'It's us,' says the family's child staring at the quartet of doppelgängers. Jordan Peele, the acclaimed writer-director of Get Out, is back with a new psychological horror movie. Us is a chilling tale about the Wilsons, a family of four, facing creepy versions of themselves while on a vacation to a beach resort town.

The actors had to play two different roles, sometimes in the same scene. Lupita Nyong'o (The Walking Dead, Black Panther) plays Adelaide, who goes back to her hometown many years after she had a strange experience there, when she was a young girl. Winston Duke (who played M'Baku in the Avengers films) is her husband Gabe. The siblings of the couple are performed by young actors Shahadi Wright Joseph (Zora) and Evan Alex (Jason). Completing the main cast are the family's old friends the Tylers, played by Elisabeth Moss as Kitty (The Handmaid's Tale) and Tim Heidecker is Josh.

Most of the exterior scenes of Us were filmed in Santa Cruz (California):

  4. For those wishing to come to The Santa Cruz Beach boardwalk and search for the 'House of Mirrors' just off the sand, you know the spot where it ALL Began, unfortunately that 'Spot' doesn't exist... But it sure would have been a great move by The Santa Cruz Beach and Boardwalk to add it. Right?
