After sending shockwaves across contemporary culture and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, Get Out, Academy Award-winning visionary Jordan Peele returned with another original nightmare.

Set in the present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us stars Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway.

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home to discover the silhouettes of four figures standing in their driveway. Us pits an ordinary American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Us does us all a great service by handing Lupita Nyong’o a genuine starring role instead of using this talented, beautiful, Oscar-winning actress as secondary exotica or a supporting strut. In fact, Nyong’o delivers impressively not once but twice.

Us is a serious film about the American underclass, those who toil out of sight and out of mind. Us is also a lot of fun.

Us feels like something meant to be watched over and over until the tape wears down, and we graft our own meaning and nightmares onto it.
