A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Men demonstrate virility by being violent. "If you get robbed, it's because you're weak," so "be a real man, not a big f-g."
Positive Role Models
Paul is a humorless whiner, a weak, ineffectual observer who threatens to act but doesn't when his house is stolen. While there's seemingly nothing to do but wait for the law to take its course, he nevertheless complains and broods uselessly.
Violence & Scariness
Filled with extreme gratuitous violence. A man tries to rape a woman, but she grabs his testicles and he recoils in pain as she escapes. An unarmed Black man is repeatedly beaten by drunken White thugs outside a club; the girl with him is manhandled. Bar fights. Drunks shoot wild pigs. Wearing pig masks, several men break into a home and beat, terrorize, torture, commit murder. Thugs jam a man and woman into large plastic bags, suck the air out of the bags. Thugs beat a man and woman who have fallen under plastic tarps bloody, then remove the woman and take her clothes off. Last 20 minutes constitute one long nightmare of excessively gruesome violence. A man hiding from violent intruders slashes one assailant in the leg and then beats him to death.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Get In (Furie) is an exceedingly violent French horror film with English subtitles posing as social commentary, reportedly based on a true story. A middle-class family returns from a two-month vacation to their large gated home and finds that the nanny and her husband have changed the locks and are refusing to move. Neither the police nor the court system help, resulting in a bloody and lethal outcome, with graphically depicted property damage, arson, three-on-one beatings, torture, and murders. Full-frontal and topless female nudity is seen, a couple has sex, oral sex is attempted, and a rape is averted. Drug and alcohol use are extensive. Language includes "f--k," "s--t," "ass," "d--k," "piss," "screw," "balls," "crap," "bitch," and "f-g." The last 20 minutes of the film constitute one long nightmare of excessively gruesome violence.

Is It Any Good?
This is a uniquely hateful and offensive piece of violent exploitation cinema that has no redeeming value. Using a similar title to Jordan Peel's treatise on racism, Get Out, seems cynical, insulting, and exploitive. The based-on-a-true-story claim is vague, which is a good thing, because nothing about Get In is either believable or good. If the house thieves are "renters," then how much are they paying and when is the lease up? Why does the law prevent Paul from getting his clothes and his pet bird? Paul loses his temper every time he speaks to a bureaucrat who might otherwise be inclined to help. And when idiots suggest to him that he has chosen to be a victim, he just fumes like a 4-year-old who has been called a bad name.
The people who eventually do take action are low-life drunken thugs who view violence and entertainment interchangeably, who respect nothing but a bat to their heads, and who espouse the benefits of toxic masculinity and the made-up notion of willing victimhood. If Mickey really were the way men should be, why would he need to drink and get high all day, rape women, and beat up defenseless men? Yet, only at the story's end, after Paul is forced to become as brutal as Mickey, even if only in self-defense, does his wife make love to him. This cynical and irresponsible movie endorses a dangerous sense of entitlement: that people who are willing to violently take what they think they deserve have the right to do so.
