In order to get away from their busy lives, the Wilson family takes a vacation to Santa Cruz, California with the plan of spending time with their friends, the Tyler family. On a day at the beach, their young son Jason almost wanders off, causing his mother Adelaide to become protective of her family. That night, four mysterious people break into Adelaide’s childhood home where they’re staying. The family is shocked to find out that the intruders look like them, only with grotesque appearances.

I have to admit that I was a bit confused of where this movie was going… but, as it progressed, and more was revealed, I really enjoyed myself. Jordan Peele is showing that he has a the skills to make it in the world of horror. And the fact that he’s bringing black actors into the forefront is refreshing, for a genre which normally kills black actors off quickly. I seriously can’t wait to see more from him.

Absolutely no issues with any of the performances, all those involved did a great job. Music was appropriately creepy, no complaints!

Do yourself a favor and don’t sneak a peak at before watching, follow the story as it plays out, and most of you won’t be disappointed.
