Product Description

Product Description

A seemingly wholesome family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves but behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules the family with a rigorous fervour. When a torrential rainstorm moves in, tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family. Once the local authorities begin to uncover clues, they are brought closer to the secret that the Parkers have held close for so many years.

I was a little dubious about this one, another American remake of a film (Mexican this time) that perhaps doesn't really need remaking. I was sold by the fact it's directed by Jim Mickle, the man behind the excellent Stake Land (check it out). Well I'm glad I gave it a go, I felt We Are What We Are was a gritty, grisly horror/thriller and well worth the trip.

The plot focuses mainly on the Parker family, who live in a rural American town. After Mrs Parker passes away early on in the piece, we're left with the domineering father, Frank, with his two daughters and young son. There's something not quite right about this family though relating to Franks insistence on following some strange rituals. More is revealed about this as we go, prompted by a storm and flood and some curious locals.

I won't say anymore about the plot, I think it's better to go in fresh if you don't already know too much. What follows is a creepy, atmospheric, slow burning chiller - it's not fast paced and is not built on action set pieces but can bring a little carnage when required. The acting is of a good standard all round, especially surprisingly excellent turns from some of the younger cast members.

Recommended from me but perhaps don't watch it around mealtimes.

We Are What We Are is a remake of the 2010 Mexican Horror film of the same name. While the original was a solid film in its own right, the remake improves many aspects of the original, I actually enjoyed both films as each gave us a similar plot but with a different perspective. After their mother dies in a tragic slip where she ends up drowning in a ditch, the young girls of the Parker Family are not only left to take care of their distraught father and oblivious younger brother, but to tend to the family traditions, most of which involved butchering young girls and eating them, because God says so. The Parker clan lives a simple life in the Catskills, serving God and doing their best to avoid notice. When the same torrential rainstorm that threw their ailing mother in a ditch starts washing old human bones downstream, the local Doctor (and Coroner?) starts to question just what is up with the clan, and if they had anything to do with the recent disappearance of his daughter. With a dead mother, a shaky and creepy dad, a nosy neighbor and the town Doctor and Police asking too many questions, the daughters of the Parker Family take up their duties and do their best to uphold a family tradition that really shows just how messed up their family is. Nastiness and uncomfortable dinner scenes ensue. Those who don't like slow burn films probably won't enjoy this film, some parts admittedly were a bit slow however it does improve during the second half as the tone of the film quickly becomes darker and more disturbing. The opening scene of the movie sets the tone and a fairly high quality bar for the movie.Read more ›

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Iris and Rose Parker are a couple of strait-laced sisters aged in their early teens, who live in a quiet hick town in the Catskills. Their middle-aged mother dies in a freak drowning incident, leaving their forty-something father Frank as the head of the family. They have a very timid and taciturn younger brother, who's aged about eight.
The Parkers are an insular, reclusive and God-fearing family. They also practice cannibalism. After the premature death of their 47 year old mother, the two girls are mandated by their domineering father to carry on the family tradition of butchery. During a torrential downpour, a river bursts its banks and washes the remains of human skeletons downstream into the village, whereupon the local doctor comes across one of the human bones in a puddle...
This movie has the look and feel of a film adaptation of a Stephen King novel even though it isn't one. It's somewhat handicapped by lazy pacing and builds its story in a languorous fashion. The Parker family are actually a little bit dull, especially if you compare them to a genuinely scary and memorable family like the one in House Of 1000 Corpses (Rob Zombie), and they're not exactly convincing as a family of human flesh-eating freaks.
This film isn't an exploitation cannibal gore-fest like Cannibal Holocaust or Cannibal Ferox, and it's not a schlock horror or black comedy about cannibalism like Eating Raoul. It has the vibe of a slow-paced thriller and the story of cannibalism isn't visualised in a way that creates any shocks or scares.
However, the acting is undeniably good, the film score is excellent, it's nicely shot, and the story is passable.

Format: DVD
‘We Are What We Are’ is a ‘remake’ of a Mexican horror film. Now, I haven’t seen the original, but – according to other reviewers who have – this new version only really borrows the basic source material and puts its own American spin on it. I can’t compare the two, but, as it began, I had high hopes for it.

It’s about a family in a small American town who, after the mother of the family dies suddenly, start to have to face up to life without her. This would be hard enough, but this family are also cannibals who believe in eating humans as part of their religion.

It’s a horror movie. However, in Hollywood it seems that there are only really two types of horror films these days – zombie outbreaks and Japanese-inspired ghosts who terrorise single parents. Perhaps I’ve got a bit too used to those two variations of the genre and couldn’t really appreciate this one. It doesn’t conform to many of today’s horror films. It’s well-shot, subtly acted and oozes brooding menace. These are all plus points for the film, but the only thing that struck me was how slow it was. After about half an hour I was praying for someone to impale someone else on a chainsaw. By an hour I was struggling to recall a single pertinent event at all!

Kelly McGillis deserves a special mention as the local doctor who figures that there’s more going on in this town than he can put his finger on, but, despite his excellent performance, it still doesn’t move things on as fast as I was hoping it would.

I hope I haven’t become completely immune to subtle horror, as, deep down, I know this film was actually quite good. I just wanted it to speed up a little bit more. You really have to be in the mood for something slow to sit down and watch this.
