Jim Mickle's cannibal flick WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, a re-imagining of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name, is gearing up for its limited September 27th release with a set of new stills. For this being a horror film about cannibals, these new images are lacking a surprising amount of all that red stuff we appreciate so much around these parts. Maybe they're saving the best for last?
In WE ARE WHAT WE ARE, Jim Mickle paints a gripping and gruesome portrait of an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive. The film stars Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell, and Kelly McGillis. Take a peak at the pics below!
A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules the roost with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost. As a torrential rainstorm moves into the area, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. The most important task the girls face is putting meat on the table— but not the kind that can be found at the local supermarket. As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.
