Jordan Peele is quickly making a case for himself as one of the new masters of horror, thanks to his breakout directorial debut ‘Get Out,’ his revival of the classic anthology series ‘The Twilight Zone,’ and his upcoming sophomore film ‘Us,’ which opens on March 22. But how did he develop such an astute appreciation of the genre? RT got a rare opportunity to speak with Peele about the history of horror from his perspective, focusing on the films and TV series that both shaped his unique sensibilities helped define the genre for future storytellers. Check out the video to hear his thoughts on classics, from a pair of iconic Hitchcock films to supernatural slashers of the 1980s and a pair of game-changers released in 1999.
