3.0 out of 5 stars Good film but beware... February 3, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lamb Sunday December 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This remake of the 2010 Spanish speaking film from Mexico is very different with many changes one of which is the genders of the main characters.This film takes place in the backwoods where as the original was in the inner city.They focus more on religion or what this family has come to know as religion.

The acting was superb ,Bill Sage was exceptionally good as the patriarch of the family " Frank Parker" impressive performances were also turned in by Julia Garner and Ambyr Childers as Iris and Rose Parker ,Frank's two daughters.

The scenery was beautiful and beautifully shot, the dreary, rainy look lent to the Gothic feel of the film.The gore was turned down in comparison to a lot of other films of this nature but they let you have it when really needed.I would give it a 5 on the gore scale of 1-10.the effects ran from very well done to just ok.

The story was given another layer with the always great Michael Parks as the town doctor who's daughter disappears years earlier and due to flooding in the area he finds human remains in the form of bones in the Parker's creek thus leading him on a mission to unfolding the mystery of how and why she went missing.The third act is really exciting as there are showdowns and power struggles leading into a shocking and brutal climax.Both this and the original are good films that I highly recommend.

Very creepy and very spooky because it appears so normal and humdrum. Very well-acted and it sucks you right in from the start. Look out for that dinner scene, it's a doozy. For one of the few times in my life, I'll say that I liked this version better than the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where the Meat Comes From October 25, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
[[SPOILERS]]
I was going to say that 'We Are What We Are' is the best cannibal film I've ever seen, thinking that might be humorous at the microscopic or subatomic level. Then I realized I've seen quite a few movies that prominently featured cannibalism, as well as a surprising contingent for which cannibalism was the central theme: Silence of the Lambs, Ravenous, Alive, Soylent Green, The Hills Have Eyes, Sin City, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wrong Turn, The Road, Motel Hell, and Delicatessen. Then there's an entire sub-species of exploitation film, known simply as 'The Cannibal Genre', which was an Italian phenomenon of the 1970's. And Zombies could be considered dead-ish, rotting cannibals, if you decide to cast the net a little wider... While the competition is quite a bit tougher than I originally thought, I still think this is the best film ABOUT cannibalism I've seen. It approaches an inherently sensationalistic subject with the maturity and simmering reserve of Eastwood's 'Mystic River', refusing to portray the characters as monsters.

This is not a formulaic Hollywood horror flick. It's a haunting and horrifying drama with beautiful cinematography, about a family whose colonial ancestors were driven to Donner party extremes by the harsh winters of a not-so abundant New World. The human mind finds clever ways to let the survivors of such a traumatic ordeal live with what they've done. Justifying it as the will of God, and finding scriptural basis for 'transubstantiating' the act of cannibalism from atrocity to sacred ritual, is actually quite believable. Catholics and Protestants have killed one another over...

4.0 out of 5 stars (BLU RAY REVIEW) Yum... April 28, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought this looking for a horror movie
This movie wasn't scary, but it was incredibly well written and acted. Though it isn't frightening, it is disturbing and I would say its worth a watch.

Annoys you at times with the stupidity of some of the characters, but solid movie nonetheless. Some decently gory moments for fans of that.
