Jordan Peele has tightened his grip in "Us," a less satirical, more slaughterhouse horror parable than the writer-director's astonishing debut, "Get Out". Despite its deficiencies, "Us" will leave all who enter its shadowy world convinced of Peele's growing command as a singular conjurer of American nightmares.In "Us," Peele has produced a terrifying artifact: a sinister ballet of doppelgangers and inversions that makes flesh the unseen underbelly lurking beneath every sunny American dream and behind every contented nuclear family."Us" begins on images of one such moment of supposed unity. Peele's script, delving so relentlessly into terror, doesn't leave either side of the mirror room for much reflection.There's an undeniable power of "Us," however, as a deeper, more primal vision of a two-tiered truth in American society that's as unshakable as one's shadow. While each member of the family excels, Nyong'o delivers arguably her fiercest, most extraordinary performance as both Adelaide and her monstrous doppelganger.
