Meme Of The Week: Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ Looks Super Creepy But The Memes Are Funny

Jordan Peele’s Get Out was a Hollywood sensation, cementing him as visionary director and deepening the conversation about race and onscreen representation. His much anticipated follow-up is another star-studded horror movie and it looks just as amazing and promising as you’d expect.

Starring Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke and Elizabeth Moss, the film tells the story of a family who is terrorized by four strangers that look exactly like them. Filled with creepy and already iconic imagery, the storyline looks as if it follows the classical home invasion model of movies, only much more thought provoking. Since the trailer’s release, it’s been viewed over 8,000,000 times, making it the perfect subject for memes.
