Jordan Peele’s highly anticipated follow-up to Get Out, Us, premiered last night at SXSW in Austin, TX. After his culture-shifting debut film, which won him an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, fans were eager to see Peele’s sophomore effort. After all, how do you follow a massive success like Get Out?

Well, fans need not worry, because according to the Twitter reactions after the premiere, Us has the makings of a brand new classic. The film, written and directed by Peele, stars Winston Duke and Lupita Nyong’o (both of whom starred in Black Panther) as a married couple going on vacation with their kids. The trip soon takes a chilling turn as they are confronted and terrorized by their doppelgangers.

Once the film, ended the audience took to Twitter to share their reactions, and let’s just say, this film looks amazing:

Janelle Monae sums it up perfectly:

Us hits theaters March 22nd and we cannot wait. How about you?
