Us (2019) Film Review

After getting lost at a fun fair as a child, Adelaide (Lupita Nyong’o) has never wanted to return to that place. But when on holidays nearby with her family, suddenly a family of doppelgängers appear with nefarious intent, and she needs to face what she has repressed.

I loved this. As is well established, I’m not great with horror films and tend to watch them during the day to reduce my fear factor. I’m not going to look too closely at the overall plot, because there seem to be a few key flaws which I don’t want to notice. I love the style, the cinematography and set dressing and costumes. So stunning. It’s just so creepy, I love the way Nyong’o and the rest of the cast are so creepy as the doppelgängers, and the fear is so real. This really worked for me.
