The haunting film, starring the Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, boasts the enviable Rotten Tomatoes ‘fresh’ rating thanks to a 93% approval rating from specialized critics.
As with Get out, We separates from what can be considered as traditional terror to offer us an authentic proposal that plays with psychology; that is, Peele uses the viewer’s perception to generate moments of discomfort from the first moment.
