Highly Suspect Reviews: Us

US Podcast Movie Review


Jordan Peele’s sophomore effort as a director, Us, may not be so much a ‘horror comedy’ as his first film Get Out, but it is no question, a horror movie. Well, just ask him…

Case closed. Lupita Nyong’o plays Adelaide, happily married to Gabe (Winston Duke) with their two kids Zora and Jason. It’s holiday time and the fam is all packed up to stay in a summer home on the lake and near the beach where Adelaide originally grew up. Only something is haunting her. A past, a memory, a doppelganger, a funhouse on the beach…what happens when those memories, and an entire family of crazed doppelgangers, come to call? Peele explores this and the dark underbelly of America’s past (metaphorically) in this horror (NOT THRILLER…NO, I WON’T LET THIS GO) that also stars Elizabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Listen to what Chris, Marco, Ben, and Patience had to say about it…
