Us (2019)


A family’s serenity turns to chaos when a group of doppelgängers begins to terrorize them. (IMDb)
Peele’s direction is stellar–so is Nyong’o–and is tailor-made for horror, with its patient camera, stunning visuals, and poignantly mischievous flair (see the unique use of pop songs that adds an unsettling realism to the gory thrills). The writing is equally compelling, but with hiccups: The surprising humour is good but often punctures the mood, and the fascinating social subtext (see Red’s amazing fireplace speech) comes to a slightly muddy (though still thought-provoking) climax.
7.5/10 (Really Good)



    1. thanks for the comment! yeah, i guess it could go either way! it was good humour for sure, but because the movie wasn’t a full-on horror-comedy it didn’t sit as well as it would have if the rest of it had that same tone! but that’s just my opinion! (PS. thanks for the follow!)
