Following the success of GET OUT, much-lauded director Jordan Peele brings us his second horror vision; a queasy, twisty thriller that begins inoffensively enough, before dragging audiences down the rabbit hole into a dark, terrifying tale of a family holiday torn apart by an unexplained mob of menacing doppelgangers. Lupita Nyong’o leads a top flight cast , as the Wilson family descend upon their holiday location of Santa Cruz, only to become the hunted prey of some seriously twisted lookalikes, hellbent on taking them out.
Peele’s film is taut, tense, and ultimately terrifying – as a filmmaker his style of direction is just thrilling to watch, and with a peerless cast bringing his story to screen here, US is an incredibly worthy successor to GET OUT.
