Movie Info

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

Critic Reviews for Us

All Critics (460) | Top Critics (52)

  • Us revolves around an allegory that's more elastic and resistant to parsing than megahit Get Out.

  • ... it achieves an insidious, lingering effect that's rarer in the horror genre.

    Mar 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • For all its unevenness and confusion, cannot be dismissed. Something genuinely urgent seems to be happening, especially in the performances by Nyong'o and, to a lesser extent, Moss.

    Mar 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Ambition in the horror genre can be a good thing, but the overreach in this movie detracts from both the horror and the ambition. Having said that, Peele shows a marked advance in filmmaking skills here and, in her dual role, Nyong'o is ferociously good.

    Mar 25, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • This film, unlike its predecessor, isn't perfect. But it is a richly intriguing riot of imagery and ideas that demands to be rewatched again and again.

    Mar 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It wouldn't be as truly terrifying as it is without the jaw-dropping performance from his leading lady, Nyong'o, and with this collaboration they have created another whip-smart modern horror classic.
