Jordan Peele shuts down fan
"I know this may be a controversial opinion, but at what point do we declare Jordan Peele the greatest horror director of all time?" comic book creator Adam Ellis wrote on Twitter on Wednesday morning. "Can you think of another horror director who has had 3 great movies, let alone 3 consecutive good horror movies? I can't."
Although flattered, Peele objected to being ranked ahead of one of his favorite veteran filmmakers John Carpenter, behind "Halloween," "Christine”, and "The Thing."
"Sir, please put the phone down, I'm begging you," Peele tweeted in response. "I apologize. I love your enthusiasm, but I simply will not tolerate any slander against John Carpenter!"
To back up his argument, Ellis tweeted screenshots of the Rotten Tomatoes list rankings for Peele's "Get Out" (98%), "Us" (93%), and "Nope" (89%). Other Twitter users quickly disputed the original tweet, offering examples of filmmakers with far more credit than Peele and just as many critics, including Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, Wes Craven, David Cronenberg, Brian De Palma, and several others.
