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

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.

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.

Though not quite as timely or cohesive as his debut, Jordan Peele's Us, the hotly anticipated follow-up to Get Out, is an impressive sophomore effort which expands upon the appeal of his prior film without retracing its steps.

Jump, laugh, wince, gasp: these are all things that puppeteer [Jordan] Peele will make you do throughout Us.
