Summer Stranger Danger @lenalwilson @nytimes

The writer-director Jordan Peele’s latest nightmare is part of a long line of home-invasion movies like “The Last House on the Left” and “Straw Dogs” that tap into the fear that home may be where the danger is.

If you are rich enough to use “summer” as a verb, someone will try to murder you.
