Jordan Peele's 'Get Out' makes its way into Rotten Tomatoes' 100 club


Share This Article:

For the past 18 years, Rotten Tomatoes' 'Tomatometer' has been aggregating the reviews of films and television series alike.

In all that time, through all of those releases, less than 700 films have managed to sustain a 100% 'certified fresh' rating.

The latest provisional inductee to the elusive 100 club is Get Out - the directorial debut feature from American actor, comedian, and screenwriter Jordan Peele.

A distinct genre shift for Peele, the mystery-horror film's currently unblemished rating on the popular site, of course, means that it is yet to receive a single negative review. At the time of writing, the film holds an average score of 8.3 out of 10, drawn from 123 reviews counted so far. 

The film - which premiered at Sundance last month - stars Daniel Kaluuya (Sicario), as young African-American photographer Chris Washington, alongside Alison Williams (Girls) as Rose Armitage, his white girlfriend. 

Its trailer depicts the couple's journey and subsequent visit to Rose's wealthy parents' seemingly homely estate, and the inherent reservations that Chris has towards it. As it turns out, they appear to be very well-placed, as things gradually take a turn for the peculiar, and it becomes increasingly clear that the Armitages and their friends may not quite be the all-welcoming, permissive people they initially present themselves to be.  

Boasting a critical consensus that reads "Funny, scary, and thought-provoking, Get Out seamlessly weaves its trenchant social critiques into a brilliantly effective and entertaining horror/comedy thrill ride", it seems highly likely that the positive recognition will continue to flood in, and thus keep its three-figure percentage perfectly intact.

Get Out is set for a UK theatrical release on 17th March 2017.
