That Bible Verse in Us

You know I love to dive deep into the smallest details, especially when they involve 1. horror and 2. literature. So I just had to know the significance of that Bible verse held up by the drifter in Jordan Peele’s movie Us as soon as I made it home from the theater.

Here’s the King James Version:

Therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. — Jeremiah 11
