Holy, that feeling when you know a master director is going to terrify the ever-loving crap out of you and you can’t wait for it to happen. Jordan Peele is that director, and in the space of one fantastic film — Get Out — he proved he knows exactly how to twist our insides so that it feels like they’re about to evacuate our own bodies. Here he goes again …
I don’t know if these are ghosts a family is somehow seeing of its former selves, or if they don’t know they’re dead, or if there are just some total psychos after them for a last-minute reveal perceived “crime” (which seems like the twisty kind of thing Peele would come up with), but whatever is happening, I’m scared. And of course, I can’t wait to see it.
Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Anna Diop, and billed as a psychological horror involving a “group of doppelgängers” (we’re guaranteed it’s not that simple), Peele’s second directorial outing will debut at this year’s SXSW. Hopefully, we’ll see it in theaters soon after.
Yeah, I’m scared.
