“Get Out” (2017)

There’s no way that people could’ve predicted that Jordan Peele would become one of the leading voices in the horror genre, and yet he managed achieve huge critical acclaim as a horror filmmaker with only a single film. That is, quite frankly, unheard of. And yes, this is a great film. Peele clearly shows great understanding of what builds tension in horror and how to have a satisfying payoff and even managed to weave together a genuinely brilliantly written story on top of that. Unfortunately, Peele also makes some rookie mistakes, particularly with his baffling usage of false jump scares, and some moments of predictability. But the rest of the film is so great it can easily be forgiven.
