10 horror movies Jordan Peele made cast watch before filming US

It was just yesterday that we shared with you guys a killer Christmas gift in the form of the first trailer for GET OUT writer-director Jordan Peele's upcoming horror-thriller US starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and Madison Curry. If you missed the trailer yesterday because you were opening presents and/or stuffing your face, then you can always give it a look-see below. It's badass.

For this new film, Peele will be teaming up with the above-mention Oscar-nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o, and in a recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, Peele revealed the ten films he asked her to watch "so they would have a 'shared language' when filming." 

Those 10 horror movies were:

Dead Again

The Shining

The Babadook

It Follows

A Tale of Two Sisters

The Birds

Funny Games


Let the Right One In

The Sixth Sense 

That's a pretty good list of modern horror movies, am I right? Plus Peele threw in a few classics such as THE BIRDS and THE SHINING. Plus a few interesting picks such as DEAD AGAIN. I guess I need to seek that film out ASAP. What do you think of Peele's list? Let us know below! Now that US has been filmed and assembled, it's ready for a test screening, and Slash Film got their hands on the synopsis that is accompanying invitations to that test screening. While still keeping the story shrouded in secrecy, this synopsis does reveal a little more detail.

A mother and a father take their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends. But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited.

Written and directed by Peele, the film stars Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, and Madison Curry. Peele produced US through his company Monkeypaw Productions, along with Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, and Ian Cooper. Daniel Lupi served as executive producer. US is supposed to reach theatres in just three months, on March 15, 2019. Are you looking forward to checking out US this March? Let us know below!
