Twitter has had a mind-blowing reaction to Jordan Peele’s new ‘Us’ horror film, which hit theaters recently.
The dark film stars Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther, 12 Years A Slave), Winston Duke (Black Panther, The Messengers), Elizabeth Moss (Girl Interrupted, Mad Men), and Shahadi Wright Joseph (Lion King). For those of you who haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and go out and give it a view.
You’ll join the rest of the following viewers who were left absolutely awestruck by the film. Here are some reactions from fans on Twitter after seeing the movie:
Lupita Nyong’o is a superstar and we’re so blessed to have someone of her caliber in our genre. Her performance is an instant addition to the horror hall of fame. It would be incredible to see her get an Oscar nom next year. ? #UsMovie pic.twitter.com/zMq70ioaGQ— BBB Miska ? (@bradmiska) March 22, 2019
Each group of people are pointing fingers at another group & blaming them for the problems in the country but as #UsMovie depicts so vividly..when u point fingers u have three pointing back at u. We, as Americans, are to blame. It’s US. Ourselves to blame. I love Jordan Peele— . (@xxxaw_) March 22, 2019
“We are Americans” said loud and clear. US. “US” We’re our own worst enemy and won’t stop until the world is unrecognizable. Only to discover we were the reason for our own demise. Jeremiah 11:11 we’ve been warned. #UsMovie— Kiarra Roberts (@KiarraRoberts) March 22, 2019
Dear Mr. @JordanPeele,— Dino-Ray Ramos (@DinoRay) March 20, 2019
How are you gonna make a movie that is scarier and even more tense on the second viewing?
I was shook the first time and now I am shooker. Gonna watch it a third time and will be shookest.
Thank you sir. #UsMovie is a gloriously fucked up mood.
Holy cow, #UsMovie is quite a ride – terror, suspense and comedy, wrapped in mystery and style. Jordan Peele is exactly what Get Out introduced us to – one of the most exciting filmmakers working today. I’m anxious for a second viewing (and a third Jordan Peele movie). pic.twitter.com/dCgoysm8El— Dan Murrell (@MurrellDan) March 20, 2019
If @Lupita_Nyongo doesn’t get an Oscar nomination for @UsMovie, we are going to really need to re-evaluate the Academy’s ability to judge quality work — particularly in the horror genre.— Jake Hamilton (@JakesTakes) March 22, 2019
“Red” is one of the most terrifying cinematic creations I’ve ever seen. pic.twitter.com/a9rECkOgtw
Best feeling is watching a movie and having no idea what to expect at any given moment but knowing you can fully trust the hands you’re in. That’s #UsMovie. I don’t say this lightly, it’s a masterpiece. Scary, funny, deeply powerful. Lupita Nyong’o may have just won an Oscar. pic.twitter.com/kUVwhOpzk3— John Squires (@FreddyInSpace) March 22, 2019
Just randomly got a little bit emotional about how good Lupita is in this movie. You walk away like “Damn she was GOOD.” The next morning it’s like… “Ok that performance was Phenomenal!” And the day after that you start to realize that there was real magic at work. #USMovie— Yahya Abdul-Mateen 2 (@yahya) March 21, 2019
Y’all need to hurry up and see this movie so we can talk. I got a headache #UsMovie— Empier Meetchie (@EmpierMeetchie) March 22, 2019
