I had a great chat about it with my 20-something black male coworker. He was like - all that stuff has happened to me. And that was the real horror. My team had are ally good discussion about it on our break.

Excellent flick from the skewed titles and 'Run Rabbbit' it took off like an Olympic sprinter and never let up. Weak point? (but minor enough). The comedic sidekick.

All that stuff could not have happened to your coworker. Loved the movie. I thought it was great. I have recommended it to all of my friends and family.

Ok no brain implants. But the scenes at the party? Accurate.

Im a black male. I dated a white woman a couple of years ago. There was a few scenes in there I could totally relate to. I wonder if interracial homosexual relationships happen like that as well. Black man dating a white man type of situations. That cop scene when they hit the dear really hit close to home for me.

The same stuff, maybe worse happens to gay men. This is a super interesting related article.

The other - black and gay - shares his own experiences and my friends have echoed the same.

Saw it today. It got amazing scores on Rotten Tomatoes, deserved all the praise.It just came to my theater, it's brand new in these parts so I won't say much about it.
And to my fellow serious movie buffs,if you haven't seen it, Go.
Just, Go.

No. Don't go see it. It's not a good movie. It's 90% buildup, which ultimately makes no logical sense (seriously - why were the grandparents servants and why were they so bad at it if this is something they do often) and 10% (as in running time - the legit horror part is 10% of the movie). Not sure how it got 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

I get that most of the uncomfortable party probably has happened to black people, but that's not a reason for a movie, or if it is then why tack on a silly horror premise to crap all over people's real experiences?

The best friend and his interactions were the best part of the movie.

Spoiler
That cop scene when they hit the dear really hit close to home for me. - RE: she wasn't sticking up for him, she didn't want the cop to know he was traveling with her. Again, craps all over someone's real experiences
