A directorial debut like Get Out is a dream for many directors but the pressure for your next film after a debut like that is always quite high. This time Peele ignores the race issue even if the lead characters are all African Americans. Us is like the series Counterpart with a tinge of Mother!.
The plot of the story is about a family confronting their look alikes who want to hurt them very badly. Though it's a pure horror unlike Get Out there are a lot of jokes in this film which really tickles you. The film falls short of Get Out in creating an atmosphere of mystery and confusion but the tension in this is very high. Lupita Nyong'o shines once again and definitely has a shot at the Oscars, Elizabeth Moss with the little screen time till impresses.
The score is very haunting and in the car scene towards the end of the movie you really cannot think of the scene without the score. A nice follow up after Get Out for Peele but definitely not as good. In this era of horror movies, the battle between Peele and Ari Aster whose Midsommar is releasing later this year is a dream like scenario.
