Us

The subject of doppelgängers is rich for cinematic potential as we saw in Richard Ayoade’s excellent The Double. Jordan Peele takes it up a notch in Us with a whole family terrorised by slightly more unhinged versions of themselves.

I can’t recommend the film highly enough. The follow up to Peele’s critically acclaimed Oscar winning debut Get Out is an intelligent horror that is properly terrifying and yet funny and sweet at the same time. Lupita Nyong’o’s dual lead performance is phenomenal and the ending deeply satisfying - one of my favourites of recent time.
