‘Nope’ Review – One of Us

2 Minute Read

Is Jordan Peele’s new sci-fi horror movie worth the ticket price? Find out with the One of Us crew’s Nope review.

Writer/Director Jordan Peele returns with his third feature film horror movie, Nope. Reuniting with the star of his debut feature Get Out, Daniel Kaluuya plays OJ Haywood. He and his sister Em (Keke Palmer) in the wake of their father’s sudden death, are left to run his ranch where they raise horses to train to be in films, tv shows, and commercials.

Money is tight and OJ finds himself having to ‘temporarily’ sell off horses to the local wild-west attraction Jupiter’s Claim run by former child tv star Jupe (Steven Yeun) and his wife. But an unusual solution may have poked it’s huge grey head up when OJ and Em start realizing there appears to be a flying saucer that has been circling their ranch and hiding just out of sight. If they could just get it on film! Unfortunately for them, this situation is much more dark and disturbing than it initially appears to be and things go sideways pretty fast.
