2017’s Get Out is one of most refreshing horror movies in years. Nodding to horror’s past while moving the genre forward, aping iconic films but setting trends in its own right and finally getting the Academy to nominate a horror movie for Best Picture – Get Out is truly an instant classic. Starting a huge run for horror releases in 2017, Get Out released in February with moderate fanfare and turned into one of the most profitable movies of all time, making over $250 million dollars worldwide on a budget of $5 million.
To top it all off, this massive hit was the directorial debut of well-known comedian Jordan Peele. Peele was best known for being one half of the sketch comedy duo Key & Peele (big up Children’s Hospital too!), but now is an extremely sought after director and producer. Peele is lending his talents to a Twilight Zone tv revial, another TV show with ‘Lovecraft’ literally in its title and numerous rumored movies.
