Seeing Us in a theater of people was a blast. As in most horror movies, the characters on screen do things that we the audience know is no good. Having various people in the crowd react was perfect. From the “no no no no”s to the “Don’t go in there!” Just a good horror movie going experience.
Us’ trailer gives too much plot away. It just does. But the idea of your evil doppelganger coming after you is powerful. Especially if it is doppelgangers of your whole family.
The scope explodes far beyond what you think.
Music plays heavily in Us. The soundtrack is good and has some entries I am not familiar with.
All the actors kill it in Us. Even the supporting players.
There is a twist that horror movie fans will see coming a mile away. But that does not detract from the movie.
