A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
In order to get away from their busy lives, the Wilson family takes a vacation to Santa Cruz, California with the plan of spending time with their friends, the Tyler family. On a day at the beach, their young son Jason almost wanders off, causing his mother Adelaide to become protective of her family. That night, four mysterious people break into Adelaide's childhood home where they're staying. The family is shocked to find out that the intruders look like them, only with grotesque appearances.Written by
While the Wilsons are in the Tylers' house, Jason eats a bowl of dry Froot Loops. This references a scene in Jordan Peele's previous movie, Get Out (2017), in which a character eats Froot Loops and drinks milk from "segregated" glasses. See more »
Why didn't the government euthanize the clones once the project was canned 30 years prior? And why did they clone every American citizen instead of just testing the waters with a few clones instead? Leaving them abandoned to fend for themselves in underground tunnels leaves the risk of civilians discovering them or the clones escaping, which is exactly what happens. See more »
Did you know that there's fluoride in the water that the government uses to control our minds?

"Get Out" of the mindset that this is a straight-forward horror film
People thinking this will be a straight-forward horror film will be disappointed; Us (2019) is a complex, mind bending experience that tests the limitations of what a horror film can be. What's great about the film is how differently people will interpret what they've witnessed. I left the theater tonight to the sounds of people passionately discussing theories, different explanations and thoughts on it all - and that, to me, is one of the great joys in leaving a great film.
