Us : Movie Review

Us (2019) - Movie PosterThe dreaded sophomore slump is nowhere to be found in "Us," writer-director Jordan Peele's hair-raising follow-up to 2017's "Get Out." That film—a blistering satire delving into the festering disease of cross-generational racism and prejudice—introduced a major new voice within the horror genre. Instead of repeating himself, Peele has conjured another fresh and frightening vision with altogether different but no less pertinent intentions. Viewers searching for easily digestible entertainment may be left bewildered by the harrowing, thematically suggestive places the story and characters go. For the rest of us, there is a veritable treasure trove of ideas and angles upon which to digest and analyze. Indeed, with each new challenging implication, the film deepens and unsettles all the more. This is a consequentially powerful piece of work.
