’s Leo Brady reviews “Us” at SXSW

I can’t believe I gave Get Out 3 ½ stars. I can tell you, I won’t be making that mistake again with Jordan Peele’s newest film- Us. It’s unfair for audiences to expect another Get Out, but this is not just about repeating the past. This is a movie that cements a director into a status of being the prominent voice for the horror genre, films that make a statement about who we are, and twists our stomachs into knots. Us is about a family fighting themselves, the way we isolate ourselves from each other, and a horrific slice of the supernatural. Us is a terrifying, layered film, reminding us that we are our own worst enemy.
