Are you a fan of horror movies? If yes, then you must have heard about the movie Us.
This psychological horror film directed by Jordan Peele has created quite a buzz in the entertainment industry. But just how scary is Us the movie? Let’s find out.
Us is a story of a family who goes on vacation to their beach house. The story follows Adelaide Wilson, played by Lupita Nyong’o, and her husband Gabe Wilson, played by Winston Duke, along with their two children Zora and Jason. However, things take an unusual turn when Adelaide encounters her doppelganger along with her family.
The Scare Factor
Jordan Peele has done an excellent job of creating a tense atmosphere throughout the movie. The jump scares are well-timed and will keep you on edge throughout the movie. The eerie music and sound effects add to the overall unsettling vibe of the film.
One of the main elements that make Us so scary is the doppelgangers. Each member of Adelaide’s family has their own evil twin who looks exactly like them but acts in an entirely different manner. These doppelgangers are creepy and will give you chills down your spine every time they appear on screen.
Apart from being a horror movie, Us also has many hidden meanings and symbolism that adds depth to the story. Peele uses this element to create an unsettling feeling that stays with you even after the movie ends.
- Red jumpsuits worn by doppelgangers – symbolize suppressed emotions
- Golden scissors – used by doppelgangers to kill their counterparts, symbolize separation or cutting ties from oneself
- “Hands Across America” – event from 1986, symbolizes unity and togetherness, but in the movie, it’s shown as a sinister act
Overall, Us is an excellent horror movie that will keep you entertained and scared for its entire runtime. The story is well-crafted, and the performances by the cast are top-notch. Jordan Peele has once again proved that he is a master of horror movies.
So if you’re a fan of horror movies and love to be scared out of your wits, then Us is a must-watch. But beware, you might not be able to sleep peacefully after watching it!
