. By the time [Daniel Kaluuya] starts getting out, it's cathartic. When he gores Bradley Whitford with those antlers, Chance and his friends just stood up, just 'Oh!' They stood for the rest of the film."
Of course, Chance isn't alone in his passionate Get Out reaction. The film—already regarded as the most profitable movie of 2017—stood alongside Andy Muschietti's It adaptation to help last year go down as the biggest year ever for horror movies.
Asked about the possibility of a Get Out sequel at the Academy's Nominees Night event earlier this week, Peele revealed he would "seriously consider" it. "I love that universe and I feel like there is more story to tell," he told the Hollywood Reporter. "I don't know what it is now, but there are some loose ends, if you know the movie."
