The best horror movies are about something larger than scary creatures or murders, and though it might be too early to declare Jordan Peele’s Get Out one of the best horror movies, it’s definitely getting a lot of good buzz, and it’s definitely about something larger than a community of creepy white people. And Peele is already envisioning a series of spiritual sequels to Get Out that will explore more “social demons.”
Speaking with Business Insider, Peele explained that “the best and scariest monsters in the world are human beings” and the sort of twisted things we can do when we’re together. He says he’s been working on “premises” about “these innately human monsters that are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact,” and each of his movies going forward is going be about a different one of those uniquely human horrors. Peele has thought of four of these movies that he’s going “unveil in the next decade,” but that’s the only information he offered at this point.
Of course, if Peele is really smart, he’ll find a way to tie these movies together into a cohesive cinematic universe. After all, that’s the best way to get movies made these days.
