Jordan Peele redefined the horror genre with his movies.
Narrator, writer, director, producer -- no matter what Peele’s title is, if his name is stamped on the film, you know it’s going to be an experience unlike any other.
His horrors and thrillers are typically considered “social thrillers,” which blends elements of suspense and horror to highlight injustice and oppression within society. There’s also a psychological aspect that triggers in-depth discussions.
Peele even embraces his comedic roots by combining scary element with laugh-out-loud jokes to ensure a roller coaster of emotions for viewers.

The 2017 film served as Peele’s directorial debut. Rose is thrilled to invite her boyfriend, Chris, to meet her parents during a weekend getaway at their upstate home. Initially, Chris assumes that they are just overly friendly while adjusting to their daughter's interracial relationship, but he soon discovers that there's something much more sinister bubbling under the surface. His only option is to “get out,” but he learns that isn’t so easy. The film challenges every expectations with jaw-dropping twists throughout.
After the massive success of the award-winning “Get Out,” Peele delivered yet another chilling nightmare with 2019's "Us," about an American family that takes a trip to a cabin. Soon, their relaxing getaway is interrupted when they are attacked by four strangers who bear their likeness. But who are these doppelgängers staring back at them?
The remake mixes horror with social commentary for a timely and terrifying film. Anthony and his partner move into a loft in gentrified Cabrini where he unintentionally unleashes the terror “living in the walls," also known as the supernatural, hook-handed killer that appears in all the ghost stories.
Peele hosted the re-imagining of the classic series during its two-season run. The anthology told strange episodic stories set in an alternate reality called "The Twilight Zone." Everything is possible here including aliens, mysterious vanishings, and more. Can you feel the fear and paranoia settling in already?
