Jordan Peele Responds To A Tweet Claiming He's A Better Horror Director Than John Carpenter ...

Nope, a film by Jordan Peele, is now playing in theaters, and the internationally well-known comedian and director has yet to receive an award. However, the multi-talented celebrity refuses to refer to him as the greatest horror director ever, especially when compared to John Carpenter.

Peele is getting a solid reputation on the horror platform, with Get Out and Us being the most well-known of the bunch. He's even dabbled in horror television with the Paramount Plus version of The Twilight Zone, which is currently receiving rave reviews.

When a fan wrote on Twitter to ask, "Where do we go from here to declare Jordan Peele the best horror director of all time?" Regardless, the Nope director felt it was appropriate to call him the greatest director of all time.

Peele then pleading with Ellis to put the phone down because he didn't agree with the sentiment. He then went on to state that he would not "tolerate any John Carpenter slander." With The Thing, Carpenter is well-known in the horror genre. Also, he's the man behind one of the most beloved horror franchises in history, Halloween.

Peele stated that he's not the greatest horror filmmaker, but his comments from him and Ellis sparked a debate on Twitter about some of the best movies in the genre, as well as talk about how some of the greatest films out there didn't always receive the highest critical rating. While it might be true that Carpenter's picks did not always get the best rating, Peele's have been quite successful so far, adding to his popularity.

Nope, it is now available in cinemas.
