In just one week GET OUT writer/director Jordan Peele's new horror film US will be reaching theatres, and in anticipation of the movie's release we have a couple clips to share that give a preview of some intense moments.

Starring Lupita Nyong'o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon, and Madison Curry, US follows 

Adelaide and Gabe Wilson as they take their kids to Adelaide’s old childhood beachside home in Northern California for the summer. After a day at the beach with the Tyler family, Adelaide — who’s haunted by a lingering trauma from her past — becomes increasingly more paranoid that something bad will happen to her family. As night falls, the Wilsons see four figures holding hands and standing silently at the bottom of their driveway…

As the trailers have revealed, those four figures are homicidal doppelgängers of Adelaide, Gabe, and their two children.

In the clips embedded below, we find that Adelaide is afraid of someone referred to as the "mirror girl" even before the doppelgängers show up. The second clip takes place at the beginning of the doppelgänger invasion, and shows how Gabe handles those first moments of weirdness.

If you don't want to refer to the creepy characters in this movie as doppelgängers, another option is "the Tethered". That's what Peele calls them.

We'll see just how scary the Tethered can get when US is released on March 22nd.
