The trailer for Get Out director Jordan Peele's new movie Us is the stuff of nightmares.

If you’re a horror movie fan, we’ve got a very exciting belated Christmas present for you.

The trailer for Jordan Peele’s upcoming film Us is here and it’s utterly terrifying.

Starring Black Panther stars Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o, the film follows a family as they head to their beach house to catch up with friends including A Handmaid’s Tale actress Elisabeth Moss.

The family’s holiday soon takes a turn for the worst when they discover their holiday home is haunted by some creepy unwelcome visitors.

The worst part? The terrifying figures look just like them.

“It’s us,” the family’s young son says as an identical (albeit, horrifying) family descend on their driveway.

“They look like us, they think like us, they know where we are. They won’t stop until they kill us – or we kill them.”

Although Director Peele’s 2017 Oscar-winning film Get Out had a predominant focus on race, Peele said his decision to have a black family at the centre of Us was not “about” race.

“[It was] very important for me to have a black family at the centre of a horror film,” he said.

“But it’s also important to note this movie, unlike Get Out, is not about race. It is instead, about something that I feel has become an undeniable fact: the simple truth that we are our own worst enemies.”

According to Vulture, Peele told journalists at a press conference last week that Us is about creating “a new horror mythology and a new monster”.

“Stories about monsters are one of our best ways of getting at deeper truths and facing our fears as a society,” the director said.

The upcoming movie is already gaining a huge amount of traction on Twitter, with many fans trying to decode the meaning behind the film.
