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 (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 "Thank you for the sustenance we receive" April 14, 2014
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars DECENT MOVIE BUT... February 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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...

We Are What We Are (Jim Mickle, 2013)

Less than a minute into Jim Mickle's reimagining—one cannot call it a remake with a straight face—of Jorge Grau's fine 2010 film Somos lo que Hay, he has already made it plain to the viewer who has seen the previous film that We Are What We Are is a different movie indeed. The two movies start with the same event; the death of the head of a family. While that death is never explained in the 2010 film (the family gets a visit from the coroner about two-thirds of the way through this version with a cause of death, not that it matters), the two of them are virtually identical in the method in which each family member dies; it starts with a nosebleed, descends quickly into convulsions, and within seconds that person has shuffled off this mortal coil. It is the circumstances surrounding the two deaths that make all the difference. When Papa does in the 2010 film, he is in a large city. He is surrounded by people, yet he is utterly alone and anonymous. (One of the movie's finest, funniest, blackest scenes is the revelation of what happens to him after his death, which takes place in the following minute or so.) In the 2013 film, Emma Parker (Evil Dead II's Kassie DePaiva) is trying to beat a coming storm in a small backwoods town somewhere in Appalachia, frantically grabbing groceries, but still managing to have time to have a conversation with the clerk at the general store. (Yes, this town is small enough to still have a general store.) In the space of a couple of minutes, Jim Mickle has changed the sex of the dying parent and the type of city in which the family lives. This should be creating a string of “what if?”s in the head of any viewer who has seen the original movie. It is to Jim Mickle (Mulberry St.

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.
