Us (2019)

The Wilsons arrive at their beachside home along the Northern California coastline. Mother, Adelaide Wilson, is haunted by distant memories and odd coincidences while the rest of the family enjoys their time in her childhood home. Their perfect summer vacation turns ugly when their doppelgängers appear, ready to take their places.

The unsettling doppelgänger screeches and awkward silences in Us make me either want to laugh or cry. Cracking jokes while murdering doppelgängers during an American culling is no easy accomplishment. This film is an artfully constructed night terror about fighting for your existence.

Best movie moment: Fuck tha Police.
