Many people became fans of Jordan Peele for his comedic work in the Comedy Central Show, Key & Peele which featured fellow comedian, Keegan-Michael Key.
But now, many know him for a much different reason- horror films.
Fresh off his box office hit, Get Out, the director/writer wants to make a series of horror films that tackle issues of social justice.
The premise of Get Out could certainly be deemed ‘touchy’ subject matter for some. It focuses on a young black man (Daniel Kaluuya) who winds up in a horrifying situation when he goes for a first-time visit with his white girlfriend’s (Allison Williams) family.
But it’s not simply just a horror film, it touches upon the very pertinent topics of race, discrimination and stereotypes in a brilliant way. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check it out.
Luckily for us, it seems that Peele’s journey as a director/writer is far from over.
In a recent interview with the Business Insider, Peele said, “I have four other social thrillers that I want to unveil in the next decade. The best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings and what we are capable of especially when we get together.”
Peele’s examination of race, injustice and xenophobia in his directorial debut was profound and I for one cannot wait to see what he shows us next!
