Just like Get Out (2017) was a black version of the Stepford Wives; Us is a black version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Both movies are allegories about minority culture and identity being appropriated (and destroyed) by mainstream society. See more »
No one in the tunnels would have survived as long as they did with rabbit as their only food source. Rabbit is high in protein, but contains no other vital nutrients. The effect is referred to as 'rabbit poisoning'. See more »

Did I watch the same movie as the people that are giving this a 10/10???
Was excited to watch this movie with all the hype surrounding it. The first 20 mins or so was on par with my expectations and then it just fell flat on its face. Not nearly as good as Get Out. Way to many plot holes and un answered questions. Acting was decent and writing was average. Some funny parts and the soundtrack are the only thing that really saves this movie from being a 3 or a 4.
