A lot of great movies came out in 2017, and ‘Get Out’ is, undoubtedly, one of them. The story of a black man, visiting the family of his white girlfriend didn’t seem too complicated as a premise. But as the story moved forward, the film began to point out social, especially racial, issues. Add to that the sense of an impending doom and uneasy feelings about the things that begin to happen. The film maintained the tension towards the protagonist’s fate until the very end. It is only when the credits start to roll, that you begin to settle down. And thank the gods that it wasn’t a Marvel’s movie because then it’d mean that there’s still a twist between the credits!
But what made this horror flick different was the touch of humor in it. I have never seen a movie that scared me and tickled my funny-bone, at the same time. It is one of the films that leave an effect that lingers long after the movie has ended. If you are looking for the films that’ll turn you jittery, Alfred Hitchcock’s filmography is the obvious list to browse through. And throw in some Stephen King in the mix. We have tried to come up with a list of films similar to Get Out that are our recommendations. If you are interested, you might be able to stream some of these movies like Get Out on Netflix or Amazon Prime or even Hulu.
14. Gerald’s Game (2017)
You can’t spell horror, and unsettling stories, without Stephen King. This film, based on the book of the same name, is the story of a woman whose husband dies by her bedside, while she is tied to the bed. No one knows of their whereabouts, and there is no hope of rescue. And then she starts hearing noises and seeing things. Featuring a stellar performance from Carla Gugino, it is one of 2017’s best in horror genre.
