It’s safe to say that Jordan Peele is Hollywood’s king of horror. After Get Out he returned to the screen with the movie Us, the story about the Wilson family, their doppelgängers and a maze of underground tunnels where the Tethered live. Us has been welcomed by praises and loads of theories about who’s who and what’s happening why. For example -and how can we say this without spoiling it for the people who haven’t seen it but want to do so before May 26- … why isn’t Jason’s trick working? But also, what’s the symbolism? Did you catch the references to other horror films? And, of course… are there connections between Us and Get Out?
Thursday Night goes Sunday
This event is a co-production with Het Nieuwe Instituut and part of their Thursday Night Live! series. To make it clear: yes, this event will happen on a Sunday.
On Sunday May 26, a group of movie nerds share their thoughts about the film. They promise to do so in such a way that the conversation is also interesting for people who, for example because they’re afraid of horror films, didn’t see the film. Needless to say there will be spoilers.
With: Ola Hassanain, Malique Mohamud, Simone Zeefuik and Richard Kofi.
