Jordan Peele’s “Us” debuted over the weekend with $70.3 million in ticket sales, taking over the top spot at the box office from “Captain Marvel.”

“Us” stars Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke as vacationing parents whose family is faced with eerie doppelgangers of themselves. 

Primarily based in Santa Cruz, the film shows the city’s popular boardwalk as a huge component of the story’s plot. 

Many people, from natives to UC Santa Cruz students, took to Twitter to voice their newfound fear of the landmark. 

“i saw the movie ‘us’ last night and let’s just say i’m never going to the santa cruz beach boardwalk at night again,” @Ben28x tweeted.
