Way better than it had any right to be. The first act is particularly brilliant...hilarious and creepy in equal measure. Mark Hamil shines as the new Chucky. The second half is pretty generic slasher stuff, but it contains some excellent kill scenes. There’s life in this old doll yet.
I love Jordan Peele’s brain. ‘Us’ feels like it’s crammed with huge, ambitious ideas and has so much to say. It works best when being unapologetically bonkers and basking in its surreal chilling images and creepy soundtrack (that I Got 5 On It remix!!!), but is least interesting when ticking conventional home invasion horror movie boxes and grinding to a halt to provide exposition. It’s no Get Out, but what is? I’m already eager to see it a second time. The horror genre is a more interesting place with Jordan Peele in it.
