Now, this is something I can really get down with.
The internet is full of trends. And for some reason, the internet is also full of challenges as well. The Mannequin Challenge; the ALS Ice Water Challenge. It’s about time we get something based on a horror movie going.
If you’ve seen Get Out, you probably remember the scene in which Walter runs full force towards Chris before abruptly turning and avoiding him. It’s one of the strangest and most shockingly funny scenes in the entire film, which squeezed out more than a few laughs in the theater that I saw it in.
So what’s the Get Out Challenge, then? It’s simple. All you have to do is run as fast as humanly possible towards whoever is filming, and turn right before you hit them. As you can guess, the results are pretty hilarious. Though it’s not raising awareness for any debilitating diseases, it’s funny nonetheless, and instead raises awareness for something all readers of iHorror know and love: a damn good horror movie.
Watch the challenge below. Do you dare attempt the Get Out Challenge!?
Get Out, directed by Jordan Peele:
Now that Chris and his girlfriend, Rose, have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with 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 progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.
