Just when fans began recovering from the nightmarish experiences after watching Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” movie, he surprised them with a chilling Christmas gift.

The critically acclaimed filmmaker unveiled the trailer for his follow-up motion picture “Us,” which follows an African-American family haunted
their sinister-esque, identical doppelgangers

Lupita Nyong’o and her Black Panther co-star Winston Duke star opposite as parents of two children, played by Shahadi Wright-Joseph and Evan Alex.

“Very important for me was to have a black family at the center of a horror film,” Peele said in a recent press viewing. “But it’s also important to note, unlike Get Out, Us is not about race. It is instead about something that I feel has become an undeniable truth. And that is the simple fact that we are our own worst enemies.”

“I dedicated a lot of myself to create a new horror mythology and a new monster,” Peele said. “I think that monsters and stories about monsters are one of our best ways of getting at deeper truths and facing our fears as a society.”

Us opens March 15, 2019. Watch the trailer, below.
