People say Jordan Peele is a modern day Alfred Hitchcock, but I look at him more like the Chuck D and Public Enemy of horror. Check out the #moviereview for #US!
On the surface, as the trailers lead us to believe, Us is about a family terrorised by a family of doppelgangers who will stop at nothing to erase them and take over their lives. Scary stuff. But director Jordan Peele has also hinted that Us is about America, and it’s right there in the title Us “U.S.”, as in United States. It’s about the fear of the others, those who might invade their lives and take everything that they’ve worked for. The boogeyman, the foreign invader, Peele suggests that it’s us. We will be the ones to tear ourselves apart. Take a look around, it’s a bold and incredibly profound statement reflective of the times we live in weaved into a horror movie.
