Jordan Peele’s Us has made its nearly-record breaking debut, and star Lupita Nyong’o has been wearing some seriously creepy red carpet looks in promotion of the film.

The star has been sporting colored contacts, dark makeup and statement outfits that makes us wonder if the film has turned her to the dark side.

We’re definitely getting some inspo from her and we hope she continues with the sinister vibes.

As previously stated, Us nearly broke the record for best preview night for a horror film, with 2018’s Halloween barely beating it out by $300,000.

The film surpassed preview nights of The Nun ($5.4 million) and A Quiet Place ($4.3 million). Outside of the horror realm, Us even beat out the preview nights for major Marvel films such as Thor: Dark World ($7.1 million) and Ant-Man ($6.4 million).

Before it’s debut, the Peele snagged a second, and very rare by the way, 100 percent rating with the film on Rotten Tomatoes after his first with Get Out.

Us stars Nyong’o (Black Panther), Duke (Black Panther), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid’s Tale) and Tim Heidecker (Ant-Man And The Wasp). The film later announced additional cast members. Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon and Duke Nicholson (Jack Nicholson’s grandson) are also in the cast.

Recently, Peele opened up to Vanity Fair about the film. The director gave a bit more background information into the plot.

The idea behind Us came from when he was a student in upstate New York. Every time he got out of  the midnight train, he would always imagine himself seeing his mirror image looking back at him in a tunnel.

“It was one of these nightmarish things, that creepy feeling of, ‘I’ve got to get out of here because I don’t know what is coming,’” Peele says.

When he further explored this fear, he realized that one of the scariest things for humans is a fear of ourselves. He added that the film is inspired by some of his favorite horror films, but changes the main characters for the audience to see something they’ve never seen before.

“I want to see a black family on the beach, goddamnit!” he says. “I want to see a black family buy a boat. That happens. And we’ve never seen it.”

See Us in theaters now.
