US is proof Jordan Peele is the real deal. What a fresh, exciting voice in horror this guy is. I hope he sticks with the genre for a long time, because the genre needs him. Also: Hollywood has SERIOUSLY been wasting Lupita Nyong’o.
There’s so much I love about this, particularly how Peele balances deeper, cerebral, ambiguous chills with Spielbergian thrills.
I’m also D R E A D I N G the “plot hole” crowd reaction to this, though, because there’s so much left unsaid. And whenever a movie dares to be equivocal, some people tend to yell “OMG PLOT HOLE!!"
