Ever since Jordan Peele first exploded onto the horror scene with his Oscar-nominated debut film Get Out, film fans everywhere have been excited to see what he’ll do next. Then the first reports about Us started surfacing, fueling even more Peele mania. Currently Us is set to hit theaters on March 22nd of this year. However, those planning on attending this year’s South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas will have the opportunity to see it a little sooner instead – on March 8th.

Like Get Out, Us promises to be socially relevant and come attached to Peele’s celebrated knack for mixing humor with high-octane dread and nail-biting terror. It also features a super-talented cast that includes Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) and Winston Duke (Black Panther) as protagonists Adelaide and Gabe Wilson. Other memorable names on the roster include Elisabeth Moss of The Handmaid’s Tale and Tim Heidecker of Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The actual premise of the film follows the Wilson family, as well as their close friends, over the course of what should have been a relaxing beach vacation spent in the company of loved ones. However, it quickly becomes anything but when a mysterious gang of doppelgangers infiltrates the Wilsons’ home, terrorizing everyone in the process. Who are these doppelgangers, how did they get here, and what do they want from the Wilsons?

In other words, Us looks like it’s just about guaranteed to be worth your time if you’re a fan of Jordan Peele or couldn’t get enough of Get Out. If you’re the type of person who likes to see the next big film before anyone else, make sure you’re at SXSW this March 8th for the premiere of Us.
