VERDICT

Us is a terrifying horror that plays into one of humanity’s biggest fears: ourselves. While the story has its fair share of plot holes, the masterful direction, immersive cinematography and haunting score create a thrilling atmosphere filled with a strong script and grounded performances making for a real, horrifying look at the state of the world. It is a magnificent horror film showing Peele has found his niche.

★★★★★★★★★☆ 9/10 – Recommend
