(85) 2019 served us some slightly underwhelming horror follow-ups from emerging directors. Jordan Peele is no doubt a cinematic force, and Us is unmistakably his work. It’s a gorgeous and well-acted film, launches from an interesting premise, and (like Midsommar) still manages to fall short of expectations. Peele has a great knack for comedy, however, and Us never slows – even when it stumbles. This means that re-watching the film should be a breeze, and Us offers a compelling reason to do so in its final moments.
