Customer Reviews

Great movie done on a low budget.
Sibyl
It is after that time it started to get interesting, but the film was over half way over.
E.Most
Just a strange movie with a weak plot.

This film will not be for everyone. Some might find it slow, others will sense the tension building. You might think you know what is going to happen but you don't. This is such a bizarre combination of indie film art and offbeat horror. I don't how else to describe it. I enjoyed it but was definitely macabre.

There may be spoilers.

I'm going to assume that anyone who is interested in this movie understands what the general theme is. For those of you who don't, cannibalism is involved. So if that isn't what you're looking for in a horror film, you might want to look elsewhere.

While this remake of a 2010 Mexican film certainly qualifies as a horror film, there are no traditional "jump out" scenes and limited gore. The horror is the subject matter and how 2 young sisters, forced by tradition, have to carry out what they believe to be long standing family values. Director Jim Mickle certainly has a handle on drama and horror or to be more precise, suspense. It builds ever so slowly after the Parker family matriarch (Kassie DePaiva) dies mysteriously after fainting and hitting her head on a pipe. She falls into a partially water filled ditch and eventually drowns.

Set in upstate New York, a driving rainstorm causes flooding in the area. This manages to dislodge suspicious artifacts which begin to wash up on a creek bed. Discovered by the local coroner, Doc Barrow (a very good Michael Parks), wonders if they might be clues to the mysterious disappearance of numerous individuals, including his own daughter, over the years. An autopsy of Mrs. Parker provides more clues.

After Mrs. Parker is put to rest, patriarch Frank Parker confronts his two daughters. Iris (Ambyr Childers) is about 16 or 17 and as the oldest must be the chief chef as it were. Younger sister Rose (Julia Garner) is about 14 and takes responsibility for rearing younger brother Rory (Jack Gore). A neighbor, Marge offers to assist Frank but he puts her off. I didn't even recognize Kelly McGillis as Marge.

Format: DVD
Dark, slow but steady film about the apparently normal Parker family, who share a macabre secret ritual. Excellent acting and cinematography bring an immediate realism that really carries this film. WARNING: If gore and grossness get to you, stay away. While WE ARE WHAT WE ARE is not just a constant schlock-fest, there is some pretty disturbing stuff here: Short but graphic scenes of an autopsy, etc.

There's been some debate about whether or not WAWWA is really a horror film, and I would vote a definite "yea" even though the whole mood and atmosphere are different (and better in many ways) than most contemporary horror flicks. There are some elements of suspense, but you know the big "secret" before it's halfway through--the cover also gives a decent hint--so it doesn't exactly work as a mystery. Regardless, the brief flashbacks to the family's ancestors in the 1780s add a great deal.

Though none of the individual elements here are anything that hasn't been done plenty of times before, WAWWA's whole combination of qualities make it a different experience. It's obviously low budget but still far from being another super-amateurish cheapie. The makers of this film did an excellent job with what they had to work with. There are some blank spots--e.g., the body in the water--and a little stronger sense of place would have been nice. At the same time, it's probably better that they don't explain every little thing away.

It was a slow but good story, good actors, and even if soon enough you start to realize what this family dirty secret is, it is still keep you watching until the end...which end was, at least to me, a bit disappointing but I will not tell about it cause it would probably spoiled the entire movie... But if nothing else, you can rent this one... It may be slow but not boring at all, even suspenseful at some point...

This is not a $10 movie, and, after shipping, it is certainly not a $14 movie. Why are we paying $15 dollars for three-star movies? Producers need to make better movies, and/or vendors need to not be so greedy, and/or shipping charges should be cut in half. I enjoy collecting and watching new movies, but, at these prices, I have enough to keep me entertained for a very, very long time. I'm out of the market until something changes.

The premise and positive critical reviews caught my interest so I bought the movie blind for $13. The cinematography is good and the cast brought more to the table than was inherent in their roles as written in the screenplay. Character motivation and background were completely missing. The father's religious fervor didn't ring true - probably because the writers never outlined his tenets. He prays and insists on a weekend long fast but that's about it. As an audience, are we supposed to believe that the "missing persons" plot element has been going on in this small town for years without anyone falling under suspicion? The script just isn't strong enough to justify the 105 minute running time. The first time I tried to watch it I turned it off after 20 minutes. Regretfully, not recommended.
