Critics are already calling 'Us' the most terrifying movie of 2019. Here's why.

The scariest movie of 2019 appears to be before… us.

Us, directed by Oscar-winning director of Get Out Jordan Peele, premiered in the United States yesterday and the critic’s reactions are very promising.

With a star-studded cast including Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Elisabeth Moss, and the beauty of the the idyllic Northern Californian coast line where the film is set, the film appears to be far from a horror movie… until it’s not.

The plot follows a woman returning to her beachside hometown with her family for a Summer getaway.

After becoming increasingly paranoid that something bad will happen to her family, she spots four people standing in the driveway in the dark, holding hands.

Upon closer inspection, they are exact doppelgängers of their family.

What happens next appears to be terrifying.

Based on the Twitter reactions, we can gather that the movie is equally confusing as it is horrifying, as the director allows the audience to “use their imaginations”.






We don’t know what to make of all this, but one thing is for sure; we will be lining up to watch Us before spoilers get out.

Us will be released in Australian cinemas on March 22.
