THERE There’s been a bit of a storm on Twitter this week after a fan suggested that director Jordan Peele might be “the best horror director of all time” following rave reviews for his latest film. nope.
Apparently, the director himself did not think so.
A fan tweeted this asking, “Can you name another horror director who has had 3 great films, let alone 3 in a row?” I cant.
Peele was flattered but refused to be ranked above director John Carpenter. “Sorry, I love your enthusiasm, but I just won’t tolerate any slander against John Carpenter!!!”
Jordan has made great strides in recent years with Get out – which won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay in 2017 – and Usand continued the trend with nope. The science fiction horror film was written, directed and co-produced by Peel under his Monkeypaw Production banner.
