10 Tales to Tide You Over Until the Premiere of Jordan Peele's Us
Jordan Peele's Us opens March 22, and he recently revealed to Rolling Stone that the inspiration for this horror flick came from an episode of The Twilight Zone called "Mirror Image." The show tells the story of a woman who encounters her double at a bus stop and fears the duplicate will assume her identity. Peele's film, which costars Black Panther alums Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke, builds on this concept by highlighting the theme "We are our own worst enemy." His story centers on a young married couple and their children, who find themselves fending off a home invasion from ominous shadow beings — evil doppelgängers Peele refers to as "The Tethered." So if you're looking for more creepy theories on the duality of the human mind, these 10 thrillers may be just what the doctor ordered.
