What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Us is a horror movie from Get Out director Jordan Peele. Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong'o) and her husband, Gabe (Winston Duke), decide to take their family on a summer vacation to Adelaide's childhood home in Santa Cruz. But things take a scary turn when four mysterious intruders break in. They look, talk, and think exactly like the members of the Wilson family, and the monsters start terrorizing each of them. Only Adelaide knows the secret of these creatures and can help stop them. Expect plenty of violence, gore, and jump scares from this horror movie, which will likely be too intense for young or sensitive viewers.
