What is it?

The 2019 American psychological horror-thriller movie Us.

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home.

When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway.

Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

My Thoughts

This movie was better than I had expected, and it surprised me with some of its twists; and this movie has various possible interpretations, and it had a unique approach that made me think of some new possibilities.

I possibly liked this movie better than the movie Get Out to my surprise, but I could be wrong.

Jordan Peele has surprised me again.

Dreams

A Machine (Device) That Lets You Connect To Different Dreams (Dream Worlds)? | Mr. World Is My Doppelgänger?

I had more dreams that I can not remember and there were more details to the dreams that I did remember part of from last night, but unfortunately I can only remember a few details so important parts of these dreams are missing.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is that it possibly involved a machine (device) that allowed you to connect to several different dreams and / or dream worlds, maybe something almost like the Portable Automated Somnacin IntraVenous Device from the movie Inception but I can not remember, I assume that there was a machine (device) but I could be wrong.

I remember using this assumed machine (device) to connect to several different dreams and / or dream worlds, and there were at least 5 different dreams and / or dream worlds (there were possibly more).

I would not physically connect to the dreams, my body would still be in the first dream world sitting down sleeping (dreaming) while I assume being maybe connected to the dream machine (device), and then I would connect to another dream or dream world so I would go into a dream within a dream as a dream character.

Unfortunately I can only remember a few details about one of the dreams or dream worlds, which was dream #5 or dream world #5, and this dream or dream world had a glitch where all the dream characters would immediately attack you if they saw you.

I had to kill all the dream characters in dream #5 or dream world #5 to get past this glitch, and after I left that dream or dream world I went to warn others about the glitch and how to get past the glitch.

It seemed that each dream was a set (consistent) dream world that would be the same each time for each person that connects to it, I assume that the dreams would reset each time after someone finishes the dream, but I am not sure.

My parent’s and my brother GC and maybe some other people were there, my brother GC was using the dream machine (device), and so I asked him what dream he was on and then I warned him about dream #5.

I explained to my brother GC how to get past the glitch in dream #5, and then I went to warn everyone else but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that I was in a small windowless apartment, the dream machine (device) from the first dream was in the room, and maybe I had just finished using it.

There were two maybe somewhat older women sitting in the room at two desks and / or tables that were against the wall to the far right side of the room near the dinning room / kitchen using the dream machine (device) from the first dream, and at least one of the women had light-color skin and long hair.

At some point I started to warn the two women about dream #5 (so even in this second dream the dreams that the dream machine (device) made were still the same as in the first dream), I told them about the glitch in that dream, and I started telling them about how to get past the glitch in that dream but then there was a knock at the door or the doorbell rang so I went to the door to look out of the peephole to see who was at the door.

When I looked out of the peephole I saw a man who I recognized as myself (maybe a Doppelgänger), which is strange because the man did not look like how I look in real life at all, but somehow I recognized him as me oddly.

As usual I had no idea how I looked in the dream, usually I do not know what I look like in dreams and I usually do not get to look in mirrors or see my reflection, but somehow I recognized the man as me and / or as looking like me (not the real me in real life).

The man had light-color skin with yellow hair, and I think that he looked like maybe Mr. World from the television show American Gods (and the book American Gods).

This confused me, I recognized the man as myself and that he looked like me (not the real life me), but I was me so it was not possible that he was me so I wondered why did he look like me and who or what was he and what did he want.

I walked to the two women to tell them about this, I changed something about my appearance and / or clothing that I can not remember so that they could tell me apart from the other man and / or (me), and I told them to remember this in case the man (other me) tried to replace me and / or pretend to be me.

I tried to make sure that they remembered this, and then I went back to answer the door.

I barely opened the door to see what the man (other me) wanted, I can not remember what we said to each other, but I do remember stepping into the hall to talk to him because I did not feel comfortable letting him inside the apartment yet.

I am not sure what was said in the hall but at some point I decided to take a risk and let him in the apartment to talk, and so we walked into the apartment and I closed the door.

I obviously did not trust this man (other me) yet but I was willing to take a risk because I wanted to try to make sense of what was going on, but I woke up.
