The official trailer has been released for director Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are, a remake of the excellent Mexican cannibal horror. Check it out below.
I had the privilege of seeing this film at this years Film4 FrightFest and was absolutely magnificent. HCF writer Matt Wavish will be uploading his review shortly.
While the original film was set in Mexico City, this new version is based in the Catskills region of New York State. Jim Mickle writes and directs the remake, with Nick Damici co-writing. The cast includes Ambyr Childers, Odeya Rush, Kelly McGillis, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell, Julia Garner, Nick Damici and Jack Gore.
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 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 (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.
