Horror films have other features: cameras are tilted to create disorientation and are sometimes handheld; wide-angle establishing shots show the entire location; mostly non-diegetic ambient sounds are used. Peele does not deprive Get Out of a satirical note which he has used many times before. And as for the conventions, he turns them upside down. For example, the director will leave the viewer in silence in the moments of increased danger, but the music will press on our ears when nothing happens. So, bravo, we are constantly in tension.
Besides, one of the main conventions of horror are secluded locations that allow something known or unknown to harm the main characters. Peele has an amazing combination of comic and horror conventions — he puts a large number of people into space around Chris, but this does not make the character feel safe. All those around are in fact the "unknown" that wants to harm him. In Norway, where the author has studied filmmaking, Get Out is shown in classes as an example of high-quality horror.
Krasinski's film is primarily interesting because of its sound effects, as this is even reflected in its title. During preparation, the director studied how they affect viewers in There Will Be Blood (2007)
and No Country for Old Men (2007).
Unlike a typical horror movie in which unlucky heroes scream, Krasinski's film has monsters that communicate using echolocation and a family that hides from them and therefore uses not words but gestures. This approach to filmmaking is revolutionary for Hollywood.
