Considered by some of the reviewers as “a masterpiece” and a “masterclass” in filmmaking, Jordan Peele’s new horror film has taken SXSW by storm. In fact, one reviewer compared Peele’s style of filmmaking to John Carpenter, Craven and Romero - with a positive reception from all the critics who attended the SXSW screening.

Following Jordan Peele’s directorial debut in 2017 with “Get Out,” his newfound passion for shooting gripping horrors has taken his filmmaking talents to new scary heights in “Us” and audiences are impressed. The film includes powerful performances from the likes of Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss and Lupita Nyong’o, and is set in Northern California.

Peele’s psychological horror was officially announced just over a year ago, where he teamed up again with the producers for “Get Out,” and put the project into motion with filming taking place over the summer of 2018.
