I appreciate how with each film, Jordan Peele has shown his deep appreciation of horror, by tackling a different subgenre. This time, he shows his love of Spielberg by combing Jaws and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. It is exactly the kind of film this generation needs, but maybe not the one it wants. Regardless, it is definitely a theater experience, and a welcome addition to not only his filmography, but horror as well.
I use this film as my timeline reference point for any other old school horror film.
That is because this movie literally changed cinema singlehandedly. You can’t watch movies that were made after it and not see it’s influence.
In addition, it still stands up after all these years.
An absolute classic.
