We-Are-What-We-Are

In the same way Let The Right One In reinvented the vampire brand and [Rec] put a clever twist on the epedemic /zombie film, We Are What We Are reinvigorates the cannibal genre with an emotional portrait of a family bound by a terrible secret and driven by monstrous appetites. This of course, is a remake of the excellent Mexican horror film of the same name. We’ve been covering it since it premiered at Sundance and it seems everyone here at Sound On Sight is a big fan. Ed Doyle just dropped a review of the film which screened at Frightfest this week saying, “The director understands all too well the importance of cinematic catharsis. Whereas other filmmakers at Frightfest have eagerly blown their bloody wad in the opening minutes, Mickle instead plants the idea of his physical horrors in our minds well before we’re granted any supreme visual confirmation of their perpetration”.

Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis, Nick Damici, Wyatt Russell, and Jack Gore star.  Directed by Jim Mickle (Stake Land), We Are What We Are opens in limited release on September 27.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

 

 

Official synopsis: 

A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers, have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage, Boardwalk Empire) rules his family with a rigorous ferver, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost.  As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris (Ambyr Childers, The Master) and Rose (Julia Garner, Martha Marcy May Marlene) are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family.  As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.

We Are What We Are also stars Michael Parks (Django Unchained), Golden Globe nominee Kelly McGillis (Witness, Top Gun), Nick Damici (Stake Land), Wyatt Russell (This Is 40) and newcomer Jack Gore. We Are What We Are was written by Mickle and Damici.  The two previously collaborated on the screenplays for Mickle’s first two features, Mulberry Street and Stake Land (winner of the “Midnight Madness” Audience Award at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival).

A re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, director Jim Mickle paints a gripping portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive.
