A Lot Of Hilarious Improv Went Into The Horror Of Get Out – SlashFilm


Speaking with /Film ahead of the film’s release, Daniel Kaluuya talked about the shared background in improvisation between Allison Williams, Jordan Peele and himself. “(Jordan) trusts that instincts are very important, and he doesn’t try and micromanage you. Kinda lets you go and trusts you,” Kaluuya said. “I think a majority of the film was improvised, a lot of stuff made up in a day, if it wasn’t working, like you get in the moment, it doesn’t feel right, we have to be loose, and flexible enough to allow for whatever ideas need to happen.” Kaluuya added:

“I think everyone knew where their character arcs was going, so people were kind of managers of their characters and mapping that. And Jordan allowed us, gave us the license to do that. So a lot of it was improv, a lot of it was right and he wanted it to feel natural and off cast, which is like life, you know?”

Though some audiences may consider improvisation more of a comedy thing, horror has a long history of improvisation — after all, comedy and horror are closely intertwined. From the most famous line in “Jaws,” to the reactions in the chestburster scene in “Alien,” there is a long history of unscripted moments making horror movies better.

After playing with different subgenres, Jordan Peele is back with a new film this year, to be released on Christmas. Will it once again combine horror and comedy? More importantly, what role will improvisation play in the new film? Stay tuned.
