Bitches of Horror - Us Review


Starring Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker

Jordan Peele's cocktail blend of horror inspiration plays out similarly to, say, an extended episode of The Twilight Zone or Outer Limits, but instead of feeling unnecessarily stretched, it leverages the extra breathing room to construct a very creative multi-layered narrative. In this case, the concept of duality as a prism through which all our observations are filtered. On the very surface, this is a home invasion thriller of apocalyptic proportions, and just on that front, it works well enough. But give it time to unravel; Us begins to accelerate and focus and reveal the other side of this dual-message setup, ultimately leaving you at the doorstep of a revelation that absolutely demands you watch it all over again—from the other side of that prism. Peele is a genius.

A family's serene beach vacation turns to chaos when their doppelgängers appear and begin to terrorize them.
