Does anyone not like Tim Heidecker on at least some level? It seems like he's got boundless career potential that he's just now fully [& unironically] engaging with

I trust that Peele can find something that will something horrifying that fits his brand of acting. I like Tim a lot and I'm interested in seeing what he can do here.

It's a striking poster for sure but I can't decide if those are heads on the handles or the scissors are meant to be phallic or whatnot. The leaked synopsis states this is some kind of invasion thriller. Uninvited guests show up yadda yadda yadda. Makes me nervous about what those scissors will be used for.

Is it a reference to NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET -- the glove, the scissors (blades), the red sweater....?

Lots of leaks coming out about the film after months of relative silence. It's said to be a more straight-forward horror film without the social messaging of Get Out and has been compared to a specific Hitchcock film
