So for those of you who thought ‘Get Out” by the popular Director Jordan Peele, was lit, wait till you watch this brand new movie “US.” Most people actually felt he even told a better story here, quiet creepy and weird but then I enjoyed it.
Despite the fact I never like horror movies, there just something really nice and thrilling about the way the story was brought to life. I can assure you that this is one of those movies that leave you spellbound and speechless after watching and yet makes you want to see it again to get a better understanding of the movie.
For a few nights after seeing this movie, I kept thinking to myself, how brilliant the producer must be to think through this, write it down and bring it to reality. It was totally breathtaking and I still can’t get over this movie.
Please take note some reviews have scored this movie down, but I guess it’s because they don’t really understand the twist. You would need to be the best judge for this movie, which is why I would definitely recommend this movie, if you are a horror and thriller movie lover.
There were just so many things really beautiful about this one, from the fantastic production, amazing cast, crew, cinematography, to the locations chosen, everything was so detailed. There was something nice about each cast playing dual roles “the real earthly role and the cloned role in Red.
The twist to the storyline made it so interesting for me but please take note to get a full grasp of their thriller movie you must start from the very beginning and stay glued till the very end or else you end more even more confused than when it started.
“Us” the movie started quiet slowly as its typical to every horror or thriller movie, but then picks up very quickly just few scenes from the beginning and keeps the tempo high till the very end. The movie started with the scene of Lupita Nyong’o known as “Adelaide Wilson” and her family who were on a road trip to their getaway home for the summer holiday, she was married to her husband “Gabe” and they had a son called “Jason” and a daughter named “Zora”.
They had a smooth ride, got home unpacked and started out the holiday the next day, by taking some time out to relax on the beach, while on the beach Jason gets missing and Adelaide freaks out.
The movie quickly went on to the next level when that night they suddenly took note of another family in their drive way that looked exactly like them, more of like a clone of each of them from the underworld who wanted to take charge of their lives here on earth.
It was a terrible night on earth as most families lost their loved ones, and it seemed like no one was left on earth beside the “Wilson’s family”. At first it all seemed like a joke till they broke in and took each look alike on a wild goose chase, but for a weird reason didn’t kill any of them.
You will have to see the entire movie to find out how they fought to save their lives, go to the underworld to bring back her son and destroy all trace and track once and for all so she could keep her life for good, what a movie indeed this was.

So far it’s so easy to tell my verdict from my excitement and recommendation, I totally loved and enjoyed the movie, I am technically not supposed to love it, considering the fact that I am not a horror movie fan. The honest truth as I said earlier was that there was something weird and nice about this new movie, hence my score of 9.5/10, they totally killed it, and thinking of it now, I am wondering if we could have found a better black actress to play this lead role, but no I just can’t lay my hands on any. Everything was on point, although some people might try to find some loop holes at the end of the movie, please don’t try to over think and explain the movie, after all it’s just a movie and you can’t find a logical explanation for everything not even in reality.
Now will I recommend this movie? Yes, yes and yes and this is in total affirmation, please make sure you pay complete attention and you smile like I am doing even days after, when you get a full grasp of what he was trying to pass across.
