This movie is both intense and surprising.

Hunter Wheeler, Staff Reporter

Now that Chris, played by Daniel Kaluuya, and his girlfriend, Rose, played by Allison Williams, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Rose’s parents, Missy and Dean. 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 continues, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined. This low budget movie topped its opening weekend’s top grossing domestic release, earning $30.5 million.
