John Carpenter: No disrespect to Jordan Peele Brooks for John Carpenter's grip on horror movie greatness

By Hardik Wasanwal

Jordan Peele has carved out an impressive niche for himself in horror films thanks to the success of Get Out and Us, with momentum building for a similar boom on his new film, Nope.

But fans are ready to anoint him as the greatest (G.O.A.T.) of all time, with one man strongly disagreeing – Jordan Peele himself.

Today, a Yellow fan online blew up a bit too much. "I know it's a hot take, but at what point do we declare Jordan Peele the best horror director of all time?" they wrote. β€œCan you think of another horror director who had 3 great films, let alone 3 in a row? I can't."

Of course, it also sees double digits from John Carpenter's Halloween series as well as horror films from the 1970s, 1980s, and beyond. He is generally regarded as one of the greatest masters of the horror genre.
