    Tyler,

    Did you notice that Jordan Peel put a quote from the New Testament on the first page of his screenplay?

    Would have loved to have heard you talk about the passage and what you think the intention was.

    One of the few negative reviews of the film I’ve read dings it for falling short of Peele’s stated goals for the film. But I don’t evaluate it that way, and instead just as a horror-comedy, and it’s an astonishingly effective one for a directorial debut. I agree that Caleb Landry Jones’ character doesn’t really fit the conceit though.
