Us

Jordan Peele is definitely not a one hit wonder! After “Get Out!” two years ago, he gives us “Us” starring Lupita Nyong’o and all I can say is wow! There is a strange feeling from the beginning when a little girl wonders off at a beachside amusement park into a house of mirrors. Twenty five years later she is with her family going to their vacation home. Intruders come in, but they are not normal criminals. “Us” is a post modern zombie movie, with a twist. Like the best suspense/horror movies it keeps you guessing. You don’t know what will happen next nor what the creatures’ motives are. Any filmmaker who can keep me guessing deserves my praise, like M. Mike Shalaman in “The Sixth Sense”. Peele has done it twice.
