Jordan Peele surprised students at UCLA on Thursday, crashing a class studying black horror movies including his own, Get Out.
Peele popped up during Tananarive Due's course, Sunken Place: Racism, Survival, and Black Horror Aesthetic. He posed as a student, only making himself known to the rest of the group when he put his hand up to answer a question posed by Due.
Speaking to Gizmodo in a recent interview, Due explained that seeing Get Out inspired her to think about other horror movies that cover the black experience. Her course also looks at titles such as Birth Of A Nation, Tales From The Hood, and Blacula. She began teaching the class at the end of September.
Peele, meanwhile, is currently working on a number of projects following the huge success of his debut feature film. He will be an executive producer on The Hunt, a television series about Nazi hunters. and is also developing an HBO series alongside J.J. Abrams.
