Frank Parker is a formidable and highly religious man who takes his family traditions very seriously. He, his wife and two daughters Rose and Iris live comfortably in a small shack in a remote part of the Delaware County, but their security is threatened when a disastrous storm strikes and the river begins to flood. Mrs Parker suffers from a rare neurological disease and soon passes away leaving her family devastated. They vow to carry on the family customs, however, as Frank lands Iris with a huge responsibility. They are ritualistic cannibals, and she must be the one to bring in the food this time. However, when bones wash up on a nearby river bank after the floods, the authorities are drawn near and suspicion starts to arise surrounding the mysterious family.
'We Are What We Are' is a grisly remake of the 2010 Mexican horror movie directed and written by Jorge Michel Grau. It has been adapted by Jim Mickle ('Stake Land', 'Mulberry St') who co-wrote the screenplay with his frequent collaborator Nick Damici ('Fast Horses') and both a sequel and a prequel have already been announced. It made its world premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and is now available to the public.
Starring: Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Wyatt Russell, Kelly McGillis, Michael Parks
