We Are What We Are

2We Are What We Are is coming to select UK cinemas on 28th February 2014. A uniquely disturbing tale from the director of Stake Land, Jim Mickle brings a tense, heartbreaking and dramatic horror to life in this beautifully told tale of family, tradition and death.

With breakout performances from Bill Sage (Boardwalk Empire) and newcomers Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Ambyr Childers (The Master), We Are What We Are is an undeniably stylised piece of cinema. Also starring Kelly McGillis (Top Gun) and Michael Parks (Argo).

The Parkers are a seemingly wholesome family but patriarch Frank rules over them with a rigorous fervour. When tragedy strikes and his daughters Iris and Rose are forced to assume terrifying responsibilities that extend beyond those of a typical family, the local authorities begin to uncover clues to a horrible truth that the Parkers have hidden for so many years.

A remake of the 2010 Mexican movie of the same name We Are What We Are is directed by Jim Mickle who follows up the critically acclaimed horror Stake Land with a masterpiece in tension and style. We Are What We Are won us and audiences over at Film4 Frightfest 2013 with it’s gut wrenching characterisation, breakthrough performances and direction.
