The psychological thriller has a 99% rating on movie review site Rotten Tomatoes and follows a black man going to visit his white girlfriend's parents for the first time in upstate New York.

Benjamin Lee from The Guardian has previously described how: "Get Out is designed to lift the facade of post-racial America and showcase the ugliness that lies beneath. What's quite astounding is not only how sharply he manages this but that he does so while also crafting a terrifying horror film."

And now there's some good news for fans, in an interview with Deadline, after director Jordan Peele discussed the possibility a sequel to the film.

He said: "I haven't decided anything yet and I am allowing the creative part to bubble up, and not force it. I know if a follow-up is meant to happen, it will. I'm open to figuring out what it is. But I also don't want to let down the original and its fans. I simply would not do something like that for the cash."

It comes after the announcement of another horror sequel earlier this month, a follow up to The Strangers:

Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family's every limit as they struggle to survive."
