Jordan Peele’s ‘Us': All the Horror References We Found So Far (Photos)
With the release of “Us,” Jordan Peele has cemented his status as the next can’t-miss horror filmmaker. He’s also proven himself to be quite the horror expert, as he’s sprinkled in the most references to fright flicks we’ve seen since “American Horror Story.” Here are some of the references and inspirations we caught. (Warning: Minor Spoilers!)

At the start of the film, we see a commercial for “Hands Across America” on an old Crt flanked by several VHS tapes. One of the tapes is for the movie “C.H.U.D.,” which stands for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers. While the Tethered aren’t seen eating the bodies of those they kill, the parallel to monsters that live in the sewers turns out to be very appropriate.

The Crt intro is also used by another recently released horror film, “Climax,” which premiered in Cannes last year and is in theaters now.
