Of course, coming out of the gate with a feature debut like GET OUT, there were great expectations for Jordan Peele’s follow-up horror film, US. Happily, Peele has exceeded them all with this innovative freak-out. A husband eager for some family together time convinces his wife to bring their kids to her family’s vacation home in Santa Cruz for a getaway. On their first night there, however, things get creepy when another family shows up in their driveway and forces their way into the house. To give away more would be a disservice to those who haven’t seen it but, suffice to say that, US is a thrilling horror film with an epic-in-scope backstory that is a treat on the big screen with an engaged audience.

“”Us” is political filmmaking of the most spirited sort, and it sets up quite a fight: the Hydes come to visit the Jekylls, and the Jekylls hit back. Whom you cheer for, in the long run, is up to you.”
– Anthony Lane, New Yorker

“A stunning sophomore effort from Jordan Peele.”
– Chris Hewitt, Empire

“‘Us’ is nothing short of a colossal achievement.”
– Richard Brody, New Yorker
