Us is a nightmarish story with elements of home invasion, duplicates, class struggle and questions of identity as a successful man and his family are besieged by murderous doubles called the Tethered who are furious about how they have lived opposite lives of misery and destitution. Solid acting, scary premise, a nod to the 80s and such paranoia movies as Invasion of the Body Snatchers and The Thing make this Jordan Peele film worth seeing and remembering! It's effectively creepy! Enjoy.Erik M.
Trivia: Spoilers: Among the video-tapes seen next to the TV after the opening credits are "C.H.U.D." and "The Goonies." This is quite relevant to the plot, in which it is revealed that the doppelgangers come from beneath the ground in a series of tunnels that used to be run by the government. "C.H.U.D." is about mutant creatures that live underground and have began to rise up and attack, like the doppelgangers, and "Goonies" takes place largely in underground tunnels and caverns, much like the film's climax.TedStixon
