With the beloved horror maestro about to give us his third feature, I thought now would be a good time to dig in to see what his favorite films are.

While the internet had very conflicting listings and videos, Far Out Magazine does all the calculations I can’t to reduce it to these nine films.

Check Out Jordan Peele’s Favorite Horror Movies

  • Dead Again (1991)
  • The Shining (1980)
  • The Babadook (2014)
