This could be the best cannibal movie since Silence of the Lambs. We kid you not. Okay, so the trailer has us hooked, but if the movie is half as good, we can put to rest the horror that was The Hills Have Eyes remake and enjoy our census takers with fava beans and nice bottle of Chianti.
In We Are What We Are, a remake of this Mexican original, a seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank (Bill Sage) 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) and Rose (Julia Garner) 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.
Here’s the poster for the Mexican original, which is its own awesome and deserves your attention:
