What about Get Out made hor­ror re­spectable for crit­ics and the mo­tion pic­ture acad­emy?

Newsweek - - Culture -

Get Out re­minded peo­ple that there can be real artistry to hor­ror movies, and they are a great ve­hi­cle to deliver a pos­i­tive so­cial mes­sage. This has been true since Franken­stein; John Car­pen­ter did it in the 1970s bet­ter than any­one. And the acad­emy cer­tainly looks at movies [in terms of] “Are they try­ing to give a mes­sage to make the world a bet­ter place?”—like Get Out did with racism.
