As an Key & Peele fan, an idea that lingered in my mind is about to come true in the form of Jordan Peele’s directorial debut, Get Out. More specifically, we are finally getting a feature length-horror project from the comedy duo’s half. On their sketch comedy show, Peele and his partner, Keegan-Michael Key, often took their jokes into twisted territory.

When I visit friends and a moment occurs I pull up Key & Peele for some good laughter. While studying the duo’s sketches I’ve discovered some features that reminded me of the former Dave Chappell show. Two shows which I find are brilliantly put together. 

Universal has revealed a trailer for a horror thriller titled Get Out, that is actually written & directed by comedian Jordan Peele - making his debut. This thriller tells a freaky story of a a young African-American in an interracial relationship who discovers what seems to be a white supremacist neighborhood when he visits his girlfriend’s parents. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. Here's the first official trailer for Jordan Peele's Get Out.
