In just a little over a year, Jordan Peele has made another horror film, “Us”. It is his follow up to last year’s big hit “Get Out”. But it is not a sequel, it is a whole new movie with a completely different subject matter. I for one, am excited to see a brand-new idea for a scary movie.
*The MEAT* The story is *Borderline Brilliant* It is classic suspense horror with an underlining science fiction to it that adds thought provoking layers to keep you guessing while having you on the edge of your seat at the same time. Jordan Peele doesn’t want to just scare you, he wants you to leave the theater thinking about it for a while.
*The POTATOES* Lupita Nyong’o gives an *Outstanding* performance here. Would love to explain deeper, but I can’t because I don’t want to give anything away in this review. Just trust me, she is *Outstanding*
*The Verdict* “Us” is just a *Terrific* movie in the genre of horror films. And just like “Get Out” it will leave a lasting impression on you that will be discussed for years to come. I do recommend seeing it in the theater for sure. It is scary, violent, suspenseful and fun. Exactly what a great Horror movie should be.
