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.

3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to like this more 28 Jun 2014
‘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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A family that dines together... 26 Mar 2014
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 ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Gothic & Melancholy storytelling... 28 Nov 2013
It's essentially a movie about family loyalty & commitment with some 'meaty' undertones... when their mother dies, the father & his two daughters & his son learn to cope without her, it's business as usual as they say. With a backdrop of missing persons & a book about family ritual regarding the 17th Century, the movie explores the girls increasing frustrating relationship with their father & their traditions, they should be dating boys & doing what girls do & you feel they are missing out on their adolescence years, the son is very young & seems oblivious to his family traditions & he eats what his sisters prepare for him.

The first half of the movie is by far the best, the build up of tension is deliberate & it keeps you wondering, as the movie progresses I found myself losing interest, the missing persons story wasn't delved into enough & it dragged in parts in the middle towards a very bloody finale.

The acting & directing is very good, the score is by Jeff Grace who also did the music to The House Of The Devil & their are some creative gory death scenes in the film, their is a creepy scene when the son goes down into the basement, their is also an unnecessary simulated sex scene in the film which I thought seemed redundant for the latter part of the movie.

Overall, it is a bleak movie, it seems to never stop raining, their are religious undertones & a sense of dread, the backdrop of this film reminded me of the film A Killing Affair 1986 (aka: My Sisters Keeper), it was also set in a rural small town America & was very downbeat.

A good gothic horror movie. The mood was dark, depressing and claustrophobic, giving the movie an air of menace, and suspense. Read more
