Paul McGuire Grimes, creator of Paul’s Trip to the Movies, has three great movies for you to check out.
US (in theaters)
Jordan Peele surprised audiences with his film Get Out. For a comedy actor, he proved he had the knack for directing horror while adding a social commentary not often found in the genre. He cements his voice in the genre with his new film Us. Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, both of whom starred in Black Panther, play a married couple who take their kids on a summer vacation to a beach home in Santa Cruz. As a kid Adelaide, suffered severe PTSD after an incident in a fun house on the Santa Cruz beach. Being back where it all began makes her a bit cautious about returning. The family heads to the beach again to meet up with some friends when their son, Jason, wanders off and runs into some odd people at the beach. Later that night, Adelaide and her family are the victims of a home invasion after a family is seen standing at the end of their driveway. As they slowly approach the house, it is revealed that this family are doppelgangers of Adelaide and her family.
Is It Worth Your Trip to the Movies? A horror masterpiece for the new age. Cannot wait to see what Peele will come up with his next film.
