8/10

Jordan Peele, director of “Get Out,” an extremely successful and very popular horror movie of 2017,unveiled his newest addition to the horror movie genre in the form of, “US”

The movie is about a family’s lives turning to chaos when a group of doppelgängers begin to terrorize them. It premiered on March 22nd and has raised over 71 million dollars.

The overall plot of the movie is interesting, following the family as they attempt to protect themselves from their doppelgängers.

A major problem I have with the movie is the plot twist at the ending. The twist was only used as a quick scene as one of the main character’s flashbacks, calling back to the very beginning of the movie. It leaves many plot holes and asks more questions than it answers.

“Us” is unable to compete with its predecessor, but that it is still an overall enjoyable movie. However, sometimes clunky and repetitive, “Us” continues to demonstrate Peele’s understanding that great horror requires metaphors and an overall deeper meaning.

 Us receives an 8 out of 10 because of the many horror themes and the movie having to make you think and because of the style and overall direction.
