Unsettling Us

Jordan Peele’s latest horror film, Us, is like nothing you’ve seen before. The director is making horror that is shocking, layered in metaphor, and deeply unsettling. When I got this package of treats in the mail for the film, I have to admit it was pretty damn creepy.

Even the letter that came with the kit gave me goosebumps.

“In honor of fulfilling your manifestation, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has sent you a care package to help you cut your strings and honor this momentous day.”

Some lucky winners earned themselves Blu-ray copies last week, and if you haven’t had the chance to check out the film, now is the time. You can stream it on your favourite digital service, like Google Play, or order Us through Amazon. Us is must-see horror.

“Set along the North California coastline, Adelaide Wilson (Nyong’o) reluctantly returns to her beach side childhood home with her family and finds that she is haunted by unresolved trauma from her past along with a string of eerie coincidences. As darkness falls after a tense day at the beach, the Wilsons discover four figures standing in their driveway. They soon realize this is only the beginning of their troubles as they find that the four figures are terrifying and uncanny opponents: doppelgängers of themselves.”

Thanks Mr. Peele for the incredible film, and thanks to Universal for the creepy goodies.
