Why Get Out Fans Will Like It: The Twilight Zone takes everyday situations and adds a paranormal or horror element to them. Something as standard as a plane ride becomes terrifying when mixed with a creepy Twilight Zone element. Essentially, Get Out does the same thing.

Why Get Out Fans Will Like It: The two versions of The Stepford Wives diverge in many ways, but they both keep the basic premise of the original book, and that’s what connects them with Get Out. The whole idea of stealing someone’s body or likeness to turn them into domestic slaves runs through all of these films.

The basic premise (spoiler alert) is that aliens begin taking over human bodies, turning them into emotionless pod people.

Why Get Out Fans Will Like It: Get Out and Invasion of the Body Snatchers both deal with the idea of body’s being invaded. In Invasion of the Body Snatchers it is by aliens, but in Get Out, it’s by older white people.
