Of course I am not going to kill your vibe and tell you how this one ends. That is what the spoiler alert is for to do the deed.(smile) I will say that this is not the movie to watch if you have to go to the little girls or boys room or popcorn refills. Like every great director Peele is forcing you to sit down and absorb all of the clues. Like the bunny rabbits in the opening credits. As a fiction writer myself I appreciate hard earned plot twists and the type of film that I may have to see again to piece together the end. And you know what, I will look at this again because the ending is pretty ‘out there’ and the fun is figuring out how my own eyes and mind was tricked into thinking something else.
The film is not without controversy as the immensely gifted leading lady of the film Lupita Nyong find herself having to apologize for the voice she used in her duel role. Here is a passage from an article from The Guardian.
Lupita Nyong’o has apologised after she was criticised for mentioning Robert F Kennedy Jr and the larynx disorder spasmodic dysphonia as inspirations for her role in horror film Us.
So as for the kids coming to this one, use discretion, pretty disturbing stuff. If you have seen it , ere is the SPOILER ALERT link that addresses THE ENDING. The questions I have before looking at the explanation is to why did they make the father such a weak link? It was so obvious there was a message behind it. The rabbits running around was explained to me by the CEO of this publication. (: So I am clicking the link.
