A young African-American visits his white girlfriend's parents for the weekend, where his simmering uneasiness about their reception of him eventually reaches a boiling point.

"Get Out" holds a fresh rating of 98 percent and an audience score of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). The film scored five Oscar nominations in 2018, winning Best Original Screenplay. The critically acclaimed awards darling won over audiences by highlighting the scary reality of facing white supremacy while being Black in America.

Stephanie Zacharek wrote for Time:

Peele succeeds where sometimes even more experienced filmmakers fail: He's made an agile entertainment whose social and cultural observations are woven so tightly into the fabric that you're laughing even as you're thinking, and vice-versa.

Below is the synopsis of "A Quiet Place," per IMDb.

A family is forced to live in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.

"A Quiet Place" holds a fresh rating of 95 percent and audience score of 83 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). Variety's Rebecca Rubin listed all the reasons why "A Quiet Place" was a winner in 2018.

Horror movies usually have a simple premise, but it’s a film with a deeper message that can truly grab an audience. That was the case for racial satire “Get Out,” and to a lesser degree, the same could be said for “A Quiet Place.” At its core, Krasinski told Variety the movie is a metaphor for “parenthood, the idea of protecting your kids, and how far would you go to protect them.” However, critics have also pointed to the apocalyptic monster movie’s parallels of political unrest in America. “The deeper a film can go in terms of messages, the stronger it will be in terms of targeting more of a demographic,” Bock said.
