Get Out Almost Ended On A Realistically Depressing Note
Oscar-winning horror hit Get Out ends with our hero Chris battling his girlfriend Rose and her family to escape their literal cottage industry of racist brain transplants. They've been luring black people in to auction off their bodies to their rich friends. As Chris pins Rose down, the flashing red and blue lights of a police car appear.
Universal Pictures"This will work out in my favor as long as the police don't do the barest of forensics investigations."
While we expect that things are about to go full Night Of The Living Dead, the driver turns out not to be the bigoted cop we saw earlier, but rather Chris' TSA buddy Rod!
Universal Pictures"The TSA budget is through the roof."
But it almost ended with ...
That fake-out with the squad car? It nearly wasn't a fake-out. The original ending found Chris being arrested.
Universal Pictures"Please do the barest of forensics investigations!"
Then, in the film's final moments, Rod would visit Chris, who's now in jail. But he's at peace with it all because he put an end to the evil body-snatching schemes, which apparently left behind no evidence whatsoever.
Universal Pictures"Did they seriously not even see the body missing the top half of its head?"
