If a film is being backed by THE REVENANT director Alejandro González Iñárritu, you can pretty much have a guarantee that it's going to be hardcore. The upcoming Mexican horror flick WE ARE THE FLESH (TENEMOS LA CARNE) does in fact have his support, but it hardly needs it now that this new trailer has been released. A blood red, topsy-turvy fever dream of apocalyptic intensity, this looks like the low budget horror answer to the original MAD MAX, tossing in a little UNDER THE SKIN and INSIDE for good measure. Check out the NSFW, subtitled trailer below!
WE ARE THE FLESH is set in a post-apocalypse Mexico, where a brother and sister, Lucio and Fauna, wander a ruined city for years in search of food and shelter. They find their way into one of its last surviving buildings, where a man makes them a dangerous offer to survive the outside world. As they help him transform the building into a womb-like cave, a disquieting sexual relationship emerges, along with a dynamic in which darker instincts do their destructive work.
Directed by Emiliano Rocha Minter, WE ARE THE FLESH stars Noé Hernández. There's no release date yet, but rest assured you'll be the first to know.
