Jordan Peele is absolutely brilliant when it comes to crafting unforgettable horror experiences and the film Nope simply adds to his credibility. While Nope wasn’t quite as well received as Get Out and Us, it is no doubt a beloved film to many– especially Jordan Peele fans. Although Nope has already seen both a theatrical and Prime Video release, it is definitely worth mentioning that this unique horror experience is officially coming to Peacock!
For those who are unfamiliar with the film: Nope is a sci-fi horror that follows the story of two siblings who run a horse ranch in California. The two siblings witness a magnificent yet terrifying phenomenon lurking in the sky above, in addition to a nearby theme park owner who wishes to use said phenomenon for his own profit and gain. Jordan Peele uses Nope to tell the tale of a beautifully unique UFO sighting, while also warning viewers about the consequences of humans selfishly attempting to subdue and control nature.
For those who have yet to see Nope, Jordan Peele offers a thrilling experience as usual. Yes, this film has already seen a very broad release, however a fresh introduction to a fantastic platform is nothing to remain silent over! Between Jordan Peele’s brilliance, as well as Daniel Kaluuya and Steven Yeun’s fantastic performance, Nope most definitely deserves its place on this list of the biggest horror movies releasing November 2022 as it makes its way to Peacock for more people to enjoy!

Moving forward, this next movie will sound less familiar yet appears to be full of just as much thrilling content! Psychological horror often highlights the struggles and terrors of real life as we know of it: Nanny is no different.
This psychological horror film follows Aisha, a woman who recently emigrated from Senegal, as she is hired to care for an extremely wealthy family’s child in New York City. As Aisha has left her son behind, she hopes that her new job will be able to bring him to the U.S. as well. For awhile, things seem to be going okay. However, as Aisha’s son’s arrival approaches, a violent phenomenon begins to invade both her reality and dreams. Aisha must fight and win against this violent presence if she is to maintain her American dream, or otherwise take it as a sign to run away while she still can.
