Peele sees the monster in the film as current society itself. He puts in a subtle clue as a cop asks Chris for ID after Rose has an accident while driving. She sticks up for him confronting the officer as to the reason why. Peeler sees this category of film as the social thriller. When the plot moves to the crux of the situation Chris has already been effected with little prospect to escape. He's been chosen as a chassy for an aging community member and there's not much he can do to prevent it.
Get Out is a study on race relations in America. It's opening and closing scenes serve as bookends on what breeds anxiousness in minorities that would be totally unexpected by the majority in the same situation. Walking along minding your business on a suburban street or expecting the worst when a police car rolls up on a scene where you have done absolutely nothing wrong.
