Director Jordan Peele makes short work of these Reddit fan theories surrounding his horror film “Get Out.”
Reddit is teaming with fan theories about pretty much any and every movie ever made but rarely do the directors of these films take the time to break them down. However, Jordan Peele did just that in this video for Vanity Fair. From the plausible to the straight up absurd, the director confirms or denies several fan theories about his critically acclaimed horror film Get Out that have been making their rounds on Reddit.
Get Out is one of those films that just begs to be picked apart by film theorists. It’s a meaty story that uses plenty of metaphors, motifs, and symbolism to let the audience know that there is so much more than meets the eye. Is this film really a sequel to Being John Malkovich? Is there really a reason why Rose eats her milk and Fruit Loops separately? Well, Peele gives us the unique opportunity to know for sure.
What are some other intriguing Get Out fan theories that Peele didn’t talk about in the video? Let us know down in the comments.
