Just as we were promised, the alternate ending of the blockbuster film, Get Out, has surfaced as part of the film's DVD release and viewers see a different kind of fate for lead character Chris after he escapes the twisted doings of his girlfriend Rose's family.
In the newly-released clip, Chris ends up strangling Rose to death on the street after escaping her family and their torturous acts. However, unlike the theatrical version, he's bombarded by local police, who arrest him, toss him in jail and make the film feel far more realistic than we'd ideally like for our viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, Chris' best friend Rod's appearance arrives when he visits Chris in jail for some one-on-one phone call time.
Write and director Jordan Peele spoke about the alternate ending during the time of the horror film's release during an appearance on BuzzFeed's "Another Round." "In the beginning, when I was first making this movie the idea was, 'Okay, we're in this post-racial world, apparently.' That was the whole idea," he explained, adding that he started writing the film during the beginning of the Obama Administration.
"People were saying, like, 'We've got Obama so racism is over, let’s not talk about it.' It's a wrap. That’s what the movie was meant to address. These are all clues, if you don't already know, that racism isn’t over," he said. "It was very clear that the ending needed to transform into something that gives us a hero, that gives us an escape, gives us a positive feeling when we leave this movie. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the audience go crazy when Rod shows up."
This alternate ending will be included on the at-home edition of Get Out, which hits stores May 23.
