No Exit (2022) | Movie Review [Spoiler Free]

[Header: Hulu]

Before watching No Exit, I’d read the book. It definitely influenced my opinion of the movie. Personally, I prefer the book but I enjoyed both and I’m glad I sat down to watch this adaptation. For those who don’t know. No Exit follows Darby who is forced to take refuge at a rest stop during a blizzard.

At the time of writing this, I have just finished watching Knives Out. I don’t always like to write these reviews immediately after, preferring to wait a few hours at least, but this one just felt appropriate. I’ll start by saying this, I enjoyed this movie very much and I’ll most likely re-watch it again sometime in the future.

“Once upon a time, there was a girl and the girl had a shadow. The two were connected, tethered together.”

I have been wanting to see this movie ever since the first trailer dropped. After seeing (and loving) Get Out, I was already pretty excited to see what Jordan Peele’s next work would be and Us really did deliver.

For those of who don’t know, Us follows a family who, while on vacation, are terrorised by their doppelgängers.
