Jordan Peele Got A Cry Of Not Perfect From The Creator Of Midnight Mass, And It’s Making Me A Little Nervous


There are a number of parallels that can be seen when comparing Jordan Peele Nope and Steven Spielberg Jaws, and a lot of that includes the fact that both films change the way audiences look at the world around them. The beloved summer 1975 blockbuster forever changed the way we view the ocean, and Peele’s 2022 success is making people a little more wary of strange cloud formations. Example: when Midnight Mass creator Mike Flanagan spotted a single puff of steam in the sky this morning, he immediately thought of the get out/We filmmaker and tagged him on social media.

You can check out the pair of photos Flanagan posted on Twitter below, and you’ll immediately understand why his brain immediately clicked on Jordan Peele’s latest film:

In Nope, brother and sister OJ and Emerald Haywood (Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer) find their family ranch being terrorized by an alien presence, and this alien has a rather clever method of camouflage: he creates a tiny little cloud in the sky and sits in the air. inside until it’s ready for its next meal (whether it’s a horse or a human). He looks quite harmless…until all the clouds around him move away and he stays in exactly the same place. When you see that, it’s scary as hell.

Mike Flanagan’s photos are most definitely reminiscent of what’s featured in Jordan Peele’s horror flick. While I’m sure there is some natural phenomenon that would explain why a tiny cloud would sit alone in the sky like this, new memories of Nope instantly designated as disturbing and frightening, and I hope the Doctor Sleep the writer/director took the necessary precautions after taking his photos.

After its successful big screen run this summer (where it grossed $169.1 million worldwide), Nope is now making its way into the home video market. It is currently available for digital rental at outlets including Amazon Prime Video (opens in a new tab)Vudoo (opens in a new tab)and Google Play (opens in a new tab). For all you physical media collectors out there, 4K, Blu-ray and DVD copies of the film will be hitting stores just in time for Halloween on October 25th.

Nope is one of Jordan Peele’s finest films to date, and it’s possible the filmmaker isn’t quite done with the world, as he was asked about the idea of ​​an extended cut and has also teased the idea of ​​a sequel involving a cut character. We’ll have to wait and see what the future holds, and hopefully it won’t be long before Peele has a new entry to feature in our upcoming horror movies guide.

Mike Flanagan’s latest work, the next Netflix series The Midnight Clubwill be available to stream starting October 7.
