Blu-ray Review: Us
  |  @   |  

Us
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | Digital | DVD
Director: Jordan Peele
Writer: Jordan Peele
Cast: Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | Minutes: 116
Release Date: June 11, 2019

Jordan Peele redefines the genre in bold new ways by weaving in truth and honesty with horror. But horror has acted as a reflection on the society we live in now by terrifying us with the sort of imagery that very few would like to admit is true. With Us we get to see the monsters within us, or at least, the monsters that are capable of living within us.

And now, with the release of the Blu-ray, we get to see how Peele crafted this movie with precision and great detail. Check out our review, plus a look at some of the bonus features that take a deeper look at the production of the film, below.

‘Us’ Blu-ray Arrives To Haunt Your Lovely Home This June
  |  @   |  

One of my favorite horror films to come out this year will finally be available for you to own this summer. Jordan Peele‘s Get Out follow-up Us was a huge box office success grossing over $170 million since it first opened back in March.

Now, Universal is ready to give us a reason to be afraid to go into a House of Mirrors or at least question everything we know about ourselves when they release the film on digital, 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD. Check out the full list of special features below.

Movie Review: Us
  |  @   |  

Us
Director: Jordan Peele
Writer: Jordan Peele
Cast: Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | Minutes: 116
Release Date: March 20, 2019

The phrase “we are our own worst enemy” is a theme that plays a huge part in Jordan Peele‘s Us. The filmmaker’s sophomore effort walks that fine line between horror and social satire. It examines the human condition and uses scares as a vehicle to take a look at the monsters that lurk beneath our skin and what would happen if it were ever to crawl out of it. The end result is another genre-bending film with something to say. While allegories and metaphors have been a part of the fabric of horror films, Peele knows how to deliver that message with terrifying precision. Check out my full review of Us here below.
